Have the Clippers blades gone dull, can they finish?

Blake-GriffinThe Los Angeles Clippers set the NBA world ablaze with the team acquiring  the top 5 point guard in the league, Chris Paul.

They leaped out to a commanding 3-1 lead in the series but 2 days ago failed to close the deal.

Dallas is older and they cannot keep up with young legs of Westbrook. Read more here…
