Chris Paul seems like he'll need more than a couple of days to fully recover from his role in one of the ugliest playoff collapses in NBA history.

But with the Los Angeles Clippers' season riding on Game 6 at Staples Center on Thursday night, Paul and his teammates don't have time to worry about their mistakes late in Game 5.

The Clippers' roller coaster of a postseason is in another valley after the Thunder rallied from 13 points down in four minutes, but coach Doc Rivers is teaching the Clippers that playoff runs are supposed to be tough.

Russell Westbrook rescued Oklahoma City from defeat, but the Thunder still must beat Paul and Blake Griffin one more time to advance to their third Western Conference final in four years.
