“After seeing it and all the talk about it, I knew the next day they would come out and play well,” Hill said. “I said the Clippers have no chance because that kind of experience you have a glimpse of the atmosphere and the connection those guys have and it was almost like a team bonding, a galvanizing experience for the team.”

The “NBA Inside Stuff” episode also includes a Mother’s Day segment that features five moms of players and former players, including Lucille O’Neal (Shaq’s mother) and Jolina Wade (Dwyane’s mother).
