LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chris Paul’s running jumper with a tenth of a second left gave the Los Angeles Clippers a 93-91 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night and a 2-0 lead in their first-round playoff series.

Both teams stayed on the court while the referees reviewed the play. It was declared good, leaving Memphis a tick of the clock to inbound the ball but not enough to get off a final shot.

Paul finished with 24 points and nine assists and Blake Griffin added 21 points and eight rebounds.

Paul carried the Clippers in the final 3:46, scoring eight straight points, including a basket that gave them a 91-89 lead with 1:20 to play.

Mike Conley scored a career playoff high 28 points while leading the Grizzlies’ fourth-quarter charge that came up just short.
