LOS ANGELES -- After being thoroughly outplayed for over 40 minutes, the Los Angeles Clippers fought back. John Cominsky Womens Jersey . Leading the way was a player not known for coming up big in the clutch. Darren Collison scored eight of his 18 points in the final 2:58, rallying the Clippers past the Oklahoma City Thunder 101-99 on Sunday to tie the Western Conference semifinal series 2-2. "Even though we didnt play well throughout the game, we were able to get a win," Collison said. "That feels more impressive than anything we did." Russell Westbrook, who scored 27 points, missed a 3-pointer and Serge Ibakas tip attempt was too late at the buzzer, allowing the Clippers to salvage a game they trailed until the final 1:23. "It was a good look," Westbrook said. "Just didnt go in." Blake Griffin led Los Angeles with 25 points, making 9 of 11 free throws. 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. "We just willed this one. We found a way," said Chris Paul, who had 23 points and 10 assists. Kevin Durant scored 40 points, hitting 15 of 18 free throws, for the Thunder. "We let this one slip away," he said. "We could have took control of the series." Game 5 is Tuesday night in Oklahoma City. "We were almost on the mat and we got off of it. We didnt get pinned," Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. "Theyre seething right now. They had an opportunity to go up 3-1 and now its an even series." It was the 14th comeback -- and largest yet -- by the Clippers this season after trailing by double digits. They rallied from 12 points down in the second quarter of Game 7 to oust Golden State in the first round. "This is one of the best ones yet," Paul said. "Darren Collison was amazing. You just got to love a guy like that who plays with so much heart and never gives up." The Clippers had no answer for Durant and Westbrook until midway through the fourth quarter. That dynamic duo drove the lane with abandon, drew fouls and made free throws in leading the Thunder to an early 22-point lead. Durants three-point play early in the fourth extended the Thunders lead to 15 points, and they were still up by 10 with 7:44 to go. But the comeback Clippers were not to be denied. "Everybody kept telling each other, Chip away, chip away," Griffin said. "That was kind of our mentality for the rest of the game. We just kept fighting." The Clippers stole a page out of the Thunders playbook, switching to a smaller lineup that included Collison and Danny Granger, who helped disrupt the Thunders rebounding late. Paul willed his team back into it, scoring six straight points to get the Clippers within six. Griffin, who was saddled with five fouls, made three of four free throws before Collison got hot. "The whole time Im thinking, We cant be down 3-1, we just cant be down 3-1 going to Oklahoma," Collison said. With the game tied at 97, Collison scored the Clippers final four points on layups. Crawford passed to a streaking Collison for a fast-break conversion on the second one for a 101-97 lead with 32 seconds left. Westbrook scored for the Thunder, but after Griffin missed, Westbrook did too to end the game. "Did that really just happen?" a still stunned Crawford said. Paul missed all five of his shots in the third, when Griffin picked up three fouls to give him five, and Crawford and Jordan each got their third. Ibaka, who shot 9 of 10 in the Thunders Game 3 win, got his fourth foul, along with Westbrook in the third. The Clippers came as close as eight points before Reggie Jacksons 3-pointer beat the shot clock to keep the Thunder ahead 75-63 going into the fourth. The Thunder had the Clippers on their heels from the opening tip, with Oklahoma City shooting 65 per cent in building a 22-point lead. Oklahoma City outscored the Clippers 32-15 in the first; the fewest points theyve allowed in a quarter of a playoff game. NOTES: NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, who banned Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million after recordings of him making racist comments surfaced, attended the game, sitting next to Magic Johnson.

LAKE LOUISE, Alta. -- Lindsey Vonn was cleared to get back on a World Cup course for downhill training, the latest step as she works to return from a right knee injury and get ready for the Sochi Olympics. Now Vonn -- and the rest of the skiing world -- will wait to find out whether shell actually be racing by the end of this week. The four-time overall World Cup champion and reigning Olympic downhill gold medallist is expected to start in Wednesdays first official training session at Lake Louise, the U.S. Ski Team said Tuesday. The team added that not until Thursday would a decision be made on whether Vonn will return to competition for the first time since tearing right knee ligaments in a high-speed crash at the world championships last February. The scheduled races at Lake Louise -- a site Vonn has dominated in the past, including three-victory sweeps in 2011 and 2012 -- are downhills on Friday and Saturday, with a super-G on Sunday. Vonn will start 10th in Wednesdays training run. "Shes trying to come back as quick as possible, and it just happens to be that Lake Louise is on the (schedule) right now," U.S. womens coach Alex Hoedlmoser said. "Its a very good place for her to come back and try because shes very familiar with the course and had success here." The U.S. Ski Team said Vonn "felt strong" after doing super-G training in her hometown of Vail, Colo., last weekend, and that her surgeon, Dr. Bill Sterettt, feels "her knee is stable. Kaleb McGary Jersey. " "I hope she is in good shape. I hope shes fit," said Atle Skaardal, the womens race director for the International Ski Federation (FIS). "Because racing downhill is not something you do if you are not in too good shape." Originally, Tuesday was supposed to be the first day of downhill training, but that was called off because of travel delays from the womens previous World Cup stop at Beaver Creek, Colo. Vonn was working toward a return to racing there last week, until wiping out during a training run on Nov. 19, and partially tearing a ligament in her surgically repaired knee. The American told The Associated Press over the weekend that she needs another operation on her knee but is trying to put it off as long as possible in order to be able to ski at the Sochi Games, which begin in a little more than two months. Vonn is three race wins from equaling the World Cup womens record of 62 held by Austrias Annemarie Moser-Proell. Of her 59 career World Cup race victories, 14 have come at Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies. She is so successful -- and comfortable -- on this particular slope, she petitioned FIS in October 2012 to allow her to compete in a mens World Cup race at Lake Louise. That request was turned down. "This is kind of her playground here," Skaardal said, "and she could probably not ask for a better place to do a comeback." ' ' '
