The Los Angeles Clippers definitely dominated Friday’s game against the Golden State Warriors at the Chase Center for two and a half seasons, but the home team’s rally meant that the two teams split the two games into two sets this week. The Warriors The team won 115-105. .
The result is reminiscent of the Clippers’ collapse in the playoffs against the Denver Nuggets last season. Los Angeles led by 20 points late in the third quarter, and then they seemed to lose all their energy and concentrate on the game for the rest of the game. of.
The Clippers have maintained a regular five-game start so far this year, with Patrick Beverley, Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, Nicholas Batum and Sergey Ibaka in the game. Most of the time, they look good.
They rushed to get ahead, and the first TV pause time of the night rose 1
In the second quarter, the Clippers continued to keep the Warriors away from their opponents, and in several possession zones, they all scrambled to get a second chance or quick turnover. They led the halftime 65-51, George led the visitors with 17 points and Ibaka followed closely with 14 points.
After the break, the situation was about the same, the Clippers expanded their lead, then allowed the Warriors to re-enter, and then expanded the lead again. Stephen Curry is working on yeoman to keep the Golden State Warriors in the game. But the stars in Los Angeles are doing their part, and the supporting actors are doing their best. The highlight is that Lou Williams provided a rare block in the minutes before Kent Bazemore’s death in the third quarter.

This is just a game, this is the regular season, but this is not a very good very bad result for the Clippers.
