Clippers blow 7-point lead in last 49 seconds to lose

clippers-okc-espn-grab.jpgThe Clippers were really, really close to going up 3 games to 2 in their NBA playoffs series against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Then Chris Paul blundered, the refs missed a call, Paul got called for a foul that allowed Russell Westbrook to sink three free throws with six seconds to play — en route to a final 17-3 run for OKC — then Paul dropped the ball while attempting a final shot for LA. Now the Clippers face elimination back at Staples Center on Thursday.
