Skip Bayless proclaims that it’s officially the end for the Los Angeles Clippers as they lost Game 4 to Chris Paul and the Phoenix Suns.
The ‘down 0-2 Clippers are the most dangerous team in the Payoffs’ narrative took a massive hit last night. After having won Game 3 on their home floor and finally getting themselves on the board for this series, NBA fans claimed the Clips will eventually come back to take this series. This is because Paul George and company came back down from 0-2 to beat their previous two opponents.
However, a grueling rock fight between Chris Paul’s Suns and the Clippers resulted in the former taking the victory and putting the latter on the brink of elimination. Paul George shot an abysmal 5-20 in last night’s must-win while Reggie Jackson had a particularly uncharacteristic game and went 8-24 from the field.
The ‘Pandemic P’ memes are back in full effect, with Shannon Sharpe handing out perhaps the greatest nickname to have ever come out from this PG-13 slander: Polyester P. Sharpe’s co-host on Undisputed, Skip Bayless, took to Twitter to officially call it an end to the Clippers’ season.
Skip Bayless firmly believes the Clippers’ season is over after their Game 4 loss.
NBA fans have been grilling Skip Bayless for trying to put a reverse jinx on the Clippers season but it truly feels as though Bayless does not see light at the end of the tunnel for Paul George and co. Without Kawhi Leonard, it feels nearly impossible for LA to dig themselves out of this 3-1 hole.
Well, that’s the end of the Clippers as I knew and loved them. Congrats, gentlemen, on going farther than anyone thought you could without your best player.

Though being down 3-1 isn’t ideal, it isn’t the end. Teams have come back from down 3-1 more than ten times throughout NBA history. The Clippers have had their own history of blowing 3-1 leads as they did so to the Rockets and Nuggets in past years.
Winning three straight games, including 2 on the Suns home floor is something that will be the greatest challenge this team has ever faced. However, it isn’t to be ruled out.
