NBA PLAYOFFS: Nuggets win, avoid elimination
May 01, 2013 10:00 AM

Kenneth Faried brought the energy and the Denver Nuggets rediscovered their toughness in time to stave off elimination Tuesday night with a 107-100 win over the Golden State Warriors. The Nuggets slowed down Golden State’s guards and jumped out to a 22-point lead before weathering the Warriors’ frenetic fourth-quarter rally.

Golden State leads the series 3-2.

 

Grizzlies 103, Clippers 93: Zach Randolph scored 10 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter and the Grizzlies capitalized on Blake Griffin’s ankle injury to beat the Clippers, taking a 3-2 lead in their first-round playoff series.

Mike Conley added 20 points for the Grizzlies, who will try to wrap it up Friday.

Chris Paul led Los Angeles with 35 points.
