Clippers show strength, unity, emotion in Game 5 win over Warriors
The Clippers' 138th straight sellout crowd -- termed by Rivers "as good as I've ever seen" -- saw the home team capture a game they controlled from the moment Silver grabbed the microphone in New York. Jordan, who went scoreless in Game 4, texted his coach before Game 5 to say: "That wasn't me. I'll be back." He scored 25 points on 8 of 10 shooting, while Paul pitched in 20 and Crawford 19, plus high fives at the end for courtside fans. The Clippers went from drained to determined, and now they head to Golden State for Game 6 on Thursday, leading the series 3-2 and looking for a win.
They need one. They are one.
