NBA ; DeRozan, Raptors Beat Clippers, 91-80


Resnick, Joe, Charleston Gazette Mail


LOS ANGELES - The Toronto Raptors shut down Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, and then had enough to hold off the Los Angeles Clippers at the very end. DeMar DeRozan had 21 points, DeMarre Carroll scored each of his 21 points in the first half, and the Raptors held Griffin and Paul scoreless through the first 20-plus minutes of a 91- 80 victory over the Clippers on Sunday.

"We respect Griffin and Paul because they're All-Stars, but it's not the first time we've played them, center Bismack Biyombo said after making his first start of the season for the injured Jonas Valanciunas. "Today our guards and our bigs did a pretty good job of taking them out of the game. We started the game the right way, and that helped.

Luis Scola added 20 points and Kyle Lowry had 13 points and 10 assists for the Raptors (9-6), who closed out a 2-3 road trip. They shot just 37 percent from the field, but outrebounded the Clippers 46-42 and forced 19 turnovers.

J.J. Redick scored 17 points for Los Angeles (6-7), which has lost three straight and seven of nine after starting the season 4- 0. The only other time the Clips were under .500 during Doc Rivers' two-plus seasons as coach was after his first game on the job, which they lost to the Lakers before winning their next three.

"We're pretty frustrated, Griffin said. "It's been three in a row, so I think it's pretty normal to be frustrated. But we can't let that frustration affect us negatively, moving forward.

The Clippers, who blew a 23-point lead in a 124-117 home loss to the Warriors on Thursday, sliced a 29-point deficit against the Raptors to 73-67 with a 17-2 run capped by Austin Rivers' short jumper with 9:26 to play. But that was as close as they got.

"The hardest thing to do in the NBA is play with a big lead, because human nature says you're going to let down, Raptors coach Duane Casey said. "You've got to come out in the third with the same energy, and that's very difficult to do in this league. It was a good win, and we'll take it, but we're not satisfied with it. We've got so much room for improvement on the offensive end.

Griffin, who picked up three fouls in his first 10 1/2 minutes on the floor, scored his first points on a 20-footer 31 seconds into the third quarter. …
