J.J. Redick added 20 points, including three 3-pointers and all five of his free throws for the Clippers, who shot 54 percent for the game. Blake Griffin just missed a triple-double with 13 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists.
Paul made 8 of 10 field goals, 3 of 4 free throws and had eight assists and six rebounds for the Clippers in a game featuring the NBA’s two top-ranked defenses.
