The Clippers were down 82-66 when Darren Collision grabbed an offensive rebound with 9 minutes 6 seconds left in the fourth quarter to give Los Angeles a 2.2 percent chance of winning the game.
The Clippers would win, 101-99, and tie the Western Conference semifinal series with Oklahoma City at two games apiece.
WHAT. A. COMEBACK.

But that wouldn’t be the only
meltdown comeback on Sunday. The Pacers would commit a shot clock turnover in the fourth with six minutes left, making it look like the Washington Wizards’ nine-point lead was safe. After all, the Wizards had a 91.6 win expectancy. Then, well, the curse of D.C. sports took over.
If you’re somehow frustrated, overall, with the Zards being down 3-1 to the Pacers, then you haven’t rooted for this team for very long.
