Jamal Crawford paced seven different Clippers in double figures leading Los Angeles to a 123-110 win over the Pelicans in New Orleans.

Crawford nailed seven shots from the three-point arc for a game-high 24 points. Crawford is sizzling coming off of a 36 point effort - including five threes - in Sunday's win over the Thunder in Oklahoma City.

"Crawford's been great" said Clippers head coach Doc Rivers of his sixth man who is still in the starting lineup for J.J. Redick who is out with a bulging disk in his back. "The thing that Jamal's doing is he's taking his shots and if it's not there he's moving it."

Former New Orleans Hornet Chris Paul had 19 points and 13 assists while Blake Griffin added 22 points for the Clippers (39-20).

L.A. center DeAndre Jordan was "Bill Russell-esque" once again working an impressive double-double draining 14 points to go along with 16 rebounds. Matt Barnes, Darren Collison and Hedo Turkoglu each added 12 points.

"I was really happy with Turk tonight" said Rivers about Turkoglu. He continued, "He was just aggressive. He wasn't playing great or bad.He was just aggressive."

For the Pelicans (23-33), Anthony Davis led New orleans with 26 points and eleven boards. Alexis Ajinca also worked a double-double in a losing effort with 19 points and 12 rebounds. Both efforts are career-highs.

The Clippers take two of three on this short road trip to the south.

Forward Glen "Big Baby" Davis signed earlier in the day by Los Angeles was in uniform but did not play. He'll make his Clipper debut when they return to Staples Center Wednesday night to host Dwight Howard and the Houston Rockets. Tip-off is set for 7:40.
