LA Clippers on brink of elimination, 'confident' they'll extend series to Game 7

LOS ANGELES -- After Kawhi Leonard air-balled a contested 3-pointer from the corner with 4.9 seconds left Wednesday night, the LA Clippers walked out of a stunned Staples Center for perhaps the final time this season.

The Dallas Mavericks and Luka Doncic pushed the Clippers to the brink with a 105-100 victory in Game 5. Doncic was spectacular again, leading the Mavs to a 3-2 series lead with 42 points, 14 assists and eight rebounds.

If the Clippers cannot find a way to win in Dallas on Friday, their season will end with another postseason failure for the second straight year.
