Reserve guard Matt Barnes led the scoring with 21 points as the Los Angeles Clippers beat the visiting Boston Celtics 106-77 for their 15th consecutive win.

The last NBA squad to win 15 in a row was the 2008-2009 Celtics.

Besides Barnes, three other Clippers scored in double-digits while playmaker Chris Paul logged 11 assists to boost the team's record to 23-6, the best in the league.

Lamar Odom, looking more like the player of his glory days with the Lakers, snagged 13 rebounds.

The Clippers haven't lost since Nov. 26, when they fell 105-98 on the road against the New Orleans Hornets.

The Celtics, who have lost five of their last seven, were inferior in every facet of the game, coughing up the ball 18 times compared with only eight giveaways by the Clippers.

The Oklahoma City Thunder topped the Dallas Mavericks in overtime by a score of 111-105 in Thursday night's other NBA game. Kevin Durant led the winning side with 40 points, eight rebounds and five assists. EFE
