LOS ANGELES -- The Clippers and the Kings were both mad about the 20-point difference in their game. The Clippers were angry about blowing a big lead; the Kings didnt like being in that kind of hole and nearly digging themselves out only to lose. Chris Paul scored 22 points, hitting a go-ahead free throw with 2.5 seconds left, to help Los Angeles win 103-102 Saturday. "Weve got to put teams away and not keep being in all these dogfights," Paul said. "It was kind of fitting we won with a defensive stop because weve been trying to improve our defence. Hopefully it gives us some confidence." Paul got fouled and made the first, putting the Clippers ahead 103-102, but missed the second. After a timeout, DeAndre Jordan appeared to alter DeMarcus Cousins jumper to preserve the win. "The only thing they could get was a jump shot," Jordan said. "I was just praying they didnt call a foul. They gave me a block? Thats awesome, Ill take it." Actually, although a block was immediately posted in the statistics, officials took it away in the final box score, leaving Jordan with two blocks for the game. Jordan had 17 points and 12 rebounds, and Blake Griffin finished with 16 points and 10 boards for the Clippers, who have won 11 of their last 13 against the Kings. J.J. Redick added 15 points. Pauls NBA-record streak of 13 straight games with at least 10 points and 10 assists to start a season ended when he finished with nine assists. Cousins had 23 points and 19 rebounds for the Kings, who had won two in a row. Isaiah Thomas added 22 points, making 11 of 13 free throws, and Patrick Patterson scored 21 points off the bench, combining to outscore the Clippers reserves. Afterward, Cousins tried to pull Thomas away from Jamal Crawford as they went to shake hands. "Thats just DeMarcus," Thomas said, laughing. "He gets upset. He doesnt like anybody on the other team, and thats how he is. Im all for it, but I just had to shake my guy Jamals hand." Jared Dudley didnt think much of Cousins move. "Its bad sportsmanship," he said. "Hes better than that. Someone will talk to him." Thomas and Patterson carried the Kings in the fourth, when Cousins was limited to four points and picked up two fouls on the same play. "Im tired of being a part of going down 20 and then trying to come back later in the game," Cousins said. "The way we played the last stretch of that game, weve got to start games off the same way so that we wont be in those situations and wed have a better chance." Dudleys 3-pointer pulled the Clippers to 96-95 and then Pauls 3 tied it at 98-all with 1:29 to play. Cousins missed a pair of free throws before Pauls driving layup put the Clippers, who led by nine earlier in the fourth, back in front 100-98. Thomas made two free throws for another tie at 100-all. Griffins driving dunk gave the Clippers back the lead 102-100 with 44 seconds left. Paul fouled Thomas, who made both for a 102-all tie with 24 seconds left. Thompson and Patterson combined on a 10-point run to open the fourth and give Sacramento a 79-78 lead. Travis Outlaw got called for a flagrant-2 foul for pulling down Redick on a fast break and was ejected. "I dont think Outlaw is a dirty player despite his last name," Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. "But it was just that he was trying to stop the play and he got (Redick) around the neck. You have to throw the guy out." Thomas disagreed. "I didnt think it was a flagrant-2," he said. "Travis is a guy whos never even looking to do anything like that, and the first thing they think of is throwing him out of the game. We tried to play through it, but we just couldnt get the win." Redick made just one of two free throws, tying the game at 79-all. The Kings chipped away in the third and twice cut their deficit to two points before Cousins scored their final four points to trail 75-69 going into the fourth. The Clippers were 7 of 18 from the floor, got outrebounded 15-10 and missed 7 of 9 free throws. The Clippers extended their lead to 40-20 in the second before the Kings outscored them 28-17 to end the half trailing 57-48. "Its a mental thing. You have to stay locked in," Griffin said about blowing the big lead. "They played well in the second half, but I felt like it was on us. We relaxed too much." The Clippers shot 62 per cent in dominating the first. They ran off 16 unanswered points, including four 3-pointers in a row, to go up 21-8. Dudley hit back-to-back 3s in front of the Clippers bench before they closed the quarter with six straight points to lead 29-13.

Italy overcame a 15-point deficit to earn the win, after Luigi Datome made a layup at the buzzer in regulation to force overtime. Also, Croatia knocked out Greece with a 92-88 victory in double OT. The loss meant little for Spain, which had qualified for the quarterfinals because of Croatias victory. Spain dropped to fourth place in Group F and will play Serbia in the first quarterfinal on Wednesday, when host Slovenia faces France. On Thursday, Croatia plays Ukraine and Lithuania is against Italy. In another game, Finland beat Slovenia 92-76. Datome also had key plays in overtime and Alessandro Gentile made four straight free throws to secure Italys victory. Gentile finished with 25 points. "We beat probably the best team in the tournament," said Italy guard Pietro Aradori, who had 17 points. Datome had a block on Victor Claver before making two free throws for an 82-77 Italy lead. Since winning the silver medal at the 2004 Olympics, Italy has not been able to reach the quarterfinals in any major competition, and failed to qualify for the past two Olympics. Italy missed the 2009 Europeans as well and finished 17th two years ago. "This was a good win for my players who had a great desire to play such a game -- in the last few years we could see Spain only on TV," Italy coach Simone Pianigiani said. Spain dropped its third game of the tournament and has looked vulnerable. It has also lost to Slovenia and Greece. "I thought we had the game under control for three quarters, we defended well and we could run and score easy baskets. But tthen we broke down, lost our game and they took the momentum into overtime," said Gasol, whose brother Pau is sitting out the event.dddddddddddd Bojan Bogdanovic made two free throws with 18 seconds left to secure Croatias victory in a tight game. Bogdanovic led all scorers with 22 points. Greece needed to beat Croatia and hope for Italy to beat Spain and Slovenia to defeat Finland to have any hope of advancing to the quarterfinals. Instead Croatia, which had already secured its spot, made sure of winning Group F. Croatia is aiming to make the podium at a major tournament for the first time in 18 years. Greece, champion in 1987 and 2005, had failed to make the last eight only three times since 1987. It never finished lower than sixth when it reached the quarterfinals. Nikos Zisis made a 3-pointer for Greece with nine seconds left in regulation to tie the game, and then gave his team a 3-point lead with a layup with 36 seconds left in the first overtime. But Bogdanovic hit a 3 to tie the game and Zisis missed a layup that would have won the game. "That three by Bogdanovic decided the game," Greece coach Andrea Trinchieri said. By then, Greece was already without its playmaker Vassilis Spanoulis, who fouled out with three minutes remaining in the first overtime. Zisis missed another game-tying layup in the second OT before Bogdanovic made the free throws that secured Croatias win. "We missed two layups to win the game," Trinchieri said. Centre Yannis Bourousis led Greece with 21 points and nine rebounds, while Spanoulis had 18 points. "Zisis scored a very tough shot to tie the game. Greece is a very experienced team that can control the rhythm and they did," Croatia coach Jasmin Repesa said. ' ' '
