Los Angeles Clippers, led by Paul George, were able to make an incredible comeback against the Detroit Pistons. There are comebacks that are improbable to happen, comebacks that are impossible to happen, and then there is the comeback that the Los Angeles Clippers made.
When they were trailing by 14 points or more with three minutes left to play on Monday night, the Los Angeles Clippers chances of winning the game were 2 in 12,873 when the odds were calculated.
Since play-by-play was introduced into sports broadcasting, only two teams have come back from being down by 14 points or more with three minutes left in a game and won (1996, 1997).
Paul George’s 32 points led the Los Angeles Clippers to a victory over the Detroit Pistons in overtime, 142-131, despite the fact that the Los Angeles Clippers had to come back from a 14-point hole in the last 3:34 of regulation.

After the Los Angeles Clippers fell behind 126–112, head coach Tyronn Lue pulled his starting lineup, but a group with Luke Kennard, Terance Mann, Amir Coffey, Nicolas Batum, and Moses Brown went on a 16–2 run to close out the fourth quarter. With only five seconds left in the game’s regulation time, Mann made a jump shot that tied the score.
While Tyronn Lue was thanking his teammates for their valiant efforts, he made a remark to the effect that “you have to give those guys credit for remaining ready.” When they first started playing, they did it with a sense of urgency.
Because Amir and Moses hadn’t played in the game before, it was more noteworthy when they did join and do so well. Luke Kennard’s contributions were 18 points and 5 rebounds. Even though All-Star big man Kawhi Leonard wasn’t playing for the Los Angeles Clippers, seven of their other players scored in double figures.
The Pistons have now lost eight straight games to the Clippers. On Tuesday, the Los Angeles Clippers will travel to Toronto to take on the Raptors, the team that Kawhi Leonard and Norman Powell were a part of when it won the 2019 NBA championship.

Leonard and Powell will make their returns against the Raptors. On Monday, the Los Angeles Clippers defeated the visiting Detroit Pistons 142-131 in overtime to take home a victory. Powell was responsible for 16 of the team’s points.
Because of his injuries, Leonard is unable to participate. Leonard, who hasn’t been playing in both halves of consecutive games, is likely going to be there on Tuesday, despite the fact that he hasn’t been doing so recently. As a direct consequence of their remarkable comeback performance in Detroit, the Los Angeles Clippers have moved up to the fourth position in the Western Conference.
The Raptors kicked off their season with a win on the road against the Cleveland Cavaliers, 118-107, to end their trip with a 2-1 record. On Sunday, they will compete for the first time this year.
Both the eight-game winning run of the New York Knicks and the five-game winning streak of the Cleveland Cavaliers have been snapped by the Toronto Raptors, who have won two consecutive games after losing six in a row.
