Clippers Clip Nets

Brooklyn had no answer for Clippers guard Chris Paul and his pick-and-rolls in the second half. Paul scored 17 of his game-high 29 points to lead Los Angeles to a 101-95 win over the Nets at the Staples Center Saturday night. Brooklyn held its own against one of the Western conference’s best teams. Up to the closing seconds in regulation, the game was in doubt for the Clippers. After a timeout, Deron Williams hit a 3-pointer to cut the deficit to 99-95 with less than a minute to play in the fourth quarter. But that was the closest Brooklyn got because the Clippers iced the game at the free throw line. Williams and Lopez each scored 18 in the loss for the Nets, who will look to rebound when they take on the lowly Suns in Phoenix on Sunday.
