The Los Angeles Clippers put up a fight against the Thunder and narrowed the game down to a 8 point game, but came up short in the 4th quarter. The Clippers lost their point guard Teodosic early in the game, who only played 9 minutes and exited the game early due to a nagging foot injury. But, the teams woes doesn’t stop there since they will also be without Austin Rivers that won’t be able to play two or more weeks as a result of a heel injury.
