Down 31 to the Warriors? No worries when you’ve got Trez.

The Los Angeles Clippers pulled off the biggest comeback in NBA playoffs history Monday night/Tuesday morning, turning a 31-point deficit with less than eight minutes to play into an almost impossible to believe 135-131 win over the Golden State Warriors.

One of the biggest reasons for the comeback was the play of former Louisville star Montrezl Harrell. The fourth-year NBA standout (who is about to get paid) scored 25 points, grabbed 10 rebounds, made all nine of his field goal attempts, and drilled four free-throws in the game’s final moments to lock down the win.

Were the clutch free-throws made because Trez found a new system that works?

Couldn’t have hurt.

Here’s the best of Trez overall from the historic comeback:

The series is now tied at one game apiece, with game three set for Thursday night at 10:30 on TNT.

Terry Rozier (Celtics) and Donovan Mitchell (Jazz) return to the court on Wednesday night for game three of their respective series.
