Western Conference Semi-Finals – Los Angeles Clippers v Oklahoma City Thunder – Game 3
Saturday 10th May @ 12.30pm on ESPN
What happens when the league’s number one offense (Los Angeles Clippers - 107.9 ppg) comes up against the four time scoring champion Kevin Durant … Amazing Happens.
Chris Paul has been hampered by lingering hamstring issues, a bad problem to have against OKC’s speed, in particular his freakishly athletic match-up Russel Westbrook. Blake Griffin’s mid-range jumper has made a surprisingly effective impact over the course of the season but the NBA leader in blocks, Serge Ibaka, may be able to match the physicality Blake brings to his game.
‘Mr Unreliable’, Kevin Durant, became ‘Mr. Undeniable’ in games six and seven against Memphis and without the pestering of a Tony Allen like presence the Clippers will have their work cut out in containing him.
