Warriors Run Ends in Game 7 Defeat
It had all the drama and excitement you’d want from a Game 7, but the Warriors came up just short in Saturday’s 126-121 loss to the Clippers in Los Angeles. The Warriors led for the majority of the game, but the Clippers made more plays down the stretch of a back-and-forth fourth quarter that featured six lead changes. Stephen Curry went 16-for-16 on free throws and had a game-high 33 points and nine assists, while Draymond Green came through with 24 points, including 5-for-8 on 3-pointers. Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala, David Lee, Jordan Crawford and Marreese Speights each scored in double figures for the Dubs, who led by as many as 12 points. The Clippers got back into the game with a 31-20 third quarter and then scored on their final nine possessions to seize control of the game and advance to the Western Conference Semifinals. The Game 7 defeat ends a great run for the Dubs, who will surely be back and ready to go for the 2014-15 season this fall.
