    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.

    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.

    @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 4:31:26 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
  • #okcthunder Westbrook with eight consecutive playoff scoring totals of at least 23. Regular-season low: 12 points vs. Clippers, Nov. 21.
  • END 3: #Clippers and Thunder tied at 72. @blakegriffin32 18 pts, 8 asts, 7 rebs. MORE STATS:…
  • 5/16/2014 4:43:15 AM Mike.James
    And there you have it. Three quarters that didn't need to be played. All the momentum is in OKC's favor right now. Remember Jamal Crawford, the NBA's sixth man of the year? He's played 8 minutes.
  • 5/16/2014 4:43:17 AM melissa.rohlin
    Will the Clippers end their season tonight or will we head back to OKC for a Game 7? The next 12 minutes will tell.
  • 5/16/2014 4:44:22 AM melissa.rohlin
    @Mike: And he only has two points in those eight minutes. Think it's about time Doc has another talk with him...
  • Headed to 4th: Kevin Durant 28 points (14 in Q3), Russell Westbrok 11 assists (7 in Q3) Full stats at and Thunder App
  • 5/16/2014 4:45:23 AM Eric Pincus
    Airball from Westbrook
  • 5/16/2014 4:45:37 AM Eric Pincus
    Jamal Crawford tonight - 2 points
  • 5/16/2014 4:46:01 AM Eric Pincus
    Not sure why the Thunder are launching 3's without trying to get inside
  • 5/16/2014 4:46:20 AM Eric Pincus
    Westbrook puts OKC up 74-72
  • 5/16/2014 4:46:27 AM melissa.rohlin
    And the Thunder has taken the lead. 74-72.
  • 5/16/2014 4:46:41 AM Eric Pincus
    Griffin ties it back up
