Former Clipper Chris Paul's plan has so far worked out in Houston

The following season, Paul’s Clippers couldn’t hang on to a 3-1 series lead against the Rockets, suffering a humiliating loss at Staples Center in Game 6, where they blew a 19-point lead to a Houston team with Harden and Dwight Howard on the bench. The loss in Game 7 in Houston, three years ago this Thursday, kept the Clippers and Paul from the playoff matchup with the Warriors.
