Believe it or not, the downtrodden Clippers have beaten the Celtics at the Staples Center two years in a row. From AP-
For the first 47 1/2 minutes, Rajon Rondo was quicker, sharper and smoother than Baron Davis.
In the final seconds, the Boston youngster just couldn’t match the bearded one’s California cool.
Davis hit a long fallaway jumper at the buzzer after Rondo missed two free throws 1.5 seconds earlier, and the Los Angeles Clippers dramatically snapped the Celtics’ nine-game road winning streak with a 92-90 victory on Sunday night.
Davis had 24 points and 13 assists for the Clippers, whose three-game losing streak ended when Davis took an inbounds pass with a second left, pivoted and hopped backward for a perfect 22-footer while drawing a little contact from Rondo, giving Los Angeles its only lead of the second half.
The win makes Los Angeles 13-17 for the 2009-10 NBA season or 13th out of 15 in the Western conference. Which isn’t as bad as it sounds. The Clippers are 2.5 games out of 9th and well ahead of Minnesota and Golden State the two conference tailenders.
As for the Celtics, they are 23-6 now. Cleveland trails Boston by a half game in the Eastern Conference.
