LOS ANGELES (AP) - Darren Collison scored eight of his 18 points in the final 2:58, and the Los Angeles Clippers ralled to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 101-99 on Sunday to tie the Western Conference semifinal series 2-2.

Russell Westbrook, who scored 27 points, missed a 3-pointer and Serge Ibaka’s tip attempt was too late at the buzzer, allowing the Clippers to salvage a game they trailed until the final 1:23.

Blake Griffin led Los Angeles with 25 points, making 9 of 11 free throws, and Chris Paul had 23 points and 10 assists. Jamal Crawford added 18 points. DeAndre Jordan had 14 rebounds, helping the Clippers win the boards, 45-43 - the first time in 11 playoff games the Thunder were outrebounded.

Kevin Durant scored 40 points, hitting 15 of 18 free throws, for the Thunder.

Game 5 is Tuesday night in Oklahoma City.

PACERS 95, WIZARDS 92

WASHINGTON (AP) - Paul George had a career playoff-high 39 points and added 12 rebounds to lead Indiana back from a 19-point deficit and past Washington in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The Pacers lead the series 3-1 and can close it out Tuesday night at home.

George played 46 minutes and scored 28 points in the second half, including making six of his franchise playoff-record-tying seven 3-pointers. Roy Hibbert had 17 points and nine rebounds, continuing his recent surge after a poor-as-can-be start to the series.

Bradley Beal led Washington with 20 points.
