The reason the Lakers lost their 3-1 lead? Honestly? We think it was that ridiculous "Hallway Series" name. That's really the best name they could come up with? Do they even have hallways in Los Angeles?

So here we are, with a series that people should be looking forward to more than they are, considering it's the freaking Clippers four wins away from the conference finals. We have a sneaking suspicion this is going to end up the best of the four series.

Here's a look at the series from around the Web:

Daily Quickie: Clippers in seven.
YAYSports!: Clippers in six.
The Association: Suns in seven.
J.E. Skeets: Suns in six.
Complete Sports: Suns in seven.
Chris Sheridan: Suns in seven.
True Hoop: Suns in five.
• Deadspin: Suns in seven. Sorry. We're not ready for the Clippers in the conference finals yet. We're just not.

Let's hear 'em in the comments, folks, and enjoy the games tonight.
