A source tells Celtics Insider A. Sherrod Blakely that because the Clippers wouldn't include a second first-round pick to Boston, the trade fell through.
Boris Diaw played tremendous defense against LeBron James in Game 5, and will need to do the same again in Game 6 to give the Spurs the championship.
The Celtics wanted two first-round draft picks, and the Clippers would only part with one. The Clippers also weren't keen on the money involved in making the deal.
