    Blake is like a bear charging to the basket for some honey tonight. He has 30 points and eight rebounds. Quite a contrast from the quiet 15 points and 6 rebounds he had in Game 2.
  • 5/10/2014 5:02:48 AM Mike.James
    That Griffin move was one of those I-don't-care-who's-in-my-way drives.... then Butler hits another one from outside. It seems every big play is being answered by another one. OKC leading 102-100 with 5:11 to play.
  • 5/10/2014 5:03:05 AM Eric Pincus
    Chris Paul has the highest +/- tonight at +8 -- Reggie Jackson is at +6

    Durant -2, Griffin -1
  • 5/10/2014 5:03:52 AM melissa.rohlin
    It's 102-100 with 5:11 left. Warning: Do not watch if you have heart problems.
  • 5/10/2014 5:04:15 AM Mike.James
    OKC leading the rebound battle, 38-30, but also has more turnovers, 13-6.
  • 5/10/2014 5:04:59 AM Eric Pincus
    Fifth on Ibaka with 5:08 left - could be significant
  • 5/10/2014 5:05:32 AM melissa.rohlin
    Westbrook is complaining about that call. Couldn't quite hear him, but saw a lot of head bouncing and gesticulations.
  • 5/10/2014 5:06:17 AM Mike.James
    Ibaka runs over Chris Paul for his fifth foul. That could be a major factor in the closing minutes.
  • 5/10/2014 5:06:25 AM Eric Pincus
    Clippers announce their 139th straight sellout
  • 5/10/2014 5:06:42 AM melissa.rohlin
    Ibaka and Griffin meeting midair is like two freight trains colliding on a track. (Looks like that must hurt.)
  • 5/10/2014 5:06:43 AM Eric Pincus
    Key moment here - Clippers down 3 - OKC ball - 4 minutes left
  • 5/10/2014 5:07:07 AM Eric Pincus
    Clippers get initial stop but Ibaka flushes off an offensive rebound - 106-101
  • 5/10/2014 5:07:52 AM melissa.rohlin
    The Thunder is up by 5, 106-101, with 4 minutes left. They just matched their biggest lead of the game.
  • 5/10/2014 5:09:07 AM Mike.James
    Great move by Ibaka on Griffin to put OKC up by three. Jamal Crawford is still struggling, 5 for 17 from the field. When Ibaka scores off an offensive rebound, Doc has had enough and calls a timeout. Ibaka is 9 for 10 from the field. Huge contributor. OKC up 5 with four minutes left.

    Won't matter if Clippers don't get stops - Westbrook
  • 5/10/2014 5:11:31 AM Eric Pincus
    DJ with the putback - offensive foul on Durant - Clippers get their stop 108-105 2:42 left with the ball
  • 5/10/2014 5:11:59 AM Eric Pincus
    Ibaka having trouble guarding Griffin in the post with his 5 fouls - 108-107
  • 5/10/2014 5:12:18 AM melissa.rohlin
    Sorry, Thunder. Blake Griffin is getting to the basket every time he touches the ball from hereonforth. If you stand in his way, he will move you.
  • 5/10/2014 5:12:20 AM Eric Pincus
    Westbrook for 3

    Wow. Griffin with some good acting to draw a foul on Durant, then drives on foul-laden Ibaka for a score.... What happens? Westbrook drills a three to make it four again.

    Tough shot attempt from Paul - contested 3 at a difficult angle - Durant kills Clippers on other end 113-107 with 1:23 left

    OKC is up, 113-107, with 1:23 left. Don't see a single fan leaving Staples.
  • 5/10/2014 5:15:17 AM melissa.rohlin
    Whoah. Just glanced at my stats and saw this -- The Clippers are 6-for-23 from the three-point line. Anyway, back to the scheduled programming.
  • 5/10/2014 5:15:44 AM Mike.James
    Durant with a turnaround jumper on Paul that pushes it to six points with 1:23 to play. The Clippers are playing adequately on offense but not defense, the Thunder has scored on four of five possessions.
  • 5/10/2014 5:15:50 AM Eric Pincus
    CP3 misses again - Jordan called for push off- game slipping away from LAC
  • 5/10/2014 5:16:27 AM Eric Pincus
    Matt Barnes misses a 3 in transition - pretty much the Clippers' last hope barring something odd
  • 5/10/2014 5:16:40 AM Mike.James
    Why is DeAndre Jordan smiling? He commits a foul and the Clippers aren't far from being in a must-win situation in Game 4. 
  • 5/10/2014 5:17:45 AM melissa.rohlin
    Matt Barnes misses a three-point attempt. OKC is up, 113-107, with 27 seconds left. If Chick Heard were around, we'd be hearing a refrigerator reference right about now.

    Clippers fans have realized their team has fallen tonight - just starting to filter out

    Great seats for Clippers vs OKC with my boy @catpasey. Missing @bigjoefauria #clippers #durant #mvp #winningsteph

  • 5/10/2014 5:20:58 AM Mike.James
    Big difference in this game was on the boards tonight. DeAndre Jordan has been neutralized. He's got 10 rebounds and 10 points, but really hasn't been a factor.
