The first two games of the playoff series between the Portland Trail Blazers and Los Angeles Clippers saw a familiar theme: After a close stretch, the Clippers have taken over late and dominated, winning both games by 20 or more.
The Blazers returned serve at home, winning the next two to knot the series. However, in a shocking turn, both Chris Paul (broken finger) and Blake Griffin (aggravated torn quad) were injured and shut down for the rest of this playoff series.
The teams pick it up in Los Angeles. Can the Blazers step on the gas and pass the Clippers? Or will LA's unusual lineups cause fits?
