Six could nix Clippers' hopes

Chris Paul has fouled out of 9 games in his career, playoffs and regular season included. His teams are 0-9 in those contests.

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

Stephen A Smith @stephenasmith

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.

J.A. Adande @jadande

A Redick-and-Rivers fast break in the fourth quarter of a crucial game. The NBA playoffs never cease to amaze

NBA on ESPN @ESPNNBA

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

Popovich has all the answers

There's nothing like a between-quarters Gregg Popovich interview. Why are the Spurs losing? "Too many fundamental errors." How can they fix that? "More attention to detail." Sounds about right! Watch live

Clippers out in front after three

The good news for Chris Paul & Co. is L.A. took its biggest lead of the game late in the third quarter and is up on the Spurs 81-76 in a game with 18 lead changes so far. The bad news is that Paul has 4 fouls with 12 minutes left. Watch live

Love not happy with Olynyk's foul
NBA 

Cavs forward Kevin Love on the foul that forced him out of the game: "That's not the way it's supposed to be. That's not the way you play basketball. ... The league will take a look at it, and it better be swift and just."

This would be a good time for Doc Rivers to take DeAndre Jordan out since he has to rest anyway and could come back to start the 4th.

Doc Rivers has strong opinions on Manu

The Clippers head coach apparently doesn't think Ginobili can guard Jamal Crawford. "He cannot guard you, but you're [messing] with him. He cannot guard you!" ESPN's Arash Markazi overheard Rivers telling the L.A. guard.

A loud "Beat L.A.!" chant in San Antonio. As someone who covered some great Lakers-Spurs series. Odd hearing that for the Clippers now.

ESPN Stats & Info @ESPNStatsInfo

Grizzlies’ Mike Conley (facial injury) out for Game 4. Conley: averaged 17.0 points, 3.5 rebounds in first two games of series vs. Blazers

Norman Chad @NormanChad

Tim Duncan first player in NBA to play 9,000 minutes of playoff basketball. He honestly believes he has not committed a foul in that time.

Kevin Pelton @kpelton

Long stretch coming of the Clippers trying to defend Kawhi without Matt Barnes. Uh oh.

Duncan breaks through on free throws
NBA 

Tim Duncan hadn't knocked down a single shot from the free-throw line since Game 1 against the Clippers, going 0-of-1 in Game 2 and 0-of-2 in Game 3. The drought ended early in the third quarter, and Duncan is now 2-of-6 on free throws in Game 4. But the Clippers have the lead. Watch live

NBA 

The Cavs' star on Kelly Olynyk's foul that resulted in his shoulder injury: "I thought it was a bush-league play. ... I have no doubt in my mind that he did it on purpose."
