Analyst Skip Bayless calls the LA Clippers the most frustrating team to watch in the 2021 NBA Playoffs after they go down 0-2 this 2nd round.
The LA Clippers are currently 0-2 against the Utah Jazz in the 2021 NBA semi-finals after having a very turbulent first round against the Dallas Mavericks. The Clippers somehow managed to beat the Mavericks in 7 games.
Bayless has been rooting for the Clippers to win ever since Kawhi Leonard and Paul George arrived in the city of LA.
The Clippers had a very disappointing end to the 2020 NBA Playoffs in the Orlando Bubble, where despite having a 3-1 lead, they lost to the relatively inexperienced Denver Nuggets.
This early-round exit took everyone by surprise as the Clippers were considered championship contenders. What followed was a series of trolls and criticism.
Skip Bayless calls the LA Clippers a superior team than the Utah Jazz, despite being down 0-2
The undisputed analyst isn’t discouraged by their performance despite losing back-to-back to the Jazz. Bayless cited his observations from Game 1 in which he stated that despite blowing a 13 point lead.
The Clippers were able to make a comeback during the clutch time and also had a situation where they could tie the game. Bayless followed this by his observations during Game 2. The Clippers, despite being down 20 points in the 3rd quarter, were able to make a 46-23 run.
The Clippers are simply the most frustrating team in playoff games I have ever attempted to watch. It got so bad for me last night I couldn’t watch my TV anymore, I had to go around the corner and just listen. More @Undisputed, now on FS1 https://t.co/zMESwYt5NW

Reggie Jackson was the most important player on the Clippers roster in Game 2. Jackson put up 29 points as he shot 57.9% from the field and 50% from the 3-point line.
Though Paul George had 27 points in Game 2, his inability to defend Jazz star Donovan Mitchell was one of the main reasons why the Clippers failed to secure a win.
George hasn’t been able to elevate his game during the Playoffs especially since the Clippers have been struggling lately.
The 7x NBA All-Star received a lot of flak for his performance during the 2020 Orlando Bubble. That also earned him the name of Pandemic P.
The Clippers have often been called the stepchild of LA or the team at the basement of the Staples Center.
The 2021 NBA Playoffs are their only chance to redeem themselves from these tags and establish an individual identity.
