Los Angeles Clippers were down 25 points at the start of the third quarter, however Terance Mann’s career game gave life to the LA franchise to advance to the Conference Finals for the first time in 50 seasons.
Mann finished the Game 6 with a career-high 39 points on 15-of-21 (7-of-10 from deep) shooting to propel the Clippers to a 119-131 win over the Utah Jazz.
Mann scored 39 of his 20 points in the third quarter as the Clippers came back from 75-50 thanks to a 17-0 run that started midway through the third quarter.
Paul George followed Mann with another all-around performance of 28 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, while Reggie Jackson had a double-double with 27 points and 10 assists.
