With their epic collapse in Game 6 at Staples Center on Thursday, the Clippers will have a difficult task in trying to defeat the Houston Rockets in Game 7 on Sunday at 12:30 p.m. at Toyota Center in Houston.
Clippers center DeAndre Jordan knows it.
“We have a job to do,” he said. “We have to be able to go in there with a tough Houston crowd and try to get a win.”
The Rockets will be trying to become just the ninth team in NBA history to come back to win a seven-game series after being down 3-1.
The Clippers led Game 6 by an 87-68 count with 3:04 to play in the third quarter before the Rockets outscored them 51-20 the rest of the way, defeating the Clippers 119-107.
