The Los Angeles Clippers have been no strangers to slow starts this postseason. They went down 0-2 against the Dallas Mavericks in the first round, and they were in the same position after losing the first two games of the Western Conference Finals against the Phoenix Suns. But LA responded in a big way with a commanding Game 3 win.
Their odds to win the NBA Finals on FanDuel Sportsbook are climbing as a result.
