Its do-or-die for the Los Angeles Clippers. If they lose their April 29 match with the Portland Trail Blazers, they’re out of the 2016 NBA Playoffs! HollywoodLife.com wants you to see this crucial match so click to watch!
It’s go time! It’s almost the end of the first round of the 2016 NBA Playoffs. The Portland Trail Blazers just need one more win over the Los Angeles Clippers to advance to the next round. Will L.A. make the epic comeback, or are their dreams as busted as Blake Griffin’s, 27, leg?
The home field advantage might help Portland put away the Clippers for good when they host Los Angeles on April 29. This might be the last time a team from Los Angeles takes the court in this NBA season, so be ready when action kicks off at 10:30 P.M. EST.
Sadly, Blake Griffin is out for the rest of the post-season, even if the Clippers go all the way to the NBA finals. He aggravated a left quadriceps injury, according to ESPN. This is after he busted up his hand after punching a team’s equipment manager in the face. Sadly, Blake’s not the only one on the injured list, as Chris Paul, 30, is out with a right hand fracture.

Los Angeles took a commanding lead, winning the first two games by at least twenty points. However, Portland has blazed back into the lead, thanks to deadly offense from Damian Lillard, 25, and C.J. McCollum, 24, per ESPN. Show your Portland pride by getting an official jersey here.
Though their backs are against the wall, the Clippers aren’t giving up! “What are our options?” Clippers forward Jamal Crawford, 36, told USA Today. “We can either stand and fight, or just lay down. We are not going to do the latter.”
Whoever wins this series, they may have to bask in the glory of victory as much as they can. The winner of Portland/Los Angeles has to face the record-breaking Golden State Warriors in the second round. Even with legend-in-the-making Steph Curry, 28, healing from a knee injury, the Warriors are near invincible. If Portland prevails or the Clippers claim a win in the clutch, their joy may be short lived.
