Clippers Beat Jazz for 17th Straight NBA Win, Unbeaten December

Dec. 31 (Bloomberg) -- The Los Angeles Clippers beat the Utah Jazz 107-96 to push their winning streak to 17 games and become the third team in National Basketball Association history with a 16-0 record in a single month.

Caron Butler scored 29 points last night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles while Chris Paul and Jamal Crawford added 19 each for the Clippers, who are an NBA-best 25-6 this season.

The Clippers’ winning streak is the league’s longest since the Boston Celtics won 19 games in a row during the 2008-09 campaign. They join the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers and 1995-96 San Antonio Spurs as the only NBA teams to go 16-0 in a month.

The Clippers next play tomorrow at the Denver Nuggets.
