    Clippers playing small with Collison/Paul/Crawford - with Davis/Griffin

    In this lineup - Blake Griffin is guarding Kevin Durant
  • 5/11/2014 8:14:43 PM melissa.rohlin
    Blake Griffin is fouled on a layup and makes the free throw, helping the Clippers cut the deficit from 22 to 12.
  • 5/11/2014 8:14:44 PM Mike.James
    Strong move by Griffin on Adams, using his body to shield Adams and going with the left. Picks up a foul too and makes the free throw to cut the lead to 12, 38-26.
  • 5/11/2014 8:16:56 PM Eric Pincus
    Clippers not giving up baskets but fouling - within 12 points now - but still struggling to get stops

    Clippers back-to-back stops - within 11

    Clippers within 9 after a Crawford basket
  • 5/11/2014 8:19:42 PM Eric Pincus
    Chris Paul putting the team on his back
  • 5/11/2014 8:19:43 PM Mike.James
    Great job staying with it after a steal by Paul, who grabs a rebound and scores. Then Adams called for a foul on Griffin and the Clippers have a chance to cut the lead to single digits for the first time in what seems like forever.... And Crawford comes through with a floater. It's nine.
  • CP3 finishes off And-1 layup with FT, OKC 39, LAC 33
  • 5/11/2014 8:20:42 PM Eric Pincus
    Clippers in 2nd 18-7 
  • 5/11/2014 8:20:43 PM Mike.James
    Paul with an exceptional fullcourt drive, plus one. His free throw makes it 39-33. A near-complete team personality transplant from the first quarter.
  • 5/11/2014 8:21:07 PM melissa.rohlin
    The Clippers are on a 14-3 run, OKC's 22 point lead has been cut to 6.
  • 5/11/2014 8:22:14 PM Mike.James
    As OKC goes cold, Crawford drives and goes to the line. He makes both and the lead is down to four.
  • Clippers cut into Thunder lead. OKC up 41-35 halfway through Q2. Westbrook: 13 points.
  • 5/11/2014 8:22:52 PM Eric Pincus
    The good news is the Clippers have shown up - whoever wins - gotta see a competitive game
  • Westbrook starts Game 4 off with a BANG on ABC. #NBARapidReplay
  • 5/11/2014 8:24:28 PM Stacey.Leasca

  • 5/11/2014 8:24:54 PM Mike.James
    Griffin continues to try to force it inside, without success. He's 2 for 8.  Redick is back in and still looking for any opening, but he's not getting any.
  • 5/11/2014 8:26:26 PM melissa.rohlin
    One stat the Clippers definitely need to change if they're going to successfully grind through this game: They're 0-for-8 from the free throw line.
  • 5/11/2014 8:27:55 PM Eric Pincus
    Ibaka blocking everything
  • 5/11/2014 8:30:06 PM Eric Pincus
    Two really really bad misses from DeAndre Jordan at the free throw line (1 air ball)
  • 5/11/2014 8:30:21 PM Mike.James
    OKC pulls back into a nine-point lead. The Clippers have a chance to cut it to 7 with Jordan going to the line. Not a big chance, but a chance... OK, no chance. He misses badly on the first, and puts an airball up on the second. 0-4 from the line.
  • 5/11/2014 8:31:31 PM Mike.James
    Great drive by Westbrook pushes the lead back to 11. before Crawford cuts it to 8 with a three from the corner. The Clippers are now 1 for 9 from beyond the arc, a nifty 11 percent.
  • 5/11/2014 8:32:30 PM Eric Pincus
    Clippers aren't guarding Perkins and barely guarding Caron Butler - Butler getting open looks - so far 6 points on 2-4 shooting
  • 5/11/2014 8:32:34 PM melissa.rohlin
    Crawford, the sixth man of the year, has 11 points off of the bench. The Clippers' bench is outscoring the Thunder's, 19-11.
  • 5/11/2014 8:33:02 PM Eric Pincus
    Strange call - Clippers kicked ball - on replay - no idea what they was called
  • 5/11/2014 8:33:55 PM Mike.James
    Crawford drives to cut it to 6. He's playing now like the sixth man of the year. He's four for eight for 11 points. The Clippers are also finally making themselves felt on the boards; they lead 21-6 in rebounds, and 7-2 in offensive rebounds.
  • 5/11/2014 8:34:38 PM Stacey.Leasca

  • 5/11/2014 8:36:18 PM Eric Pincus
    Clippers' defense has really improved in the 2nd - as far as activity - though still fouling
  • 5/11/2014 8:37:00 PM Eric Pincus
    Thunder miss back-to-back gimmes at the basket - Durant and Westbrook
  • 5/11/2014 8:38:12 PM Eric Pincus
    Nice feed in transition from Matt Barnes to Blake Griffin - who had great position on Ibaka - basket and foul
  • 5/11/2014 8:38:22 PM Mike.James
    Kevin Durant finds a way to be effective even when part of his game isn't working. He's 4 for 12 from the field, but is 7 for 7 from the line for a game-high 16 points so far.
  • 5/11/2014 8:39:41 PM Eric Pincus
    Double tech - Perkins/Jordan
  • 5/11/2014 8:40:10 PM Mike.James
    Griffin gets a second chance on a three-point play from the line on a lane violation, but he misses both free throws. Sefolosha's jumper pushes the OKC lead back to 52-44.
  • 5/11/2014 8:40:47 PM Eric Pincus
    Matt Barnes missed wide open three -- Durant+1 on the other end - big swing
  • 5/11/2014 8:42:15 PM Eric Pincus
    DeAndre Jordan flagrant foul downgraded - wisely - by refs to regular personal
  • 5/11/2014 8:42:49 PM Mike.James
    Durant driving hard to the basket, hit hard by Jordan (his second) and Durant still makes the shot. He goes to the line and makes it 55-44. Incredibly strong move by Durant.
  • 5/11/2014 8:43:43 PM Stacey.Leasca

  • At the half: Thunder UP on Clippers 57-46. OKC lead the entire half. Durant 19p, Westbrook 15. Bench: Butler/Jackson combine for 11.
