Cali fans rage as end of Clippers-Thunder NBA game cut off

As if the beleaguered L.A. Clippers don't have enough to worry about these days, what with the club's owner being banned for life for making racist statements, Time Warner Cable's (NYSE: TWC) signal froze during the final seconds of Sunday's matchup between the Clippers and the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Most subscribers in the Los Angeles area missed the Clippers erasing a 16-point fourth-quarter deficit. In an email to For The Win, TWC spokesman Rich Ruggiero said, "We're sorry that some of our Los Angeles customers were affected by a signal issue during today's Clippers game. We're continuing to investigate what caused the issue."

Meanwhile, disgraced Clippers owner Donald Sterling spoke with CNN's Anderson Cooper, while Sterling's estranged wife, Shelly, spoke with ABC's Barbara Walters on Sunday keeping the sports story alive for another day.
