Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Keeping Clips Alive

The Clippers are up one on San Antonio through three, and they have the performance of their two superstars to thank. 28 points in the third for the team, 12 by Griffin - including two monster dunks and some nice finishes over Tiago Splitter and Boris Diaw - and nine points and five assists for Paul.

Those other seven points: two were assisted by Paul, two came on a tip-in by Eric Bledsoe off a barely missed Paul free throw, and one came on a clear-path foul on Randy Foye in the backcourt. So, yeah, that's 24 of 28 points caused by Paul or Griffin, or both.

They'll need more to stave off elimination for a few more nights.
