Clippers are shooting 28.6% from the field (8/28) and 18.2% (2/11) from three.

Robert Morales

Clippers down 31-21 with 7:49 left in second. @Chris Paul and @Blake Griffin have two points apiece #CLIPPERSvSPURS

Ben Bolch

Jamal Crawford is 0/5 and Austin Rivers 1/4 shooting.

Paul Garcia

Duncan, Parker, Diaw to check in. Crawford awarded in the act of shooting, will have 3 free throws.

Quixem Ramirez

The Spurs are whipping the ball around everywhere, getting wide open looks and just missing. Clippers just hanging on for dear life.

Jeff McDonald

Unlike almost everybody else on earth, Bonner's not as good from the corners as he is from the wings.

Ben Bolch

Blake Griffin's jersey is soaked in sweat and he's doubled over panting.

Mike Monroe

Wow, Matt Bonner has missed two unguarded corner 3s

Buddy Grizzard

Me and the dude. http://t.co/Af41NatN9C

Brad Turner

Clips down to 28.6% shooting

Dan McCarney

Spurs in Yakety Sax mode these last few possessions. Fortunately for them, Clippers not taking advantage.

Quixem Ramirez

The Clippers have 6-7 reliable players. The Spurs have 9-10. That has become glaringly obvious through three games.

Ben Bolch

Clippers have made 8/28 shots and Chris Paul is walking toward Doc Rivers trying to get back in game.

Eric Smith

Pierce drains a 3pt to put the wiz up 84-80 with 6:37 to go. #rtz

Eric Koreen

They should put a statue of Paul Pierce hitting a 3 in front of the ACC.

Jorge Castillo

Pierce enters game at the 4. 10 seconds later, he hits a 3. 84-80, Wizards.

Josh Lewenberg

Paul Pierce has large Greivises

Rashad Mobley

DeRozan is awake again and so is Pierce who STILL should be getting the ball more given the way he's shooting in his limited looks.

Tim Cato

Charlie V has a posse at his locker.

Eric Smith

81-80 wiz with 6:49 to go. #Rtz

Ben Standig

Just discussing with @Todd_Dybas that Pierce should enter seeing as Raps have one big out there. Pierce enters and hits a 3.

Payal Doshi

#AngryDeMar is playing with a purpose in the 4th quarter. #rtz

Tony Jones

Is the first round of this years postseason gonna have a single series get to a game 6?

Paul Garcia

Tiago was unable to move the large baby Glen Davis.

Eric Pincus

Reg season over so John Salmons' $ on Atlanta Hawks' books is set off by $592k - $1 mil down to $408k @BBallInsiders basketballinsiders.com/atlanta-hawks-…

Ben Bolch

At least Doc Rivers is still loose even if his team isn't.

Amin Elhassan

That boy Book is watching the wrong game twitter.com/35_Fitz/status…

Quixem Ramirez

I’ll allow it. RT @TexSR_Chase: The screaming noise R2D2 makes is what you hear from opponents when they play the Spurs

Sam Amick

As venues go, AT&T is up there when it comes to the fun factor. Things have gone pretty well for these fans of late, thus the raucous feel

Mike Prada

Alright, let’s get Pierce in for Drew and spread them out.

Ben Bolch

Fan tells Doc Rivers they're going to T him up and Doc responds, "Wait until the fourth quarter. It's too early."

Scott Cacciola

The only thing more enjoyable than the Spurs' ball movement is their H-E-B commercials.

Arash Markazi

Everyone asks what will the Clippers do if they get knocked out early again. Adding a couple of reserves that can play isn't a bad start.

Ben Bolch

Clippers get blown out in this game and the mental burden of a collapse plus a blowout will be hard to overcome.

Paul Garcia

Ime and Tim Duncan running that last timeout circle at the end before the players headed back to the court.

Nate Taylor

Here's the story from tonight's game as #FAU losses lopsided series opener to Old Dominion: fw.to/0mGNKhh

Calvin Watkins

Corey Brewer: When u have the MVP on your team it makes it easy.

Josh Lewenberg

Where were you when Drew Gooden invented time travel?

Michael Scotto

James Harden had a playoff career-high 42 points & became the 1st Rockets player with 40+ point in the playoffs since Tracy McGrady in 2008.

Dan McCarney

Fans really bringing it tonight at the AT&T. Respect.

Mike Monroe

Matt Bonner manned up on DeAndre Jordan drive and forced a miss to start break for #Spurs and 3-pointer from @Patrick Mills; 31-19 SAS lead

Ben Standig

Dreeeeeeew Gooden with a driving scoop layup like hes Dr. J or something.

Jonathan Feigen

Carlisle with a fine rant about officiating. Said Howard "is throwing people around. This series has to be played within the rules."

Ben Bolch

The most efficient offense in the NBA during the regular season has 19 points 13 1/2 minutes into this game.

Jorge Castillo

DeRozan hit with the tech after he pushed Porter, who blocked his shot then said something.

Josh Newman

I'll be cashing in the favor or three that @rydunleavy owes me in due time. Hope the wedding is a good time. app.com/story/sports/c…

Patty Mills' 3-ball gives Spurs a 31-19 lead over Clippers early 2nd #CLIPPERSvSPURS

Jeff Zillgitt

Interesting note from Wizards PR staff: Wizards have never been up 3-0 in a series in franchise history.

Brad Turner

Doc Rivers yelling, glaring at officials after no call on Big Baby. Meanwhile, Patty Mills drilled a 3-pointer for a 31-19 Spurs lead

Paul Garcia

Like the numbers project, the Spurs' outside shots were bound to fall at home and it's showing early.

Arash Markazi

Patty Mills for three and Doc calls a quick timeout and is yelling at officials. Spurs 31, Clippers 19 with 10:33 left in the 2nd quarter.

Tim Cato

Rick Carlisle very critical of refs. "This series has to be played within the rules."

David Aldridge

If Patty Mills is back in form…look out, West.

Jeff McDonald

Doc is PISSED at the no call on Big Baby drive. Went all the way out at the top of the key at this stoppage to plead his case.

Ben Standig

Wiz often feed Gortat early, but then his shot attempts dry up. Not tonight. Went 5 of 6 in 1Q. Now 10 of 13 for 22 points. #FeedTheMachine

Dan McCarney

Vintage Patrick Thrills PUTIT gives Spurs a 31-19 lead, drawing a timeout from the Clippers w/ 10:33 left in the 2nd Q.

Chris Miller

Otto never said a word just looked at DeRozan after blocking his shot. #nonverbaltrashtalk

Paul Garcia

Now Patrick drills the PUJIT - Doc timeout. Spurs take a 12 point lead once more. SA shooting 57%, 5/10 from 3PT.

Robert Morales

DPOY Kawhi Leonard scores 10 points in first quarter for Spurs insidesocal.com/clippers/2015/… #CLIPPERSvSPURS

Ben Bolch

Patty Mills at it again, makes a three-pointer to give Spurs a 31-19 lead over Clippers.

Quixem Ramirez

SPURS MACHINE ACTIVATED BEEP BOOP BOOP BEEP.

Tim Cato

Rick Carlisle said the play sticking in his head was to start the fourth where Dwight threw Devin. "The officials have to get that together"

Paul Garcia

Matt Bonner gets an open three - drills it. @MichaelErlerSBN called it when Bonner checked in.

Quixem Ramirez

Matt Bonner vs. Hedo Turkoglu is must watch television. Cannot take my eyes off the matchup.

Zac Boyer

The Rangers have defeated the Penguins in overtime to win the series. They'll await the Capitals/Islanders winner.

Alan Hahn

One of the most competitive 5 game series I've ever seen in a best of seven. Wow. #NYRvsPIT

Mark Montieth

Don't understand shooters who pull hand back when they release the ball instead of following through. Doesn't look as cool as they think.

Darren Wolfson

Rangers win in OT. 2 p.m. on Sunday very much in play. #mnwild

Eric Smith

79-74 wiz with 8:58 to play. Wiz on a 7-1 run. #RTZ

Jeff McDonald

Manu and Marco did not play much together during the regular season. Out of sync there.

Ben Bolch

Spurs are so good at ball movement that Manu Ginobili tried to get the crowd involved.

Ryan Wolstat

Wizards still punking Raptors. Otto Porter has been a destroyer. Finally DeRozan pushes back. Still no Hayes or J Johnson, toughest Raptors.

Dan McCarney

Vapor trails as Bonner lumbers up court...

Ben Standig

Otto talking junk after blocking DeRozan. Wow.

Ben Bolch

Clippers starting second quarter with four reserves plus J.J. Redick.

Paul Garcia

He's in uniform but Pop's bringing Bonner and Splitter in to start 2Q. twitter.com/avelarde2/stat…

Jeff Zillgitt

Raptors made seven of their first 10 threes. Law of averages. Haven't made one since. Now, 7-for-18 on threes.

Josh Newman

Rutgers spring practice is over and while there is no starting QB, Chris Laviano is in position to be it. Main: on.app.com/1z2T4qM

Big problem for Clippers in the first quarter: Chris Paul and Blake Griffin had two turnovers each.

Quixem Ramirez

What RT @totalfubarbrooo: *puts my legs up by my head and farts* yaasssssss

Ben Standig

No free chicken. At least Wizards are winning.

Ohm Youngmisuk

John Wall once told me he never worked on his trademark spin move. He says it's all instinct

Josh Lewenberg

Given the way this series has unfolded, I'm actually more surprised by the absence of Chuck Hayes than James Johnson.

Paul Garcia

I thought it was rude that when Austin Rivers checked in, Boris Diaw played full court defense on him to deny him the ball.

Arash Markazi

Spurs 25, Clippers 16 at the end of the 1st quarter. Kawhi Leonard with 10 points, J.J. Redick with 7 points.

Eric Smith

TOR took a 73-72 lead. Wall wiped that out with a wild lay up and one (FT). Beal moments later hits a jumper. Wiz 77-73 w/ 9:35 left #RTZ

Brad Turner

Spurs shooting 52.4%. Kawhi Leonard has 10 points. Clippers shooting 33.3%. Blake Griffin hasn't scored, 0/2

Jeff McDonald

Ask TP how many times in his life he's heard: "Not my tempo." twitter.com/danmccarneySAE…

Paul Garcia

Spurs' defense held Clippers to 33% shooting with 4 turnovers. Blake 0 points, Paul 2 points, Redick 7 points.

Tony Jones

David Hardisty

James Harden's clutch stepback jumper with 12.7 ticks left that proved to be the game-winner. bit.ly/1dcgIHg

Ryan Wolstat

Lowry gestures to arm three times, telling ref he got fouled.

Ben Bolch

Spurs lead Clippers, 25-16, after a first quarter that couldn't have gone much worse for Clips. Spurs shooting 52.4% to Clips' 33.3%.

Paul Garcia

1Q: Spurs 25, Clippers 16. SA shoots 52$, Kawhi 10 points on 4/5 shooting. SA just 1 TO with 6 ast on 11 FGM.

Dan McCarney

End of 1, Spurs up 25-16. Leonard with 10 points, Green 5. Spurs have 6 assists on 11 buckets, shooting 52.4 pct. Clips, 33.3 pct.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs up 25-16 after 1Q. Fairly locked in on both ends so far.

Buddy Grizzard

That was ridiculous John Wall.

Brad Turner

Clippers trail Spurs 25-16 after one quarter

Dan Woike

Clippers down 25-16 after 1, and they're fortunate it's not worse.

Quixem Ramirez

End of first quarter: Spurs 25, Clippers 16. Kawhi has 10 points.

Calvin Watkins

McHale also said Howard and Harden had yeoman efforts.

Dan McCarney

Also, Bonner finally saw "Whiplash," loved it. Said it did not give him Popovich flashbacks.

Eric Koreen

Lowry way short on 3. Wall coast-to-coast. Says it all about the PG battle this series.

Mike Richman

However, if both Atlanta and Washington sweep their opening round series, then Portland-Memphis Game 5 jumps up to 5 p.m. Pacific on Wed.

Paul Garcia

Also, first minutes for Jones.

Jeff McDonald

Home teams have combined for zero FTAs in the first quarter of the past two games of this series.

Quixem Ramirez

BREAKING: Kawhi Leonard missed a shot.

Calvin Watkins

McHale said the Rockets wouldn't be where they are without Josh Smith and Corey Brewer.

John Mitchell

Kevin Rice comes out from behind goal for a big goal, giving Syracuse a 9-8 lead with 1:48 left in the game.

Jenny Dial Creech

McHale: "I had a lot of faith that our guys would find a way to get back in the game."

Josh Lewenberg

Lowry and/or DeRozan have played every second of this series, if I'm not mistaking.

Calvin Watkins

Kevin McHale on emotions with. Josh Smith: I'm happy for him.

Dan McCarney

Teasing Bonner before the game about his tights. "It's for my calf." Ginobili chimes in: "And for speed."

Ryan Wolstat

Lowry finally making first trip to the free throw line. Is 3-for-15 from field. Mostly bad jumpers.

Rashad Mobley

The ball has to get out of Wall's hands much quicker. The Wizards are starting to get predictable on offense again.

Paul Garcia

the Spurs have 6 assists on 11 makes, shooting 58%. Ball zipping and moving all over the place, exploiting mismatches early.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors had 14 buckets in the 1st quarter, 15 in the 2nd and 3rd quarters combined

Ben Bolch

Clippers seem to have lost their focus as if suffering from a major Game 2 hangover.

Quixem Ramirez

Kawhi has 10 points in the first quarter. He has not missed a shot. Ho-hum.

Robert Morales

3-ball by DPOY Kawhi Leonard gives Spurs a 25-13 lead over Clippers late 1st. The AT&T Center in San Antone is rockin' #CLIPPERSvSPURS

Jeff McDonald

Post-up mismatches galore. Clips have to double. Spurs just killing them off that.

Jeff Zillgitt

End 3: Wizards 72, Raptors 70. Season on line for Raptors. Because you have may read - once or twice - teams down 3-0 are 0-110 in series.

Brad Turner

Kawhi Leonard hits 3, gives Spurs a 25-13 lead over Clippers with 2:05 left in 1st. Leonard 4/4 from field, 2/2 on 3s

Dan Woike

Really poor performance from the Clippers here -- look way out of sorts on both ends, down 25-13.

Paul Garcia

Duncan finds Kawhi open for three. The Spurs have their largest lead of the game - 12 points. Kawhi 10 points, Diaw/Parker/Green 13 pts.

Amin Elhassan

Clippers defense, familiar problems. Any thing that requires a tertiary rotation is basically going to beat them

John Schuhmann

Shots between the restricted area & 3-point line, through 3 quarters... TOR: 9-for-36 WAS: 5-for-17

Ben Bolch

Kawhi Leonard's second three-pointer puts Spurs up, 25-13, on Clippers. Leonard made all four shots so far.

Dan McCarney

DPOY Kawhi Leonard is also your leading scorer with 10 points after knocking down spot-up 3 from Duncan's kickout. Spurs up 25-13.

Ben Standig

Wizards bench with 14 points. The real note here is that Raps reserve with 11. Toronto has lots more firepower off the bench.

Mike Prada

Feel like the Wizards have missed shots they often make. Not terribly concerned. Maybe I should be

Diamond Leung

Potential Game 5 at Oracle Arena is either a 6 pm or 7 pm start.

Jeff McDonald

*Apparently* Redick is one of the best first-quarter scorers/possession in the league. Part of why Kawhi starts on him.

Paul Garcia

Manu, Patrick to check in soon.

Paul Garcia

Perfect timing by Diaw. Posted Redick, waited until Kawhi's defender got off enough, then hit Kawhi for the open three.

Dan Woike

Redick with 7 points in the 1st is good news. The rest of the Clippers having 6 is not.

Jason Jackson

No objection! It ain't easy bein' green.. RT @Phinattic: @Jason Jackson you're really #1 over your body of work but Kermit is just too classic

Ben Bolch

Complete failure to box out Boris Diaw costs Clippers two points.

Dwain Price

Harden was 15 of 24 from the field, including 5 of 7 on 3s and 7 of 7 on FTs. He also had 9 assists, 5 rebounds and 5 turnovers.

Paul Garcia

Diaw checks in for Tiago.

Paul Garcia

Since their 11-2 surge, the Spurs' following possessions have gone like this: Miss Miss Turnover Duncan make Timeout

Dwain Price

#Rockets shot 51.6% and made 13 of 24 3s. Houston won rebound battle 46-43, and committed 14 turnovers.

Chris Fedor

The first round of the NBA Playoffs seems like it will be over quickly. Bummer. Was hoping for more competition.

Clippers were down 11-2 to Spurs, but have done well to come back to trail by just 13-8 midway through 1st in San Antone #CLIPPERSvSPURS

John Schuhmann

Both halves, Vasquez & Williams have come in together, with one of the starting guards staying on the floor.

Tas Melas

Houston turning Dwight Howard in to primarily a pick-and-roll man has been overlooked in round 1, but damn, is it effective. Hope it stays.

Eric Koreen

not particularly close RT @ByChrisBlack: Amir Johnson has been the best Raptor tonight.

Dwain Price

Harden led the #Rockets with 42 pts, Josh had 18, Brewer 15, Ariza and Howard 13 each, and Jones 12. Howard had 26 rebounds.

Kevin Pelton

Per @bball_ref, Dallas' 128 points are the most for a losing team in a non-overtime playoff game since May 4, 1994: bit.ly/1dceWGm

Dan McCarney

Timeout, 5:57 left in 1st, Spurs up 13-8. Home is good for what ails their offense; shooting 55 percent w/ 1 TO.

Jeff Wade

Well....I'm gutted

Eric Smith

18-8 run for the #raptors. TOR up 1, q3. 1:44. #RTZ

Eric Koreen

But, seriously: Amir's slid into the right places on a few possessions, and DeMar DeRozan has found him. Credit.

Josh Lewenberg

Double-double for Amir (10 points, 12 rebounds) in his return to starting lineup. Raptors regain a 68-67 lead (somehow). 1:44 left in 3rd

Mike Prada

Wizards’ offense turning back into a pumpkin

Ben Standig

You know how everyone wants Beal to shoot more 3's? Of his 11 attempts, nine from beyond the arc.

Jorge Castillo

Raptors take the lead, 68-67.

John Mitchell

scratc that. All even at 8-8 following another Tutton goal.

Stefan Bondy

NYCFC is all types of a terrible team right now.

Jeff Caplan

Yeah I know Monta scored a ton but still trust Dirk.

Dwain Price

Dirk and Monta scored 34 each, Aminu had 15, Barea 11 and Devin 10.

Eric Koreen

Amir Johnson gives the Raptors the lead. There's no quit in this team!

Howard Chen

Wow. Monta's made so many big shots against the #Rockets... MASSIVE sigh of relief there. Big, big win to hang in for the W.

Jimmy Spencer

Credit Ellis for being so confident there with that bad miss. He crushed it tonight though, so I get it.

Dwain Price

No team in NBA history has rallied from an 0-3 hole to win a best-of-seven series.

Royce Young

Rockets beat Mavericks 130-128. Houston takes a 3-0 lead in the series. 42 points, nine assists, five rebounds for James Harden.

Michael Lee

Drew Gooden really likes this end of the basket. Now he's tipping in shots for #raptors

Alan Hahn

The worst possible shot by a defended Nowitzki is still a far better shot than what Ellis offered there. Mavs now down 0-3 in series.

Earl K. Sneed

Ellis misses at the buzzer and the @Dallas Mavericks fall into an 0-3 hole after a 130-128 loss. 34 pts apiece for Dirk and Monta. 42 for Harden.

Calvin Watkins

Kevin McHale grabs Josh Smith by the back of his jersey and almost kisses him on the cheek at midcourt. Plenty of emotion there.

John Mitchell

Chad Tutton goal draws Tar Heels to within 8-7 of Syracuse. Just under 12 mins to play in the fourth.

Tim MacMahon

Final: Rockets 130, Mavs 128. Monta Ellis' J hits nothing but glass at buzzer. Dirk 34-8-4 Monta 34-9 Harden 42-9-5 Dwight 13-26

Jeff Caplan

Dirk has to shoot that. That's crap.

Dwain Price

It's a final: #Rockets 130, #Mavs 128. Rockets lead best-of-seven series 3-0.

Dan Woike

Clippers remember dunks are easy.

Calvin Watkins

Houston wins, 130-128. Josh Smith defends Monta Ellis' last second jumper that misses everything. It's 3-0. Have a nice evening.

Jonathan Feigen

Ellis no good from 20 feet. Rockets 130, Mavericks 128. Rockets up 3-0. Teams down 3-0 in the NBA playoffs have won 0 of 110 series.

Arash Markazi

Spurs 11, Clippers 2 with 7:55 left in the 1st quarter. The Spurs are doing whatever they want at the moment.

Tim Cato

And that's how it ends.

Michael Dugat

Welp. Not a good shot.

Jenny Dial Creech

Ellis missed a shot at the buzzer and Houston wins 130-128 to go up 3-0 in the series. What.A.Game!!

David Hardisty

FINAL: Rockets 130, Mavs 128. Harden (42p), Howard (26r) huge. Houston took Dallas' best shot -- still won. They go for the sweep on Sunday.

Dan Woike

#Clippers have missed 5 shots and turned it over twice to start the game

Jimmy Spencer

Well … that shut me up. (But seriously, I never like that strategy)

Ben Bolch

Backdoor layup for Danny Green gives Spurs 11-2 lead over Clippers.

Paul Garcia

Green goes back door on JJ, solid pass from Tiago. SA 11-2 lead.

Jeff McDonald

If I wanted to get all hot-takey with it: It's going to be really hard for Clips to beat the Spurs team that plays in the AT&T Center.

Calvin Watkins

Tall lineup on the floor for Houston.

Jimmy Spencer

Monta Ellis made a ridiculously tough shot — but it’s a bad call. Don’t trade “ridiculously tough” + time for free throws. Makes no sense.

Ben Standig

DeRozan makes a shot, in comes the DeRozan stopper.

Paul Garcia

9-2 run for Spurs, as Kawhi drills the mid-range with seperation from Blake. Also, 2 LAC TOs.

Dwain Price

Brewer makes 1 of 2 FTs. #Mavs down 130-128 with 6.7 seconds left.

Jonathan Feigen

Brewer hits 1 of 2. Rockets up two, 6.8 seconds left. Amazing game.

David Hardisty

Corey Brewer makes just 1-2 free throws. Rockets up just two, 6.8 sec left. Timeout Dallas.

Jenny Dial Creech

Brewer missed a free throw and it’s a 2 point game. Mavs have the ball and 6.8 seconds on the clock….

Dan Woike

Tony Parker is the only Spur missing shots

Jeff McDonald

Best I can tell, Parker has opening assignment on CP. Early possessions started so quick, Spurs were picking up whoever.

Eric Koreen

Ross gets rebound, taps backboard with ball. I can't make this stuff up.

Amin Elhassan

Somewhere @NateDuncanNBA is getting ready to tweet his "Quick 2s are actually bad" link!

Ben Standig

That's DeRozan's first basket since 1:56 left in the 1Q. Had missed 10 straight.

Earl K. Sneed

Monta Ellis scores with 8.5 left, and then fouls Corey Brewer with 7.0 left. #DALvsHOU

Two nights, two big shots late in the 4th by the top two MVP candidates. I'd say they represented both styles but Harden didn't get fouled.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden with the jumper he used at the buzzer in Phoenix. Rockets up 3, 12.7 seconds left.

Calvin Watkins

James Harden doing what MVPs do. A step-back jumper over taller defender. Rockets up, 129-126 with 12.7 seconds left.

Dwain Price

When Howard comes up to set the screen, Ellis shoulda trucked him. Run right thru his chest to force the non-intentional foul call

Green draws the Paul assignment early.

Dirk is still so good. Guys like him, Tim Duncan just continue to impress after all these years. Love seeing it.

Dwain Price

If Dirk would have made the 3, it could have been a 4pp -- like Larry Johnson back in the day. #grandmama

Eric Koreen

The problem isn't effort. They're trying. It's discipline. And, well, talent.

Tim MacMahon

34-8-4 for Dirk. Win or lose, Mavs fans should savor this performance. You don't know how much more playoff greatness he has left in him.

Ryan Wolstat

Late T, but right call. Ross gets technical after all. At least he showed a pulse.
