The Magic hit their second and third three pointers with about 2 minutes left in the half, and Jameer Nelson, who made the first one, also put these two in to tie the game. They lead the league in three-pointers taken and made, but have started off stagnant tonight. They also gave up 10 turnovers, and the Clippers were able to convert them to 22 points, which is a large reason why they are leading at the half.
For the Clippers, Baron Davis continues to lead the way in scoring with 12 points, three of which came from a dumb foul by Jason Richardson behind the three-point line. He also leads Los Angeles in rebounds with six. Blake Griffin has been having a very quiet quarter, but the forward Ike Diogu has been filling in nicely off the bench with eight points. The Clippers have nine steals, but are being out-rebounded by the Magic 25-19.
