Every morning, we will give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
1: I never went anywhere
The Clippers have the best record in the NBA and are on a 16-game win streak. Is there any more proof necessary to say that the Clippers are the best team in the NBA right now?
Not a statement about where the Clippers might be in May or June, but this team is just figuring out how to win and doing it in amazing ways.
No win during this streak may have been as impressive as the come-from-behind victory the Clippers pulled out against the Jazz. Los Angeles erased a 16-point deficit in the third quarter in a very tough building to win at in Salt Lake City. Sure, there was some help. A very ticky tack foul on Al Jefferson as he hedged on Chris Paul as he whizzed on by enabled L.A. to go to the foul line and take the lead for good.
Kyle Lowry's forced 3-pointer to win the game was no good as he tried desperately to get the foul call in return.
