In the NBA playoffs, we will see Los Angeles Clippers at Golden State Warriors.
The Los Angeles Clippers are coming off a big loss in game 1. They were defeated by the Golden State Warriors in a game which was never close. Still, Harrell had a good game with 26 points on 11 of 15 shooting from the floor while Lou Williams added 25 on his own. The Clippers’ starters couldn’t get going but I expect to finally have solid games in this one and post big numbers.
The Warriors, on the other side, could underestimate the Clippers after the easy win they got in game 1. Steph Curry drained 8 three-pointers and he finished with 38 points, 15 rebounds, and 7 assists while Kevin Durant helped him with 23 points. As a team, the Warriors shot 49 percent from the field and 14 of 30 from the 3-point line.
The Clippers do not have the defense to compete with the Warriors. After a hot game, it always comes a game where nothing is really falling. I still expect the Warriors to get the victory and sweep the Clippers, eventually, but in game 2, Los Angeles will have its moments due to the great offensive abilities of its starting 5 and bench.
