    Oh wow. Blake blocks Westbrook, ball flied to CP3, who throws it off an OKC body to get possession. Nice.

    Talk about a MAJOR flop
  • 5/16/2014 3:04:30 AM Mike.James
    The couldn't have been a much worse possession for the Clippers, but exceptional defense at the other end, and Paul makes a great save going out of bounds. Westbrook's second foul could be an issue.
  • KD 0/5 off to bad start again
  • 5/16/2014 3:05:59 AM Mike.James
    Durant hasn't found the range yet, 0 for 5, but there's Adams on the follow. He really works hard.
  • 5/16/2014 3:06:03 AM Eric Pincus
    Thunder push back - get the deficit down to 6 - 20-14 with 2:55 left - Clippers ask for time
  • Wow...something is happening right now. Calls are actually going our way for once. #ClipperNation
  • 2:55 1Q: #Clippers 20, Thunder 14. @CP3 5 pts, 3 asts, 3 rebs; @blakegriffin32 7 pts, 3 asts, 2 rebs.

    Durant just made his first field goal of the night, he's 1-for-6 so far. I'm guessing he's going to go off big time at some point this game.

    Thunder starting cold
  • 5/16/2014 3:07:17 AM Mike.James
    You knew Durant was going to make that shot, an open pull-up from the free-throw line. He'll miss that shot at least two times out of every 150 times he shoots it. Still, Clippers lead 20-14.

    So what about the possibility of Luke Walton coaching the Knicks
  • 5/16/2014 3:10:37 AM Eric Pincus
    Clippers have Chris Paul/Jamal Crawford/Matt Barnes/Blake Griffin/Glen Davis on the floor vs. Reggie Jackson/Derek Fisher/Kevin Durant/Serge Ibaka/Steve Adams
  • 5/16/2014 3:10:58 AM melissa.rohlin
    Kevin Durant just tried to get Blake to bite on a foul. He didn't. Smart, Blake, smart.
  • 5/16/2014 3:11:30 AM Eric Pincus
    @Abramiam_Stefan - I could see Luke Walton on the bench with the Knicks - maybe as an assistant - I'd be surprised if head coach but could be . . . 

    Of course that's a bit off topic!

    Hi guys, Go Thunder.
  • 5/16/2014 3:12:10 AM Eric Pincus
    Glen Davis a factor - 4 quick points
  • KD feeds Adams for the reverse layup. Steven's got 6 points/3 rebounds. Thunder trails Clippers 24-16 late in Q1.
  • Jack watched Clips in 2006 playoffs in Phx, but courtside at Staples? Ever? Only thing worse for Lakers would be a Clipper Kobe
  • 5/16/2014 3:14:12 AM Eric Pincus
    Collison should have re-fed the post there with Griffin guarded by Fisher
  • 5/16/2014 3:14:42 AM Mike.James
    Griffin can't take advantage of being guarded by Derek Fisher. Fisher was using his stroller to keep him at bay.
  • 5/16/2014 3:14:43 AM Eric Pincus
    Glen Davis - Big Baby - 6 points
  • 5/16/2014 3:15:02 AM melissa.rohlin
    Big Baby has 6 pts on 3-for-3 shooting....
  • 5/16/2014 3:15:17 AM Eric Pincus
    Very strong start for LAC 30-16 - end of a quarter
  • 5/16/2014 3:15:21 AM Abramian_Stefan
    agreed
  • 5/16/2014 3:15:25 AM Abramian_Stefan
    Wow 6 TO for OKC so far
  • END 1: #Clippers 30, Thunder 16. @blakegriffin32 9 pts, 3 asts; @CP3 5 pts, 5 asts. MORE STATS: nba.com/tvc/index.html…
  • 5/16/2014 3:15:54 AM Eric Pincus
    @Abramian_Stefan - weakness for Thunder = turnovers - a MUST for the Clippers to force 'em tonight.
  • 5/16/2014 3:16:05 AM Mike.James
    Barnes makes it a 12-point lead, and Big Baby floats through the air for a reverse left layup to push the first-quarter lead to 14, 30-16. A great start, but we know how great starts have worked out the last two games. Right @melissarohlin?
  • 5/16/2014 3:16:07 AM melissa.rohlin
    End of first quarter: Clippers 30, OKC 16. Griffin leads all scorers with 9 points.
  • 5/16/2014 3:16:32 AM melissa.rohlin
    @Mike: The Clippers are doomed....
  • 5/16/2014 3:16:48 AM its_garrett_bro
    This 14 point lead has Clipp fans nationwide hyped
  • 5/16/2014 3:16:53 AM Eric Pincus
    My analysis earlier today - Clippers need to keep the Thunder of the line - would lead to more even rebounding.  So far tonight - OKC 2 FTA - Clippers up 12-10 on boards
  • End of 1 in LA. Clippers up on Thunder 30-16. Adams 6 points, Sefolosha 5 , Durant 3 assists. Westbrook a pair of steals.
  • 5/16/2014 3:18:33 AM Mike.James
    @Melissa: That's old-time Clippers feeling ... the feeling you had while watching them fritter away a 15-point lead in the last 90 seconds. Maybe the new Clippers can play four good quarters tonight.
  • 5/16/2014 3:19:38 AM Mike.James
    It's certainly unrealistic to expect Kevin Durant (1 for 7) and Russell Westbrook (0-4) to continue struggling. It's just a matter of when they get on track....
  • OKC has twice as many fouls.. three times as many turnovers, and has missed more than twice as many shots...horrible quarter.
  • 5/16/2014 3:20:37 AM melissa.rohlin
    @Mike: But, but, I remember this Clippers team frittering away a 7-point lead in the final 48 seconds, um, the other night.
  • 5/16/2014 3:20:56 AM Eric Pincus
    Danny Granger took Kevin Durant to the post - forcing his second foul - then a tech on Durant
  • 5/16/2014 3:21:06 AM Abramian_Stefan
    What a moonshot 3 by Fisher
  • 5/16/2014 3:22:11 AM melissa.rohlin
    Yeah, so, Durant and Westbrook are a combined 1-for-11 tonight from the field. That's not going to last.
  • 5/16/2014 3:22:19 AM Eric Pincus
    Derek Fisher hitting shots
