They were part of a 15-5 run that stretched the Clippers lead to 129-108. The Rockets controlled the start of the fourth, but got no closer than nine points. That was as close as they got four times in the third. "They just did whatever they wanted," McHale said. "We just couldnt stop them." The Clippers led 78-66 at halftime. They shot 59 per cent from the floor and made 19 of 22 free throws. Redick shot 6 of 9 and made all six of his free throws in the half. "Guy can shoot the basketball. Its unbelievable," Griffin said. "The best part of playing with him is he never stops moving. Thats how he gets his shots, he really works for them." Howard picked up three fouls in the first quarter. Griffin also had three fouls by halftime, including two in an 11-second span just before the break. Notes: The Clippers set a franchise record for 3-point attempts in a game with 38. ...
