Notebook: Clippers 101, Rockets 93


Dan Arritt, for NBA.com
Posted Thu Feb 27, 2014 2:14 AM - Updated Thu Feb 27, 2014 2:14 AM

THE FACT: Clippers center DeAndre Jordan had 13 points, 10 rebounds, four blocks and three steals, becoming the first member of the club since Elton Brand in 2007 to hit those marks in a game.

THE LEAD: The Clippers continue to round themselves into a team that expects to make a deep run in the postseason. They added another piece to their puzzle on Wednesday and may add more in the coming days. First, they had to host the Rockets (39-19), a team the Clippers (40-20) very well could run into in the Western Conference playoffs. L.A. flexed its muscle and received its usual solid performances from All-Stars Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, and got a great lift from reserves Darren Collison and Jared Dudley, helping them to a 101-93 victory at Staples Center and finishing a season sweep of the Rockets.

QUOTABLE: "It was great to see DC step up for us. I thought his defense was huge too."
-- Clippers coach Doc Rivers

THE STAT: Rockets guard James Harden, the league's fifth-leading scorer coming into the game this season (24.7), scored 18 points on 6-for-16 shooting. In three games against L.A. this season, he averaged 15 points while shooting 34 percent from the field and 2-for-19 from 3-point range.

TURNING POINT: The score was knotted at 76 when Collison and Dudley sank back-to-back 3-pointers inside 10 minutes to play to give L.A. a six-point lead. Houston got as close as three with just under five minutes left but Collison pulled up from 12 feet and sank a jumper and Barnes scored on a fast break off an assist from Jordan with 3:40 left to push the lead to seven. The Rockets weren't able to trim it back to a one-possession game, leaving them with their second loss in the last 12 games.

HOT: Collison scored 17 of his 19 points in the second half and was one of the primary defenders on Harden while holding him to five points after the half. Collison and Dudley each shot 3-for-5 from 3-point range, the first time Dudley made at least three from beyond the arc since Jan. 8 and the most points he has scored since Jan. 15. Can't forget about Griffin and Paul either. Griffin finished with 23 points and 16 rebounds, his fifth game of at least 20 points and 15 boards this season after compiling five such games in the previous two years. Paul had 14 points and nine assists and helped limit Patrick Beverly to just two shots and five points before fouling out in the closing minutes. Dwight Howard and Jordan Hamilton were the lone highlights for the Rockets. Howard finished with 23 points and 11 rebounds while Hamilton shot 4-for-8 from long range and finished with 16 points off the bench.

NOT: The Rockets had their share of underperformers as Chandler Parsons also had a forgetful night. He finished with seven points -- nearly 10 below his scoring average -- on 3-for-13 shooting. His evening hit rock bottom when he set up for a wide-open 3-pointer on the wing but the pass went through his hands and out of bounds with 2:27 on the clock and Houston trailing by six. Parsons had converted his only 3-pointer on five tries on the previous possession, cutting the deficit to four.

GOOD MOVE: Injuries largely prompted the move but Clippers coach Doc Rivers kept two ball handlers on the floor in the fourth quarters, Collison and Paul, and they worked well together. Paul actually ceded the closer role to Collison, who came through over and over again down the stretch.

QUOTABLE II: "If we're going to play DC and Chris, we're really small, but we're really fast."
-- Doc Rivers

BAD MOVE: The reason Collison was likely on the floor down the stretch was starting guard Jamal Crawford sustained a left calf strain in the second quarter and did not return for the second half. Crawford is one of the top bench players in the league, though he has been forced into a starting role due to a bulging disc in the lower back of J.J. Redick, who missed his ninth straight game. The Clippers are reportedly one of the finalists to acquire Danny Granger, who was waived by the 76ers earlier in the day. His addition might be even more urgent if Crawford is out for an extended period.

QUOTABLE III: "When guys get injured when nobody is around, that always scares me. We'll know more tomorrow."
-- Doc Rivers

NOTABLE: Glen "Big Baby" Davis, bought out by Orlando last week and picked up by the Clippers, made his debut with 1.8 seconds left in the third quarter. He ended up playing five minutes, contributing two points, two rebounds and two blocked shots.

UP NEXT: For the Clippers, Saturday vs. New Orleans, @ Phoenix, @ L.A. Lakers. For the Rockets, Saturday vs. Detroit, Tuesday vs. Miami, Wednesday @ Orlando.
