Caron Butler scored 29 points for Los Angeles, with Chris Paul and Jamal Crawford contributing 19 points apiece at Staples Center as the Clippers moved to 16-0 for December.

This meant that they joined the 1995-96 San Antonio Spurs and 1971-72 Lakers as the only teams to record a perfect month.

Al Jefferson poured in a game-high 30 points however; this could not prevent Utah from slipping to a third loss in a row.

Meanwhile, San Antonio were another team to continue their good form, stretching their winning run to five games with a 111-86 victory over Dallas at the American Airlines Center.

Tony Parker scored 21 points, Manu Ginobili 20 and Tim Duncan 18 as the Spurs sentenced the Mavericks to a sixth consecutive defeat.

Elsewhere, Detroit blew a 14-point lead before edging past Milwaukee 96-94.

Finally, Isaiah Thomas' 27 points elevated the Sacramento Kings to a 118-96 triumph over Boston and sent the Celtics tumbling to a third straight loss.
