Notebook: Thunder 118, Clippers 112


Dan Arritt, for NBA.com
Posted Sat May 10, 2014 2:32 AM - Updated Sat May 10, 2014 2:32 AM

THE FACT: The Clippers fell to 35-1 at home this season when holding a lead heading into the fourth quarter.

THE LEAD: The 1-2 combinations for the Thunder and Clippers pretty much cancelled each other out with superior performances Friday night in Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinal, requiring a third party to step up and steal a victory. That player turned out to be Oklahoma City power forward Serge Ibaka, who overcame early and repetitive foul trouble to finish with 20 points on 9-for-10 shooting, just enough to lift the Thunder to a 118-112 victory at Staples Center and provide them a 2-1 series edge after they dropped the opener earlier in the week.

QUOTABLE: "That's what I love about Serge Ibaka, he competes. He plays with every ounce of fiber he has for his team."
-- Thunder coach Scott Brooks

THE STAT: The Thunder scored 52 points in the paint, giving them 100 in the last two games.

TURNING POINT: The Clippers ended the third quarter on an 8-0 run to take a 90-86 lead into the fourth, but an 8-2 run by Oklahoma City to start the quarter gave them back the lead. L.A. went ahead one last time just before the midway point of the fourth quarter, but Jamal Crawford missed three straight field goals for L.A. and Chris Paul missed the second of two free throws, allowing the Thunder to surge back ahead 106-101 with four minutes left and match their biggest lead of the game. Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook hit a back-breaking 3-pointer with 2:09 on the clock to extend the lead back to four and the Clippers then missed three consecutive outside shots, forcing them to foul with 22 seconds left. Reggie Jackson stepped to the line and made both free throws to push the lead eight, the biggest advantage for either team through that point of the game.

HOT: The Thunder shot 55.7 percent from the floor, including 61.1 in the final quarter when they outscored the Clippers, 32-22. Oklahoma City small forward Kevin Durant, fresh off winning the NBA Most Valuable Player award, scored 34 points on 14-for-24 shooting while also contributing eight rebounds and six assists. Westbrook also brought his A-game, totaling 23 points, eight rebounds and 13 assists. Paul and Blake Griffin countered with big-time performances for L.A., as Griffin finished with 34 points on 13-for-22 from the field and Paul had 21 points, 16 assists and no turnovers, giving him two of the three playoff performances of at least 15 assists with no turnovers since he joined the league.

NOT: Except for Paul, the Clippers received little help from the backcourt. Starting shooting guard J.J. Redick missed his first five shots before making his only basket four seconds left and they game already decided. Crawford took 18 shots (two more than Paul) and made just six, while Darren Collison missed all four of his field goal attempts and went scoreless. If there's a knock on Paul, it has been his free-throw shooting in this postseason. He missed two more in Game 3 and is now 29-for-39 (74.3) in the playoffs, well off the 85.5 clip he posted during the regular season. Thunder shooting guard Thabo Sefolosha was a no-show after scoring 14 points in Game 2. He also fell into early foul trouble but, unlike Ibaka, he didn't rebound, finishing with one point in 15 minutes.

GOOD MOVE: Thunder reserve wing Caron Butler spent the last two season with the Clippers before he was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in three-team deal that brought Redick to L.A.. The Clippers obviously thought the 34-year-old Butler was on the downside of his career, but he showed he still has a lot left, scoring nine of his 14 points in the decisive fourth quarter and doing a solid job defensively as well.

QUOTABLE II: "When Caron was open, we found him on time, on target immediately."
-- Scott Brooks

BAD MOVE: Jackson is a big reason why the Thunder have regained home-court advantage for this series. He scored another 14 points off the bench in Game 3, but he's also why Oklahoma City fell behind at the end of the third quarter. He was whistled for fouling Paul on a 3-point attempt and let the nearest official know he wasn't happy about it, resulting in a technical foul. Crawford made the technical and Paul sank two of the three free throws to put the Clippers ahead 87-86 with 30 seconds left in the quarter.

NOTABLE: The Thunder are 1-0 in a best-of-seven series when leading 2-1, the Clippers are 0-4 when trailing 2-1. ... The Thunder won Game 3 on the road for the first time in five tries when the series is tied 1-1. ... Ibaka is shooting 68 percent from the floor against the Clippers this season.

UP NEXT: Game 4, Sunday @ Los Angeles, Game 5, Tuesday @ Oklahoma City, Game 6 (if necessary), Thursday @ Los Angeles.
