Game 7 of the NBA Playoffs saw the Los Angeles Clippers face the Utah Jazz at the Staples Center, with the Jazz coming out ahead with a final score of 104-91. This knocks the Clippers out of the NBA Playoffs for this year after only playing in the first round of games. This game came after the Clippers beat the Jazz Friday night to create a 3-3 split. Today was their last chance to win the series and advance to the next round against the Golden State Warriors.

The Clippers have often faced Game 7 pressure, according to the L.A. Times. The first round of 2015's playoffs put them in a similar circumstance against the San Antonio Spurs, but they won Game 7 and advanced to round two against the Houston Rockets. The Clippers subsequently lost Game 7 to the Rockets in the second round.

Last week, the Clippers lost Blake Griffin for the remainder of the playoffs due to a toe injury.
