Chris Kaman scored 18 points and Sebastian Telfair added 15 to lead the Los Angeles Clippers to a 108-96 exhibition victory over Maccabi Tel Aviv on Tuesday. Blake Griffin, the No. 1 overall draft pick, was 6 of 7 from the field and finished with 13 points and 10 rebounds in 28 minutes for the Clippers. It was the first start, and only the second game, this preseason for Telfair, who had been bothered by a sore hamstring. Doron Perkins had a triple-double for Maccabi: 16 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. Chuck Eidson led Maccabi with 18 points. The Clippers shot 54.5 percent (42 of 77) from the field, while holding Maccabi to 43.7 percent shooting (38 of 87). The game was tied 42-42 with 4 minutes to play in the first half when the Clippers went on a 25-7 run. This was the second of Maccabi's two preseason games against NBA teams. It lost 106-91 to the New York Knicks on Sunday. Maccabi coach Pinhas Gershon caused a stir in New York when he was ejected after receiving a second technical foul in the third quarter. He refused to leave the court at Madison Square Garden for almost 8 minutes. On Tuesday, the colorful Gershon spoke frequently to the replacement officials, but without incident. Before the game's start, there was a moment of silence for former Maccabi executive Moni Fanan, who Jerusalem police said hanged himself at his home on Monday. Fanan, 63, managed the club for 16 seasons and won 15 Israel League titles before stepping down a year ago after clashing with team officials.
