UNDATED (AP) — The Los Angeles Clippers have control of the fourth seed in the NBA’s Western Conference.

Caron Butler scored 18 of his 22 points in the third quarter as the Clippers rolled to their sixth straight win, beating Portland 93-77. Blake Griffin finished with 16 points for the Clippers, who need only to beat Sacramento tomorrow to ensure home-court advantage to start the playoffs.

Also in the NBA, DeMar DeRozan scored 19 of his 30 points while Toronto was shooting 67 percent in the first half of a 113-96 rout of Atlanta. Rudy Gay provided 17 of his 22 points by halftime as the Raptors dropped the Hawks into a tie for fifth place with Chicago. Both teams complete their regular-season schedules on Wednesday, and the Bulls hold the tiebreaker.

Boston’s game against Indiana was canceled due to the Boston Marathon bombings.
