Notebook: Clippers 118, Rockets 107

THE FACT: The Los Angeles Clippers clinched their third consecutive playoff berth by virtue of Saturday's victory over the Houston Rockets.

THE LEAD: Chris Paul did most of the heavy lifting with 30 points, 12 assists and three steals, and Jamal Crawford scored 14 of his 22 points in the second half as the Clippers overcame an early exit for All-Star Blake Griffin to defeat the injury riddled Rockets 118-107 at Toyota Center. DeAndre Jordan finished with 20 points, 12 rebounds and six blocks for L.A. (52-22), which moved two games in front of Houston (49-23) for third place in the Western Conference and completed a sweep of the season series. The Clippers were in no mood to celebrate the win or the playoff spot, however, because Griffin had to leave the game midway through the opening period with lower back spasms. The fourth-year forward is considered day-to-day and will be reevaluated Sunday. "I'm not sure how bad [Griffin's injury] is," coach Doc Rivers said. "If it's my call [whether Griffin plays], then no [he won't play]. I want it to be the trainer's call where he knows he can play."

James Harden led the Rockets with 32 points, seven boards and six assists, and Chandler Parsons contributed 28 points and nine rebounds. But their valiant efforts were not enough to prevent L.A. from winning for the seventh time in its last nine road games while halting Houston's season-high 11-game home win streak.

QUOTABLE: "[Our mental fortitude] is big. I think it's what we lacked last year. I think it's a big sign of maturity. It comes from more experience. ... We knew last year that was our weakness; we were mentally weak. I think collective focus on being mentally tough has got us a long way this year."
-- Clippers forward Matt Barnes

THE STAT: The Clippers worked their tails off throughout the game to disrupt the Rockets' high-powered offense and became the first team this season to record at least 25 assists, 10 blocks and 10 steals against Houston. The Rockets, by contrast, finished with only 14 assists, three blocks and two steals.

TURNING POINT: The teams battled back and forth through the first three quarters of this game, but Crawford helped the Clippers take control for good early in the fourth period. After an Isaiah Canaan free throw cut Houston's deficit to 88-85 in the opening minute of the fourth, Crawford responded with eight straight points to help L.A. extend its lead to double digits for the first time.

HOT: The Clippers fell into a 15-point hole early in the second quarter, but Paul pulled his team out of its funk by pouring in 17 points on 5-for-5 shooting and recording two steals over a six-minute span. After Paul concluded his scoring barrage, L.A. suddenly held a five-point advantage.

NOT: Houston had the hot hand from the perimeter early in the contest, draining five of its first eight 3-point attempts. But the Rockets cooled off considerably as the game progressed, misfiring on 15 of their final 17 attempts from beyond the arc.

QUOTABLE II: "We couldn't sustain anything offensively. They switched, and we didn't do what we had done earlier, which was attacking with the ball, and we got really stagnant. That's as bad as we've been, stagnant-wise and ball movement-wise, in a long time."
-- Houston coach Kevin McHale

BAD MOVE: Rivers had to request team security to escort reserve big man Glen Davis to the locker room during the second period after Davis got into a heated exchange with Rivers and a couple of his assistants in front of the L.A. bench. Davis' loose-lip insubordination only hurt the Clippers on a night when they had already lost a key post player in Griffin.

QUOTABLE III: "I thought [Davis] was just too emotional, and for me, if you're too emotional, I always send you back to the locker room and keep you back there until the next game. ... For me, it's all about emotional hijacks. If you have one, you're going to sit in the back."
? Doc Rivers on Davis' behavior

NOTABLE: Houston played without starting point guard Patrick Beverley, who is out indefinitely after suffering a torn meniscus in his right knee. Beverley said he plans to consult with Dr. James Andrews on Monday before determining whether surgery is necessary. ... Rockets starting center Dwight Howard also missed the contest with a left ankle strain. His status is officially day-to-day, although Howard estimated that he would be sidelined for 10 days. ... Clippers reserve forward Danny Granger sat out with a strained left hamstring. Rivers said Granger returned to L.A. to treat the injury, and the veteran wing will not be with the club for the final two contests of their five-game road trip. ... The Rockets squandered double-digit leads in each of their two home meetings with the Clippers this season. ... L.A. has won nine of 10 against the Rockets. ... The Clippers, who shot 12-for-41 from long distance, improved to 31-1 when they connect on at least nine 3-point attempts. ... Canaan set career highs in points (14), rebounds (four) and assists (three).

UP NEXT: For the Clippers: Monday @ Minnesota, Wednesday @ Phoenix, Thursday vs. Dallas. For the Rockets: Tuesday @ Brooklyn, Wednesday @ Toronto, Friday vs. Oklahoma City.
