May 3, 2015:
LA Clippers 111, San Antonio 109
Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Chris Paul's acrobatic go-ahead basket with one second remaining lifted the Los Angeles Clippers to a 111-109 win over the San Antonio Spurs in a Game 7 thriller on Saturday night. After Tim Duncan's free throws tied the game with 8.8 seconds left, Paul had the ball just inside halfcourt with Danny Green draped all over him. Paul dribbled to his right to get a step on Green and alertly leaned farther right to avoid Duncan, flicking the ball in to put the Clippers in front. Boris Diaw's ensuing lob inbounds pass into the lane intended for Kawhi Leonard was batted away by Matt Barnes, ending the game. Paul exited at the 1:52 mark of the first quarter with a left hamstring strain before returning with 6:27 remaining in the second. Despite the injury, Paul managed to score 18 of his 27 points in the second half. He was 9-of-13 from the field overall and knocked down five of his six attempts from beyond the arc.
