Call it the Mother’s Day Miracle or call it whatever you want but the Clippers came back from the edge of desperation and a 16-point deficit in the fourth quarter to tie the Western Conference semifinal with a 101-99 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder this afternoon at Staples Center.

The Clippers seemed all but dead after shooting only 25% in the first quarter but slowly crawled back into the game, taking their first lead with 58 seconds to play.

Game 5 is Tuesday night in Oklahoma City. It’s now a best of three with OKC having the homecourt advantage.
