Griffin hurt; Clippers hang on to beat Lakers 120-115

Griffin hurt Clippers hang on to beat Lakers 120-115

When Los Angeles Clippers All-Star big man Blake Griffin went down with what looked to be a serious knee injury Monday night, you could hear a pin drop at the Staples Center.

On a drive to the basket, Lakers guard Lonzo Ball and Griffin got tangled up while fighting for the ball. His counterpart in the backcourt, Patrick Beverley, was lost for the season last week after undergoing microfracture surgery to fix a torn meniscus in his right knee.

It was his third 40-plus point game and the first time a Clipper had scored at least that much since Griffin had 43 on February 26 at Charlotte.

Obviously, Doc didn't have time to go break down the game tape and see what resulted in Griffin's injury so he went with what he thought happened. It was Caldwell Pope's third consecutive game with 20 or more points.

"We just had to continue to push", Williams said. Until then, they'll rely heavily on Williams, who scored a season-high 42 points as the Clippers held off the L.A. Lakers to win 120-115 Monday with Griffin missing the final 3:53. Get the app and get the game. He was 12-for-21 from the field, four-for-eight from three-point range.

Williams had a dunk and DeAndre Jordan noticed.

Kuzma is back on the Lakers bench with the return of Larry Nance Jr. Kuzma's double-double was a single-game high for an National Basketball Association rookie this season. He had seven points and two assists in 16:11. "There's another player out there now that's going to be taking some of those minutes". "For the past three weeks I've been dreaming of this, I missed it".

The Clippers are sitting on a 7-11 record without a lot of postseason hopes, so they'll likely err on the extreme side of caution with their franchise cornerstone.
