Kevin Durant couldn’t save the Warriors in Game 5 vs Clippers

Kevin Durant couldn’t save the Warriors in Game 5 vs Clippers

Durant scored 45 in a valiant effort despite the loss. The stats show that when KD scores 40+, it’s usually because the Warriors are in trouble. There’s nothing like being a fan of an NBA team and watching your superstar put on a scoring binge in a big game. Last night as the Los Angeles Clippers wrestled out of the Golden State Warriors’ chokehold to win Game 5 in Oracle Arena, it was clear the Dubs were leaning on Kevin Durant to carry them. Durant responded to that urgent cry with a monstrous performance: 45 points, 14-of-26 shooting from the field, 5-of-12 from downtown, 6...

Lou Williams: “It’s their mistake for looking ahead”

Lou Williams: “It’s their mistake for looking ahead”

The Warriors may have been looking ahead to a second round matchup against the Rockets. That’s what the Clippers think. Minutes before the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers tipped off for Game 5 of their first round playoff series, the Houston Rockets beat the Utah Jazz to advance to the second round. This news didn’t evade the Warriors, who will face the Rockets if they can first get past the Clippers. According to Lou Williams, who was nothing short of spectacular in Game 5, that played a role in the Clippers’ 129-121 victory. Lou Williams asked about #Warriors...

The Golden Breakdown: The Warriors’ waning defensive effort fails them in Game 5

The Golden Breakdown: The Warriors’ waning defensive effort fails them in Game 5

The Warriors’ lackluster effort in containing the Clippers’ offensive attack further extends a series that shouldn’t have reached this point. If there was a tried and tested maxim that was true for these Golden State Warriors, it was most certainly this: What happens in the regular season, stays in the regular season. During the 2017-18 regular season, the Warriors encountered the first signs of weariness, symptoms of a malaise caused by an apparent boredom and impatience of a team itching to skip the regular season and fast forward straight to the playoffs. Last year’s regular...

Podcast: Clippers force Game 6

Podcast: Clippers force Game 6

Golden State failed to close things out at home. The Los Angeles Clippers shocked the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday, winning Game 5 of their first round playoff series 129-121. With the victory, the Clippers forced Game 6, and the Warriors lost the opportunity to clinch a second round matchup against the Houston Rockets. Kevin Durant was brilliant. Unfortunately for the Warriors, so were Lou Williams, Montrezl Harrell, and Patrick Beverley. Draymond Green played hard - but the entire Clippers squad played even harder. It was a bad, bad loss, and now the Warriors - massive favorites...

Final Score: Warriors shame Dub Nation, lose 129-121 to Clips in Game 5

Final Score: Warriors shame Dub Nation, lose 129-121 to Clips in Game 5

The Warriors defense got eviscerated in Oracle Arena. The Golden State Warriors lost Game 5 at home 129-121 to the unrelenting Los Angeles Clippers. L.A. refused to die. Kevin Durant led the champs with 45 points. Steph Curry added 24 points, and Klay Thompson chipped in 22 of his own. Offense wasn’t really the problem, folks. The issue was the Clippers shredding the Warriors defense with the unstoppable Lou Wlliams-Montrezl Harrell pick-and-roll. Williams led the Clips with 33 points off of the bench, and Harrell added 24. The Clippers took control of the first half behind some TRAGIC...

Rockets beat Jazz, advance to the second round

Rockets beat Jazz, advance to the second round

Houston did their part in earning a rematch with Golden State. The Houston Rockets beat the Utah Jazz on Wednesday to advance to the second round of the 2019 NBA Playoffs. Utah put up a big fight on the road, and led in the fourth quarter. But a 4-22 shooting night from Donovan Mitchell played a big role, and the Jazz simply couldn’t get a bucket late, ultimately falling 100-93, to lose the series four games to one. With the win, Houston sets themselves up for a rematch against the Golden State Warriors. Assuming the Warriors win their series against the Los Angeles Clippers, the teams...

Warriors vs. Clippers Game 5: Steve Kerr has some thoughts on Damian Lillard and good shots

Warriors vs. Clippers Game 5: Steve Kerr has some thoughts on Damian Lillard and good shots

Golden State has a chance to close out the series at Oracle Arena. The Golden State Warriors will look to close out the Los Angeles Clippers tonight in Game 5 of the first round of the NBA Playoffs. The game tips off at 7:30 p.m. PT on TNT. And while the Warriors have their own exciting game to play, they - like the entire basketball world - have been enamored with the heroics of one Oakland product: Damian Lillard. Lillard hit one of the more memorable shots in NBA history on Tuesday, with a cold-blooded step-back 37-footer at the buzzer to send the Portland Trail Blazers to the second...

Warriors vs. Clippers Game 5 Preview: Close it out and move on

Warriors vs. Clippers Game 5 Preview: Close it out and move on

Draymond Green (hand) expected to play after MRI comes back clean. 3-1 jokes aside, it’s time for the Golden State Warriors to finish off the Los Angeles Clippers and move on. We look ahead so the team doesn’t have to. With an extremely worthy Houston Rockets poised to advance, it behooves the defending champs to close their first round series out in a timely fashion. It’s been a weird series. Other than the Clippers’ historic comeback Los Angeles has been thoroughly dominated. But that comeback, along with painful memories of unavoidable “Warriors blew a 3-1 lead” meme and a...

Warriors encourage fans to take public transportation to Game 5

With an Athletics home game earlier in the day, things are going to get crowded in Oakland. The Golden State Warriors are encouraging fans who are attending Wednesday’s Game 5 against the Los Angeles Clippers to take public transportation, and to plan on arriving at the game early. Golden State took to social media on Tuesday to encourage this action, citing the fact that the Oakland Athletics - who share a parking lot with the Warriors - are also playing a Wednesday game.

Steve Kerr believes ‘next question’ approach to the media is dangerous for the league

Steve Kerr believes ‘next question’ approach to the media is dangerous for the league

Just answer the questions. “Next Question” is now THE catchphrase of the NBA. Players and coaches are getting a kick out of mocking Oklahoma City Thunder guard, Russell Westbrook and his treatment of The Daily Oklahoman’s Berry Tramel. After Warriors coach Steve Kerr joked about handling future press conferences like Westbrook after Sunday’s game four, Kerr’s tone became serious and matter of fact. There’s nothing funny about Westbrook’s actions at the podium, as Kerr said according to an article by Ethan Strauss of The Athletic. “I think it’s dangerous for the league,”...

Kevon Looney explains the defensive adjustments against Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell

Kevon Looney explains the defensive adjustments against Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell

Williams and Harrell were dominant for the Clippers in Games 1 and 2, but struggled in Games 3 and 4. What are the Warriors doing differently? One of the biggest keys in the Golden State Warriors winning the last two playoff games against the Los Angeles Clippers has been the defense against Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell. Williams and Harrell may come off the bench, but they are two of the Clippers best players. With Danilo Gallinari not looking right, Williams and Harrell very well may be the top two players for Los Angeles. Their pick and roll has been deadly all season long, and...

Klay Thompson needed the beach to rejuvenate his Splash Bro powers

Klay Thompson needed the beach to rejuvenate his Splash Bro powers

Thompson returned home to the SoCal area to drown the Clippers with deep shooting in Game 4. Through the first three games of the playoffs, Klay Thompson couldn’t activate his laser targeting system from beyond the arc. He was 4-of-12 from beyond three-point range heading into Saturday’s pivotal Game 4 clash with the feisty Los Angeles Clippers. That’s when he knew he had to return to the source of his power: the water. A lot of folks think that a Splash Bro can keep his jumpshot wet just by happenstance. Wrong. Klay is one of a kind (➡️ @subaru_usa)...
