Clips stage double-digit rally in 4th to knock off Grizzlies

LOS ANGELES (NBA.com exclusive) -- For one of the few times in recent memory, the fourth quarter belonged to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Staring at a 15-point deficit to start the final quarter against a team that had won five of its last seven, the Clippers regrouped and reenergized behind Eric Gordon, Al Thornton and a stifling defense, allowing them to catch up and then pull away for a 98-88 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies at Staples Center.

The Clippers (8-10) scored the final 22 points in winning for the fourth time in the last five games.

"All of a sudden, it came together," said Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy, who earned his 600th regular season victory as a head coach. "The aggressiveness, the double-teaming, the rotations, the pick-and-roll defense....it was all there in the fourth quarter."

The Clippers had made a habit of fading down the stretch this season, especially on their home floor. Two weeks ago, they allowed the final 16 points in a 15-point loss to the visiting Toronto Raptors.

But something clicked down the stretch against the Grizzlies (6-11). After Memphis center Marc Gasol scored on jump hook with 5:26 remaining, stretching his season-high point total to 26 points and pushing the Grizzlies' lead back to 12 points, the Clippers responded with one of the strongest defensive stretches in the club's recent history.

The front line starting blocking shots and rebounding, the backcourt began forcing turnovers and Gordon and Thornton blew past the Grizzlies in the open court, scoring 10 points each in the final quarter.

Gordon, in his first game back in the starting lineup since injuring his groin against the Grizzlies on Nov. 7 at Staples Center, finished with a season-high 29 points. Thornton scored 18 points and Marcus Camby and Baron Davis contributed 14 apiece. Camby also secured 14 rebounds and blocked three shots.

Chris Kaman, saddled with foul trouble for most of the game, scored in single digits for the first time this season, but six of his eight points and six of his 11 rebounds came in the final quarter, when the Clippers outscored the Grizzlies 33-7.

"Guys were scrapping," Camby said. "We had a lot of guys on the floor scrapping for loose balls and we were coming away with it, and Eric and Al were doing a great job of pushing the basketball and finishing on the other end."

The only downside to the fourth quarter came when Gordon hobbled off the court with 1:19 remaining after feeling tightness in his hamstring.

"Hopefully, we got it early enough that it's not a big deal," Dunleavy said, knocking on the wooden table in the post-game press conference.

Early on, it appeared it would be a long afternoon for the Clippers. The Grizzlies shot better than 60 percent in each of the first two quarters, then extended their lead to as many as 20 points late in the third.

With Kaman picking up his third foul midway through the second quarter and his fourth early in the third, Gasol had his way against backup DeAndre Jordan, who had missed the previous three games with a sprained ankle. Gasol made 11 of his first 12 shots and had already surpassed his season-high point total by the start of the fourth quarter.

The Clippers began to chip away, however, cutting the deficit to single digits on a driving layup by Davis with 3:50 remaining.

"I was sitting on the bench in the fourth quarter and I was talking to Mardy Collins and Coach [John] Lucas and I said, 'If we can get it to six with four minutes left, I have a good feeling that we're going to win this ball game.' " Davis said.

The Clippers cut the deficit to six one possession later on a steal by Kaman followed by Gordon's fast-break layup. They didn't stop there, however, running off another 16 straight points to end the game.

Dunleavy called it the most satisfying win of the season.

"If you spot anybody 20 points and come back to win, it's a heckuva win," he said.
