When you consider the decades of NBA history, the Los Angeles Clippers can be considered one of the worst franchises in the league.

With a boring history and a habit for failure, they have been known more as a team living in the shadow of their rival more so than as a big threat in their Conference.

But this season, they are changing that narrative by winning big.

Sans Kawhi Leonard, and against a Jazz team that has played great all year long, the Clippers won Game 6 to advance to their first-ever Conference Finals.

Needless to say, things got a bit hectic on Twitter with reactions from fans and media all over the world.

The Clippers have had a pretty wild road so far. They came back from down 2-3 in Round 1, then won four straight after going down 0-2 in Round 2. But perhaps even more exciting than the past is the future for this Clippers team.

To advance to the Finals, they'll have to battle against the Suns and a familiar face: Chris Paul.

So, while the NBA world is taking a moment to recognize this great moment in Clipper history, the job is not yet done, and the biggest challenges are yet to come.
