Chris Paul scored 12 of his 23 points in the final 2:42, including a go-ahead layup with 24.6 seconds left, leading the Los Angeles Clippers to a 95-91 victory over the Houston Rockets on Saturday. Blake Griffin had 18 points and eight rebounds before fouling out with 4.9 seconds remaining. Randy Foye contributed 15 points in what could be his last start because of the acquisition of Nick Young on Thursday from Washington. Courtney Lee led Houston with a season-high 25 points despite a strained tendon in the middle finger of his left hand. Chase Budinger added 19 points, and Goran Dragic had 14 assists along with his 11 points. The victory put the Clippers within 2 1/2 games of the idle Lakers in the race for the Pacific Division lead.
