SALT LAKE CITY -- Byron Mullens scored 15 points, DeAndre Jordan had 14 points and seven rebounds, and Blake Griffin added 12 points in limited minutes to lead the Los Angeles Clippers to a 106-74 win over the Utah Jazz on Saturday night.

Richard Jefferson had 13 points and eight rebounds to lead the Jazz, and Alec Burks added 12 points.

Utah rookie point guard Trey Burke, acquired from Minnesota after the Timberwolves selected him ninth overall in the NBA draft, broke his right index finger in the first quarter. He returned to play nearly eight minutes in the second quarter before X-rays at halftime revealed the fracture. Team doctors will further evaluate Burke's condition on Monday.

"We'll see what the specialists say but it's definitely a downer for us," Utah coach Tyrone Corbin said. "This is another obstacle we'll have to overcome, but we'll put our heads together, see what we have and go from there."

Los Angeles, which led 50-31 at the half and 78-53 after three quarters, finished at 55 per cent shooting from the field.

The Jazz, who opened the preseason with a rout of Golden State but have been blow out two straight since, made only 36 per cent of their shots.

The Clippers (2-0) repeatedly broke down Utah's defence, with Chris Paul getting 10 assists in 23 minutes and Darren Collison adding 10 off the bench. Los Angeles dominated the paint as well, outscoring Utah 42-26 in close.

Los Angeles also had 18 fast-break points to only two for Utah.
