76ers Bow to the Clippers

Sixers lose 2 straight at home

With some help from Blake Griffin, Chris Paul came up huge when the Los Angeles Clippers needed it most.
Paul had 24 points, including the game-winning 17-footer with 3.2 seconds left, Griffin added 16 points and 11 rebounds and the Clippers defeated the Philadelphia 76ers 78-77 on Friday.
On the Clippers' final possession, Paul sent a pass to Griffin, but the ball bounced through his legs. Griffin went on the floor, passed back to Paul, who somehow scored over the outstretched arm of Philadelphia's Andre Iguodala who is one of the best defenders in the league.
The Sixers completed a tough seven-game stretch with a 4-3 mark.
Philadelphia defeated Orlando, Chicago and the Los Angeles Lakers at home with a road victory against Atlanta.
The three losses came against Miami, San Antonio and the Clippers, all at home.
The Sixers have a 13-5 record at home following a favorable schedule with only nine road games thus far.
