After the most tumultuous week in Los Angeles Clippers history, their playoff series with the Golden State Warriors is finally down to its grand finale.

The Clippers will host a Game 7 for the first time in franchise history on Saturday night against the Warriors, hoping to draw energy from their Staples Center crowd for one more victory.

The Warriors are just one obstacle faced by the Clippers, who endured sleepless nights and immense scrutiny while their owner was exposed for racist comments and banned for life from the NBA between games in this series.

The Clippers missed their chance to wrap the series in Game 6 in Oakland, but the Pacific Division champions played all year for the chance to finish a series on their home court.
