But the Clippers were not going to lose their groove so quickly and made a push for the finish, capitalizing on their lead and capturing the second set 25-17. However, it was the Sun Dogs who took the lead early in the third set, leading the Clippers 5-4. But the lead was short lived, and the Clippers soon took an 8-6 lead, which they continued to build until eventually winning the set 25-15.
