Informed that Nico Batum’s 32 points were just three shy of his career high, Ty Lue balks: “That’s it?!”
What was his career high, he’s asked.
His answer, in jest: “32! — and I didn’t get $110 million!” – 6:33 PM

Prior to today, the Clippers were 2-104 in franchise history when allowing at least 133 points, including playoffs.

Clippers beat the Pacers 139-133. No defense at all from the pacers in this one as they concede a season high 139.
Duarte (24 on 14 shots) and Bitadze (17 on 9) had nice nights. As did LeVert, who led the way with 26. But the defense was… oof. – 6:03 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Clippers score and allow season-highs in 139-133 win against the Indiana Pacers.
32 points for Nicolas Batum, his most in more than six years. Most Clippers points since they dropped 154 on Carlisle’s Mavericks in the bubble.
Now Clippers go on road for rest of January! – 6:02 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Track meet in LA today. Clippers win 139-133 after leading the entire game. It’s the most points the Pacers allowed all season.
Nicolas Batum scored a career-high 32pts — all in the second half. LeVert had 26, Duarte had 24. Bitadze scored CH 17p, 8r.
Up next: at LAL on Wed. – 6:00 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
LeVert takes 7 seconds, leads with his elbow, and Nicolas Batum draws the offensive foul. It’s LeVert’s sixth, so he’s done after a team-high 26 points.
Clippers use their last timeout, up 135-130 with 21.7 seconds left. – 5:56 PM

Clippers call timeout, up 133-130 with 30.9 seconds left. – 5:53 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Jackson misses his first free throw in ten attempts today, and Pacers call a timeout to set up a 2-for-1 with 36.3 seconds left.
LA holding onto a 133-128 lead.

You’ve all seen some bizarre matinee games from the Clippers last few years. Add this one to it – 5:49 PM

Clippers with a season-high as a team, Nic Batum with a season high as a player. Clippers 3-point shooting has carried them all night, including Batum at 7/10. – 5:48 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Nicolas Batum has been the difference today, 7 for 9 from range and a career-high 28pts. Clippers are 18 for 33, +21.
Pacers have challenged late, getting to within seven. It’s nine with 3:09 left.
Duarte (21) and Bitadze (15) have been productive. – 5:45 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Pacers still have not located Nicolas Batum.
But in an odd twist, Clippers have repeatedly scored, and then repeatedly allowed points. Haven’t seen this many points in a Clippers game all season.
LA up 128-119 with 3:08 left. – 5:45 PM

Clippers entered today 7-0 when they score at least 116 points this season. Well let’s test it.
LA up 116-105 after Batum ends drought with another corner 3, Jackson makes 2 FTs, and Sabonis donates another bucket to Jackson. 6:45 left to play. – 5:37 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Jackson and Morris are getting a do-over from Saturday night. They enter with Pacers on 12-2 run and Clippers on another 4-minute field goal drought. – 5:33 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
Duarte having one of his best games in a while. He’s 8/10 with 19 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, and 3 steals. Pacers slowly chipping at the Clippers lead, but still down 11. Forced Ty Lue to take a timeout. – 5:29 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
The bench is really struggling with the zone, and Zubac is back in, so Ty Lue has his work cut out for him with the shooters on the bench.
Pacers have trimmed lead down to 107-96 with 9:42 left in regulation. – 5:29 PM

It’s 104-90 Clippers after 3 quarters. Pacers bench has been good and they already have 7 players in double figures, the offense isn’t the issue. They just can’t get stops so far. – 5:23 PM

Pacers playing this zone and Clippers are shooting against Rick’s team like it’s Game 7 all over again – 5:23 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
The slump is busted for Marcus Morris Sr., who is back over 20 points after four rough games.
LA leads Pacers 104-90 entering fourth quarter. Great shooting performance. Defense hasn’t really been there, but one quarter left to protect 14 points. – 5:22 PM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Clippers 104, Pacers 90 | End 3 | The Clippers eclipse 100 points for the first time in three games — they’re shooting 35 for 62, 14 for 24 from 3.
Nico Batum has helped with that: In the third quarter, he went 4-5, 3-4 from deep for 14 points. – 5:21 PM

This is a tough watch. Pacers are getting crushed by a Clippers team that failed to reach 95 points in their last three games. They have 98 with almost 17 minutes left. And lead the Pacers by 19.
I’d like to see more minutes for Lance and Goga after their good spurt in the 1Q. – 5:11 PM

A concern for Clippers: They’re fouling way too much, which is a surprise.
It was an issue after halftime in San Antonio. And it was an issue today vs Pacers in second quarter. And Spurs/Pacers are two of the worst teams in the league at getting to the line. – 4:47 PM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Clippers 68, Pacers 59 | Half | Eric Bledsoe — nine points, six assists — helping steady the Clippers late in the second quarter when Indiana was closing in.
Coffey has 14 points & Isaiah Hartenstein’s been his active self: 5 points, a rebound, two fouls all in four minutes. – 4:43 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
Nice second quarter from the Pacers but they give up a little run to end the half and trail 68-59 at the break. Clippers are 10/18 from deep.
Brissett leads the Pacers with 11 points. Flexed his value often that half with cuts and defense. – 4:40 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Ty Lue wanted that 2-for-1 but Clips didn’t push it after Washington turnover.
Got a 2-for-1 anyway because Pacers didn’t rebound and Morris hit the 3.
LA up 68-59 at halftime despite another 4-minute field goal drought. Clippers made 10-of-18 3s, 3 each from Morris/Coffey. – 4:40 PM

After conceding 40 in the first frame, Pacers have given up just 14 in the first 9 minutes of the second quarter. Complete 180 on the defensive end. Strong and aggressive in the 2nd.

Not a good defensive quarter from the Pacers. Couldn’t slow down the Clippers at all, it’s 40-27 after one. Too many fouls (6) from the Pacers on top of uncoordinated rotations made things easy for LA. – 4:11 PM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Clippers 40, Pacers 27 | End 1 | Took the Clippers until the 2:33 mark of the second quarter to get to 40 last game. Different story today. No cooling off Amir Coffey: 4-5, 3-3 from 3 for a game-high 12 (plus two rebounds and two assists). – 4:11 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Clippers have 40 first quarter points for the first time since April. They played multiple games last week where they didn’t score 40 by halftime.
LA up 40-25, making more FTs already (9/9) than they attempted for the whole game Saturday night in San Antonio. – 4:10 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Pacers allow 40 points by the Clippers in the 1Q, the most of any opponent this season to begin a game. It’s 40-27.
The urgency has lacked and the bench outplayed the starters. Brissett has 7pts. – 4:10 PM

Eric Bledsoe makes his free throws and the Clippers are 9-9 from the line already — surpassing Saturday’s eight-free-throw effort for the entire game. – 4:06 PM

Updated story on Myles Turner:
He traveled with the team out west and plans to visit a foot specialist in Los Angeles, league source told @FieldhouseFiles. Then it will be determined how long he is out.

Direct flight from Indy to LA got canceled this morning. Airline rebooked me with connecting flights, but I won’t make it to LA in time for today’s game against the Clippers. Stuck in Charlotte at the moment.

Pacers star Malcolm Brogdon was named after Malcolm X, but Martin Luther King, Jr., actually had a daily influence on him growing up in Atlanta. The Brogdon Family Foundation also announces HBCU tour for Indianapolis high school kids. #nba #pacers #mlk bit.ly/33pAizK11:10 AM
