Clippers win by 10, lead series 3-2

clippers-jordan-crawford.jpgIt's probably reaching to say we're all Clippers fans tonight, but I choose to believe most are happy to hear that the Clips defeated the Golden State Warriors 113-103 at Staples Center. DeAndre Jordan led the Clippers with 25 points, a personal playoff high, and 18 rebounds. Chris Paul scored 20 points. Game 6 is back in Oakland on Thursday night with the Clippers poised to win a playoff series for just the third time since Donald Sterling bought the team 33 years ago.
