Are the LA Clippers' hopes of extending their playoff streak to seven consecutive years already dashed? Clippers F Wesley Johnson, who averaged 13.2 points over his previous five games, scored just four points Monday on 2-of-7 shooting from the field.

The Clippers' third win in a row for the first time since opening the season 4-0 came at a price. If not, they have some tough decisions ahead.

"It didn't look good obviously, but we just have to wait and see", Doc Rivers said (via the Los Angeles Times).

Pope led the Lakers with 29 points. Williams hit a 3-pointer and got fouled on another attempt, making three free throws, before Griffin's one-handed baseline jam.

Griffin remained in the game on the ensuing Clippers possession, during which he missed a 10-foot hook shot. There still has not been a timetable announced for the return of Danilo Gallinari and Milos Teodosic is out until at least after Christmas.

As ESPN's Bobby Marks noted, help may not be on the way unless the Clippers are willing to pay the luxury tax.

The Clippers' next game is Friday (AEDT) against the Jazz in L.A. "We needed every point Lou gave us".

An equally subdued Griffin left the locker room following the game without speaking to reporters.

The Clippers have been riddled with injuries this season, including season-ending microfracture knee surgery to starting point guard Patrick Beverley.

Since being drafted by the Clippers in 2009, Griffin has been injured numerous times in his National Basketball Association career.

Rivers appeared to have fallen on Griffin, whose knee got twisted as he landed on his back. Griffin fell onto his back in pain.
