Chris Paul scored eight points in overtime and Mo Williams made two free throws with 7.2 seconds left in the OT to help the Clippers escape with a 101-97 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 4 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Monday night at Staples Center.

The Clippers lead the best-of-seven series, 3-1, and can close it out with a victory Wednesday night in Memphis.

Paul, the closer the Clippers can't seem to live without, nearly had a triple-double with 27 points, nine rebounds and seven assists.
