OKC defeat the Clippers in game one of doubleheader from LA

OKC Thunder take care of the LA Clippers, 108 – 104.  Pretty exciting game.  OKC had a 19 point lead at one point, but down the stretch things got very tight.  Got a bit chippy, flagrant two foul on Ibaka, Blake Griffin making one of two free throws and then fouled out with just under a minute.  Hey, did I mention Billy Crystal was in the house.  Wonder if he is hanging around for the Lakers game against the Hawks, or just there for the Clippers game?  Is LA still a Lakers town?  I don’t care what the teams’ records are, I say yes!  LA is still all about the Lakers.

OK, back to the OKC – Clippers game, Westbrook led OCK with 29 points, 6 rebounds, and 10 assists.  For the Clippers in the point guard battle, Chris Paul had 26 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists.  Blake Criffin had 20 points along with Jamal Crawford (again, why did the Hawks let him go?).  The Thunder win all three games in this year’s series with the Clippers.

Next up at the Staples Center at 9:30 pm EST, Lakers host the Atlanta Hawks.  Another must win game for “the” team from LA.
