LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Blake Griffin had 30 points and 12 rebounds, J.J. Redick added 26 points and the Los Angeles Clippers rallied to beat the short-handed Brooklyn Nets 110-103 Saturday night, improving to 5-0 at home. DeAndre Jordan had 16 rebounds, Chris Paul added 12 points and 13 assists, and Jamal Crawford had seven of his 13 points in the fourth for the Clippers, who kept the Nets winless against them in Los Angeles since Nov. 15, 2010. The Nets played without injured starters Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez, Paul Pierce and Deron Williams, leaving Joe Johnson as the only regular in the lineup. Still, the Clippers had to hold off an inspired bunch of subs who were coming off an overtime win at Phoenix a night earlier. Andray Blatche and Mason Plumlee scored 19 points each, and Alan Anderson had 15 for the Nets, who fell to 1-5 on the road under rookie coach Jason Kidd. The anticipated reunion of new Los Angeles coach Doc Rivers and his former Boston stars Garnett and Pierce was scuttled. Neither of the Nets players was at the game. The trio teamed to lead the Celtics to the 2008 NBA championship. Byron Mullens and Crawford hit 3-pointers early in the fourth, when the Clippers led by six. The Nets got within three points three times before Johnsons jump hook cut their deficit to 93-92 with 4:12 left. Redick and Paul sandwiched 3-pointers around a free throw by Griffin to stay ahead, 100-94. Johnsons running bank shot pulled the Nets to 104-101 with 36 seconds to go, but Jordan dunked and the Clippers finished the game off at the line. Brooklyn opened the third with 10 straight points, including back-to-back 3-pointers by Anderson, to go up 65-54. The Clippers staged a furious rally, outscoring the Nets 20-2 in a run that had three 3-pointers — two by Redick and another from Mullens — for their first lead, 74-67, since the end of the opening quarter. Redick scored 10 points and Mullens and Griffin added five each. Griffin blocked Plumlee at Brooklyns end and scored at the other end, getting fouled and hitting the free throw. Paul tossed up an alley-oop that Griffin threw down to ignite the sellout crowd. But the Nets closed with a 9-2 spurt to trail 76-75 going into the fourth. The Nets led 55-54 at halftime after blowing nearly all of a 10-point lead while being outscored 10-1 over the final 2:12. Paul scored five straight points and his steal led to a fast-break layup by Griffin, who got fouled and made the free throw. NOTES: Garnett and Lopez have ankle injuries; Pierce has a groin injury; and Williams sprained his left ankle in Friday nights overtime win at Phoenix. Reserve F Andrei Kirilenko was out with back spasms. ... In the Nets six losses, theyve been outscored in the paint. The Clippers had a 44-38 edge. ...

.m. ET, CBSOPENING LINE — Falcons by 3 1/2RECORD VS. CHERRY HILLS VILLAGE, Colo. -- Sergio Garcia hit great shots that led to eagle, birdie and par Friday. They carried him to a 6-under 64, giving him a one-shot lead going into the weekend at the BMW Championship on ever-changing Cherry Hills. Garcia holed out from a greenside bunker for birdie on the second hole. He holed a lob wedge for eagle on the short, par-4 seventh hole. And after hitting into the water going for the green on the par-5 17th hole, he escaped with par by getting up-and-down with a wedge to a foot. He needed them all. Ryan Palmer also made eagle with a short wedge on the seventh hole, and he finished birdie-birdie for a 64 to end up a shot behind. Rory McIlroy made three straight birdies late in his round and left his last putt on the edge of the cup. The late surge gave the worlds No. 1 player another 67 and put him two shots behind. Billy Horschel, a runner-up last week at the TPC Boston, had a 66 and was tied with McIlroy. Weyburn, Sask., native Graham DeLaet shot a 68 to sit four back of Garcia in a tie for fifth spot. Garcia was at 8-under 132. Barring a charge that would make even Arnold Palmer proud, Phil Mickelson is playing his last PGA Tour event of the season. He twice hit into the water -- making a triple bogey on the par-3 12th and a bogey on the 17th -- and shot a 76. Mickelson, who needs to finish about fourth to qualify for the Tour Championship, was 14 shots behind and in a tie for 63rd in the 68-man field. Jason Day withdrew on the ninth hole with a back injury and said he would try to be ready for the Tour Championship. The only peculiar part of Garcias day was his left ear. He was on the sixth green when he felt a series of beeps, followed by a "pop" that made him feel uncomfortable for about the next hour before it finally went away. Hes not sure what it was. Hes not sure theres a word for it in Spanish. "Its happened before, but usually I kind of blow it and it gets back," Garcia said. "But for some reason, it just didnt feel quite the same. And it still doesnt, but its definitely better. It shouldnt be too big of a deal." But it clearly didnt affect his golf. "Obviously, it helped, because then I made 2 on the next hole," he said with a laugh.dddddddddddd. The turnaround came at the end of his round. He went for the green in two on the 17th and came up well short. With the tough 18th ahead of him, it looked as though he would lose his lead and perhaps even more ground. But he hit wedge to tap-in range for his par, and then made one only six birdies on the closing hole at Cherry Hills. "Its only Friday, so we still have two days to go," he said. "But it definitely helped my frame of mind going into the 18th tee, which today was playing quite hard. So it was nice to be able to get that up-and-down and then play 18 really well." Masters champion Bubba Watson had no trouble with the water on the 17th. He has taken on the cross bunkers both days with his driver, leaving him only an 8-iron Thursday and a 9-iron Friday. He made eagle the second time, shot 66 and was in the group at 4-under 136 that included DeLaet and Hideki Matsuyama, who came into the week at No. 30 in the FedEx Cup. The top 30 advance to the Tour Championship for a shot at the $10 million bonus. Palmer has been showing up on leaderboards over the last month -- share of the first-round lead at the PGA Championship and an opening 63 last week in Boston. He thought the greens might be softer because of the rain, and he was right. Palmer saw a few approach shots on No. 1 and told his caddie the course would be there for the taking. He waited until the end to grab it with four birdies in his last five holes. "It was a great way to finish," he said. "I was glad I was one of the ones that shot low." McIlroy also made a late surge after starting with one birdie, one bogey and 12 pars. He began to turn it around with a 30-foot birdie putt on the 15th, a 35-foot birdie putt on the 16th and a long two-putt birdie at the 17th. He shot the same score and felt entirely different -- finishing with two late bogeys one day, three late birdies the next. "I feel much better coming off the golf course because I birdied three of the last four holes," McIlroy said. "I sort of struggled to get anything going today. It was a little cooler, so the ball wasnt going quite as far, a little bit of wind ... even though the course was softer, it still played pretty tough."
