Patrick Beverley Records A Monster Double-Double
Los Angeles Clippers guard Patrick Beverley grabbed a career-high 14 rebounds to go along with 17 points in the 129-121 win over the Warriors in Game 5 on Wednesday night. Beverley drilled an impressive five triples while adding four assists with a steal as he continued to pester the Warriors. Beverley started the game with 11 points and five boards in the first eight minutes of the game which helped the Clippers pick up the chippy win. Draymond Green had a run in with Beverley, but the guard kept his cool and moved on. The Clips will look to force a game seven on Friday when they head back to Los Angeles for Game 6.

Danilo Gallinari Comes Through With 26 Points On Wednesday
Los Angeles Clippers forward Danilo Gallinari shot the ball a bit better on Wednesday as he connected on 9-for-22 shooting en route to 26 points in the big Game 5 Win over the Warriors. Gallinari added seven rebounds with two assists and was a plus-12 in his team-high 42 minutes. Gallo has struggled with his shot this series as he is shooting just 32.2% from the floor, so this was an improvement for the Italian. Gallinari and the Clippers will have a chance to even the series on Friday when the series shifts back to the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Kyle Lowry's Hot Start Helps Secure Game 5 Win
Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry got off to a hot start and finished the night with 14 points in 27 minutes of action in the Game 5 win over the Magic. Lowry was an efficient 6-for-10 from the floor and added nine assists with four rebounds and a steal in the series-ending win. Lowry did hurt his finger just before halftime and did go to the locker room to get some attention from the team's trainer. He did return and seemed fine, so we can assume there will not be any issues moving forward as the Raps will have a tough series against the 76ers and will need all of Lowry in hopes to return to the Eastern Conference Finals.
