PHOENIX — Darren Collison and Blake Griffin scored 23 points and the Los Angeles Clippers rallied from a 17-point third-quarter deficit to beat the Phoenix Suns 110-108 Wednesday night.

Chris Paul added 20 points, including a 32-foot 3-pointer just before the shot clock was to expire to put the Clippers up for good 108-106 with 1:48 to play.

Eight Suns players reached double figures, led by Marcus Morris' 16 points.

Phoenix fell into a three-way tie with Memphis and Dallas for the last two playoff spots in the West. Phoenix used a 22-5 run to lead 91-74 with 1:49 left in the third period and was up 91-78 entering the fourth.

Griffin had been listed as doubtful for the game with back spasms.
