Warriors Clipped in L.A.
Stephen Curry tried to shoot the Warriors back into the game but a 19-point second-half deficit proved too much to overcome in Thursday’s 126-115 road loss to the Clippers. Curry knocked down four of his nine treys in the fourth quarter, but it wasn’t enough on a night that saw the Warriors issue 24 turnovers. Clippers guard Chris Paul forced several of those turnovers, as he tallied six steals to go along with his jaw-dropping 42 points and 15 assists. Curry finished with 38 points and nine assists and David Lee had 22 points and six rebounds in Golden State’s first loss of the season. Andre Iguodala logged his first double-double (14 points, 11 assists) with his new team and Andrew Bogut added 17 points for the Warriors, who will look to get back on the winning track on Saturday when they host the Kings.
