    Wow. KD with a long 3 to cut the Clippers' lead to 5, 59-54, with 7:30 left in the third quarter.
  • 5/16/2014 4:19:51 AM Mike.James
    Jordan with a strong couple of follows and finally scores inside. He's much more effective than in the last game.
  • 5/16/2014 4:20:02 AM Eric Pincus
    Third on Westbrook with 7:24 left in 3rd
  • 10 points in 2.5 minutes for Kevin Durant. He's got 24, Thunder trails LAC 59-54. 7:24 left in third.
  • 5/16/2014 4:20:29 AM melissa.rohlin
    Durant is 4-for-6 from three-point range tonight. He's leading all scorers with 24 points.
  • 5/16/2014 4:20:50 AM Mike.James
    Durant is going crazy. He's got 10 in the quarter, and it's a five point game. That shot was from about 29 feet. Yeah, he's not a bad player.
  • 10 points in 4.5 minutes for Kevin Durant. He's got 24, Thunder trails LAC 59-54. 7:24 left in third.

    Thunder within 5 - turn the ball over - Griffin going to the line after forcing a foul on N Collison
  • 5/16/2014 4:22:37 AM Eric Pincus
    Serge Ibaka not on the court - something wrong with his leg - unclear as to what
  • 6:29 3Q: #Clippers 60, Thunder 54. @deandrejordan 5 pts, 10 rebs, 2 stls.
  • 5/16/2014 4:23:31 AM melissa.rohlin
    Westbrook with a pretty bad turnover. He's really struggling tonight. He's 0-for-5 from the field and has 2 turnovers. Amazing how a player can look totally different from one game to another. He was remarkable in Game 5.
  • 5/16/2014 4:25:25 AM Mike.James
    Griffin is 5 for 8 from the line. The Clippers are shooting only 58% on free throws, and in a game that's going to be as tight as this one, that won't get the job done. Paul is also 2 for 8 from the field. Still, the Clippers lead by six. Westbrook is still scoreless from the field.

    Rihanna was just shown on the jumbotron sporting a cropped pink wig. Still looked gorgeous. Wouldn't be able to say that about pretty much anyone else.
  • 5/16/2014 4:26:08 AM Eric Pincus
    Former Clippers guard (now with Pelcians) Eric Gordon in the building
  • 5/16/2014 4:27:19 AM Mike.James
    Westbrook now 0 for 6 from the field, and Redick follows with another left-handed drive.
  • 5/16/2014 4:27:21 AM melissa.rohlin
    Reddick has 12 points for the Clippers, he's giving them a much-need boost. The Clippers are up, 62-54, with 5:34 left in the third.
  • 5/16/2014 4:27:44 AM melissa.rohlin
    @Mike: Is this the same point guard we saw in Game 5?

    Blake. Just. Missed. A. Dunk.
  • 5/16/2014 4:29:54 AM Mike.James
    The Clippers are managing to hang on under the Durant onslaught. But Griffin on two possessions missed a dunk and a point-blank turnaround. Missed opportunities.
  • 5/16/2014 4:30:08 AM Eric Pincus
    Clippers hot start long forgotten - down to 40.8% shooting from the field - Thunder within five
  • 5/16/2014 4:31:04 AM Eric Pincus
    Thunder ball - dangerous time for LAC - until Westbrook throws the ball to Ryan Hollins on the Clippers' bench
  • 5/16/2014 4:31:08 AM Amy.Hubbard

  • 5/16/2014 4:31:26 AM Mike.James
    Brutal possession for the Clippers, saved by Westbrook's wild turnover on the other end. Then Paul scores to put it back to seven.
  • OKC hanging around..and hanging around..
  • 5/16/2014 4:32:42 AM Mike.James
    Westbrook finally scores, off a feed from Nick Collison. Then Barnes passes up an outside shot, drives the lane and throws it down hard with a left. Higher percentage on that shot.
  • 5/16/2014 4:33:22 AM Eric Pincus
    One-handed touch pass from Blake to Jordan was very sharp - 68-61
  • 5/16/2014 4:33:25 AM Mike.James
    Here's a big surprise: Durant is 7 for 7 from the line. Ibaka apparently done for the game with a bad calf.
  • 5/16/2014 4:34:23 AM Eric Pincus
    Thunder now shooting 42.0% - better than Clippers 41.3% - turnovers though - OKC 12 to LAC 4
  • What a pass by @blakegriffin32 tapping it in mid-air to @deandrejordan for alley-oop layup. LAC 68, OKC 61
  • 5/16/2014 4:34:41 AM Mike.James
    Blake Griffin has eight assists, only one fewer than Westbrook and Paul.
  • 5/16/2014 4:38:19 AM melissa.rohlin
    Durant with a dunk. The Clippers lead has been cut to 3, 68-65, with two minutes remaining in the third.
  • Ibaka doubtful return with calf injury...Little more urgency to Thunder now..
  • 5/16/2014 4:38:47 AM Eric Pincus
    Blake Griffin in the post - a badly needed basket - Thunder very active defensively
  • Russell delivers his 6th assist of the quarter, to KD for the dunk. Thunder trails Clippers by 5, late Q3.
  • 5/16/2014 4:39:20 AM melissa.rohlin
    Westbrook should just stop shooting. Tonight is not his night.

    Westbrook is 1-for-8 from the field, yet the Thunder are only down by 7 points.
  • 5/16/2014 4:39:56 AM Eric Pincus
    Glen Davis wedged the ball into the side of the rim - an ugly attempt - but it was so ugly, it threw off the Thunder - D Collison scores on the offensive putback
  • 5/16/2014 4:40:32 AM Eric Pincus
    Mr. October - Reggie Jackson with a dunk - 72-69 LAC
  • 5/16/2014 4:41:17 AM Eric Pincus
    Nick Collison for 3?  Nick Collison for 3!  Tied after three at 72
  • 5/16/2014 4:41:22 AM Mike.James
    Darren Collison with a great follow. Haven't seen a lot of him tonight. Westbrook misses, then makes his own follow. But a turnover by Paul results in a breakaway. It's definitely nervoustime for the Clippers ... and another three-point shot by Griffin certainly isn't the answer.
  • Driving slam from Reggie Jackson and 3-pointer from Nick Collison and this game is tied at 72, end of Q3. #ThunderVsClippers
  • 5/16/2014 4:41:42 AM melissa.rohlin
    The crowd is on its feet. Collison hits a three-pointer to tie it at 72-72. End of third quarter. Here we go againnnnnnnnn
