From NBA.com: Despite a monster performance from Blake Griffin, the Los Angeles Clippers dropped their first test of a challenging stretch and ended their home win streak at seven games.

The Clippers will try to get back on track Friday night when they host the Atlantic Division-leading Toronto Raptors in the second of a five-game homestand that features a handful of the NBA’s elite.

Griffin scored a season-high 43 points and pulled down 16 rebounds Wednesday, but it wasn’t enough in a 116-112 loss to Miami. The Heat, who lead the Southeast, were the first of several top teams that will visit during a homestand bridging the All-Star break.
