Paul George scored 41 points as the Los Angeles Clippers kept their NBA Western Conference finals series alive with a 116-102 victory over the Phoenix Suns in Phoenix, Arizona last night.

Phoenix Suns were hoping to clinch series victory on home soil but the win for the Clippers has left the best-of-seven series poised at 3-2.
