Chris Paul scored 25 points in his second game back from injury, reserve Jamal Crawford had 27 and the Los Angeles Clippers beat the New York Knicks 102-88 on Sunday.

Carmelo Anthony had 42 points in his fifth 40-point game of the season for the Knicks, but made only one field goal in the fourth quarter as 40-year-old Grant Hill came off the Clippers' bench to defend him.

Blake Griffin finished with 17 points and 12 rebounds for the Clippers, who bounced back from a 22-point loss in Miami on Friday to win for just the fourth time in 12 games.

They finish off their eight-game Grammys road trip Monday in Philadelphia.
