    Not sure how Adams only has 2 offensive rebounds - feels more like 6
  • 5/10/2014 3:33:44 AM Mike.James
    Matt Barnes has been virtually invisible so far and misses an 8-incher off a feed from Griffin. Barnes is scoreless with one rebound.

    OKC has taken its biggest lead of the game, 46-41, with 5:46 left in the first half.

    Thunder push ahead by 5 - Clippers a bit out of sorts
  • 5/10/2014 3:36:34 AM melissa.rohlin
    OKC has stopped sending the Clippers to the free throw line, where they scored most of their first quarter points. It's bad news for LA, which is shooting a woeful 35% from the field.
  • 5/10/2014 3:37:21 AM Mike.James
    Ibaka's wide-open 12-footer pushes OKCs lead to 46-41. The Clippers' offense has stalled. Still, the amazing thing is that the Thunder is shooting 58%, the Clippers 35%. And the Clippers are getting throttled on the boards, 21-11. How is this a five-point game?
  • 5/10/2014 3:38:26 AM melissa.rohlin
    Mike: Exactly! The only reason they're in the game is because they're shooting 13 for 14 from the free throw line and have only one turnover, while OKC has 6.
  • 5/10/2014 3:40:20 AM Mike.James
    Griffin to Jordan on a dunk and Jordan has a defender getting a piggy-back ride. No call though, and Jordan and Griffin are both cranky ... that's not unusual, of course.
  • 5/10/2014 3:40:57 AM melissa.rohlin
    Matt Barnes finally gets onto the scoreboard with a dunk. He's shot 1 for 5 from the field so far this game.
  • 5/10/2014 3:41:07 AM Eric Pincus
    Clippers a sharper out of the time out - back within a point
  • 5/10/2014 3:41:29 AM Mike.James
    Barnes finally scores on a fine putback, and OKC leads by three. Then Barnes hits from the corner to cut it to one.
  • 5/10/2014 3:42:20 AM Eric Pincus
    Clippers back up on top 49-48, forcing an OKC timeout - nice game tonight
  • 5/10/2014 3:42:35 AM melissa.rohlin
    After trailing by 5 points, the Clippers have taken back the lead. It's 49-48 with 3:34 left in the first half.
  • 5/10/2014 3:42:44 AM Mike.James
    Chris Paul elbow jumper and the Clippers are back on top, 49-48. There aren't a lot more automatic baskets in the league than that one.
  • 5/10/2014 3:45:23 AM Eric Pincus
    Matt Barnes steal and dunk has Staples fans on their feet - Perkins answers and they sit down
  • 5/10/2014 3:45:48 AM Mike.James
    A good tweet from @patrickmjames: If the Clippers put as much energy into rebounding as complaining they'd by up 12.
  • 5/10/2014 3:47:00 AM Eric Pincus
    Blake Griffin just blocked Durant - Ibaka called for his third on the other end - Clippers playing with the best energy they've had since this game started
  • 5/10/2014 3:47:41 AM melissa.rohlin
    Not sure how Kevin Durant just got around every Clipper player for a layup. #MVP
  • 5/10/2014 3:47:42 AM Eric Pincus
    Kevin Durant up to 21 - Griffin's dunk gets him to 16
  • 5/10/2014 3:48:17 AM Eric Pincus
    Westbrook is in considerable pain on the floor after a hard fall
  • 5/10/2014 3:48:19 AM Mike.James
    Ibaka picks up his third foul, on Griffin. Ibaka has played only nine minutes. Then Durant and Griffin trade down-the-lane drives for buckets.
  • 5/10/2014 3:49:30 AM Mike.James
    Westbrook goes down hard on his left hip on a drive. That's going to be very sore Sunday morning.
  • 5/10/2014 3:49:54 AM Eric Pincus
    Double techs there - Durant and CP3
  • 5/10/2014 3:50:25 AM Eric Pincus
    Westbrook seems to be OK - just hit a three to tie it up at 55
  • 5/10/2014 3:51:54 AM Mike.James
    Durant and Paul go at each other and get double Ts. Westbrook seems to be unfazed by the hip; he knocks down a three from the top of the key. Tie game with about a minute left in the half.
  • 5/10/2014 3:51:55 AM Eric Pincus
    Fouls update with a 1:06 left in half - Griffin/Davis have 3 for Clippers - Ibaka/Jackson 3 for Thunder
  • 5/10/2014 3:52:57 AM Mike.James
    Good segment with Durant during a break. He says he doesn't like Chris Paul at all on the court, and Paul doesn't like him. But he says he and Paul are great friends off the court.
  • 5/10/2014 3:53:46 AM melissa.rohlin
    Love watching CP3 and Westbrook go against each other. It's like a dream clinic for young point guards.
  • 5/10/2014 3:53:50 AM Eric Pincus
    Yeah, Westbrook is fine

  • 5/10/2014 3:54:45 AM Mike.James
    An effortless drive by Chris Paul, followed by an anything-but-effortless did-I-just-see-that? drive by Westbrook.
  • 5/10/2014 3:54:53 AM melissa.rohlin
    Oh hi, Matt Barnes. Until the second quarter, forgot you were playing. After going scoreless in the first, he has scored 9 pts.
  • 5/10/2014 3:55:00 AM Eric Pincus
    Long 3-pointer from Chris Paul - Durant's misses on the other end - that's the half - LAC up 63 - OKC 61
  • 5/10/2014 3:56:01 AM melissa.rohlin
    Halftime: Clippers 63, Thunder 61. Griffin has 16 points and CP3 has 14 points and eight assists. Durant leads OKC with 21 points on 7 for 13 shooting.
  • After 14 lead changes and 7 ties, the Clippers take a 63-61 lead over the Thunder into halftime of Game 3. #OKCvsLAC http://pbs.twimg.com/media/BnPuRQLCcAAZFaB.jpg

  • 5/10/2014 3:56:43 AM Mike.James
    Final possession, Paul shoots from about 500 feet ... and it goes in. Clippers lead, 63-61, at the half. Fourteen lead changes in two quarters in which neither team allowed the other to get away.

    What's the difference between the Eastern Conference and the Western Conference? The Clippers have 63 points in the first half; the Wizards scored 63 in the earlier game tonight. (Thanks to the telecast crew for that stat.)
