They still have a pulse.Lou Williams scored 33 points and the Los Angeles Clippers shocked the Golden State Warriors, 129-121, in Game 5 of their best-of-seven series on Wednesday night.The victory was the second straight for the Clippers at Oracle arena, after losing back-to-back games at home in Los Angeles last week.The Clippers came out of the gate like a team possessed. With their backs against the wall, and nothing to lose, they put up 71 points in the first half, and 156 in their last four quarters at Oracle Arena overall.Missing in action for the first four games of the series, Italian sharp-shooter, Danilo Gallinari, finally arrived in the nick of time, scoring 26 points in the do-or-die Game 5.The Clippers led by eight at the half, and in the third quarter, Los Angeles went up by 15 points before the Warriors mounted a comeback, closing the lead to three points late in the quarter.The first Warriors lead of the game came on an emphatic dunk by Kevin Durant with 2:38 remaining, giving Golden State their first lead since early in the second quarter.But Williams caught fire down the stretch, scoring nine straight points in the final two minutes to close the door on the defending champs, sending shockwaves throughout the NBA.The surprising Clippers werent even supposed to make the playoffs this season. In what was was deemed to be a rebuilding year after losing Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, and DeAndre Jordan, the Clippers traded away their best player Tobias Harris at the trade deadline, signaling to most in the league that the Clips had their sights set on the future, not the present.However, the Clippers came together through their inspirational leaders in Patrick Beverly and Montrezl Harrell. The Rookies learned from the single greatest bench scorer in NBA history in Williams, and the veteran leadership of their head coach Doc Rivers.Together, they posted a better record after the All-Star break 21-9, than they did in the first half of the season with Harris. They solidified a playoff spot and fell just two games short of securing the fifth seed, settling for the eighth spot and a first-round matchup with the Warriors, winners of three of the last four NBA titles.The Warriors have taken the Clippers for granted throughout the series, even hinting after Game 4, that their sights were already set on a second round matchup with the Houston Rockets a rematch of the 2018 Western Conference Finals.The Clippers used their status as the largest underdogs in NBA playoff history to their advantage, and came out fast and furious facing elimination in Game 5.Not only did the Clippers punch first, they punched back. Throughout the last two games of the series, each and every time they got knocked down, they got right back up. Throughout the contest, they showed they were the team with more energy, more grit, more determination and toughness than the reigning NBA Champions.Williams led the upset-minded Clippers with a team-high 33 points and 10 assists. Harrell chipped in 24 points, and the duo outscored the Warriors bench by themselves, 57-to-19.Beverly had 17 points and 14 rebounds and JaMychal Green chipped in 15 in just his second start of the series.Kevin Durant had his best game of the series with a game-high 45 points and the Splash Brothers duo of Klay Thompson and Steph Curry combined for 46 points and eight three-pointers.The loss was just the second in the Steve Kerr era for Golden State in a Game 5 at home. For the Clippers, the victory snapped a streak of five consecutive Game 5 losses. Ironically, the last time the Clippers won a Game 5 was against the Warriors in 2014.Perhaps, if the Warriors win the Larry OBrien trophy this year, to complete the first three-peat since the 2000-2002, Lakers, they will look back and credit the Clippers for their keeping them focused in their first round series.For now, they have to carry over that focus into Game 6, where they will look to win their sixth consecutive playoff game on the road and dispatch of these pesky Clippers who dont ever seem to go down without a fight.NextGame 6 will be on Friday in Los Angeles at Staples Center.Photo Credit: Ezra Shaw/Getty Images
It all started in 1985 with a pair of Nike Air Jordan basketball shoes. The Jordan 1 model was nicknamed Bred -- short for black and red.Brad Hogan cant remember if he ever even tried them on. Soon after, he bought a second pair. Then another. Then ... I bought five and 10 and 20, Hogan said standing in his garage, surrounded by shoes. Man Who Police Say Drove Into Crowd in Calif. Identified Then it being 50, and a hundred, and it became geez I cant fit them in my closet.Jump forward three decades and the Redwood City man has amassed one of the worlds largest collections of Air Jordans -- 327 pairs to be exact. None has ever touched so much as a basketball court -- a sidewalk -- even a fiber of carpet. Kaepernick Doll Seen Chained to Truck in San Jose For a reason Hogan cant exactly explain, hes doggedly purchased them over the years and squirreled them away in his garage, at most opening each newly purchased box just for a glance before putting them with the others. Having original shoes that have never been worn, Hogan said picking up a shoe and sniffing its new shoe smell, just holds a sentimental value.There was plenty of sentimentality to go around as Hogan opened the garage in his Redwood City apartment complex -- revealing a dizzying display of shoes in every hue, pattern and shape. For decades, the growing collection sat in boxes, leaving just enough room in the garage to fit the car, off-limits to the world. Theranos Founder Elizabeth Holmes Appears in Court in Fraud Case But after Hogan recently revealed the existence of his collection to his pal Wilson Craig, he surrendered to his buddys suggestion he show them to an NBC Bay Area reporter. I Googled Nike shoe collections and then I kind of understood that this might be one of the largest dead stock Nike collections in the country, said Craig, who only learned of his longtime friends collection last month. I was surprised -- honestly Ive never known anybody that collected anything to this degree. The majority of Hogans shoes are in his size -- 9 1/2.But since he had no plans to wear the shoes, he figured it didnt really matter what size he purchased, hence the size 18 pair of gray retro sneakers he bought because it was the only pair available. His collection also includes a few pairs small enough they would only fit a child-sized NBA star.Hogan, a Bay Area corporate event planner, rented several tables and studio lights to lay out his shoes for a journalist visitor. It was the first time hed ever taken them out of the box and the first time hed even shown his collection to anyone en masse. Even Hogan himself seemed startled by the sight. He consulted his phone where he kept a spread sheet of all 327 pairs of shoes according to purchase date and color.These are my favorites, he said locating a pair of black shoes with red soles and a band of leather. These are the Jordan 11, these are famous for the patent leather. Hardcore shoe collectors sometimes line up outside shoe stores before dawn to snatch up new limited edition releases -- Hogan has never done that -- instead buying the bulk of his shoes online or through San Francisco dealers.Some of his collection includes special packs holding two pairs of shoes -- the model numbers adding up to 23 -- Michael Jordans number. Even before Hogan was a fan of Air Jordans he was a fan of the actual Jordan -- the basketball marvel immortalized by a spectacular career on the court and his namesake shoes. Hogan saw him play at Stanford once while Jordan was still playing in college. I mean Michael Jordan is the greatest of all time and I wanted to somehow at the time be a part of the shoe phenomenon, Hogan said looking around at his own personal shoe-mageddon. Little did I know 30 years later ...As a kid, Hogan collected regular things like stamps, coins and trading cards. In addition to his current shoe collection, he admits to obsessively collecting soaps and shampoos from hotels. But whether his collecting bug has reached the therapy level is up for debate. My family worries about me. My wife Susan worries about me, he said with an only half-serious grin. I collect them because very few people can say they have a collection of this enormity of just never-been worn shoes Hogan said he recently stopped collecting Air Jordans after 32 years, deciding hed finally had enough and didnt want to go overboard. Since going public with his collection, hes moved it out of his garage and into a secure, temperature-controlled facility.While the collection may be valuable -- a single pair of 1980s Jordans can fetch hundreds of dollars -- Hogan never intended it as an investment. He said he has no plans to sell his shoes. Instead hed like to eventually meet other people with the same collecting affliction, maybe even take the shoes on the road putting them on public display, in a way confronting the stigma that collectors sometimes face. Im here just to show, Hogan said, that people do collect certain unique, ironic things in their life.Photo Credit: Joe Rosato Jr./NBC Bay Area This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.

The Los Angeles Clippers are the walking dead.After the greatest comeback in NBA postseason history in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series with the Golden State Warriors, the Clippers lost back-to-back games at home.This series is over. Make no mistake about it, but the Clippers can prolong the inevitable, as the Warriors still need to end it.Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson combined for 65 points, and the Golden State Warriors defeated the Los Angeles Clippers, 113-105, in Game 4 of their best-of-seven playoff series at Staples Center.If Easter Sunday was the final home game of the season for the Clippers, then they definitely did not go quietly into the night. After losing by 27 points in Game 3 on Thursday, the Clips came out with something to prove in Game 4.Unlike their start in Game 3, where they surrendered 41 first quarter points and trailed by 17, the Clippers began the game making a statement to the Warriors: we wont go down without a fight.The Clippers actually took a 22-20 first quarter lead before Thompson and the Warriors went on a 12-0 run to end the first frame.The Clippers clawed and scratched their way back into the game, trailing by just four points with three seconds left in the half, but Durant drained a three, and got fouled, to complete a four-point play just before the break.Any shots you can make going into the halftime, whether its a lay-up, or a four-point play, thats good for momentum, said Durant. Basketball is all about momentum and flow, and they had it. Even though it was just four points, it was good at that time for us to get a little bit more separation knowing that they had some momentum going into the half.Clippers head coach Doc Rivers thought Durants four-point play was a pivotal play in the game.It was a big play, said Rivers. We should have trapped him. Thats what we were trying to do. No one came. Thats a great example at the end of that quarter, I think we have a four-on-one, Pat Beverly pulls up for a three, we get nothing out of it, and they come down and get a four-point pay. Thats just the way the game goes. Cant get it back.The Clippers resiliency continued throughout the game. Every time the Warriors made a push, the Clips pushed back. Every time the Warriors hit the Clippers with a punch, the Clips counterpunched. L.A. played inspired basketball during stretches throughout the game, including an 18-7 run in the third quarter that put them up five.Youve got to keep punching, Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. Youre going to get hit. You have to throw punches back. I loved how we fought. I loved how we kept coming back.Unfortunately for the Clippers, the Warriors landed the knockout punch in the final few minutes of the game, and hung on to defeat the Clippers, sending the series back to Oakland with the three-time defending Champions up 3-1.We already let one slip away, said Thompson who had 27 points in the first half and a dagger three late in the fourth quarter. Tonight we came in with that mindset to put our foot on the throttle and not let go because we let go in Game 2 and we wont do that again the rest of the Playoffs. I really believe that.Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the Clippers with a career-high 25 points, the most by a Clippers rookie in the playoffs in franchise history.I saw spots where I could take advantage offensively, and I tried to do so today, said Gilgeous-Alexander of his offensive explosion in Game 4.Patrick Beverly and Lou Williams each had 12 points, Montrezl Harrell had 10, and Danilo Gallinari finished with 16 points, as the Clippers now find themselves on the brink of elimination.If those two guys -- and those are our two key offensive guys, struggles, then its going to be hard, very, very hard for us to win against anyone, let alone Golden State, said Rivers about Williams and Gallinari combining to shoot 7-for-30.This could be the last time Los Angeles fans see Patrick Beverly, Garrett Temple, and JaMychal Green at Staples Center. They are all unrestricted free agents at the end of the season.Thompson got hot in Game 4, scoring 32 points and sinking six three-pointers. Durant had a team-high 33 points, seven rebounds, and six assists.The ball was just finding me, said Thompson of his hot-shooting. I didnt do anything special. I was just getting open and knocking down shots, playing in a good rhythm, see a few go in, and then all you need is a little space.Stephen Curry was in foul trouble for most of the first half, but still finished with 12 points, 10 rebounds, and seven assists in the victory, the Warriors fifth consecutive on the road in the playoffs dating back to last season.NextThe Warriors can close out the Clippers in Game 5 at Oracle Arena on Wednesday.Photo Credit: Harry How/Getty Images
