Notebook: Clippers 112, Suns 108


Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com
Posted Thu Apr 03, 2014 2:01 AM - Updated Thu Apr 03, 2014 2:01 AM

THE FACT: The Los Angeles Clippers, the NBA's hottest team outside of San Antonio, have won four straight and 17 of 19. They are 33-10 in the calendar year 2014, second only to the Spurs' 34-9.

THE LEAD: The Los Angeles Clippers are Pacific Division champions. The Phoenix Suns, by contrast, may have seen their best shot at being the surprise qualifier for the playoffs slip away.

The Clippers moved to 54-22 after they stormed from 17 down in the third quarter to edge the Suns 112-108 Wednesday in Arizona.

The Suns slipped to 44-31, tied with Memphis and Dallas for the final two spots in the West's playoff chase. Because of tie-breakers, the Suns would be No. 9 if the season ended today.

In addition, five of the Suns' final seven games are on the road.

Blake Griffin and Darren Collison had 23 points each for the Clippers. Chris Paul shot just 6-for-17 but finished with 20 points and nine assists. Matt Barnes scored 19, and Jared Dudley had 12 key points off the bench.

The Suns had eight players in double figures, led by Marcus Morris' 16 points. Goran Dragic had 15 points and eight assists but shot just 2-for-11.

The Suns appeared energized and in control when they went on a 22-5 run to take what seemed like a decisive 91-74 lead lead late in the third quarter.

The Clippers fought back. They went on a 20-6 run, started by two Dudley free throws and capped by a Dudley 3-pointer, to cut the margin to 97-94 with 4:47 left.

Dudley hit two more free throws to give the Clippers a 105-104 lead with 2:38 left.

Then, with the Suns leading 106-105 after a short floater by Eric Bledsoe, Paul found himself with the ball and the shot clock winding down.

Paul hoisted up a 32-footer that found the bottom of the net to give the Clippers a 108-106 lead with 1:48 left. A steal by Barnes of a Channing Frye pass eventually led to a putback by Griffin.

The Clippers, closing out a five-game road trip, had their second straight division title and second in their history.

Griffin, a game-time decision because of back spasms, started. Nothing appeared wrong with his back when he leaped high for a spectacular slam on a follow shot late in the first half.

QUOTABLE: "They can go small, and they can go big. They have both options. That's why they're a great team."
-- Suns coach Jeff Hornacek

THE STAT: The Suns scored only four points in the final 3:49.

TURNING POINT: Paul's 32-footer.

QUOTABLE II: "It actually felt good when it left my hand. I hit one like that from that spot here a long time ago, when I played for the Hornets."
-- Chris Paul on his big shot

QUOTABLE III: "It's nice. But it doesn't really say much. We won the division title last year and lost in the first round."
-- Chris Paul

QUOTABLE IV: "We are a resilient team. We have goals this year."
-- Matt Barnes

QUOTABLE V: "We believe we can win even when things are going badly for us."
-- Clippers coach Doc Rivers

QUOTABLE VI: "If we don't make the playoffs, for sure we are going to look back and say, 'Why did you lose against the Lakers?' Then we had this game almost in our pockets. But now is not the time to think like that."
-- Goran Dragic

HOT: The Clippers shot 27-for-30 from the free-throw line.

NOT: Dragic shot 0-for-5 on 3-pointers.

NOTABLE: Dragic has the numbers for a spot on the all-NBA first team. He is averaging 20.5 points while shooting 51 percewnt from the floor and 42 percent on 3-pointers. The last guard to do so was Drazen Petrovic, who averaged 22.3 points, 52 percent shooting and 45 percent on 3-pointers back in 1992-93. Since '92-93, the only players to do this were Dirk Nowitzki (2006-07), Kevin Durant (2012-13) and LeBron James (2012-13). The only Suns' player to do this was Hornacek (20.1, 51 and 44) in 1991-92 ... The Suns are 19-0 when when shooting at least 50 percent from the floor. They shot 46 percent vs. the Clippers...The Suns are tied for first in the NBA with 9.5 3-point makes per game. They are No. 1 in fast-break points with 18.8 per game while the Clippers are No. 2 with 18.5 ... Markieff Morris came into the game with 1,008 points off the bench, by far the most of any NBA reserve. Next was Vince Carter with 896 ... The Suns are 13-0 when both Dragic and Bledsoe score 16 points in a game. In this game, Dragic had 15 and Bledsoe 14 ... With three steals, Paul now has at least three in eight straight games. Nobody has done this since Allen Iverson of Denver did so in eight straight in 2007-08.

UP NEXT: For the Clippers, Thursday vs. Dallas, Sunday vs. L.A. Lakers and Wed. April 9 vs. Oklahoma City. For the Suns, Friday @ Portland, Sunday vs. Oklahoma City and Wed. April 9 @ New Orleans.
