It is closeout time.

When the 2019-20 Clippers roster was put together, the goal was to compete for an NBA championship. The reigning Finals MVP (a two-time champion) and a top-3 finisher for MVP and DPOY in 2018-19 didn’t come together for anything less.

But there are steps to take en route to that goal, markers that this team has not been able to hit before. The Clippers had their highest regular-season finish in franchise history, earning the no. 2 seed for the first time. And now, they are one game away from achieving another milestone: making the conference finals.

The Clippers made the conference semifinals three times this past decade. Each time, they won more games than the previous effort, but they topped out at three in 2015 despite leading the Rockets 3-1 in that series. This current roster has made it clear that there is no celebration for making the conference finals, that their sights are set much higher, but it cannot be overlooked that a historic moment is on the line today. Let’s see if the Clippers can seize it.

Here is what you need to know for how to watch Game 5.
