The pivotal possession with the Clippers trailing Cleveland 102-101 and 6.7 seconds left was easy to draw up during the preceding timeout.
"Pick-and-roll with Baron [Davis] and Craig [Smith]," Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "Craig had the roll. We had shooters across the board, and it's Baron's call. Find the open guys, hit the roll man or make the play himself."
Once the Clippers inbounded the ball, Davis was unable to achieve any of those three options.
