DeAndre Jordan scored 20 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead the Los Angeles Clippers to their 50th win of the NBA season, a 126-101 triumph over the Phoenix Suns.

Chris Paul added 15 points, 12 assists and four steals for the Clippers, who snapped a three-game skid to finally reach 50 wins for the first time in franchise history.

The club's previous highest win total in a season was 49, when they were the Buffalo Braves in the 1974-75 campaign.

Six Clippers players scored in double figures, but that did not include star Blake Griffin, who scored just nine points on 4-of-7 shooting.

The Clippers can clinch their first Pacific Division title with a win over their cross-town rivals the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday -- or if the Golden State Warriors lose at Phoenix on Friday.
