Really 14.5? Biggest spread of the series and I just think it's too many points for an elimination game

This is it. We are officially in must-win territory for the LA Clippers, whose season will come to an end unless they win on the road against the two-time defending champions.
The Clippers have looked the part of the 8-seed in this series. They played fairly well in Game 1, but still lost relatively handily. Game 2 seemed to be headed for another disaster until LA executed the greatest postseason comeback in NBA history after being down 31 points.
Fansided: Warriors: 3 keys to beating the Clippers in Game 5
Staring another meeting with the Houston Rockets in the face, the Golden State Warriors still have unfinished business in the postseason's opening round. After having the series tied at one, the Dubs have a chance to close it out in front of their home fans in Game 5.
Up 3-1, Golden State has looked dominant in its first four games.
In two of the four games, Golden State has accrued a 31-point lead. Although they forgot how to play basketball in the second half of Game 2 and allowed the largest comeback in postseason history, they were still able to showcase their dominance by widening their lead to 31.
San Jose Mercury News: Kurtenbach: The Warriors and Clippers are laying the groundwork for another great rivalry
OAKLAND -- Rivalries make sports great, but at the professional level, they seem to be increasingly fleeting.
Sure, every game is competition, but most contests feel like arranged play dates. Few carry actual friction. Most teams spend more time chirping at the referees than at their opponents.
But the Warriors and Clippers had a real rivalry. They were the best of enemies.
There was a collective loathing between the two California teams -- a showdown of contrasting egos and styles that permeated every possession they played against each other, best exemplified by their 2014 seven-game playoff series and the chippy regular seasons contests the two seasons after that.
Golden State Of Mind: Warriors vs. Clippers Game 5 Preview: Close it out and move on
3-1 jokes aside, it's time for the Golden State Warriors to finish off the Los Angeles Clippers and move on. We look ahead so the team doesn't have to. With an extremely worthy Houston Rockets poised to advance, it behooves the defending champs to close their first round series out in a timely fashion.
It's been a weird series. Other than the Clippers' historic comeback Los Angeles has been thoroughly dominated. But that comeback, along with painful memories of unavoidable "Warriors blew a 3-1 lead" meme and a season that was a bit less than wall-to-wall dominance, have me nervous.

OAKLAND - By taking a plunge into the Pacific Ocean, Klay Thompson did not just feel more refreshed. He also inspired the Warriors and presumably their fans on ensuring that they live their best life.
"With it being Earth Day yesterday, I hope more people now will get out, especially the younger generation," Thompson said following practice on Tuesday. "We, including myself, have a tough time with technological devices & addiction.
