BOSTON – – Eric Bledsoe scored 10 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter, hitting a key 3-pointer down the stretch, to help the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Boston Celtics 91-82 on Wednesday night.
Thomas hit a long 3-pointer at the end of the first quarter, but the officials ruled it was too late and the call was upheld after a video review between periods, leaving the Clippers’ lead at 26-21.
The Clippers benefited from another video review after challenging a shooting foul called on Ivica Zubac that would have put Brown at the foul line. Morris, who played two seasons for Boston, made five of his first six shots and led all scorers with 12 points in the first quarter. The Clippers won the first meeting 114-111 on Dec. 8 after being swept by Boston last season.
