Vote: Western Conference Semifinals

 Elton Brand
Can Elton Brand lead the Clippers where they've never gone before?
The first round failed to provide an upset, as each team with home-court advantage moved along to the conference semifinals. Despite the lack of upsets, there was no lack of drama, as Phoenix became just the eighth team to come back from a 3-1 deficit to win an NBA playoff series.

The Suns' comeback against the Lakers means that the Los Angeles Clippers will have to leave their home city during the conference semis. The Clippers, who are looking to reach the conference finals for the first time in franchise history, are coming off of their first playoff series victory in 30 years.

Meanwhile, in the most-anticipated conference semifinal series, the teams with the top two records in the West square off. The Spurs, who won Game 1 on Sunday by two points, will have to take care of the dangerous Mavericks in order to keep their hopes for a return to the NBA Finals alive.

Will the Clippers make this their most successful season ever? Will the Mavericks knock the Spurs off their perch out west? Answer the questions below and see how your thoughts compare with the rest of SportsNation.
