Clippers Game Results (Part 1: 1990 vs. 1996)


The moment you’ve ALL been waiting for! The LOS! ANGELES! CLIPPERS!!!!!!!!
To begin, the 1975 Buffalo Braves get a first round bye…Let’s jump right in!

(21) 1990 Los Angeles Clippers (30-52) vs. (22) 1996 Los Angeles Clippers (29-53)
Does it get any better? 30 wins and 29 wins! Let’s battle to the death! (I feel sorry for 1990…no Ron Harper….They suck!). (By the way…Bison Dele is known as Brian Williams.

Game 1


We’re treated to a thriller of a finish…Before you find out who won, I’ll give you a quick play by play. 1990 starts the 4th quarter down 10. 1996’s lead hovers around 10-12. After 5 straight points by Danny Manning, it’s a 6 point game, but Lamond Murray hits a jumper with 8:20 left to make it 8. Then they look to rally back, as Tom Garrick hits a shot, then assists on a three from Ken Norman in the corner. 

But then they foul Brent Barry on a three, and he hits them all, making the lead 6 with 5:45 to play. A Joe Wolf dunk, and a fadeaway And-1 from Danny Manning pulls the lead to 1….Until Rodney Rogers hits a deadly right corner three off a no-looker from Loy Vaught. 1996 pulls the lead to 6 with under three to play. With 2:34 left, the score is 100-94, with 1996 leading. They have scored their last points. Benoit Benjamin makes a shot, then Jeff Martin hits an And-1….With 1 minute to play, it’s a one point lead to 1996. Loy Vaught can’t hit a shot, but he grabs his own board….But Brent Barry can’t hit a shot. Charles Smith hits a contested jumper to put them permanently in the lead. It’s not like 1996 didn’t have a chance…After Smith missed a freebee, and they stopped David Rivers with 31 seconds left, they can’t hit a shot. Malik Sealy misses one in the paint, then Brian Williams just misses a shot short at the end of regulation…Must have been an exciting game…Not that anyone would have watched if it were televised….Loy Vaught didn’t get much help…It was basically his 22-11 that was against 1990’s 19-17 from Benoit Benjamin, 11 assists from Tom Garrick off the bench, and 10 from David Rivers…Great debut for the Clippers!

1990 Wins 101-100

1990 Leads Series 1-0

But we now travel over to 1996’s LA…This one was close…Are we in for another good one?

Game 2

Another good one! After being down 9 at one point during the 4th, 1996 battles back to make it a tied game with 10 seconds left off a Stanley Roberts one hander. With two seconds left, Charles Smith launches a floater….And it falls! But there is still two seconds remaining. Can 1996 force a desisive Game 3? The ball will go to Malik Sealy after a timeout………But Sealy misses badly and 1990 is going to round 2! What a great series. I may have made a joke about the quality of this matchup…But this was a very good series. Had I known that there would be two climatic finishes, I would have bought tickets and watched it…Great series.
