Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- The Los Angeles Clippers have defeated Western Conference powers Portland and Houston in the last two weeks. Now they finally have a win over the league's worst team.

Rodney Rogers scored a season-high 19 points and keyed a 12-0 run in the fourth quarter as the Clippers defeated the Vancouver Grizzlies for the first time this season with a 105-96 victory.

"I was just in the right place at the right time," said Rogers, who scored 11 points in the final period. "We had to go in and try to make something happen."

After Shareef Abdur-Rahim's jumper gave Vancouver a 93-87 lead, Rogers drilled consecutive 3-pointers to tie it with 5:15 remaining.

Maurice Taylor followed with a layup before Rogers and Taylor each hit two free throws, extending the Clippers' advantage to 99-93 with 2:21 left.

"The Grizzlies played great defense on (Rogers) tonight and for Rodney to come out and do the job he did really helped us out a lot," Taylor said. "We need Rodney to play well if we're going to win every night."

Abdur-Rahim had 27 points and Tony Massenburg added 22 for the Grizzlies, who went scoreless for five minutes down the stretch and were held to just three free throws in the final 7:08.

"We didn't find our offense in the fourth quarter," Vancouver coach Brian Hill said. "I thought we were in good shape, but they hit some big 3-point shots. It gave them life and it took a little of our life away."

Vancouver closed to 99-96 on Abdur-Rahim's two free throws with 1:51 remaining, but Taylor hit a jumpr and Troy Hudson added a pair from the line to ice the win.

Taylor had 25 points for the Clippers, who have won consecutive games for the second time this season. They defeated Houston, 106-101, in overtime on Friday. On April 11, they stunned the Trail Blazers in Portland, 89-83.

"They're playing a lot better basketball and it's good to see different people coming out and making big plays," Los Angeles coach Chris Ford said. "This was a good team win."

Vancouver set a club record with its 20th straight road loss, breaking the previous mark of 19 set by the 1995-96 squad. Three of the Grizzlies' eight victories this season have come against the Clippers, including their last road win on February 16.

"We have a tendency to get lackadaisical when we get up nine or 10 points," Hill added.

Eric Piatkowski added 17 for Los Angeles, which opened a 1 1/2-game lead over the Grizzlies in the battle to avoid the league's worst record. The Clippers also won for the first time at home this season when trailing after three quarters.

Vancouver used an 18-4 run to turn a 58-52 halftime deficit into a 70-62 edge on Cherokee Parks' jumper with 6:39 left in the third period.

The Clippers scored the first six points of the final period to grab an 83-82 lead on Rogers' 3-point play with 10:38 remaining.

"Rodney turned things around in the fourth," Ford said. "When it looked like it was slipping away, Rodney came in and hit the big 3-pointers."

Los Angeles shot 49 percent (39-of-79) from the field and converted 16 Vancouver turnovers into 24 points. Rookie Felipe Lopez added 14 for the Grizzlies, who shot 51 percent (32-of-63).
