Notebook: Clippers 104, Suns 96


Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com
Posted Wed Mar 05, 2014 12:50 AM - Updated Wed Mar 05, 2014 12:50 AM

THE FACT: Only 1.5 games separated the Nos. 6 through 9 spots in the Western Conference entering Tuesday night. The Phoenix Suns were No. 7, just ahead of No. 8 Dallas. After Tuesday night, the Suns were No.8, one-half game ahead of the Memphis Grizzlies.

THE LEAD: Matt Barnes of the Los Angeles Clippers poured in 28 points, including an amazing stretch of 4:15 just after halftime, to lead his crew to a 104-99 win over the Phoenix Suns Tuesday night.

Barnes' 14-point third-quarter spree helped turn the Clippers' 55-44 halftime deficit into a 66-66 tie. Then the Clippers (42-20), with Blake Griffin hitting key shots, started to pull away. Griffin started slow but ended with 22 points, plus six assists and five rebounds. Chris Paul had 14 points and nine assists.

For the Suns (35-25) leader, Goran Dragic had modest numbers with 14 points and nine assists. P.J. Tucker led them with 18 points and 10 boards.

The Clippers won their fifth straight. They have won eight of their past 10 games.

QUOTABLE: "Whenever the basket is that big, you want to keep getting looks."
-- L.A.'s Matt Barnes

THE STAT: Barnes' 28 points was his season high.

TURNING POINT: With the Suns leading 69-68, the Clippers went on a 13-2 run that gave them an 81-71 lead with moments to go in the third quarter. Griffin started the burst with a short jumper and a mid-range turn-around bank shot.

QUOTABLE II: "In the first half, it felt like they were in a playoff game and we were not. In the second half, we joined them, and it turned into a really good game, especially for us."
-- Clippers coach Doc Rivers

QUOTABLE III: "For the whole team to fight through adversity was huge. I think that's going to serve us well, especially in the playoffs."
-- L.A.'s Blake Griffin

QUOTABLE IV: "Obviously, he is big and strong. If you try to come over with a big, they just lob over the top to (DeAndre) Jordan. If you come with a guard or a wing, they kick it out, and Barnes shoots it. Or Chris Paul drives it again and kicks it out. They make it very tough on you when he dominates in there."
-- Suns coach Jeff Hornacek on guarding Griffin

QUOTABLE V: "There's no hiding from it. Good teams are winning big games right now...We have to win some games."
-- Phoenix's P.J. Tucker on the Suns' imposing schedule upcoming

HOT: Tucker shot 8-for-11.

NOT: The Suns missed 8 of their 19 free throws.

ROOKIE WATCH: Alex Len made his starting debut for the Suns at center. Len, the No. 5 pick in last year's draft, has had an uneventful season. Against the Clippers, he had six points and six boards.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Danny Granger made his Clippers' debut. He played nearly four minutes and grabbed one rebound.

NOTABLE: Griffin hit 20-plus points for the 20th straight game. This is the greatest such streak in Clippers' history; Dominique Wilkins once had 19 straight with 20-plus points...Leandro Barbosa, who has been injured off and on since his return to the Suns this season, suffered a left-hand fracture early in the game. The Suns believe Barbosa won't need surgery but there is no timetable for his return. The injury could open up time for rookie Archie Goodwin...Dragic is shooting 51 percent, including 41 from 3-point range. The only other player to hit the 50/40 marks this season is Marco Belinelli of San Antonio (50 percent overall, 46 percent on 3s.). The only Suns players ever to hit these marks are Steve Nash (six times) and Jeff Hornacek (three times)....Eric Bledsoe continues to play 5-on-5 in practice; he could return to the Suns within a week or so...Jordan had 17 rebounds for the Clippers, along with 10 points. He is averaging 18 rebounds in two games vs. the Suns...This was the fourth-highest scoring game ever for Barnes.

UP NEXT: For the Clippers, Thursday @ Los Angeles Lakers, Saturday vs. Hawks and Monday vs. Suns. For the Suns, Thursday vs. Thunder, Sunday @ Golden State and Monday @ Los Angeles Clippers.
