Suns-Clippers notebook

THE FACTS: The Los Angeles Clippers withstood a late comeback from the Phoenix Suns on Sunday afternoon and held on to win for the fourth time in the last five games, 108-103, at Staples Center.

QUOTABLE: "We lost the game in the first half."
- Phoenix guard Steve Nash

THE STAT: Clippers rookie Blake Griffin fouled out for the second time in his professional career, but still totaled 28 points, 12 rebounds and four assists for his 18th consecutive double-double. Griffin is one of only three players in the NBA averaging at least 20 points and 12 rebounds, joining Dwight Howard of Orlando and Kevin Love of Minnesota.

TURNING POINT: The Suns crawled back from an 18-point first-half deficit and tied the score, 85-85, with just under eight minutes remaining, but the Clippers followed with an 8-0 run highlighted by a 3-pointer by Baron Davis. Phoenix never got even again.

QUOTE II: "In the second half, we got a little bit out of rhythm. But we stuck to it and pulled out a win."
-- Davis, who finished with 15 points and nine assists

HOT: Phoenix guard Mickael Pietrus, in just his second game since his trade from Orlando, keyed the comeback. He scored 15 of his team-high 25 points in the fourth quarter, shooting 3-for-4 from beyond the 3-point stripe in that span. He never got off his final 3-point try, however, as Eric Gordon stripped the ball away with 9.9 seconds remaining, leading to a slam dunk by Al-Farouq Aminu for the game's final points.

NOT: Phoenix forward Jared Dudley, who had a career-high 27 points Monday against San Antonio and then topped that with 33 on Thursday against Miami, finished with six points on 1-for-5 shooting.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Nash, who came in averaging 17 points and 10.5 assists, bounced back from a slow first half and finished with 21 points and 15 assists.

GOOD MOVE: Phoenix elected to intentionally foul Clippers center DeAndre Jordan with about 3 1/2 minutes remaining and it paid off as Jordan shot 3-for-6 from the line in three trips, giving the Suns an opening to come back. Jordan came in shooting 44.4 percent from the line.

BAD MOVE: Anybody who paid top dollar and wasted their Christmas watching the Lakers play haplessly against the Miami Heat. The Clippers continue to play a more exciting brand of basketball and remain one of the best deals in town.

ROOKIE WATCH: Aminu finished with nine points and four rebounds in 22 minutes of court time, his most action in nearly a month.

NOTABLE: The Clippers ended a nine-game losing streak against the Suns while playing before their second sellout of the season.

UP NEXT: For the Clippers, Monday @ Sacramento, Wednesday vs. Utah, Sunday vs. Atlanta. For the Suns, Wednesday vs. Philadelphia, Friday vs. Detroit, Sunday @ Sacramento.
