Mann, Where Did That Come From? Terance Mann Has Performance Of His Life for Clippers


Mann, that was crazy. The Los Angeles Clippers defeated the Utah Jazz 131-119 in Game 6, to move on to the Western Conference Finals for the first time in their history. But how they got there?? How about a 25-point comeback, and an epic 39-point performance from the unlikeliest source, Terance Mann. 

Mann averaged just 7 points per game this season off the bench, but he was thrust into a starting role when franchise player Kawhi Leonard went down with a knee injury that seemingly evaporated the Clippers' chances in this series. 

Instead, the 24-year-old guard came in and shot 15 of 21 from the field, and 7 of 10 from three-point range. After the game, Paul George had some praise for Mann, but in a... PG kind of way:

"One of the best young players," said George. "He reminds me of myself." Yes, of course he does, PG.  

As for the 25-point comeback,  it's the largest for a series-clinching win in 25 years.  

Next up for the Clippers: The Western Conference Finals, vs. the Phoenix Suns.
