The Los Angeles Clippers were on the verge of elimination by the Dallas Mavericks Friday but fought back to force Game 7, 104-97.

Luke Kennard scored two points in 10 minutes and was the only former Blue Devil in action Friday night.

Kawhi Leonard had a monster game, finishing with 45 points.

Game 7 will be on Sunday.

The next game featuring a former Duke player will be on Saturday as Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets kick off their series with Milwaukee and the Greek Freak, aka Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Irving and the Nets are looking pretty good but Milwaukee will be a major challenge.
