Notebook: Clippers 112, Suns 105


Dan Arritt, for NBA.com
Posted Tue Mar 11, 2014 2:25 AM - Updated Tue Mar 11, 2014 2:25 AM

THE FACT: Clippers forward Blake Griffin shot 14-for-16 from the floor, the best shooting percentage with at least 16 shots since Josh Smith of the Hawks went 14-for-16 on Dec. 7, 2010, against the Nets.

THE LEAD: Blake Griffin scored 29 of his 37 points in the first half as the Clippers raced to a big before fighting off the Phoenix Suns for a 112-105 victory Monday night at Staples Center and extending their winning streak to a season-high eight games.

THE STAT: Clippers small forward Matt Barnes pitched in 13 points, tying his career high with his ninth straight game in double figures.

TURNING POINT: The Suns led for a grand total of 18 seconds early in the first quarter, fell behind by nine heading into the second and trailed by as many as 15 with 8½ minutes left in the first half before showing signs of life and scoring eight unanswered points to trim the deficit to seven. That's when Griffin and Chris Paul checked back into the game and immediately made their presence known, helping orchestrate a 13-0 run that put L.A. on top by 20 with just under four minutes left in the half. The lead ballooned to 25 in the third quarter, just enough to hold off the Suns when they whittled the deficit to four in the game's final minute.

HOT: Griffin made 14 of his first 15 shot attempts and scored 22 points in the opening quarter, a career high for any quarter. It also represented the 17th time this season that Griffin has reached double figures in the first 12 minutes. Griffin helped L.A. shoot 61.9 percent from the floor in the first quarter before finishing at 55.1 for the game. Danny Granger seems to be getting more comfortable by each game with the Clippers. He scored eight points in his first nine-minute run with the reserves, hitting a pair of 3-pointers during the key 13-0 surge in the second quarter. Granger, who was traded from the Pacers to Philadelphia just before the deadline last month, bought out by the 76ers and then picked up by the Clippers, finished with 14 points in 23 minutes. Paul pitched in 17 points and 11 assists and DeAndre Jordan finished with eight points, 17 rebounds and three blocks. The Suns finished with seven players in double figures for the first time this season, but fell to 5-1 when at least six score in double digits.

NOT: The Suns were forced to play another game without Eric Bledsoe, who hasn't suited up since they beat the Clippers in L.A. on Dec. 30. Bledsoe, who underwent arthroscopic right knee surgery in early January, could be back as soon as Wednesday against visiting Cleveland, but that didn't help things against the Clippers, who drafted Bledsoe 18th overall in 2010 and had Bledsoe for three seasons before trading him to Phoenix last summer. The Suns found themselves even more short-handed in the backcourt early on when Goran Dragic committed two fouls in the first five minutes, forcing coach Jeff Hornacek to go with Ish Smith a lot sooner than planned. Dragic, still without a basket, committed foul No. 3 less than three minutes into the second half. This time he stayed on the floor, however, and ended up scoring 12 of his team-high 23 points in the third quarter, helping the Suns trim a 25-point deficit to 11 before Barnes sank a 3 at the buzzer to push the lead back to 14 points entering the fourth.

GOOD MOVE: The Clippers have been successful jumping on teams early this season, especially at home. They took a 62-45 lead into the half against the Suns, marking the 11th time this season they've scored at least 60 points in the first half at Staples Center and L.A. has won them all.

BAD MOVE: Griffin and P.J. Tucker of the Suns were battling for rebound position on 3-point try by Barnes with about 5½ minutes left in the game when Griffin appeared to be pulled down on top of Tucker. Before Griffin could break free, Tucker appeared to connect with a blow to Griffin's jaw, drawing an angry response from Griffin. After both sides were separated, the officials reviewed the incident and tossed Tucker from the game with the Suns trailing by 14 points. Griffin was still emotional about the altercation and committed two offensive fouls over the next two minutes, fouling out and opening the door for Phoenix to make things interesting in the final minutes.

NOTABLE: The Clippers have the same 45-20 record they had after 65 games last season. ... Griffin is five rebounds shy of 3,000 for his career, which would place him with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Charles Barkley as only players to amass 6,000 points, 3,000 rebounds and 1,000 assists while shooting at least 50 percent from the floor before the end of their fourth NBA season. ... The Clippers came in tied with the Pacers for the most winning streaks of at least four games this season (six).

UP NEXT: For the Clippers, Wednesday vs. Golden State, Friday @ Utah, Sunday vs. Cleveland. For the Suns, Wednesday vs. Cleveland, Friday @ Boston, Sunday @ Toronto.
