LOS ANGELES —
Redick will be re-evaluated on Monday by hand specialist Dr. Steve Shin to determine what further course of treatment will be necessary. His injuries, which occurred in Friday night's 104-98 overtime win at Sacramento, complicated things even more for the Clippers with reserve forward Matt Barnes missing his sixth straight game due to an eye injury.
"The ligament looks intact, so they shouldn't have to operate on that," Redick said. "It's just the fragments of the bone. It's still swollen and there's some pain there. It's frustrating, because I have enjoyed those 17 games immensely."
Los Angeles used the same starting lineup in each of its first 16 games before Paul sat out Friday's game with a right hamstring strain. Rivers opted to continue using Jamal Crawford off the bench despite his 31-point outing at Sacramento, so Willie Green started in Redick's place and scored only two points in 15 minutes.
West capped a 13-3 run with an 18-footer and two free throws to give the Pacers their biggest lead, 74-60, with 4:48 left in the third. Los Angeles closed to 93-89 on Jordan's dunk off an alley-oop lob from backup point guard Darren Collison with 7:12 to play. Paul set up another one by Jordan with 1:05 to go, pulling the Clippers within 102-100.
"It's going to happen. I mean, the way CP can move the ball and throw the ball up, we're not going to take that lob away," George said. "But we're not going to give up 3s and we're not going to let their shooters get hot."
The Clippers had a chance to tie it again after a missed 3-point shot by Lance Stephenson at the other end. But Paul missed a 15-footer that rattled around the rim, and the Pacers made three of four free throws in the final 6.9 seconds to put it away.
