LOS ANGELES (AP) — Neither team could make a shot. The ball bounced crazily on and around the rim, but rarely went in.
In timeouts, the Suns only talked defense. The Clippers deliberately missed free throws in a desperate attempt to retain possession and fire up a 3-pointer.
In the end, former Clipper Chris Paul made clutch free throws on a night when everyone was missing.
Devin Booker scored 25 points before fouling out in the final minute and Phoenix escaped with an 84-80 victory . . .
