Clippers let one slip away

After leading 34-17 at the end of the first quarter and by 22 points in the second, the Clippers let it slip away from them and Toronto won at Staples Center 104-89.

The Raptors capped their comeback in the fourth quarter – punctuated by a 16-0 run and four three-pointers to end the game.

Chris Bosh had 21 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Raptors, who started a four-game road trip in Los Angeles. Andrea Bargnani added 19 and Jose Calderon 18 for Toronto (5-4).

Chris Kaman had 25 points for the Clippers while Baron Davis added 17 and Al Thornton had 12. Steve Novak was the other Clipper who scored in double figures, with 10 points off the bench.

The Clippers are awaiting the return of Blake Griffin, who hasn’t played in the regular season due to an injured knee. The date of his return is undetermined at this time.
