Clipped episode 3 will air on Hulu on Tuesday, June 11, 2024, to continue the sports drama chronicling the scandal of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.

FX and Hulu just dropped the brand-new show based on the true story of the LA Clippers basketball team with a double-header premiere release. The six-part docu-series adapted the ESPN podcast The Sterling Affairs, which explored the drama following Sterling’s racist remarks, which led to the social degradation of his basketball team.

The debut episodes, titled White Party and A Blessing and a Curse, aired back-to-back on June 4 and started at the beginning of the 2013-14 NBA season. Doc Rivers had just assumed the head coach role of the Clippers.

But aside from the happenings in the team, the early feud between Shelly “Rochelle” Sterling, Donald’s wife and former co-owner of the Clippers, and V. Stiviano, Donald’s assistant/mistress who later released his infamous tape, was also depicted in the show’s premiere episodes.


By the end of episode 2, LA Clippers hit the playoffs and won Game 2 after a subpar first game while V had sent the audio to TMZ, which was later leaked. With the scandal now out, Clipped episode 3 is anticipated to cover Donald Sterling’s reaction and how it affected the team.

What to expect in Clipped episode 3?

Episode 3, titled Let the Games Began, is anticipated to cover the aftermath of the leaked Donald Sterling video at a time when the LA Clippers have just found momentum after a winning game.

Aptly titled, the upcoming episode is set to feature more of the games played by both the basketball team during the season and the powerplay of the big names behind it. The official synopsis of Clipped episode 3 reads:

“The tape hits TMZ, right in time to disrupt the Clippers’ hard-won momentum and Donald’s 8th birthday. V. responds to the outrage with curious sartorial choices.”
