The Clippers and Bucks played one that was close pretty much the whole way on Saturday night (neither side led by more nine the whole way) but when it got down to the end the Clippers could lean on Chris Paul and Blake Griffin and Milwaukee had nobody who could match that.
CP3 had nine points in the final six minutes of the game including two free throws with 1:12 left that put the Clips up two.
At that point the Bucks put the ball in Brandon Knight’s hands. For some reason. Knight missed a three pointer, then when Jared Dudley grabbed the offensive board and gave the Bucks a second chance, we got another Knight isolation set that went nowhere followed by a missed long two. Still the Bucks were going to have one more chance if they could get a stop and they forced Paul into a long two that missed, but on the switches Knight ended up having to box out Blake Griffin and, well, that didn’t end well.
Griffin gets the dagger tip in and the Clippers win their seventh in a row at home.
