Clippers catch Pacers but can’t pass them in 105-100 loss

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Meanwhile, the Clippers were without Redick, their energizer guard who is now out 6-8 weeks with a broken bone and torn ligament in his right hand.And the Pacers brought the league’s best record to a West Coast road trip and emerged with a 16-1 record behind George, who had 27 points, and David West, who had 24 points and 12 rebounds. Center Roy Hibbert added 19 points and eight rebounds.“They came in with a purpose,” Rivers said of the Pacers. “This was their first game on the West Coast trip and you could see their seriousness at the beginning of the game. They were locked in and we were not.”Jamal Crawford came off the bench to lead the Clippers with 20 points. Paul played 34 minutes and had 17 points and 10 assists, Blake Griffin had 16 points and 12 rebounds, and the bench provided 44 points and defensive energy.Yet the Clippers had only enough to catch the Pacers, not pass them.“I didn’t think we did a good job of competing in the first half,” Griffin said. “Our second team did compete in the first half, in the second quarter they did a great job.”Indiana jumped out to an 11-point lead, but the Clippers caught and passed them to take a 41-40 lead in the second quarter. That lasted about 20 seconds, or as long as it took for George to hit a 3-pointer.West’s jumper at the halftime buzzer after an offensive rebound gave the Pacers a 53-47 lead and served as a bit of an omen of what was to come.“It was a hard-fought game,” Crawford said. “A play here, a play there could change the complexion of the game. We got off to a slow start for whatever reason and then we got it going in the second quarter. In the third quarter we started a little bit slow and got it going in the fourth.Willie Green got the start in Redick’s place but scored only two points in 15 minutes. When the Clippers were on the comeback trail in the final period, Crawford joined the four starters.“It’s going to take some getting used to,” Crawford said of playing without Redick, who was averaging 15.8 points. “Obviously, J.J. has been having a great season. I said time and time again he is one of the better starting two-guards in the league and we have a flow within that starting unit.”The Clippers will now embark on a seven-game road trip back east that begins Wednesday in Atlanta.“We can learn a lot about ourselves, how we approach each game, not thinking about the next one, always thinking about the first one,” Paul said. “I always say you can’t win ‘em all without winning the first one.” It was the energy of the reserves that brought the Clippers back from a 14-point deficit. It was Jamal Crawford denying a pass to Indiana’s Paul George, coming up with the steal and getting the ball ahead to Darren Collison for a dunk to tie the game at 94-94 with 4 1/2 minutes left.Yet they gave the lead back immediately and were fighting back again until a shot by Paul went in and out with 31.9 seconds left. But the Clippers couldn’t pull down a rebound and were twice forced to foul, and the Pacers put the game away at the free-throw line.“I was mad at myself that I missed two shots,” Paul said. “I try to pride myself on end-of-game situations, knowing the time to score and put yourself in a position to win. I know if I make one those shots, a seven-second differential in the game clock, we could have gotten a stop and had a chance to win the game.“I was just disgusted with myself because I got the shot that I wanted.”Paul missed Friday night’s game at Sacramento with a hamstring strain and got some extra ice treatment on the leg during the fourth quarter, but he said he was fine.center_img Chris Paul returned to the lineup, but the Clippers had to begin life without J.J. Redick for awhile Sunday. They also appeared to wait for a while to join the regularly scheduled game that was already in progress.The Clippers recovered from a slow start but couldn’t hit the one shot or grab the one rebound that could have made the difference Sunday in a 105-100 loss to the Indiana Pacers.“Well, we have to compete for 48 minutes,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “I thought in the second half we joined the game, and then it was a game.”last_img read more
