Clippers Erase 16-Point Fourth-Quarter Lead, Beat Thunder 101-99

Robyn Beck/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- The Los Angeles Clippers erased a 16-point fourth quarter lead to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 101-99 on Sunday to even up the best-of-seven series at two.

Darren Collison had 12 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter and Jamal Crawford's three-pointer with 1:23 left in the game gave the Clippers their first lead of the game.

Collison had back-to-back baskets on a fast break that gave Los Angeles a 101-97 lead.

"Even though we didn't play well throughout the game, we were able to get a win," Collison said. "That feels more impressive than anything we did."

The Thunder chose not to foul the Clippers during their final possession, which gave Russell Westbrook a chance to win the game, but his three-pointer hit off the rim to give Los Angeles the win.

Blake Griffin had 25 points and Chris Paul added 23 in the victory.

Kevin Durant had 40 points, but went 1-of-2 at the free throw line with under two minutes remaining that gave the Clippers a chance to take the lead.  Westbook finished with 27 points in the loss.

Game 5 will be on Tuesday night in Oklahoma City.
