Paul Drops 29 As Clippers Knock Off The Pacers

Last updated on Friday, March 1, 2013

(Indianapolis, IN) - Chris Paul scored 29 points to lead the Los Angeles Clippers to a 99-91 win at Indiana, snapping the Pacers’ winning streak at five games.

Jamal Crawford scored 23 points off the bench with Blake Griffin finishing with 18 points and 14 rebounds as the Clippers won their third game in a row.

David West led the Pacers with 22 points with Paul George adding 20.

Danny Granger had his most productive night of the season, scoring twelve points off the bench in his third game back following knee surgery.

With the loss, Indiana falls to 36-22 and drops into third place in the Eastern Conference standings, percentage points behind second-place New York.

Roy Hibbert will be back in the lineup tonight when the Pacers face the Raptors in Toronto.

Hibbert was suspended for one game after getting in a shoving match with Golden State's David Lee in Indiana's win over the Warriors on Tuesday night.

Hibbert missed last night's loss against the Clippers.

Lee was also suspended one game and served his suspension on Wednesday when Golden State lost at New York.

Pacers guard Lance Stephenson and Golden State players Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson were each fined 35-thousand dollars for their roles in Tuesday night's incident.
