Everyone who says "all" Harden does is draw fouls isn't appreciating how hard is it to recognize &react quickly before defender can withdraw

Clippers coming up big in the fourth

With a deluge of 3-pointers, Los Angeles has taken a double-digit lead on the Rockets with less than 3 minutes left in regulation. Blake Griffin is leading the way, and he's 1 rebound shy of a triple-double. Follow live

This is as vocal as I've ever seen Blake Griffin on the court. He is, by his own admission, a quiet leader who leads by example usually.

Calvin Watkins @calvinwatkins

Rockets look very disjointed on offense. Need to get more touches for Howard on the post and Harden in clear situations.

Chris Paul high fiving each one of his teammates before the start of the fourth quarter. "We're going to win this one," he tells them.

ESPN Stats & Info @ESPNStatsInfo

Clippers saw big improvement when Austin Rivers brought the ball up in the 3rd 6-19, 15 points in 1st half 8-11, 24 points in 3rd quarter

Clippers take third quarter lead to bank

Did Jamal Crawford call "bank" on his 3-pointer off the glass near the end of the 3rd? It counted either way, and the Clippers lead the Rockets 83-77. But keep an eye on Blake Griffin, who picked up his fourth foul. Follow live

Some series the better teams know they are better, then close it out. We will see if Houston is one of those teams tonight.


Clippers are 5-5 on 3-pointers in the third quarter after shooting 2-15 on them in the first half.

Turnovers tell the story of Game 1

Chris Paul can't be enjoying himself on the Clippers bench, as the two teams have combined for 35 turnovers already. The Rockets hold a one-possession lead midway through the third quarter. Follow live
