Clippers humiliate Warriors after Game 1 loss
After a devastating four point loss on Saturday, the Los Angeles Clippers came ready to compete to the very best of their ability, slaughtering their foes 138-98. Blake Griffin shot an impressive 13 of 17 from the floor, putting up a career playoff high with 35 points. Chris Paul had a modest 12 points, but coupled his scoring with passing for yet another double double. As a team, L.A. shot over 56% from the floor, opposed to Golden State’s 47%. In fact, unlike the Clippers, the Warriors could not play well as a team. Stephen Curry racked up 24 points with 8 assists, but the team only had one other player with double figures in points. Stephen Curry had carried his young gun Warriors on his back, but this ultimately fell well short. Without the help of his teammates, Curry has given the Clippers their biggest playoff victory (40 points) in franchise victory, and LA appears difficult to slow down going into a crucial Game 3 in Oracle Arena.
