LOS ANGELES (AP) - Blake Griffin had 27 points and 14 rebounds, and the Los Angeles Clippers made it consecutive 50-win seasons with a lackluster 106-98 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night.

The Clippers became the ninth NBA team to have different head coaches guide a club to 50 victories in back-to-back seasons. They reached the mark five games earlier under Doc Rivers than they did last season under Vinny Del Negro, when they set a franchise record with 56 wins and captured their first division title before losing to Memphis in the opening round of the playoffs.

This is Rivers' fifth 50-win season as a head coach, including four with Boston.

Chris Paul had 14 points and seven assists for the Clippers, who have won 13 of 14 overall and a season-best eight straight at home.
