The Clippers hosting the Spurs in Game 5 of the 2015 NBA Playoffs First Round series.

The 2014–15 Los Angeles Clippers season is the 45th season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA), their 37th season in Southern California, and their 31st season in Los Angeles. Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer became the new owner of Clippers.[1] The team finished 56-26 on the season, only one game fewer than the previous season, clinching the third spot for the NBA Playoffs, where they defeated the defending NBA champions San Antonio Spurs in the first round in seven games after Chris Paul hit a game winning layup with 1 second on the clock. The Clippers' season ended with a Game 7 western conference semi-finals loss to the Houston Rockets after leading the series 3–1.
