The Thunders lost Game 4 despite having a 16-point lead in the final 10 minutes of a 101-99 loss on Sunday. The league's MVP Kevin Durant was double-teamed by Clippers' guard Chris Paul and Darren Collison, which limited Durant to 7 of 10 field goals, and seven turnovers.
"Little guys get up under you, but they're not just going to play me one-on-one," Durant said, according to AP. "Basically, they've got three guys watching me. They've got one behind me, so when I caught it, they double-teamed as soon as I caught it. And when they didn't double team, I scored. People always have something to say about the 1-on-1 matchup, which never happens in the league, especially with me."
Meanwhile, Clippers' Blake Griffin was inadvertently struck in the groin by Thunder forward Serge Ibaka. A league spokesman confirmed Monday that Ibaka will not be punished.
The Thunder shot 56 percent in winning 118-112 on Friday. Meanwhile, the Clippers were held to 45 percent, while making 21 of 25 free throws and committing just six turnovers.
Chris Paul had 21 points, 16 assists and no turnovers. He played 42 minutes Friday. Griffin scored 34 points, while taking an elbow to nose.
Durant said Game 4 will be the toughest of the series, knowing Clippers will be doing everything that they can to even out the series.
In Game 1, Thunder beat the Clippers in a 112-101 victory. In Game 2, the Clippers came back and tied the series. Durant had 32 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists, and Westbrook had 31 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists.
"We have to take that and then add to that," Thunder coach Scott Brooks said, according to AP. "You can't be satisfied. The intensity as the series goes along improves and it becomes greater, and we have to make the next jump."
The Clippers finished as the highest-scoring team during the regular season with 107.9 points per game, while the Thunder came in fifth with 106.2 points per contest. Oklahoma City ranked 12th in opponents' scoring, while LA was two spots worse.
During the season, the two squads were evenly-matched. The Thunder has won five of the last seven meetings, but the two sides split four meetings this season. Each team won a road game during the four matchups in the 2013-14 campaign
