Clippers end skid, enter playoffs after OT win over Utah

Grayson Allen drives for the Jazz against the Clippers

Hall of Fame play-by-play announcer Ralph Lawler, in his 40th season the with Clippers, will call his final regular-season game - and 3,229th game overall - on Wednesday night against the Utah Jazz.

If all three teams win, or if Los Angeles loses to Utah, the Clippers would be the No. 8 seed. Western Conference. The Clippers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest.

The seventh-place team from the West will likely face the Denver Nuggets in the first round, while the No. 8 seed will face the defending National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors. Portland, which wanted to tank the final game to play the Jazz in the first round instead of the Oklahoma City Thunder, erased a 25-point halftime deficit and won by five. If the Clippers win and neither of the other scenarios happen, LA will be locked into the eighth seed. "I don't think anyone wants to play Golden State". They're a terrific team and we know how hard the series will be.

They'll take on the Houston Rockets in the first round.

Wells Fargo earnings make for a neat job ad
Wells Fargo is the fourth largest American bank by assets and the third largest by market value, which is about $217 billion. Wells Fargo will probably face questions from analysts later on Friday about its search for a successor for Sloan.

When the Clippers tipped off their 2018-2019 campaign, forward Tobias Harris was the face of the franchise, rookie point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander was coming off the bench and Luc Mbah a Moute was actually playing in games - all things that seem insane to think about now. In between, they lost 122-117 to the Lakers, who were 12 games behind the Clippers coming into the game.

Originally anticipated to win roughly 30 games this season, the Clippers were able to clinch a playoff spot with just over two weeks left on their schedule - with a much different roster than they started the season with. But if the Spurs win, the Clippers will need the Thunder to lose to the Bucks (another team resting its stars) in order to get the seven. Gallinari has averaged 18.6 points and totaled 5.6 rebounds while shooting 37.8 percent over the last 10 games for Los Angeles.

"We have a lot of first-time guys, and once we clinched, we kind of took our foot off the gas a little bit", said Clippers veteran guard Lou Williams, who averages a team-high 20 points. "That comes with experience".

The Clippers haven't played very well defensively and are giving up 114 points per game, which is 23 in the league. "We try to fill that void the best we can and we haven't been successful doing it".
