Not This Date In History: A Perspective

from: Elias Sports Bureau
The Clippers defeated the Nets on Monday to improve to 7-3 this season. It’s only the second time since the Clippers moved to Southern California from Buffalo for the 1978-79 season that they won at least seven of their first 10 games of a season; they started 8-2 in 2005-06.

What Elias Didn’t Say:
Those 2005-06 Clippers beat the Denver Nuggets in the first round of the playoffs, four games to one.

The date: May 16, 2006
Game 5 of the Western Conference Semi-Finals
Those Clippers, with the series tied 2 games each, had battled back in the fourth quarter to tie the game and send it into overtime.
In that overtime, the Clippers took a 111-108 lead with 3.8 seconds remaining and a chance to meet the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Finals.

Press PLAY now.
