That is a complete joke. I thought our guys drove and got hit all game, and (Lou) Williams down the stretch got killed on a play, and no call … our guys played their hearts out, but for them to shoot that many more free throws than us, and we’re the team attacking it just doesn’t make basketball sense to me.”Tobias Harris led the Clippers with 29 points and Rivers had 20.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Recto seeks to establish Taal rehab body to aid community, eruption victims The Clippers scored six points in a row, with the last four from Jawun Evans, to tie it at 80-all early in the fourth quarter.

Houston scored five quick points after that, but the Clippers used an 8-2 run to extend the lead to 66-54 with seven minutes left in the period.Their big lead was short-lived though, as Houston scored the next 12 points, powered by 3-pointers on consecutive possessions by Gordon, to go on top 68-66. Gordon also had a nice play near the end of the run when he grabbed a rebound and chucked a long pass down the court to Clint Capela, who finished with a basket in the lane.Rivers ended a more than three-minute scoring drought by the Clippers not long after that to tie it back up.The game remained tied a couple of minutes later before the Rockets closed out the quarter with a 6-2 run to take a 78-74 lead into the fourth quarter.TIP-INSRockets: Ryan Anderson missed his ninth straight game with a sore left hip. … Chris Paul got a technical foul early in the third quarter for complaining about not getting a foul call. … Capela finished with 19 points, 12 rebounds and six blocks.Clippers: It was the 30th time Harris has scored 20 or more points this season. … DeAndre Jordan had eight points and 18 rebounds. … The Clippers made just four of 18 3-pointers.JUST A BIT OFFSeven-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens took the first shot for charity before the game.
