  • LOS ANGELES — Blake Griffin scored a career playoff-high 35 points without a foul and the Clippers led all the way in routing the Warriors to even their first-round NBA playoff series at a game apiece Monday.
    Chris Paul added 12 points and 10 assists for the Clippers, who started the game on a 14-4 run and kept on going, maintaining a sizeable double-digit lead through the final three quarters. They finished with a franchise record points for a playoff game.
    All the foul trouble that plagued Griffin and Paul in the Clippers' four-point loss in Game 1 belonged to the Warriors this time.
    Stephen Curry scored 20 of his 24 points in the third quarter, when the Warriors never got closer than 25 points, while playing with four fouls. Klay Thompson finished with seven points.
    Grizzlies 111, Thunder 105 (OT)
    At Oklahoma City, Zach Randolph scored 25 points to help Memphis defeat Oklahoma City in overtime and tie their first-round playoff series at one game apiece.
    Kevin Durant had 36 points and 11 rebounds for the Thunder. Russell Westbrook scored 29 points for Oklahoma City, but he made just 11 of 28 shots.
    Randolph's layup with 26 seconds left in overtime put the Grizzlies up by two. Oklahoma City's Serge Ibaka traveled, giving the ball back to the Grizzlies. Courtney Lee made two free throws for Memphis to make it a four-point game.
