NBA Playoff Capsules

WASHINGTON - Paul George had his best game of the series with 23 points and eight rebounds, Roy Hibbert was again a factor by scoring 14 points, and the Indiana Pacers held the Washington Wizards to a franchise-low playoff total Friday night in an 85-63 victory.

The Pacers lead the Eastern Conference semifinal 2-1.

Washington made only 24 field goals, another team post-season worst, on 73 attempts, 32.9 per cent. That included 4 of 16 on 3s, and it didn't get much better on free throws, where the Wizards were 11 of 21.

So much for the bandwagon-hopping in Washington. There were boos on occasion, and most of the crowd started heading to the exits after George's 3 with 3 1/2 minutes left made it 75-58.

Game 4 is Sunday in Washington.

THUNDER 118, CLIPPERS 112

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kevin Durant scored 36 points, Russell Westbrook added 23 and Oklahoma City outplayed Los Angeles in the fourth quarter for a 2-1 lead in their Western Conference semifinal.

Serge Ibaka added 20 points and Westbrook had 13 assists for the Thunder, who shot 56 per cent from the field, in a game that neither team ever led by double digits.

Blake Griffin scored 34 points, and Chris Paul added 21 points and 16 assists for the Clippers, who saw their four-point lead disappear for good early in the fourth quarter. Sixth Man of the Year Jamal Crawford added 20 points.

Oklahoma City led 113-107 on Durant's turnaround jumper with 1:23 left. It followed Westbrook's 3-pointer after the Clippers had closed within 108-107 when Griffin muscled in for a layup.

Game 4 is Sunday at Staples Center.
