Clippers play a game of ice and fire
NBA 

A red-hot J.J. Redick scored 27 points as the Clippers downed the Celtics 119-106, while DeAndre Jordan became just the 4th player in the last 50 seasons to make 3 or fewer FT when attempting at least 15. The others are Wilt Chamberlain (three times), Chris Dudley and Shaquille O'Neal.

Final: Spurs 103, Grizzlies 89
NBA 

The closest the Grizzlies ever got to the Spurs was a 0-0 tie. The Memphis loss, combined with an earlier Houston win over Washington, slides the Grizzlies to third in the West. If the playoffs started today, they'd face ... the Spurs, who've won 13 of their past 16. Box score

Grizzlies have lost 3 straight by double figures for first time since Jan. 2012. Memphis now 9-10 in last 19 and fall behind HOU into 3rd.

Already, it looks like we're about to have a game with two teams that can't guard each other.

Indiana Pacers @Pacers

C.J. Watson drives and finishes the reverse layup to put the #Pacers on top with 8:18 left in the 4th quarter. IND 86, DAL 84

Thunder at Suns, 9 P.M. ET
NBA 

It's desperation time at the bottom of the Western playoff pile. The Thunder look to regroup after losing Kevin Durant for the rest of the season, while a loss would put Phoenix 3 back of OKC for the eighth seed and give the Thunder the tiebreaker. Follow live
