Los Angeles Clippers beat Utah and win series
The Los Angeles Clippers are advancing to the Western Conference finals. While Kawhi Leonard was out of the lineup with an injury in Game 6, the Clippers got the job done and advanced to the conference finals for the first time in years with a 131-119 win.
With the win, they will now face off against the Phoenix Suns for the right to play in the NBA Finals.
In the 50-year history of the Los Angeles Clippers organization, the team had never advanced to the Western Conference finals.
Down 25 points in Game 6 against the Utah Jazz on Friday, it seemed their chances of doing so were slipping with the prospect of a Game 7 in Utah looming.
That all changed thanks to one man: Terance Mann.
Starting in place of the injured Kawhi Leonard, Mann powered a classic comeback to send the Clippers to the conference finals after a 131-119 win.
The second-year player — selected 48th overall in the 2019 draft — scored 20 of his career-high 39 points in the third as the Clippers erased what had been a 75-50 Utah lead.
