Chris Paul added 19 points and Maurice Speights scored 11 of his season-high 16 points in the fourth for the Clippers, who improved to 12-2 on the season.

Speights' biggest assist came with 49 seconds left. Jamal Crawford missed a 3-pointer and Speights got the rebound, then fed Crawford for a driving reverse layup that restored the Clippers' lead to five points.

Draymond Green tipped away an inbounds pass intended for Antetokounmpo with 10 seconds left and Thompson was fouled after securing the loose ball. He hit both free throws to seal the win.
