NBA 

Chris Paul got plenty of motivation before Sunday's Game 4 win: "All my teammates, my brother, all them been telling me how passive I've been, so I just tried to be a little aggressive." But it's Paul's son who'll likely take credit, Paul says.

Love hurt on Olynyk foul

It's impossible to draw any definitive conclusions from a still image, but if Kevin Love really believes Kelly Olynyk's hard foul was intentional, this picture certainly won't dissuade him. 'Bush league,' says Love

Clips can't close door on Spurs

Kawhi Leonard made one bad decision on a heat check of a jumper, but he has San Antonio right back in the thick of it with less than 2 minutes remaining in the fourth. Chris Paul (30 points, 7 assists) has been huge; can he keep L.A. from going down 3-1? Watch live

Wow. Back to back threes from Kawhi Leonard. It's now 106-98. Some Spurs fans had already started heading for the exits.

Chris Paul is staying in the game for now because, well, they have no depth. Lester Hudson isn't playing in this spot.

Chris Paul takes the fifth in fourth
NBA 

It's a good thing for the Clippers that Austin Rivers is on fire, because CP3 just picked up his fifth foul with over 8 minutes remaining in regulation. All 5 Paul fouls have come in the second half. The Clippers' lead hovers at just a shade under double digits ... for now. Watch live on ESPN/Watch ESPN

Wow! I'm about to faint. Austin Rivers is balling. Possibly saving the Clippers season right now. Clips have extended the lead w/ DJ out.
