    The Thunder have 5 first quarter turnovers with 3:17 remaining.
  • 5/14/2014 2:06:51 AM Mike.James
    Redick again. And the Clippers are playing exceptional defense, forcing mistakes by OKC. A couple of wild turnovers on passes on the last two possessions.
  • 5/14/2014 2:08:35 AM Mike.James
    Griffin's got 11 points and five rebounds in less than nine minutes.
  • 5/14/2014 2:09:47 AM melissa.rohlin
    Clippers are being patient and have a lot of ball movement. They're playing with so much confidence.
  • 5/14/2014 2:09:49 AM Eric Pincus
    30 points already for Clippers
  • 5/14/2014 2:10:09 AM Mike.James
    Redick with a floater, and he's got 10 points. Clippers are passing the ball as if they get penalized for holding on to it for more than half a second. Great movement.
  • 5/14/2014 2:10:20 AM melissa.rohlin
    Reddick has 10 points in just under 10 minutes.
  • 5/14/2014 2:11:44 AM Mike.James
    A Collison-Collison collision. Foul goes on Nick.

    Lots of 2nd fouls - DeAndre Jordan, Chris Paul and Serge Ibaka
  • 5/14/2014 2:13:38 AM Mike.James
    Jamal Crawford in for  Chris Paul, who has two fouls. Collison-Crawford in the backcourt
  • 5/14/2014 2:14:16 AM melissa.rohlin
    Just had a Brad Turner sighting. Very exciting.
  • 5/14/2014 2:14:52 AM Mike.James
    Reggie Jackson is one of those streak shooters who can cause some damage. He makes only one of two free throws to cut the lead to 10, 31-21.
  • 5/14/2014 2:15:27 AM Eric Pincus
    Barnes for 3 - big shot - 34-21 Clippers
  • 5/14/2014 2:15:51 AM melissa.rohlin
    Durant was so tight-lipped after Game 4. He was mad. It'll be interesting to see what he does tonight. So far he has 4 points on 1-for-4 shooting.
  • 5/14/2014 2:16:19 AM Eric Pincus
    Other than foul trouble (DJ/CP3) - Clippers have to be very happy with this first quarter
  • 5/14/2014 2:16:54 AM melissa.rohlin
    Big baby commits a less-than-intelligent foul on Durant with 6 seconds left in the first quarter. Doc punishes the babe by taking him out.
  • 5/14/2014 2:17:51 AM melissa.rohlin
    Oh a Bill Plaschke sighting too....
  • 5/14/2014 2:20:01 AM Mike.James
    I don't remember seeing the Clippers move the ball as furiously as they are tonight, though the finish to the quarter is all OKC. Ill-advised foul by Big Baby -- his third -- on Durant leads to two points, and a lazy pass on the Clippers' last possession leads to a turnover, and a clear-path foul. Doc Rivers has to be apoplectic. Two more free throws for OKC, and the ball with 2.3 seconds left.

    Breakdowns for Clippers late - bad foul from Glen Davis - turnover and clear path foul
  • 5/14/2014 2:20:27 AM melissa.rohlin
    Great start for the Clippers. After 1 quarter, they lead 34-25. Griffin is leading the Clippers with 11 points and 4 rebounds. No one on the Thunder has scored in double-digits.
  • 5/14/2014 2:20:28 AM Eric Pincus
    Westbrook's 3 doesn't drop - Clippers up 34-25 after a quarter
  • Thunder trying to work its way back from 15 points down, Clippers' lead is now nine, 34-25 headed to Q2. Durant 6p-5r, Westbrook 8p.
  • 5/14/2014 2:21:11 AM Eric Pincus
    Clippers shoot 50% from the field - hold Thunder to 29.4%
  • 5/14/2014 2:21:19 AM Mike.James
    Fortunately for the Clippers, Westbrook can't convert a three at the buzzer, but the Clippers' 34-25 lead doesn't have nearly the feeling it could. they were up by 13 only seconds before.
  • Second quarter lineup: Collison, Crawford, Barnes, Granger, Jordan.
  • 5/14/2014 2:23:39 AM Stacey.Leasca


  • 5/14/2014 2:25:26 AM melissa.rohlin
    Former Clippers Caron Butler makes a three-pointer. Clippers lead has been cut to 6, 34-28.
  • 5/14/2014 2:26:16 AM Mike.James
    And the second units are on the court, with Durant still in for OKC. Caron Butler from the corner cuts it to six points. Crawford has missed a couple of points, and now things are getting closer.
  • 5/14/2014 2:26:43 AM Eric Pincus
    DeAndre Jordan with 3 fouls
  • 5/14/2014 2:26:50 AM melissa.rohlin
    DJ just picked up his third foul.
  • 5/14/2014 2:27:19 AM Mike.James
    Not a good play for Jordan, who picks up his third foul. Davis also has three. That's not at all good for the Clippers.
  • Caron Butler sinks a 3, Adams and Durant 3 free throws. Thunder pulls to within three.10:14 till halftime. #ThunderVsClippers
  • 5/14/2014 2:28:28 AM melissa.rohlin
    Kevin Durant makes two free throws and suddenly the Clippers only lead by three points, 34-31, with just under 10 minutes remaining in the first half.
  • 5/14/2014 2:28:53 AM Mike.James
    Granger trying to make something happen offensively for the Clippers and gets to the line. He makes two to increase the lead to 36-31 and stall OKC a bit.
  • 5/14/2014 2:29:11 AM Amy.Hubbard
    Clippers forward Glen Davis and Thunder center Kendrick Perkins reach for the ball in the first quarter of Game 5.

    OKC is on a 16-5 run. They're 18-for-21 from the free throw line. The Clippers have only shot 10 free throws.
  • 5/14/2014 2:29:46 AM Eric Pincus
    Unsurprisingly - Thunder on a serious run
  • 5/14/2014 2:30:13 AM melissa.rohlin
    Breaking news: First quarter leads don't mean much in this series.
  • 5/14/2014 2:30:15 AM Eric Pincus
    Granger with a helpful basket
  • 5/14/2014 2:30:29 AM Mike.James
    The MVP. it's two points, and yet another Clippers miss. Then the D picks up and Granger hits a banker. He's beginning to play like the guy they hoped they had signed.
  • 8:13 2Q: #Clippers 38, Thunder 37. OKC on 16-4 run
