The Golden State Warriors beat the Portland Trail Blazers in their last outing 113-111, while the Los Angeles Clippers weren’t as lucky as they came away on the losing end of one of their worst losses of the season to the Golden State Warriors (final score 144-98).
Golden State Warriors
The Portland Trail Blazers made a game of it against the Warriors for much of the night.
It seemed like every time Golden State separated themselves from the Trail Blazers, Portland fought back with an answer of their own, and that was on display mostly in the final quarter.
Portland outscored Golden State 37-29 in the final frame, and that almost allowed the Trail Blazers to pull out ahead.
But a final buzzer beater from Evan Turner wasn’t able to hit its mark and the Trail Blazers ultimately took an “L”.
However, that wouldn’t have come about had it not have been for the Warriors defense on the final possession. Golden State forced Evan into taking a tough, off balanced jumper, and he wasn’t able to sink it.
But if they hope to not make their next game as close they need to bring that same effort for 48 minutes of play.
The Clippers aren’t going to just laydown and allow Golden State to come out on top. So the Warriors have got to shut them down early, if they want too send the same message they sent last game.
The Los Angeles Clippers are now 0-2 in the season series against the Golden State Warriors. However, no loss was more troubling then their last one.
The Clippers just came out with little to no effort right from the opening tip, and Golden State took advantage of that.
They outscored the Clippers 31-22 in only the first quarter, but the worst was still to come. In the third quarter they gave up a season-high 45 points to Golden State, and after that their was just no way they were getting back into the game.
It also didn’t help that the Clippers couldn’t even defend their own shadows. I mean they allowed Golden State to shoot 62% from the field, and a red hot 50% from deep.
That’s just not going to win you many games, especially when going up against the best offensive team in the entire league.
So if the Clippers hope to get their first win of the season against the Golden State Warriors, they better be ready to bring it defensively or else this is going to be another long night for the team.

With Chris Paul still sidelined the Clippers are going to be undermanned, so because of that look for the Golden State Warriors to earn their third win of the season against the Los Angeles Clippers.
