    @Mike: You shouldn't be so hard on the eldery...
  • 5/16/2014 3:46:18 AM Mike.James
    @Melissa: Yeah, I should be more gracious to my elders.
  • Remember when Durant made those 3 straight 3s? #Clippers erased that with 9-0 run since.

    Timeout, Thunder. The Clippers have increased their lead to 14.

    Donald Sterling update:  Clippers owner won't be paying any fine because he doesn't deserve "any punishment at all" for comments disparaging blacks, plus it violates his due process rights. So says his lawyer in a letter to the league, according to published reports. More here: Donald Sterling Refusing to Pay $2.5 Million Fine

    Jordan with a dunk. It's been a while since we've seen that, and OKC calls a timeout as the Clipper lead moves back to 14. Great feed by Griffin, who has six assists to go with his 12 points, five boards and zero turnovers.
  • Not even halftime and OKC has eight more fouls and shot 11 fewer free throws..NBA showing overwhelming remorse
  • 5/16/2014 3:48:31 AM Mike.James
    By the way, Westbrook is scoreless from the field.
  • 5/16/2014 3:50:25 AM Eric Pincus
    Second on Blake Griffin - crowd unhappy with the call 
  • 5/16/2014 3:51:31 AM Mike.James
    Durant's shot is so soft, it looks like a cottonball in the air. It's a piece of art.
  • 5/16/2014 3:52:15 AM Eric Pincus
    As rough as it's been - Thunder should be pretty happy with where they are - down 8 with 28.4 left in the half

    Eric Pincus is sitting next to me. And he's singing. Help.

    It Takes Two

    Meanwhile . . . Matt Barnes to the line
  • 5/16/2014 3:54:14 AM Eric Pincus
    Matt Barnes misses both
  • 5/16/2014 3:54:27 AM melissa.rohlin
    Matt Barnes misses both free throws. Clippers lead by 8 at halftime, 50-42.

  • 5/16/2014 3:55:43 AM Eric Pincus
    Serge Ibaka misses a good look at a three - halftime 50-42 LAC
  • 5/16/2014 3:56:06 AM Mike.James
    Barnes misses two free throws with 12 seconds left in the half but OKC can's score. LA is up 50-42. They have to be thrilled they're within eight when Westbrook hasn't appeared yet and the Thunder is shooting only 36%.
  • 5/16/2014 3:56:49 AM Eric Pincus
    Clippers FTA advantage - 17 attempts to 8 for OKC - that's the number to watch - very favorable to LAC
  • Rihanna just walked in front of me, paused...and said nothing about my victory over KB today on @Aroundthehorn ...Crushed

    When was the last time you saw a shot of Big Baby Davis driving to the basket like this one?

    Halftime crew on ESPN voicing the same thought about this game, that Doc Rivers should be concerned that the Clippers' lead is only eight in a game they should be leading by twice that.

  • 5/16/2014 4:13:27 AM Mike.James
    So, the Clippers have another 24 minutes of playing time before they'll know if they get to go to Oklahoma City for Game 6 or whether they'll suddenly have the time to have to respond to all the questions about the owner who shall go unmentioned.
  • 5/16/2014 4:13:48 AM Eric Pincus
    Game back on
  • 5/16/2014 4:13:51 AM Eric Pincus
    Three-pointer from Blake Griffin - LAC back up 11
  • 5/16/2014 4:14:24 AM Mike.James
    Griffin gets his first three-pointer of the playoffs.
  • 5/16/2014 4:15:35 AM Mike.James
    Nice drive by Redick, going with the left hand. Let's see how Durant responds. Oh, right, he scores on the second straight possession and draws the third foul on Jordan. Doubly effective.
  • 5/16/2014 4:15:59 AM Eric Pincus
    Matt Barnes short on a three-point attempt by what 2 ft?
  • 5/16/2014 4:16:11 AM Eric Pincus
    Fourth on Perkins - brings back Adams
  • 5/16/2014 4:16:34 AM Mike.James
    Barnes seems to have suddenly put a hitch in his outside shot, and it's not working.
  • 5/16/2014 4:16:50 AM Amy.Hubbard

  • 5/16/2014 4:17:27 AM Eric Pincus
    Durant is hitting everything now
  • 5/16/2014 4:17:49 AM Mike.James
    Adams, who replaced Perkins after he got his fourth foul, gets a strong offensive rebound and, who else?, Durant hits another jumper to cut it to six.
