LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jared Dudley scored a season-high 21 points, Chris Paul added 16 points and 17 assists, and the Los Angeles Clippers jumped all over the Chicago Bulls in Derrick Rose’s absence for a 121-82 victory Sunday.

J.J. Redick scored 19 points and Blake Griffin had 15 points and 12 rebounds in the Pacific Division-leadingClippers’ seventh win in nine games.

Los Angeles finished strong in a stretch of four games in five days, posting the biggest margin of victory over Chicago in franchise history.

Luol Deng scored 22 points as the Bulls got off to a rough start to their latest stretch without Rose, who tore cartilage in his right knee Friday night in Portland.
