Jamal Crawford scored 24 points, including several big shots down the stretch, and the Los Angeles Clippers locked up home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs, holding off the Sacramento Kings 112-108 on Wednesday night in the regular-season finale for both teams.
And with NBA owners still deciding whether to approve the sale and relocation of the Kings to Seattle, possibly the last in California's capital city.
Chris Paul had 25 points and 11 assists to lead the Pacific Division-champion Clippers (56-26), who earned the Western Conference's fourth seed and will open against fifth-seeded Memphis (56-26). The Clippers won three of four games against the Grizzlies this season.
DeMarcus Cousins had a season-high 36 points and a career-best 22 rebounds, and Marcus Thornton scored 21 to rally Sacramento from an 11-point deficit in the fourth quarter before the Clippers took control.

Who cares? Tonight was about the end of an era, and barring a really stupid decision by the Board of Governors in New York a couple of weeks from now, perhaps the last game ever in Sacramento.
You know what? I don't care.
There was the game and here is the boxscore. Have fun with it.

Chris Paul is having himself another brilliant year, and thanks to the NBA’s phantom camera we are able to enjoy some of his moves slowed down to a point where it little easier easier for the common man to understand what is actually going on.
