The Clippers had a chance to take control of their series with the Mavericks in Wednesday night's Game 5 in Los Angeles, but instead they stunk up the joint in the second half and got blown out, 123-93, to fall behind 3-2 as the series shifts to Dallas for Friday night's Game 6.

The Clippers were without Kawhi Leonard in Game 5, as he continues to deal with an injury to his right knee. Los Angeles had won the other two games in the series that Leonard had missed, which makes Wednesday night's performance even harder for fans to understand.

Paul Pierce didn't hold back on the Clippers on FS1's Unidisputed, calling them a moody team.

The Clippers, who won Game 4 in Dallas without Leonard, will need to turn things completely around in Game 6 or their season could come to an abrupt end.
