Default Clippers win Game 7 in first round vs Warriors

When the final buzzer sounded on the longest two weeks 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.

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.

Griffin scored 24 points, Paul had 22 points and 14 assists, and the Clippers outlasted the Golden State Warriors 126-121 in Game 7 on Saturday night to win their first-round playoff series.

Default Re: Clippers win Game 7 in first round vs Warriors

The Clippers’ resilience began last week when TMZ released a nine-minute phone conversation between Sterling and a female companion named V. Stiviano in which the two argued endlessly. Sterling sounded upset both that Stiviano posted a picture of herself and Lakers legend Magic Johnson on Instagram and that she brought black friends to Clippers games. Stiviano sounded upset Sterling would make such dismissive remarks while denying that they reeked of racial insensitivity. The Clippers sounded upset for all sorts of legitimate reasons. The majority of their team consists of black players. The majority of the NBA promotes diversity. This controversy came on the heels of a competitive first-round series against Golden State that already entailed concerns surrounding their perimeter shooting, up-tempo offense and contentious rivalry.
