Comeback Effort Falls Short As Clippers Lose To Thunder, 112-108

The Los Angeles Clippers, trying to win their third straight game on Wednesday night, staged a fourth-quarter comeback in Oklahoma City, but fell just short, losing to the Thunder 112-108. Blake Griffin, in the second return to his home state, scored 35 points, grabbed 11 rebounds, and dished out six assists in defeat. The duo of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook combined for 55 points for the Thunder, propelling them to their 13th win in 16 games.

Durant (29 points) and Westbrook (26 points) led Oklahoma City, but the Clippers made them work for it, as the duo shot 42.2% from the field. However, they also shot a combined 17 free throws, making 15. Kendrick Perkins grabbed 17 rebounds for the Thunder.

Griffin had a stellar game, making 15 of his 20 field goal attempts. He was one of six Clippers to score in double figures on the night. Chris Kaman has 12 points, eight rebounds, and six blocks for the Clippers, who shot 50.6% from the field on the night.

Mo Williams scored 16 points and dished out nine assists for the Clippers. Williams also made 4-of-6 shots from beyond the arc. The Clippers continue their road trip on Friday in Dallas against the Mavericks.
