When it became clear Blake Griffin wasn't injured in the third quarter, the Clippers felt much better about their chances of beating a short-handed Brooklyn Nets team Saturday night at Staples Center.

Griffin had a strong game throughout, collecting a double-double with 30 points and 12 rebounds in helping the Clippers to a 110-103 victory over the Nets.

Chris Paul struggled most of the game, but he produced his 10th consecutive double-double, scoring 12 points and handing out 13 assists. Paul also had seven rebounds.

Paul was three for 12 from the field, but his two field goals late in the fourth helped the Clippers win their fourth consecutive game.

"We didn't play with a lot of energy. You could see that," said Clippers Coach Doc Rivers. "We turned it on and won the game. I'm happy about that."

After Griffin grabbed a rebound in the third quarter, he began to limp downcourt after rolling his left foot. He went to the locker room with trainer Jasen Powell with 7:30 left in the third.

The Clippers were down, 65-54, when Griffin departed.

Griffin came back to the court with 5:15 left in the third and checked back into the game with 4:48 left in the third.

Then Griffin made his entrance into the game in style. He blocked a shot by Mason Plumlee and then raced downcourt for a layup that he was fouled on.

Griffin, who was 12 for 19 from the field, made the free throw for a three-point play that tied the score at 67-67 in the third.
