It’s the 1 vs. the 4 seed, which could provide us with an early Conference Semi Finals showdown as the Golden State Warriors head into Los Angeles to take on the Clippers.
The Warriors, like many teams, will be in the 2nd leg of their back to back as they will visit Portland on Friday night.
One of those teams who are unlike? The Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers clobbered the Spurs at home on Thursday night and will enjoy the off day before Steph Curry and company come to town.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors created quite the scene in the first half of the season.
Losing just 4 games, Golden State still only manages a 4.0 game lead on the Spurs right now for the 1 seed. Still, it’s tough to imagine the Warriors coughing up the spot, as no team proved to be a match for them.
Golden State handled the best of the best as they routed Cleveland, Chicago, San Antonio, Oklahoma City….it didn’t matter who was put in front of them.
Golden State was one of the very few teams who played no part in the trade rumors. They essentially shut their phones off, for obvious reasons, as there isn’t too much change you want after starting 48-4.
The Warriors have won 11 straight games and are in the midst of a 7 game road swing. Prior to the break, they went into Phoenix and started things off with a 112-104 win.
Golden State has averaged a ridiculous 121.4 points per game during their 11 game winning streak and will play 17 of their final 24 games at home following the next 6 on the road.
The Clippers and Spurs got off to very slow starts as both teams looked very sluggish from the opening tip.
However, it was the Clippers who eventually woke up as Los Angeles got a marquee win to start off the 2nd half. With the win, the Clippers now sit 4 games back of 3rd place Oklahoma City and 4.5 clear of 5th place Memphis.
The Clippers name came up a tremendous amount over the past few weeks following the Blake Griffin incident. It looked as if Los Angeles was done with Griffin after punching a team manager and earning himself a suspension.
However, they decided it was in the team’s best interest to keep him on board, as he will return in the 2nd half of the season after serving his time.
Meanwhile, Chris Paul continues to lead an impressive charge as he once again turned in a phenomenal night. He went for 28 points and 12 assists to lead the team.
He’ll have the daunting task of dealing with Curry, while it will be Redick likely on Thompson.

Free Golden State Warriors vs. LA Clippers NBA Prediction:
The Clippers looked like they meant all business on Thursday in what was one of their most impressive wins of the season.
Now that the deadline is passed, it’s clear they will welcome Griffin back with open arms and this team is ready to move forward.
However, here, it’s tough to not think Golden State will come out pumped up for this one. The Warriors have played top teams in the league extremely tough and continue to blow them out.

This may not be a blowout, but Curry and Thompson are just too much here for the Clippers.
