Chris Paul added 19 points and seven assists for Houston and Clint Capela had 13 points and 11 rebounds.

Davis, who left the game briefly in the first quarter because of a minor groin injury, led New Orleans to its third consecutive victory heading into the All-Star break. This season, Johnson appeared in 32 games and made three starts for the Jazz, averaging 7.3 points and 3.3 rebounds per game in 21.9 minutes of action per contest.

Los Angeles and Boston put on All Star-caliber performances in their final game before the break as the Clippers beat the Celtics behind DeAndre Jordan's career-high 30 points with 13 rebounds and four steals.
