    Westbrook just picked up his fifth foul...
  • 5/11/2014 10:04:45 PM Mike.James
    Westbrook gets his fifth foul with 4:29 left on Collison, who makes two free throws to cut the lead to 88-83. Free throws become critical now.
  • 5/11/2014 10:04:48 PM Eric Pincus
    Westbrook elevates on his jumper so high - not a lot Collison can do there - Crawford gets it back on the other end
  • Incredible layup by Blake, following own miss. LAC within 3
  • 5/11/2014 10:05:28 PM Eric Pincus
    Westbrook takes another over Collison but misses - Griffin in transition catches his own miss and scores 90-87
  • 5/11/2014 10:05:52 PM melissa.rohlin
    Wow. Crawford and Blake Griffin socre on back-to-back possessions to make it a three point game, 90-87, with 3 minutes left.
  • 5/11/2014 10:05:58 PM Eric Pincus
    Collison dunk in transition - Clippers within a point with 2:57 90-89
  • Game 4's a battle. Clippers pull to within a point, 90-89. Just under 3 minutes left.
  • 5/11/2014 10:06:40 PM melissa.rohlin
    Collison scores. One-point game, 90-89, with just under three minutes left.
  • .@JCrossover with the steal, @Darren_Collison with the breakaway dunk. OKC 90, LAC 89. (2:57)

    The Clippers are on a fast break tear.
  • 5/11/2014 10:07:24 PM Mike.James
    Great move along the baseline from Crawford to offset a jumper by Westbrook. Clippers really need some stops, and they get one that leads to a determined inside basket by Griffin off his own miss for 90-87. Collison's steal and dunk cuts it it to one and for one of the few times today, the Staples Center crowd doesn't resemble cardboard figures in the seats. Timeout OKC with 2:57 to go.
  • 5/11/2014 10:07:50 PM melissa.rohlin
    The Thunder's 16-point fourth quarter lead is now 1. Playoff basketball, folks.
  • 5/11/2014 10:09:09 PM Eric Pincus
    D Collison was extremely important for Clippers vs. Warriors - making an impact here vs. Thunder
  • 5/11/2014 10:09:28 PM Eric Pincus
    Collison to the line after a Durant basket 2:12 left - 3-point game before the FT
  • 5/11/2014 10:09:47 PM Mike.James
    OKC needs a basket badly. Not surprisingly, Durant makes a short banker off an inbounds play to make it 92-89.

  • 5/11/2014 10:10:27 PM Eric Pincus
    Collison up to 14 points and 7 assists - 1-point game again
  • 5/11/2014 10:11:10 PM Eric Pincus
    After a Durant basket - easy over CP3 - Griffin scores in post + foul - 5th on Ibaka
  • 5/11/2014 10:11:33 PM Eric Pincus
    Tied up at 94 - 1:50 left
  • Blake AND-1. We're tied at 94
  • 5/11/2014 10:11:43 PM melissa.rohlin
    Griffin has a chance to tie it at the free throw line now
  • 5/11/2014 10:11:58 PM Mike.James
    Collison with a couple of free throws to keep it at one. Very cool at the line, 4 for 4. So what does OKC do? Durant responds to push it to three. Then Griffin makes a power drive and goes with his left, and he's fouled. He ties the score at 94. this is wild.
  • 5/11/2014 10:12:07 PM melissa.rohlin
    Tie game. 94-94. 1:40 left.
  • 5/11/2014 10:12:43 PM Eric Pincus
    Durant with a rather big miss at the line
  • 5/11/2014 10:12:57 PM Eric Pincus
    95-94 1:35 after he hits the second OKC back up
  • 5/11/2014 10:13:19 PM Eric Pincus
    Jamal Crawford gives the Clippers a lead - 97-95 - three-pointer up top
  • 5/11/2014 10:13:43 PM Stacey.Leasca



  • 5/11/2014 10:13:45 PM melissa.rohlin
    Wow. Jamal Crawford makes a three-pointer to give the Clippers their first lead of the game with just over a minute left.
  • 5/11/2014 10:13:55 PM Eric Pincus
    Collison to the basket - 99-97 - final minute - Clippers up
  • 5/11/2014 10:14:18 PM melissa.rohlin
    Collison is putting himself on the map.
  • 5/11/2014 10:14:39 PM Eric Pincus
    Clippers get a stop - Collison again in transition - he's been the difference - Clippers up 101-97 with 32.8 left
  • 5/11/2014 10:14:45 PM Mike.James
    Durant misses the first of two free throws, makes the second for a 95-94 lead. Crawford drains a 25-footer with 1:25 left and the Clippers have their first lead. Westbrook makes sure it's short lived, before Collison, having the game of his life, puts the Clippers up two.
  • What a rebound by Blake. DC with back-to-back layups. LAC 101, Thunder 97 (32.8) OKC ball
  • 5/11/2014 10:15:06 PM melissa.rohlin
    Collison just scored two baskets in a row to put the Clippers up by four with 32 seconds left.
  • 5/11/2014 10:16:01 PM Mike.James
    Incredible series of plays, a steal and Collison scores on the break for a four-point Clipper lead with 32.8 seconds left. "This is one of the great playoff comebacks you're ever going to see" says Jeff Van Gundy. No argument here.
  • 5/11/2014 10:16:06 PM Eric Pincus
    Westbrook takes it quickly and easily to the basket to score 101-99 Clippers final 30 seconds
  • Clippers rally, take Game 4 at home 101-99. Series tied 2-2 as Thunder heads home for Tuesday night's Game 5. thunder.nba.com
  • 5/11/2014 10:17:56 PM melissa.rohlin
    I cannot believe it. The Clippers just came back from a 22-point deficit to win Game 4. Collison was incredible down the stretch.
  • 5/11/2014 10:17:59 PM Mike.James
    OKC out of timeouts, but Westbrook cuts it to two. Clippers will work for one shot with only a few seconds  left. A miss. Westbrook puts up a  three, Ibaka misses the tip, and one of the most improbable wins in recent memory for the Clippers. They hold on to win, 101-99. Ibaka was left wide open on that tip, and the Clippers really escaped with this one.
  • 5/11/2014 10:18:58 PM melissa.rohlin
    Off to the Clippers' locker room. Looking forward to seeing Collison on the podium tonight. Boy does he deserve it.

  • 5/11/2014 10:19:44 PM Eric Pincus
    Clippers win 101-99 - Westbrook had an open three to tie - Ibaka's tip in almost fell (though not sure if it would have counted)

    That was a tremendous game four - one of the worst starts I've seen in a playoff game - LAC still overcame it
  • 5/11/2014 10:20:29 PM Mike.James
    Darren Collison finishes with 18 points and seven rebounds. Incredible performance....  The Clippers needed someone to step up aside from Griffin or Paul, and they got that in a huge way. He had 12 points in the fourth, leading this wild comeback. OKC was up 16 with 9 minutes left.
