It wasn't easy, and it certainly wasn't pretty, but the Los Angeles Clippers ended their homestand with a win on Sunday, defeating the Detroit Pistons in overtime 87-83 at Staples Center. The Clippers closed out their homestand with a pair of weekend wins to finish 3-3 over the eight-day run.
Chris Paul had 19 points, 15 assists, four steals, and no turnovers to lead the Clippers to the win. Blake Griffin added 17 points and 11 rebounds for Los Angeles, who shot just 40.2% from the field during the game, including just four of 20 from three-point range. Caron Butler made just three of 16 shots for his six points, but also had eight rebounds.
Greg Monroe had 23 points and 15 rebounds for the Pistons in defeat, while Tayshaun Prince added 20 points and seven rebounds. The Pistons are just 4-18 on the road this season.
No rest for the weary, as the Clippers have just one day off before beginning a back-to-back-to-back set of road games on Tuesday in Indiana.
