The Los Angeles Clippers led by seven points with 50 seconds left in the 4th quarter, then the meltdown unraveled in front of our very own eyes.

The Oklahoma City Thunder rallied behind a three pointer and layup by Kevin Durant and clutch free throws for Russell Westbrook, who was fouled by Chris Paul with 6.4 seconds left. The most controversial play of the game, however, would be the Reggie Jackson steal and out of bounds call, which favored the Clippers after the replay (it looked like it went off Jackson’s hands) but was called Thunder ball.

Chris Paul could not even get a shot off with time expiring thanks to Reggie Jackson and Serge Ibaka’s defense on the last play. Los Angeles wound up losing the game 105-104 to go down 3-2 in the Western Conference Semifinals series.
Paul ended the game with 17 points and 14 assists, while Jamal Crawford scored 19 points and Blake Griffin led all Clippers scorers with 24 points and 17 rebounds.

The look of utter defeat.
On the other side of the ball, Westbrook carried the Thunder on his back with 38 points and Durantula ended the game with a double-double, 27 points and 10 rebounds.
Game 6 is this Thursday in Los Angeles.
