Sorry Clippers' fans.

This weekend's finale of the collapse of the Los Angeles Clippers, which left the Houston Rockets advancing to the Western Conference finals, was downright dreadful to watch if you had any rooting interest in the Clips.

Even worse, the Clippers had more than ample opportunity to close the series out -- but they simply couldn't.

In sports video games, what is your most epic collapse? Have you ever lost a 3-1 series lead? What about 3-0?

Playing my Homeboy in the finals on NBA Live 99. I was up 3-1 with the Supersonics and came back and won the last three games with the Knicks and took chip from me. I had to hear about that for a minute.

This is an interesting question. I believe that if there were more comments if AI coaches adjusted to human players but because it doesn't and once you get on a roll it's more likely for the cpu to blow a lead than a human player. A better question might be what's the biggest series comeback you've made?

I might have series collapse, but I can't seem to remember the details due to my blinding rage and the fact I may have 'accidentally' forgot to save. Whoops.

I was down 3-1 with the Celtics in 2K12 against my buddy who was the Lakers and he blew that one. It may have been more I got lucky and hit a buzzer beater game 4 that sparked the series swing. Iv blown a couple 2-0 leads tho with the Jazz and Bulls on the older 2k's. Neat question though.

My biggest Collapse ever came in an online league on NBA 2k8 or 7 for the PS2. I was the Clippers Ironically Enough. I was up 2-0 in the Finals for our league and ended up losing the series 3-4 in game 7.

I did get my redemption though... Made it back to the finals the following year and won in a sweep. But whenever I talk with people from that league about past glories i still cringe alittle that I blew that lead in the Finals.

Sadly, since simming is no option is for me, the last time I made it to playoffs in any sportsgame was in NHL 2001, maybe 2002.

Lost 3-1 lead SNES NBA ??? I was the Celtics going into the Eastern Conference Finals with back to back sweeps in the second and first round (back when you only played a best of 5 in the first), my opponent was the Bulls. Needless to say leading 3-1 I was wondering who I was going to beat in the NBA finals... afterwards I lost sort of let the game be for a week or so.

Also have a 3-1 loss in Tony LaRussa baseball (Oakland (me) vs Texas), and a 2-0 loss in NHL Hockey 2008? (St. Louis (me) vs Colorado)

Probably would be a lot more lost series leads if I didn't spend most of my time playing football games.

Playing online association in 2k14 on the 360. I'm in the finals after dominating everyone before me as the Nuggets(the guy I'm playing is the Cavs).

I'm up 3-0 after three blowout victories. Then I blew it. Two 10-point losses and then I lost game 7 102-100.

Had to hear about that for a while.

Got into the habit of simming the NHL regular season and playing if I made the playoffs so I could build teams... Anyone that doesn't sim in NHL or NBA I give the Ironman award to.
