Los Angeles Clippers, 105-100, at the Staples Center.

Roy Hibbert netted 19 points, while George Hill scored 11 for Indiana, which
handed the Clippers just their second home loss of the season.

Jamal Crawford led six LA players in double-figures with 20 points off the
bench and Chris Paul finished with 17 points and 10 assists in the setback.

process, and was fouled. He made the three free throws to pull Los Angeles
within four, 91-87.

The Clippers tied the game 94-94, but Indiana answered right back with a
three-point play from Hill. LA had a chance to tie the game trailing 102-100,
