LOS ANGELES (AP) -

Jamal Crawford led a fourth-quarter rally with 13 of his 21 points, and the Los Angeles Clippers beat Phoenix 117-99 on Saturday, winning their fifth in a row while sending the Suns to their season-worst sixth straight loss.

Blake Griffin added 24 points, and Chris Paul had 16 points and 11 assists. Crawford made all four of his free throws to extend his streak to 55 in a row since Nov. 3.

Michael Beasley scored 21 points off the bench, and Shannon Brown added 19 for Phoenix, which hadn't lost six in a row since March 3-12, 2009.

The Clippers broke out in the final quarter after not leading by more than seven points through the first three periods. And they did it with their reserves, who scored every point.
