    Crawford steals the ball from Westbrook, but that stop started with CP3's excellent defense on him. Looks like CP3 has now made it his personal project to stop with Westbrook freight train.

    Jamal Crawford a little too eager offensively - next possession takes his time and gets a basket and foul
  • 5/14/2014 4:00:01 AM melissa.rohlin
    Crawford was 1-for-7 from the first half. At halftime, Doc told him that he needed him to get into the game. He now has 14 points. #thedoceffect
  • 5/14/2014 4:00:10 AM Mike.James
    Crawford with a very Crawford-like throw-it-up-over-the-shoulder drive, basket and the foul. Misses the free throw though. Clippers by four with 7:15 to go. Then Paul's drive down the middle makes it six.
  • 5/14/2014 4:00:22 AM Eric Pincus
    Chris Paul up to 15 points 94-88 Clippers with 7 min left

    Crawford with an open three. It clanged off the rim. Would have been a huge basket for the Clippers. Crawford is five for 17.
  • 5/14/2014 4:01:57 AM Eric Pincus
    Outside of turnovers (4) very strong game for Matt Barnes - scoring, defense, rebounding
  • 5/14/2014 4:05:20 AM Eric Pincus
    6 minutes left 94-88 LAC - Clippers' ball
  • 5/14/2014 4:05:35 AM Amy.Hubbard

  • 5/14/2014 4:06:58 AM melissa.rohlin
    Crawford has 16 points off the bench. He just made another shot to put the Clippers up by 8 points with 5 minutes left.
  • 5/14/2014 4:06:59 AM Eric Pincus
    In huge playoff games - it's not the shooting percentage that usually matter - Jamal Crawford is just 6-18 - but his 16 points have been hard earned and desperately needed
  • 5/14/2014 4:07:34 AM Mike.James
    Clippers with an opportunity to push the lead to eight, and Crawford does it with a baseline jumper with 5:20 minutes left. Westbrook has cooled off, and the Clippers get the ball back with a chance to get it to double digits. Paul calls time in a scrambled for a bobbled ball.
  • 5/14/2014 4:10:25 AM Eric Pincus
    Matt Barnes makes it 10 - big game for the UCLA product
  • 5/14/2014 4:10:51 AM melissa.rohlin
    The Clippers are on an 8-0 run, now lead by 10 points with 4:30 left.
  • 5/14/2014 4:11:14 AM Eric Pincus
    Griffin blocks Perkins - a LONG 3-pointer from Crawford and suddenly it's a 13-point Clippers' lead
  • 5/14/2014 4:11:28 AM Mike.James
    Crawford is 5 for 11 in the second half, and Barnes goes down the line for a 10 point lead. Huge block inside by Griffin on Perkins and Crawford drains one of his rainbow threes for a 13-point lead.
  • 5/14/2014 4:12:12 AM Eric Pincus
    Big 3 from Durant - OKC needed that - but still down 8 with 3:19
  • 5/14/2014 4:12:35 AM melissa.rohlin
    Kevin Durant hits a much-need shot for the Thunder. They trail by 8 points with 3:19 left.
  • 5/14/2014 4:13:35 AM Mike.James
    They're getting the ball to Crawford, who launches another bomb, but it misses. Durant --  remember him? -- then comes down and finally makes a three. Clippers lead by 8 with 3:19 to play, and Doc calls time to regroup. Let's see what they come out of the timeout with. That's been a signature of this team this year.
  • 5/14/2014 4:16:02 AM Mike.James
    Not a good possession for the Clippers, but they get it right back. Paul misses an open straightaway 15-footer. Durant to the line. He makes it a six-point game with 2:31 to play. Durant is 12-12 from the line.
  • DJ fouled out at 2:22... OKC ball. Clippers by 6.
  • 5/14/2014 4:16:38 AM melissa.rohlin
    Durant makes two free throws, he's 13-for-13 from the line, and it's a 6-point game with 2:22 left. DJ just fouled out. Thunder possession.
  • 5/14/2014 4:16:50 AM Eric Pincus
    2:22 for Clippers to hold on - and it won't be easy - despite their 6-point lead
  • 5/14/2014 4:17:13 AM Eric Pincus
    Clippers get 3 shots at the basket - no points
  • 5/14/2014 4:17:16 AM Mike.James
    Jordan called for an offensive foul. He's done. His habit of smiling in instances like this cannot be anything Doc Rivers likes. That wasn't the kind of performance the Clippers envisioned.
  • 5/14/2014 4:17:22 AM melissa.rohlin
    The Thunder are getting a lot of second chances, but they can't convert.
  • 5/14/2014 4:17:46 AM Eric Pincus
    Reggie Jackson makes it 101-97 - only 1:30 left
  • 5/14/2014 4:18:01 AM melissa.rohlin
    Jackson just cut it to a four-point Clipper lead. 101-97 with 1:12 left.
  • BG to the line with a 101-97 lead. (1:08)
  • 5/14/2014 4:18:18 AM Eric Pincus
    Blake Griffin with 2 FT coming - Clippers need them badly - both of them
  • 5/14/2014 4:18:42 AM Eric Pincus
    Griffin nails the first easily
  • 5/14/2014 4:19:02 AM Mike.James
    It's a four-point game after Crawford fired up an errant three from 26 feet. Griffin goes to the line with 1:08 left. Griffin makes one of two but Baby gets the rebound. That's huge.
  • 5/14/2014 4:19:09 AM Eric Pincus
    Griffin 1-2 FT - but Glen Davis snags a huge offensive board
  • 5/14/2014 4:19:34 AM Eric Pincus
    Chris Paul with a HUGE shot
  • BG missed 2nd FT, but Baby came away with rebound and CP nails elbow jumper. LAC 104, OKC 97 (49.2)
  • 5/14/2014 4:20:03 AM melissa.rohlin
    Griffin makes one of two free throws, but Big Baby gets the rebound. OKC really messed up by not boxing out on that play. CP3 then makes a jumper. Clippers are up 104-97 with 49.2 seconds left.
  • 5/14/2014 4:20:58 AM Mike.James
    Paul off the high screen from Griffin, makes it from 16 feet and the Clippers lead by seven with 49 seconds to play. Davis' offensive rebound, getting inside Ibaka, may be the play that seals this game for the Clippers. Of course, there's plenty of time left.
  • 5/14/2014 4:21:23 AM Eric Pincus
    If Clippers survive the final 49.2 seconds - biggest win in franchise history
  • 5/14/2014 4:21:24 AM melissa.rohlin
    Griffin has 17 rebounds, a playoff career high, according to TNT.
  • 5/14/2014 4:21:46 AM Eric Pincus
    Durant for 3
  • 5/14/2014 4:22:05 AM melissa.rohlin
    Durant makes a three-pointer to cut the Clippers to 4 again. 104-100 with just under 30 left.
