    WOW. WOW.
  • 5/14/2014 4:22:53 AM Eric Pincus
    Clippers miss (Crawford) - Durant scores - CP3 loses it - Thunder ball down 2 with 11.3 left - insane
  • 5/14/2014 4:23:12 AM melissa.rohlin
    Durant, after making a three, makes a layup, then the Thunder forces a turnover. Holy moly. the Clippers are up 104-102 with 11 seconds left, Thunder ball.
  • 5/14/2014 4:23:30 AM Mike.James
    Durant with a three over Davis with 40 seconds to go. Crawford misses a drive and OKC suddenly is up only two. Then a turnover and it's OKC ball, down two with 11 seconds to play. Another really bad close to a quarter by the Clippers. Kind of like the woeful Clippers of yesteryear.
  • This is NOT over. 11.3 seconds left. Thunder pulls to within 2. 104-102. #ThunderVsClippers
  • 5/14/2014 4:24:37 AM melissa.rohlin
    Theyre saying the ball was last touched by the Clippers. Doc is losing it.
  • 5/14/2014 4:24:40 AM Mike.James
    Video replay to see who's ball it is under the hoop. Doc is furious that they're giving the ball to OKC. TNT commentators think the call was wrong....

  • 5/14/2014 4:25:20 AM Eric Pincus
    Westbrook fouled on a 3-point shot with 6.4 seconds left by Chris Paul - 3 FT - amazing
  • How was that a foul?
  • 5/14/2014 4:25:27 AM melissa.rohlin
    WOW. With the Clippers up by 2 and just a few seconds left, Westbrook threw up a three pointer and a foul was called. He's now going to the line for three free throws.
  • 5/14/2014 4:25:54 AM Eric Pincus
    "That was all ball" - lip reading Doc Rivers
  • 5/14/2014 4:26:09 AM Eric Pincus
    Westbrook FT - 1-point game 
  • 5/14/2014 4:26:16 AM Eric Pincus
    Westbrook ties it at 104 with 6.4
  • After a key steal in final seconds, Russell Westbrook sinks 3 free throws to put Thunder UP 105-104. 6.4 seconds left. #Playoffs
  • 5/14/2014 4:26:34 AM melissa.rohlin
    Westbrook makes all three free throws, giving the Thunder a 105-104 lead.
  • 5/14/2014 4:26:57 AM Eric Pincus
    Thunder somehow up by 1
  • 5/14/2014 4:27:01 AM Mike.James
    With 6.4 seconds left, Paul is called for a foul on a Westbrook three-point attempt. He's on the line and makes all three for a 105-104 lead. Big-time Clipper collapse in this one, but they still have six seconds left. Paul shouldn't have been that close on that shot; he had no chance at blocking it.
  • 5/14/2014 4:27:19 AM melissa.rohlin
    Clippers are down by 1 point with 6 seconds left. Their ball.
  • Down 1.... 6.4 seconds to go. LAC ball. Here we go.
  • 5/14/2014 4:27:51 AM melissa.rohlin
    What play is Doc gonna call?!

    Clippers were up 104-97 with 49.2 left -- in 42.8 seconds the Thunder have scored 8 points in a row to go up 105-104 - Clippers have 6.4 seconds to get a score
  • CP lost the ball. Game over.
  • 5/14/2014 4:28:53 AM Eric Pincus
    Chris Paul lost the ball - that's it - thunder win 105-104 - stunning finish
  • Thunder scores 8 points in final 49 seconds. Holds Clippers scoreless to take Game 5, 105-104. OKC takes series lead 3-2. game 6 in LA Thurs
  • FINAL: Thunder 105, #Clippers 104. Game 6 Thursday at 7:30 p.m. PT. STATS: nba.com/tvc/index.html…
  • 5/14/2014 4:29:22 AM melissa.rohlin
    Game over: Thunder wins, 105-104. Thunder now lead the series, 3-2. Game 6 will be in LA on Thursday. Game 7, if necessary, will be in OKC on Sunday.
  • 5/14/2014 4:29:33 AM Mike.James
    One chance at redemption. Paul turns it over, trying to drive. This is a crushing defeat for the Clippers. Doc Rivers is very angry about the call on the review, but that's irrelevant. The Clippers, with their late lead, never should have put themselves in this position. Going to be very hard to recover from this one.
  • 5/14/2014 4:29:46 AM Eric Pincus
    "Our ball" re: Doc Rivers - that's what he was screaming - didn't like the out of bounds play that gave the Thunder possession
  • 5/14/2014 4:30:41 AM Eric Pincus
    Russell Westbrook finished with 38 points - 27 for Kevin Durant (6-22) - no one else in double figures - it was enough, somehow
  • 5/14/2014 4:30:58 AM Mike.James
    Durant really came on after Westbrook cooled off, with 10 late points. He finished with 27.
  • 5/14/2014 4:31:38 AM Eric Pincus
    Blake Griffin led the Clippers with 24 points and 17 rebounds.  Chris Paul with 17 points, 14 assists - but 2 key turnovers and the foul on Westbrook that ultimately was the difference
  • Russell Westbrook (38p) after the win: "Coming into the game, I told myself I was going into attack mode."
  • 5/14/2014 4:33:26 AM Mike.James
    TNT commentators still talking about the video replay, questioning the officials' ruling. Still, it wasn't absolutely definitive ... and there were other issues with the Clippers play down the stretch, when they were outscored 17-3. The Clippers now know how the Thunder felt after Game 4.
  • 5/14/2014 4:34:41 AM melissa.rohlin
    What a wild final few minutes. The Thunder came back from an 11 point deficit in the final 3:30 of the game.
  • You don't want to miss post-game reaction on this one! Flip now to @FSOklahoma

    How long can the nba get away with this, I'm sick of bad ref's always being the topic of discussion.
  • 5/14/2014 4:36:57 AM Rhee Ali Tee
    Who wants to watch rigged games? The last out-of-bounds and the 3-point foul on Paul were obviously manipulated in the Thunder's favor. From Sterling to this cheap garbage--Does the NBA have no face?
  • 5/14/2014 4:37:00 AM gino
    Okc paid the refs
  • 5/14/2014 4:37:01 AM ElFantomas
    This will go down as the biggest rigged game in the history of the NBA Playoffs. Unfrickenreal...
  • 5/14/2014 4:37:25 AM Eric Pincus
    Obviously there are some upset Clippers fans - the questionable call on the out of bounds play in particular
  • 5/14/2014 4:38:43 AM Mike.James
    That final play by Paul isn't one you'd expect of a guy who so often makes such a positive difference in crunch time. But that wasn't the only problem. Crawford's misses late were pivotal. And much more has been expected of DeAndre Jordan. His contribution: zero points, four rebounds and six fouls.
  • Thunder defense gets the stops on the final 4 LAC possessions, including the final second. On offense, KD scores 10 points in final 3.5 mins
  • Game 6 is in Los Angeles on Thursday night, 9:30 CT on TNT. #ThunderVsClippers
