(Newser) – The Los Angeles Clippers shot their way into the record books last night with a 107-96 victory over the Utah Jazz, giving them 17 wins in a row and an undefeated December, making them only the third NBA team to record a perfect calendar month, the AP reports. Only the 1995-'96 San Antonio Spurs and the 1971-'72 Los Angeles Lakers have achieved the same feat. The Clippers' winning streak is now the NBA's longest since the Boston Celtics won 19 in a row four years ago.
