Down by as many as 31 points in the second half, the LA Clippers' odds peaked at 100-1 at some sportsbooks to come back and beat the Golden State Warriors on Monday in Game 2 of their Western Conference playoff series.
The Clippers overcame those odds and pulled off the largest comeback in playoff history, stunning the Warriors 135-131 to even the series at one game apiece.
A Kevin Durant 3-point play gave Golden State a 94-63 lead with 7:31 left in the third quarter. FanDuel's online sportsbook in New Jersey offered the Clippers at 100-1 to win at that point. ESPN's Win Probability Model gave Los Angeles a 0.01% chance of winning.
Los Angeles rallied behind Lou Williams, but the Clippers were still down 16 with nine minutes left in the fourth quarter and were again offered at 100-1.
FanDuel's online sportsbook in New Jersey took 14 bets on the Clippers' money line at 100-1, the largest a $50 wager that paid $5,000, according to a book spokesperson.
At the SuperBook at Westgate Las Vegas, the Clippers entered the series as historic underdogs. The SuperBook listed them at 100-1 to knock out the top-seeded, two-time defending champion Warriors in the first round.
The Clippers are now 20-1 to win the series at the Westgate and have already attracted a $2,700 bet to pull off what would be the most shocking upset in NBA history.
