LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chris Paul scored nine of his 19 points in overtime and added a season-high 15 assists, carrying the Los Angeles Clippers to an 87-83 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Sunday.

Blake Griffin had 17 points and 11 rebounds, and he tipped in Paul’s missed layup with 19 seconds left in regulation before Paul swiped the ball from Tayshaun Prince to send it to overtime.

After hitting two long jumpers early in overtime, Paul capped a dominant performance by grabbing control of a jump-ball tip and getting it to Randy Foye for a layup with 7 seconds left. He added two free throws with 3.4 seconds left as Los Angeles finished 3-3 in a stretch of six home games in eight days.
