    Another Paul turnover and Westbrook drive for a basket, and OKC has cut the lead to 70-68.
  • 5/14/2014 3:36:32 AM Eric Pincus
    Westbrook + 1 - fourth on Glen Davis
  • 5/14/2014 3:36:57 AM melissa.rohlin
    Wow. Westbrook is on fire. He just was fouled on a jumper and now has a chance to make the three-point play to cut the Clippers' lead to 1.
  • 5/14/2014 3:37:21 AM melissa.rohlin
    Westbrook is leading all scorers with 23 points.
  • Russell Westbrook changes gear in transition, for an acrobatic finish on TNT #NBARapidReplay on.nba.com/1mWAANM
  • 5/14/2014 3:37:58 AM melissa.rohlin
    Cilppers 74, Thunder 72 with 3:04 left in the third.
  • 5/14/2014 3:38:13 AM Mike.James
    Crawford still struggling. Misses on a fairly open three and who responds? Right, Westbrook, plus he's going to the line with OKC trailing by 2. Davis gets his fourth foul. The Clippers could end up with no big men by the end of the game... Of course, they haven't had any big men show up yet other than Griffin, who's been stellar.
  • 5/14/2014 3:40:45 AM Eric Pincus
    Westbrook and Durant are 20-22 from the line - Clippers 13-15
  • 5/14/2014 3:41:01 AM melissa.rohlin
    Westbrook, of course, completed the three-point play. He's 10-for-12 from the free throw line.
  • 5/14/2014 3:41:19 AM Mike.James
    It's a one-point game. And Paul finds Crawford for a three at the top of the key. Certainly shows faith in the shooter. Plus Crawford luckily gets a foul call and makes the four-point play to bump the lead to 78-73.
  • Second 4pt play of the Playoffs for @JCrossover . He still owns the @NBA record
  • 5/14/2014 3:41:34 AM Eric Pincus
    Crawford 4-point plays are something else
  • 5/14/2014 3:41:45 AM melissa.rohlin
    Interesting stat on TNT: Crawford has an NBA record 42 four-point plays.
  • 5/14/2014 3:42:55 AM Mike.James
    Acrobatic save by Big Baby. That is not a typo. And Barnes follows with a three.
  • 5/14/2014 3:42:55 AM Eric Pincus
    Game 4 star Darren Collison has played just 6 minutes tonight
  • 5/14/2014 3:43:21 AM Eric Pincus
    5th on Glen Davis
  • 5/14/2014 3:43:26 AM melissa.rohlin
    Barnes is having a huge game. He's scored 14 points, including 4-for-5 from the three-point line.
  • 5/14/2014 3:44:23 AM Mike.James
    Wow. Westbrook is relentless. He drives on Davis (that's the definition of mismatch), Davis picks up his fifth foul and it's 81-78 LA. Griffin then responds to push it back to five. Let's guess what happened next? Oh, yeah, Westrbook on drive.
  • 5/14/2014 3:44:26 AM melissa.rohlin
    Westbrook has 29 points, 14 in the third.
  • 5/14/2014 3:45:05 AM Eric Pincus
    Durant is struggling from the field - Thunder still within 3
  • 5/14/2014 3:45:19 AM Eric Pincus
    Crawford has a gift
  • 5/14/2014 3:45:52 AM Mike.James
    Crawford somehow makes a jumper sit on the rim for a second, then drop through as he gets the basket and a foul with 10 seconds left in the quarter. He makes it to give LA a six-point lead.
  • 5/14/2014 3:45:54 AM melissa.rohlin
    @mike: Looks like Doc's halftime advice to Crawford has paid off...
  • 5/14/2014 3:46:01 AM Eric Pincus
    Ryan Hollins with a cameo
  • Russell Westbrook keeps penetrating, attacking the rim. He's got 29 points. LAC leads OKC 86-80 headed to Q4. #ThunderVsClippers
  • 5/14/2014 3:46:35 AM Eric Pincus
    Difficult 3rd - Clippers up 86-80 vs. OKC
  • 5/14/2014 3:47:21 AM melissa.rohlin
    After three quarters: Clippers 86, Thunder 80.
  • 5/14/2014 3:48:10 AM Mike.James
    Westbrook heaved up a 30-foot shot as the quarter ended. Shockingly, the way he's been playing, the ball didn't go through, and the Clippers lead 86-80. Westbrook is singlehandedly keeping the Thunder in this game. He's got 29 points to help make up for Durant's subpar evening. Durant is three for 17 from the field (though he's made all 10 of his free throws).
  • Jamal layup to start the fourth. He's one of five #Clippers in double-figures.
  • 5/14/2014 3:50:37 AM Eric Pincus
    Clippers up 8 after a Crawford basket with 11:45 left
  • 5/14/2014 3:50:50 AM Mike.James
    Russell Westbrook looks really at home around the rim.

    Dangerous moment for Clippers - the Thunder run is inevitable - very tight game
  • 5/14/2014 3:51:51 AM Eric Pincus
    The jumpers Griffin made early - not falling
  • 5/14/2014 3:52:29 AM melissa.rohlin
    These last two games are making me think these really are two evenly matched teams
  • 5/14/2014 3:53:04 AM Mike.James
    Clippers opening the forth ice cold from the field. OKC cuts it to four points. Paul warms things up a bit with a jumper from the line.
  • 5/14/2014 3:53:55 AM Eric Pincus
    Westbrook has been a tremendous force tonight
  • 5/14/2014 3:54:16 AM melissa.rohlin
    WOW. Westbrook seemingly just flung himself to the basket through the defense. He's unstoppable right now. 33 points.
  • 8:36 4Q: #Clippers 90, Thunder 88. OKC ball out of timeout.
  • 5/14/2014 3:54:43 AM Mike.James
    Westbrook with as athletic and forceful a move as you'll see. It's a two point game; they're standing and screaming in OKC. He's unstoppable.
  • .@ChesapeakeArena erupts after Adams' block. Matt Pinto on radio: "Loud City is as loud as we've heard it!" LAC up 90-88. 8:36 left.
  • 5/14/2014 3:57:26 AM Eric Pincus
    BTW - Matt Pinto - OKC radio - used to do Clippers radio - well too
  • 5/14/2014 3:58:12 AM Eric Pincus
    Great defense on Westbrook by Paul in that sequence
  • 5/14/2014 3:58:33 AM Mike.James
    Paul trying to stop Westbrook, and hassles him enough to get a shot-clock violation.
