In May 2015, Chris Paul delivered his most iconic moment in a Clipper jersey, coming up clutch in Game 7 of their first-round playoff series against the San Antonio Spurs.
With six seconds remaining and the scores tied at 109-109, Paul made his move, driving down the right side of the lane past Danny Green, getting the runner off high over Tim Duncan to put the Clippers in front for good.

The Spurs had one second left on the clock, but couldn't get a clean look, leaving CP3 as the hero for the Clippers.
Paul left the game late in the first quarter with a hamstring injury and after Clipper fans held their breath, Paul returned in the second quarter, before burying a buzzer-beating three at the end of the third to put the Clippers up by one - his third triple of the quarter.
"I thought about the team and all the things we'd been through," Paul said post-game. "I know that if it was any other guy on our team in a situation like this, they wouldn't lay down, so I just tried to find a way."
Watch the game below:
Paul finished with a team-high 27 points, 18 which came in the second half, adding six assists, while Blake Griffin filled it up with 24 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists - his second triple-double of the series.
For the Spurs, Tim Duncan led the way with 27 points and 11 rebounds, while Tony Parker added 20 points, five assists, and five rebounds.
