SALT LAKE CITY -- After spraining his ankle, Chris Paul might have lost some quickness. He compensated with determination. Paul shook off the injury and the teams early sluggishness to score 18 points and extend the Los Angeles Clippers winning streak to 10 with a 96-87 victory over the Utah Jazz on Friday night. "I knew I had just had to find a way," Paul said. "We already said at halftime, its not going to be pretty every night, but stay the course and find a way to win." Before Paul got hurt, it certainly wasnt pretty and the Clippers struggled. Blake Griffin had 20 points, even though he never got into a comfortable flow. "Its never an easy game coming into a place like this," he said. "You cant relax and walk into a building and think youll just win because of who you are or what you done, or a streak youre on." Los Angeles had its lowest points total during the streak, but the Clippers won this time with defence, forcing 20 turnovers by the Jazz that led to 31 points. "Thats what we kept saying in the huddle, Lets play our defence!" Paul said. "Early in the game, it was like they were just in a rocking chair. They were swinging it and getting everything they wanted." The Jazz led 70-60 in the third quarter, but the Clippers capitalized on a rash of Utah miscues and poor shot selection to go on a 20-2 run. "We locked in. The intensity and the effort was finally there," Griffin said. In the midst of the surge, Paul landed awkwardly after scoring and sprained his left ankle. "It was the freakiest thing ever. I layed it up and no one was around me but when I landed, my left foot was on the stanchion," said Paul, who returned after quickly getting the ankle taped between the third and fourth quarters. The point guard limped up and down the court, but still quarterbacked the Clippers come-from-behind-third quarter burst. He had seven points and three assists in the six-minute run that ended with Will Greens 3-pointer with 10:37 to play that made it 80-72. Griffins inside basket extended the lead to 85-74 before the Jazz made one final surge. Hayward made a 3-pointer that closed the gap to 90-85 with 3:25 remaining, but the Jazz couldnt score again until 24 seconds remained and the game was decided. Trey Burke had 18 points -- his third straight with at least that many -- and Derrick Favours also scored 18, but the Jazz made only seven of 19 fourth-period shots and have dropped eight of nine contests. The Clippers scored an average of 115 points a game in their previous nine, but were sluggish early against Utah. The Jazz led by as many as 13 in the first half as they played with more energy than theyve shown in the past several games. One thrilling sequence exemplified Utahs determination near the end of the half. Jeremy Evans and Gordon Hayward blocked back-to-back fast-break layups by the Clippers and brought the crowd to its feet. "Our biggest area of growth will be maintaining that type of intensity throughout the game and playing that way for 48 minutes," Burke said. The Clippers missed the shooting and playmaking of Jamal Crawford (calf), but turned to their stars, Paul and Griffin, to bring them back and claim their ninth straight against the Jazz. "Chris started being more aggressive," Los Angeles coach Doc Rivers said. "I think sometimes he wants to be the point guard, but tonight we needed his scoring." Griffin ranks fourth in the league with more than 28 points per game since Feb. 3 and has now scored at least 20 points in 25 consecutive games, the second-longest current streak in the NBA. But it was defence that turned the tide. "It was definitely a defensive thing," Griffin said. Matt Barnes contributed 15 points and Darren Collison had 14 as the Clippers set a season-high for fast-break points with 31. "Were tough to guard in transition. Blake makes some great decisions," Paul said. Starting in place of injured Marvin Williams (back), Enes Kanter had 11 points and 15 rebounds, but shot just 5 for 17 for the Jazz. "In the second half, they were just aggressive and we couldnt match them," Kanter said. NOTES: In honour of the upcoming St. Patricks Day holiday, the Jazz wore their road green uniforms.

LOUIS - Brian Elliott was a big Toronto Maple Leafs fan while growing up in Ontario. So the St. Louis Blues goalie got a little extra satisfaction out of shutting them out.Elliott stopped 27 shots for his third shutout of the season and 28th of his career as the Blues topped the slumping Maple Leafs 3-0 on Saturday night.Its awesome, Elliott said. Its all about the two points, but I grew up bleeding blue for the Maple Leafs. Its fun to go out and get a shutout against them for sure.After allowing three goals in each of his last two games, Elliott got back on track with his 19th shutout for the Blues.Blues defenceman Alex Pietrangelo said there was never any doubt about Elliotts play.Weve had no questions inside this room, Pietrangelo said. We know what he can do. Tonights a prime example; outstanding performance by him. I thought we did a great job, too, eliminating second chance opportunities. Hes pushing pucks where they cant get them and were clearing in front of the net.Its a good overall effort defensively.Elliott, who missed nearly five weeks earlier this season with a knee sprain, moved to the top spot in the NHL in goals against average at 1.90 and fourth in save percentage at .929.Blues coach Ken Hitchcock thought Elliott was back at the top of his game.This is, for me, the best hes played, Hitchcock said. Not just because he got a shutout, but this is the best hes played since coming back from the injury, for sure. He had work today because we gave up odd-man rushes. We dont normally do that, but we gave up some.Alexander Steen extended his scoring streak to a career-high nine games with a goal and an assist, and Kevin Shattenkirk and T.J. Oshie also had goals for St. Louis. The win was No. 685 for Hitchcock, who passed former Maple Leafs coach Pat Quinn and moved into sole possession of fifth place on the career victories list.St. Louis is 4-0-1 during its seven-game homestand and has earned a point in eight straight games. The Blues, who have not lost to Toronnto since Jan.dddddddddddd 29, 2008 (6-0-2), are 11-3-2 against Eastern Conference teams, best in the NHL.David Backes added two assists for the Blues, extending his scoring streak to six games. Backes has 13 points in those six games (seven goals, six assists).Jonathan Bernier made 30 saves for the Maple Leafs, who went 0-4 on their four-game road trip and were outscored 12-1, including being shut out three times. The Maple Leafs are 1-7 in January.Its frustrating, Bernier said. We go back home after we score one goal and get no points. I know I have got to be better and make that extra save that keeps us in the game.Toronto got the jump on the Blues, outshooting them 15-6 at the start. But the Blues got the first goal when Shattenkirk got the puck on the right boards, walked into the right circle and beat Bernier with a backhander at 16:40 of the first period.There were some positive things in the first period before they scored that goal, said Toronto interim head coach Peter Horachek. We are a team that has to be at our strongest now. Were going to have to be mentally tougher.It stayed 1-0 until Steen beat Bernier with another backhander from in front 1:38 into the third period.Hes extremely patient as a goalie, and doesnt really bite on a lot of stuff, said Steen, who waited out Bernier and then lifted the puck over him. I was just trying to wait as long as I could.Steen then set up Oshie on a 2-on-1 with 5 minutes left for the final margin.NOTES: Defenceman Roman Polak, who spent eight seasons with the Blues before being traded to Toronto for fellow defenceman Carl Gunnarsson in the off-season, returned to St. Louis for the first time and received a big ovation when announced as a starter before the game. ... The Blues line of Steen, Backes and Oshie has 49 points in the past 11 games. ... Torontos Phil Kessel played in his 410th straight game, which is the fifth-longest current streak. ...
