Clips can't close door on Spurs

Kawhi Leonard made one bad decision on a heat check of a jumper, but he has San Antonio right back in the thick of it with less than 2 minutes remaining in the fourth. Chris Paul (30 points, 7 assists) has been huge; can he keep L.A. from going down 3-1? Watch live

Chris Paul is staying in the game for now because, well, they have no depth. Lester Hudson isn't playing in this spot.

Chris Paul takes the fifth in fourth

It's a good thing for the Clippers that Austin Rivers is on fire, because CP3 just picked up his fifth foul with over 8 minutes remaining in regulation. All 5 Paul fouls have come in the second half. The Clippers' lead hovers at just a shade under double digits ... for now. Watch live on ESPN/Watch ESPN

Wow! I'm about to faint. Austin Rivers is balling. Possibly saving the Clippers season right now. Clips have extended the lead w/ DJ out.


Austin Rivers has 13 points off the bench for the Clippers. The rest of the bench has combined for 8 points.
