The best first round match-up of the series just get’s better as the Los Angeles Clippers won game six against the San Antonio Spurs to push to a game seven at the Staples Center according to Fox Sports.
It was a come behind win for the Clippers down 10 in the first half to hold on to the lead in the fourth quarter. The three stars Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan all had big games in the win. They live and die with they give every night with a below average bench. Clippers Shooting Guard J.J. Reddick explained the grit they shown during the game.
We showed great resolve. We took a good punch,” said J.J. Redick. “There’s no question they played well. (Marco) Belinelli played great and hit some difficult shots. Doc talked before the game about just trusting our system and trusting each other. We did that tonight for 48 minutes, and it worked.
Griffin had 26 points, 12 rebounds and a career high 4 blocks. He has been the most consistent player on the team this series despite big key moments in turnovers and missed shots at the end of games. He understands the mental toughness they shown against the defending champions.
We gutted it out. Everybody played hard,” said Griffin. “Guys hit shots when we needed them, too. Guys played defense. Guys came up with stops. We did everything we talked about before the game.
It all counts to one more game left to determine who faces the Houston Rockets in the second round.
One game. We’ve got nothing to lose,” said Griffin. “We’ve got to play hard. We’ve been in several Game 7s before. I’ll take our team every time.
