NEW YORK (AP) Chris Paul scored 25 points in his second game back from injury, reserve Jamal Crawford had 27 and the Los Angeles Clippers beat the New York Knicks 102-88 on Sunday.

Carmelo Anthony had 42 points in his fifth 40-point game of the season for the Knicks, but made only one field goal in the fourth quarter as 40-year-old Grant Hill came off the Clippers' bench to defend him.

Blake Griffin finished with 17 points and 12 rebounds for the Clippers, who bounced back from a 22-point loss in Miami on Friday to win for just the fourth time in 12 games. They finish off their eight-game Grammys road trip Monday in Philadelphia.
