They began the game huddled in a concrete hallway, arms locked, bodies swaying, desperately begging each other to stay united through the storm. "It's just us . . . only us . . . we're all we got!" They ended the game trudging through the same hallway in single file, heads down, eyes vacant, sighs heavy, their earlier hopes lost in the echoes of the silence. The Clippers tried. Oh, did they try. One day after being dragged into the center of national outrage with the release of an audio recording containing racist statements purportedly made by their owner, Donald Sterling, the Clippers tried to play through the storm.

Blame it on missed shots. Blame it on it being a game the Clippers didn't have to win. Or blame it on the Donald Sterling distraction. But wherever you place the blame, the realization is this first-round playoff is now a best-of-three series. The Golden State Warriors pretty easily dominated the Clippers, 118-97, at Oracle Arena in Oakland on Sunday afternoon. The best-of-seven series is now tied, 2-2. Game 5 will be Tuesday night at Staples Center. If the series goes to a deciding seventh game it will be Saturday at Staples.

Lob City has once again become Sloppy City. The Clippers are once again mired in a mess caused by their owner, Donald Sterling. And once again, only the very future of the franchise is at stake. In an interview this month with The Times' T.J. Simers, Sterling essentially admitted what everyone already knew -- the decision to fire coach Vinny Del Negro was Chris Paul's decision. It was a great scoop, but it was no surprise. The Clippers were acting like any NBA team that caters to their best player.

It came without the aid of a lob. Against Clippers point guard Chris Paul. The Lakers' All-Star guard, now in his 17th season, deflected a pass by Paul near the free-throw line, tracked it down along the sideline and went the length of the court before throwing down a one-handed dunk over Paul. You can see it all unfold in the video above.

OAKLAND - Golden State's shots kept bouncing off the rim. Some nicked the front, others clanged off the side and still others caromed high off the back. It only seemed as though DeAndre Jordan was there to grab every rebound. The Clippers center repeatedly extended his massive hands to seize the ball, doing it for the final time with 1.2 seconds left Thursday night at Oracle Arena when he grasped Stephen Curry's airballed three-pointer, flung a pass to teammate Chris Paul and raised his arm in triumph.

Chris Paul was direct and to the point when asked how much of a concern his right hamstring was for him. “None,” he said Monday at the Clippers' shoot-around in preparation for Game 2 against the Golden State Warriors in their first-round Western Conference playoff series. Paul was seen grabbing his hamstring late in the second quarter of Saturday's game after he chased down Warriors guard Stephen Curry and knocked the ball out of bounds. Paul came out of the game with 36.2 seconds left in the second quarter, then went right back in after the Warriors turned the ball over.
