Lakers Edge Clippers at the Buzzer

If last night was any indication of how the remaining three \"city series\" games are going to be, we are in for a treat. For much of the game the young Clippers looked to be a step ahead of the Lakers who were playing the second night of a back-to-back. The Clippers took a 6 point lead into the fourth quarter but a string of turnovers allowed the Lakers to sneak back into the game. Kobe Bryant put them up one with under a minute to play with a fast break jumper after Eric Gordon's second consecutive turnover. At the other end, DeAndre Jordan's dunk gave The Clippers a one point advantage with 15 seconds to play. After a timeout The Lakers inbounded from mid-court to Steve Fischer who gave a slight hesitation move then drove to the bucket lofting a game-winning runner over Eric Bledsoe and DeAndre Jordan just as time expired. The Clippers play Memphis at home on Saturday and Orlando on Sunday. The Lakers look to make it four straight with a road game tomorrow in Chicago.
