Blake Griffin posted the third triple-double of his career and added a spectacular windmill dunk as the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Bucks, 117-101, on Wednesday night at the Staples Center.

Griffin finished with 23 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists to pace the Clippers, who dominated the paint and from the perimeter.

Jamal Crawford paced the Clippers (44-19) with 25 points on 11-of-16 shooting and Matt Barnes added 20 points and sank 6 of 11 three-pointers.

"We just couldn't stop them, any which way," Bucks forward Mike Dunleavy said. "First half or second half. In the paint, outside the paint. Threes. You name it. We just were bad, for lack of a better term.

"We just couldn't get it together defensively. Give them credit, too. They're a smart team, a veteran team. That's why they're one of the best in the league."

The Bucks (30-29) had a four-game winning streak snapped despite shooting 48.1% from the field. But they allowed the Clippers to shoot 54% (47 of 87).

Monta Ellis paced the Bucks with 22 points and Ersan Ilyasova added 20.

"We tried to help from the top (on Griffin)," Ilyasova said. "But he made good reads. He just kicked the ball out to the three-point line and on this night they shot a heck of a percentage.
