NBA Playoffs: Clippers vs Warriors, Game 5

NBA Playoffs Western Conference Finals

Warriors up 3-1 in the Series

The Los Angeles Clippers have battled hard against the Golden State Warriors, but they still face elimination Wednesday night in Oakland. The Clippers are down 3-1 in this best-of-seven first-round series, although they’ve split the cash 2-2 ATS thus far. The Warriors squandered a huge lead in losing Game 2. They recovered with a pair of impressive wins as Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson led the way.

TV: 10:30 p.m. ET, TNT, FS Prime Ticket (Los Angeles), NBCS Bay Area (Golden State) LINE: Warriors -14.5; O/U: 233.

The lone straight-up victory for Los Angeles happened in Game 2, when they erased a 31-point deficit to win 135-131 as 14-point road dogs. However, the bigger story from that game was the torn left quad suffered by Golden State center DeMarcus Cousins. He’s out for the remainder of the playoffs, and might not be ready for the start of the 2019-20 regular season.

The Warriors haven’t missed a step. Andrew Bogut has been inserted into the starting lineup, and has played well at both ends of the court. Bogut did earn league MVP and Defensive Player of the Year honors in his native Australia. Kevon Looney is also playing solid minutes for the Dubs in a reserve role.

Golden State is trying to end the series as quickly as possible. They would like to prepare for a likely semifinal round against the Houston Rockets. They followed up a blowout victory in Game 3 with a 113-105 triumph in Game 4 on Sunday. The Clippers trailed by three points entering the fourth quarter on Sunday and were in the game until the final minutes.

This, That, and a Dart Throw

Los Angeles small forward Danilo Gallinari went 5-of-20 from the floor on Sunday and 7-of-33 in the two home games. He dropped his shooting percentage for the series to 29.2%. Shooting guard Lou Williams collected 36 points and 11 assists in the Game 2 victory. He then went a combined 6-of-21 in Games 3 and 4. PG Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 25 points on Sunday. He had failed to reach double figures in the previous two games.

Klay Thompson scored 27 of his 32 points in the first half to spark Golden State on Sunday. Thompson is 8-of-11 from 3-point range in the last two contests. Durant poured in 38 points to fuel the rout in Game 3, added 33 points on 12-of-21 shooting in Sunday’s win. Stephen Curry was held to 12 points on 3-of-14 shooting, including 1-of-9 from 3-point range, in Game 4.

The Dart Throw: Warriors 120, Clippers 99
