Maybe Magic Johnson was onto something. The Lakers fable tweeted that a Clippers could strech a Western Conference finals if they changed adult in a standings … that would concede them to equivocate a Golden State Warriors in a second spin of a playoffs.

The Warriors positively looked like a frightful matchup for a Clippers after holding on for a 115-112 feat Saturday night during Staples Center in a diversion that wasn’t scarcely that close. Here are 5 takeaways from a game:

DeAndre Jordan refusing to acknowledge a doubt about this topic, looking blankly around a talk room for 10 seconds, doesn’t change a facts. The Warriors have won 5 uninterrupted games opposite a Clippers and warranted a highway brush over them for a initial time given a 2002-03 season. Golden State had assists on 32 of a 42 baskets, apropos a design of unselfishness and group play. “They are arrange of apropos like San Antonio in that they won’t kick themselves, you’ve got to kick them,” Clippers indicate ensure Chris Paul said. “We didn’t promulgate as good as we could have tonight and they done us compensate when we didn’t.” Golden State’s Draymond Green available his 11th triple-double of a deteriorate with 18 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists, apropos a initial non-guard to total 11 triple-doubles in a singular deteriorate given Grant Hill had 13 in 1996-97.

2. The Clippers weren’t good on offense or defense

Clippers Coach Doc Rivers derided his group for station around too most and overly relying on siege plays, observant a bad play on offense bled over to a defense. The Clippers positively had no answers for a Warriors’ consistent slicing and frail round movement. “We gave adult a lot of points on things we went over in shootaround and practice, and when we play a group as good as a Warriors we can’t have those mistakes,” Jordan said. “When we do, they make we compensate for it.”

3. Jeff Green didn’t have a biggest of debuts

His turnovers and inability to stay in front of his male on invulnerability were some-more noted than his 5 points, dual rebounds and one assist. “He didn’t know what to do and we unequivocally didn’t know what to do with him,” Rivers said. “He’s such a good passer, and we suspicion we put him in a stick mark to be a scorer, that we suspicion was not good offense from us.”

4. It felt roughly like a home diversion for a Warriors

Golden State’s baskets were cheered by vast pockets of fans and a group was serenaded with occasional chants of “Let’s go Warriors!” It was roughly wise that a Warriors wore their home whites with a Clippers opting for their black swap uniforms.

5. The report takes an easier spin for a Clippers this week

They can whisper a bit, during slightest in theory, with games opposite a vanishing Phoenix Suns on Monday, sub.-500 Denver Nuggets on Wednesday and turmoil-ridden Sacramento Kings on Friday. Anything reduction than 3-0 should be deliberate a disappointment.
