The Phoenix Suns beat the Los Angeles Clippers in a close and low scoring battle to the end. For the first time in the series, neither team was able to score over 100 points. The Suns got the win 84-80, so hopefully you bet the under. In the end, it was Chris Paul knocking down back-to-back clutch free throws to seal the deal. Clippers owner Steve Ballmer could be seen court-side experiencing a great amount of physical pain upon realizing his team was going to lose the game.

Chris Paul is One Win Away From First Ever NBA Finals
This truly is a surreal moment in recent NBA History. When the Houston Rockets traded Chris Paul many assumed his days of title contention were done. Despite Paul having an obvious impact on the Thunder by unexpectedly taking them to the playoffs, no one considered that team a true title contender.
Then when Paul was traded again, this time to Phoenix, it seemed as though he was destined to close out his career in the shadows of the two LA teams while having no real chance at ever competing for or capturing an NBA title. Yet here we are, with the Suns one win away from a trip to the Finals. Wild.
