Los Angeles Clippers vs Golden State Warriors / NBA – The Clippers made an unbelievable feat in the second game of play-off and won game in which they were trailing behind for even 31 points in the third quarter! That is the biggest return in NBA history and great slap in the face of reigning NBA champions. The series move to L.A. now where next two games will take place.

Los Angeles Clippers
After the Clippers lost the first game in the series by 104-121 they started the second one quite badly and at one point had -31 points. Almost everyone in the arena thought then the reigning champions are about to win another game but not the Clippers’ players, who bit by bit reduced the backlog. Rookie Shamet scored go-ahead three-pointer 16.5 seconds before the final whistle and luckily Curry missed in the Warriors last attack, and the series is equalised now 1-1.
That was a great thing for L.A. team although it was the third time this season that they lost game which they were losing by over 20 points. After the Clippers reserve players scored 65 points in the first game they helped the starts even better in second with even 83 points, out of which Williams scored alone 36 pts (and had 11 assists), Harell added his 25 pts and 10 rebounds. The two of them are the first bench players in NBA history who scored together over 25 and more points in one game since statistics started to be kept in season 1970/71.
Probable lineups Los Angeles Clippers: Gilgeous-Alexander, Shamet, Beverly, Gallinari, Zubac
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors not only lost a game but they were literally shamed in front of their fans. Any team and especially NBA champions that losses game in which it had lead of 31 points should ask itself what has happened. Definitely one of reasons was centre Cousins injury in 4 minute, who will skip the third game because of it (and perhaps the entire play-off), and large number of turnovers (22), although they had plenty of mistakes in attack in the first game (21).
We are certain that the Warriors will react in this game, regardless that will be played away. Coach Kerr will definitely make certain corrections. Still, it was surprising how weakly played so experienced players, although many reminds now that three years ago the Warriors lost the final in which they had lead of 3-1 and the home-field advantage. The defeat put an end to Warriors seven-game winning streak in the play-off (that includes the previous season).
Probable lineups Golden State Warriors: Curry, Thompson, Durant, Green, Bogut (Looney)
Los Angeles Clippers vs Golden State Warriors PICK
As we have said, everyone expect now the Warriors response and many are sorry about the Clippers in advance because of “revenge.” The Clippers showed in the second game that are capable for impossible, although it will be very difficult to pull something like that in the third game despite having the home-field advantage. Simply, the Warriors must not allow mistakes like it was the second game.
Pick: Warriors -8.5 points
