Vilified no end for having lost a sure-win 3-1 lead against the Denver Nuggets in the Bubble Playoffs last year, the Clippers bounced back not once, but twice against the vastly-improved Mavericks. The team simply refused to give up in the face of extreme adversity. It was a character win that certainly won the hearts of many.
Today, the Clippers and the Mavs square off for the final time this season. Whoever wins advances to the next round, the loser goes home for a long vacation. How this show will end will depend much on the enigma that is the Clippers.
The Western Frontier has the heavyweight gunners in the league. Watch them as they try to knock each other out of the playoff picture.
Who will be crowned King of the ‘New Norm’ kingdom? Who will survive the fast and furious fight to the finals? In a battle of quick skirmishes, fast schedules and less time to mend ailing bones, the team with the deeper bench will win it all.
