Weary Clippers fall short against Denver

Redick and Chris Paul pumped their fists. Blake Griffin put his right hand high in the air.That the Clippers’ stars were so invested in a December game against a sub .500 team was certainly notable. That the three looked more like men’s wear catalog models was a bit more newsworthy.Injuries or not, fourth game in five nights or first game after a week’s rest, Monday was a win the Clippers needed. And, they didn’t get it.Denver came back from seven down in the fourth quarter to beat the Clippers 106-102 at Staples Center.
