Everyone steps up for LA to put series at 2-1. The LA Clippers are getting more and more experienced with must-win games, and on Saturday, they notched another victory in them in the 2021 NBA Playoffs, beating the Utah Jazz 132-106 at Staples Center in Game 3.
The Clippers are down 0-2 against the Jazz in two very disappointingly winnable games, but Kawhi Leonard knows they aren't out yet. Just two weeks ago, the Clippers overcame an 0-2 deficit on the road against the Dallas Mavericks, and now they'll have to do something similar again.
Over the past two seasons, the Los Angeles Clippers have been the laughing stock of the NBA. After getting bounced early in the 2020 playoffs, fans clowned the organization for what they called the "Clippers curse," and calls for the team to start fresh were increasing around the community.
