After being thoroughly outplayed for over 40 minutes, the Los Angeles Clippers fought back.
Russell Westbrook, who scored 27 points, missed a 3-pointer and Serge Ibaka's tip attempt was too late at the buzzer, allowing the Clippers to salvage a game they trailed until the final 1:23.
They had just persevered through seven exhausting playoff games amid enormous distractions leading to their owner's lifetime banishment from the NBA. A franchise that once redefined losing was a winner despite it all — and there's no telling how much farther these new Clippers can go.
When the final buzzer sounded on the longest week of the Los Angeles Clippers' careers, they felt more exhaustion than elation. While coach Doc Rivers high-fived fans and pumped his fist at the crowd, Blake Griffin and Chris Paul quietly congratulated each other.
On an exceptional, emotional night, the Los Angeles Clippers returned to their "safe haven" and moved to the brink of winning just their third playoff series since Donald Sterling bought the team in 1981.
Blake Griffin buried bank shots, turnaround jumpers and spinning layups. DeAndre Jordan gobbled up rebounds and opposing shots, often flexing his muscles and letting out a roar.
Chris Paul pounded his chest and shouted toward the Golden State Warriors' bench. Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan high-fived, and the Los Angeles Clippers soaked in the silence of the once-roaring, gold-shirt wearing crowd as they walked off the court together.
The Golden State Warriors stumbled out of the gate, missing their first eight shots while falling behind by 11 points and forcing coach Mark Jackson to call two timeouts to steady his young team.
Blake Griffin won't be playing in Portland, regardless of whether his 16th technical of the season is rescinded.
The excuses came ready made for the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night. Blake Griffin and Jamal Crawford were out with injuries. They were playing their fourth game of a five-game road trip.
The Clippers' success isn't just because of Blake Griffin's scoring and Chris Paul's playmaking. The dramatic improvement in rebounding has been an integral part as well.
Coming off a resounding victory over the Lakers in which they posted the largest winning margin in franchise history, the Los Angeles Clippers had to fight to the bitter end against the Atlanta Hawks after squandering an 11-point lead in the fourth quarter.
The Clippers proved again that they can go nose-to-nose with the Houston Rockets and defend their 1-2 punch of Dwight Howard and James Harden.
Blake Griffin has become the first player in the history of the Los Angeles Clippers' franchise with three consecutive games of 30 or more points. And he's made it look easy, even without Chris Paul's help.
Despite playing their 10th game in 16 nights, the Los Angeles Clippers were able to shrug off a sluggish start and find enough energy to pull away from the Jazz.
"For us to withstand their biggest punch and keep our defense up," Jordan said, "I thought that was the key to us winning the game."
