Kawhi Leonard scored 25 points and the Los Angeles Clippers rolled over the Houston Rockets 120-105 on Thursday night for their sixth straight victory.

Ivica Zubac had his best performance of the season, routinely rolling to the basket for uncontested dunks. Zubac had a season-high with 14 points in the first half, and his total of 17 points for the game was also a season-high. He was perfect from the field (6-of-6) and added 12 rebounds.

Houston made just 7 of 42 3-pointers to drop its second straight game in embarrassing fashion after losing to the lowly New York Knicks on Monday night. The Rockets ended their streak of 18 straight games with 10 or more 3-pointers dating to Jan. 20.
