They had a 40-60 chance in LA and it came to fruition.
How do you come to this conclusion?
They had a game 7 style Game 6 in which they came out up early, up by 10 with CP having an awful first half and still lost.
Clips played the Spurs even all year last year. Same record almost. Same style of play. It was going to be almost a toss up regardless of who had HC. The Clippers won on the Spurs home floor four times last year, two in the postseason. One of which was an elimination game for SAS.
