Many of the so-called experts missed their predictions by a mile. They basically has written off the Clippers
at the beginning of the series mostly giving them 5 games to last the series. Others have reluctantly predicted 6 games in favor of Memphis and very few, yes very few, has given the Clippers a chance to last for 7 games. When the Clippers were ahead 3-1, the experts were all scratching their heads and were saying the Clippers were "lucky" and should have been down at least 3-1 instead. After game 2, pretty much everybody was saying that Memphis will prevail in LA and take least 1 game and get back their home court advantage. LA won 2 in a row and once more the Clips proved them wrong! After game 5 with CP3 and Blake injured, the experts mockingly predicted the debacle of the Clippers (they're the Clippers anyway) and predicted a loopsided game. Again they missed it by a mile and the Clippers almost winning the game even with 4, yes 4 players (3 starters..2 were superstars) injured losing only by 2 points. Of course, now there's no missing a prediction of a 7th game that will feature an emotionally drained and devastated Clipper team riddled with injury (add Mo to the list)facing the Grizzly bullies in Memphis (somebody called this place "a sewer") and has given the Clippers no chance whatsoever.
Could it be that the experts are wrong again? Could it be that the resiliency of the Clippers ala "Rocky" would prevail and deliver the knockout punch in the last round?
Win or loss the Clippers have shown their heart and their toughness in this series.
Will the "gods' of basketball favor them and reward them with a gift?
I still say GO ClIPPERS...rise up and win!!!!!!!
