The Los Angeles Clippers thrash the Denver Nuggets 117-105 to remain in the hunt for second place in the Western Conference.

The Los Angeles Clippers have cruised to their 57th win of the NBA season, beating the Denver Nuggets 117-105.

JJ Redick and Chris Paul got the Clippers off to a good start, leading them to a 12-point advantage by the end of the first quarter.

Blake Griffin finished the night as the team's top scorer with 24 points, but will miss their final game of the regular season after committing his 16th technical foul of the season, giving him a mandatory one-game suspension.

Kenneth Faried and Timofey Mozgov tried to rally the Nuggets in the third quarter, allowing them to cut the home side's lead by nine, but they could not keep up in the final 12 minutes.

The result leaves the Clippers in with a chance of overtaking the Oklahoma City Thunder to finish second in the Western Conference.
