Warriors Blew 31 Point Lead in Game Two
The Golden State Warriors were cruising to a 2-0 lead over the eighth-seeded Los Angeles Clippers Monday night. Then everything went to hell in a handcart. The Warriors look to bounce back after relinquishing an astonishing 31-point lead in their Game 2 loss. A win will establish home-court advantage again. The Clippers will definitely be looking to gain some momentum from coming back from that far down.
Golden State went up 31 points with over seven minutes left in the third quarter. Everyone thought that was enough to cruise to a victory. Then Stephen Curry was whistled for his fourth foul seconds later and had to leave the game. The Clippers brought Lou Williams back into the game at that point and they began to make their run. Williams finished with 36 points. He was 13-of-22 shooting and had 11 assists in 33 minutes.
DeMarcus Cousins going down with a quad injury in the first half already had Golden State feeling down. Then Curry left the game after drawing his fourth foul and the recipe for disaster was stirred. Veteran Andrew Bogut logged a season-high 17 minutes off the bench. He finished with three points and nine rebounds. Kevin Durant committed nine of the team’s 22 turnovers on Monday. Cousins could miss the remainder of the playoffs with a left quad injury.
Los Angeles point guard Landry Shamet hit the go-ahead 3-pointer in the final minute. Power forward Montrezl Harrell iced the game with two free throws to cap a 25-point effort on 9-of-9 shooting. He also had 10 rebounds off the bench. The Clippers scored 85 points in the second half and shot 56.5 percent from the field in the game. They only managed 48 second-half points and shooting 40 percent in a 121-104 Game one setback. Harrell is averaging 25.5 points on 20-of-24 shooting in the series.
The Dart Throw: Warriors 123, Clippers 112
