Los Angeles had the lead late, but couldn't get buckets that counted down the stretch as the Spurs earned their 18th-straight win and second-consecutive series sweep.
Down the stretch, a pair of possessions the Clippers really needed were predictably nothing more than Chris Paul isos, one of which ended up in a turnover on an off-balance pass to Caron Butler that even Paul couldn't convert:
Gregg Popovich's semi-controversial hack-a-Reggie Evans strategy worked to perfection, as the big man bricked both free throws on the play before LA relinquished their last lead of the game. Evans was pulled after the free throws and sat until the final buzzer sounded.
Bummer for the Clippers, but they still had a memorable playoff experience. They weren't the first to be swept by San Antonio, and the Spurs probably won't relent anytime soon. They look like juggernauts and haven't lost in over a month. The Thunder - or, hah, the Lakers, but let's be honest - should be very, very worried.
