Redick’s career-high 40 help Clippers beat Rockets in OT
LOS ANGELES (AP) Sharp-shooting J.J. Redick scored a career-high 40 points and the Los Angeles Clippers made a franchise-record 22 3-pointers in a 140-132 overtime win against the Houston Rockets on Monday night.
Redick connected on his first five attempts behind the arc and finished 9 for 12 on 3-pointers, tying Caron Butler's club record for 3s and coming within three makes of the NBA single-game record shared by Kobe Bryant and Donyell Marshall.
Chris Paul had 28 points and 12 assists for the Clippers. He and Redick each made 3-pointers while the Clippers opened overtime on a 9-2 run.
Dwight Howard had 36 points and tied a career high with 26 rebounds en route to his 10th straight double-double, the league's longest active streak, and his longest since a 14-game run three seasons ago. He secured it before halftime with 13 points and 15 boards.
