Because they won Game 4, the Clippers have a 3 to 1 lead their best-of-seven series against the Houston Rockets. They need only one more win to take the series and proceed to the Western Conference Finals. All three Clipper wins were decisive with the Clippers outscoring the Rockets by 16, 25 and 33 points, respectively. The Clippers need to win only one of the remaining games, and if it has to be played, Game 6 is a home game for them. It is looking good for the Clippers.
I think that Dwight Howard is full of a lot of quit and James Harden is good but it seems more like a facade to me. He might score 30 points a game but 18 of them are free throws and the Clippers aren't fouling when he flails his arms around. Also Doc is a way better coach than Mchale.
The Los Angeles Clippers are up on the Houston Rockets. The Clippers will win this series and make it to the Western Conference Finals as a result. Their success may, however, be fleeting once they make it to the Western Conference Finals due to their inexperience with this level of success.
The Los Angeles Clippers have a very good chance of making it into the Western Conference Finals this season. As a team that is only behind one team, the Golden State Warriors of Tennessee, it is more than likely that they will earn their place in the conference for this year.
