The first quarter alone belonged to the chef, who welded his first four triples through the Reuse and was immediately on fire. For the Warriors, however, this did not pay for a comfortable lead, as the defense hardly found funds against the hosts. When curry cooled in the second half then, golden state came under the wheels and conceded the third defeat from four games.
26 of his 33 counters scored curry in the first half, as a whole, he met 11/18 from the field and 8/13 from Downtown. The teammates weakened, however, andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole were already the second best Warriors scorer with 13 points. The second Splash Brother Klay Thompson did not find at all in his rhythm (7, 3/14 FG).
A completely different picture on the other side, for the clippers six players cracked the double digits. With 25 points (11/17 FG), Terance Man set his career repair for the Regular Season, Reggie Jackson flirted with a triple-double (19, 9 assists and 8 rebounds), Ivica Zubac came to 18 and 8 boards and Isaiah Hartenstein shone With 9 points and 6 rebounds from the bank. The German stand in 23 minutes at +10.
Overall, L.a. Excellent 56.5 percent of its field thread attempts, the clippers also had only a threesome less on the account as a Golden State, but dominated the zone (54:40). Thanks to Hartenstein, who, among other things, with an alley-Oop shortly before the end the domestic fans enthused.
L.A. Clippers fight against the full curry boom
They got the full curry boom in the first quarter: three threesome in a row in the middle of the section were the best proof of his hot hand, first his fifth attempt from the distance was his first evening disturbing – and also that was extremely scarce.
So 16 of the first 26 Warrior’s points went to the Splash Brother’s account, but the clippers held against it. On the one hand with good accents in the zone (9 points from Zubac in the first quarter) or also from Downtown. Both teams enthusked with a fire shot and taken together 14/24 from the distance. The Warriors had a slight advantage after the first quarter (37:34).
Curry, after a short break, continued where he had stopped in the first quarter. The Warriors went at least with +8 in front, but then was offensively suddenly the worm in it. The home owners turned the game with a 13: 0 run for almost five minutes, to which Hartenstein contributed a triple before curry woke up again. The 33-year-old shortened shortly before the half-time break at 59:61 from Dubs view – of course from the parking lot.
In the cabin, however, the dubs obviously handled the wrong target water. The shoot from the first half was suddenly, in the third quarter only one of the seven Warriors experiments landed from the distance in the basket. Wiggins held something over water at Golden State in this phase, but L.a. took over the control gradually.

The advantage of the clippers quickly became two-digit, man was hard to hold more. In the third quarter alone, he scored 14 points and L.a. sat down to 18 meters. A real breaking of the Warriors did not exist anymore in the final section. Instead, both sides delivered application letters for the top 10, Jonathan Kuminga brought Hartenstein to the poster, the German revancidated with a crashing Alley-Oop. At the exit of the game, that did not change anything anymore.
