The Clippers scored 19 unanswered points against Denver over a 4:10 stretch that spanned the first and second quarters. The spurt was fueled largely by the second unit of Sebastian Telfair, Mardy Collins, Rasual Butler, Craig Smith and DeAndre Jordan — along with big contributions from Baron D[...]
