It is coming down to the wire in the Pacific Division. The Los Angeles Clippers are now tied with the Los Angeles Clippers after the Los Angeles Lakers lost to the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday night. The problem is that the Lakers own the tie breaker meaning the Clippers have to end the season a full game up on the Lakers to claim the Pacific Division title. I want to mention the last two games the Clips have played. They first did what they had to do against Golden State Warriors and defeated Golden State 112-104. It was a good win because the Warriors had previously token two of the last three games against the Clips. The game was very entertaining as both offenses were hitting on all cylinders. Chris Paul was absolutely superb with 28 and 13. Clips next matchup was against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The game did not disappoint.
The Clippers were 2-1 versus the Thunder coming into the game. In those two wins the Clippers looked as if they matchup very well against the Thunder. Early on the Thunder looked to be in control taking a nine point lead into halftime. The second half was all Clippers; they quickly cut into the lead and by the middle of the fourth the Clips had the momentum on their side. It felt as if every Clipper was making a play. It was Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Caron Butler, Randy Foye, Eric Bledsoe, and Mo Williams all on fire! The defense was awesome as well; they virtually shut down both Thunder superstars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook in the second half. It was a fantastic win for the Clippers.
The Clippers have five game remaining; at Denver, at Phoenix, versus New Orleans, at Atlanta, and at New York. The only really tough game in that schedule is Denver. The others look winnable. Cannot wait to see what unfolds. GO CLIPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
