Morning Wrap: Chris Paul Has Rough Finish in Clippers Loss

((ht: cbssports.com))

Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul picked a bad night to have a bad night.

Paul did have 12 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists during the game, nearly getting the coveted "Triple Double"...but it's what happened at the end of Monday nights game vs. San Antonio that killed the mood.

The Spurs were up by 2, but the Clippers had the ball. Paul made his move from the top of the key, driving to the basket and missed the layup with 2 defenders in his face.

Somehow, Clippers forward Blake Griffin ended up with the ball after diving for it on the ground. Paul called timeout with 1.4 seconds left in the game.

Problem was, he had no timeouts and calling one when you have none means a technical foul.

But...San Antonio's Tony Parker missed the technical.

Still, the Spurs got to inbound the ball to Kawhi Leonard who drained two free throws, giving San Antonio the 89-85 win.
