Clippers aiming for homecourt advantage as they host Jazz

LOS ANGELES -- With a playoff spot in hand, the Los Angeles Clippers will continue their chase for homecourt advantage when they meet the Sacramento Kings on Sunday at Staples Center.

Los Angeles (44-30) clinched its franchise-record sixth consecutive postseason berth Saturday with a 108-95 victory over the Utah Jazz at Staples behind Jamal Crawford's 28 points, 17 of those coming in the fourth quarter. The win allowed the Clippers to close within a half-game of the Jazz for the fourth seed in the Western Conference.

"It was important," Clippers forward Blake Griffin said of beating the Jazz, two days after the Dallas Mavericks ended a three-game winning streak by Los Angeles. "Even in Dallas, I thought the spirit of our defense, and even our offense at times, was better than it had been in previous (games), Milwaukee, Minnesota, whichever game you want to pick. Our talk, our trust defensively was good in Dallas and tonight it was even better."
