Shit, this is the first-ever playoff entry the Clips have had at the dopehouse since we’ve been around (their last playoffs appearance was in 2006, a satisfactory year before the site’s inception). Better after than never, right? Anyways, with last night’s massacre of the Lakers at the hands of the Thunder now in the books it’s time for my favorite NBA team to take the stage. I’ll be honest: I don’t think they stand a chance yet that won’t stop me from rooting for them (as I have been doing for years now… many, many painful years). Anyways, tip-off is 9:30pm EST on TNT.
