It has become Chris Paul’s mission since he joined the team to erase, or at least surpass, every record in franchise history.
Paul took another step Monday night when the Clippers defeated the Detroit Pistons, 88-76. It was the Clippers’ 10th straight win, their longest such streak since the team has been in Los Angeles and the longest overall since it won 11 straight as the Buffalo Braves in 1974.
The Clippers swept a four-game road trip for the first time in franchise history and now are 18-6, their best start in franchise history. The Clippers sit atop the Pacific Division with an eight-game lead on the Los Angeles Lakers and are tied with the Miami Heat for the second-best record in the NBA.
So what does it all mean?
