The Los Angeles Clippers have risen victorious from a controversial week in the NBA, as they beat the Golden State Warriors 126-121 to claim a 4-3 first-round playoff win and progress to the semi-finals.
The Indiana Pacers have also made it through the first stages of the playoffs, thanks to a 4-3 series victory compounded by a 92-80 win over the Atlanta Hawks at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse last night.
The win came courtesy of the match-winning Paul George, who scored a postseason career-high 30 points, while also adding 11 rebounds for his sixth double-double of the series.
Finally, in Oklahoma, Russell Westbrook became just the second player in NBA history to have two triple-doubles in a Game 7 encounter, as he led the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 4-3 series win over the Memphis Grizzlies with a 120-109 victory on Sunday night.
The Thunder were helped over the line thanks to a telling partnership between Kevin Durant and Westbrook, who combined to score 60 points for the hosts.
