MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – Hassan Whiteside had a career game against the Clippers on Sunday.

Chris Bosh scored 34 points and Dwyane Wade added 17 points on 5-of-15 shooting and had 10 assists.
The Clippers had no answer for the 7-foot Whiteside in his third year out of Marshall. His offensive display ran the gamut from tip-ins to dunks to jumpers. About the only thing Whiteside didn’t do was try a 3-pointer. He was 10 of 13 from the field and 3 of 4 from the line in 28 minutes.
Blake Griffin scored 26 points and Chris Paul had 23 points and nine assists for the Clippers. They had won two straight and six of their previous eight.READ MORE: Davie Man Accused Of Setting Girlfriend's Mobile Home On Fire While She Was In It
