Eric Gordon hit the tying 3-pointer at the end of the first overtime period and Randy Foye hit a deciding three in the second to lead the Clippers to the 127-119 home win over the Washington Wizards.
Griffin had 33 points, 17 rebounds and 10 assists – his first triple-double of the season and career – to lead Los Angeles (28-44) while Eric Gordon scored 32 and Chris Kaman had 28 and 12 rebounds in the high-scoring affair. It’s the first time this season that both Gordon and Griffin have scored at least 30 points in the same game and Kaman was two points shy of the team having a third.
Wizards guard John Wall tied it at 102 with a running floater over the outstretched arm of Kaman with 19 seconds left in the fourth quarter, and Griffin missed a 3-point attempt at the other end with a second on the clock. Gordon sent it into a second OT for the Clippers with a 3-pointer out of a timeout with 1.9 seconds left.
Mo Williams also scored in double figures for the Clippers with 17 (and 10 assists) and Foye finished the game with eight points – including the three-pointer in the second OT.
