Paul George and Kawhi Leonard both scored 21 points each as the Los Angeles Clippers got the better off a very tired Golden State Warriors. The Dubs have been in action on back-to-back days, which made them evidently less energetic in this particular game. With Stephen Curry only managing to score 13 points and particularly 1 form downtown, it justified the Dubs performance. Paul George scored a double-double with 21 points and 12 rebounds.
Talking about the Dubs, Eric Paschall and Andrew Wiggins both scored 19 points. But having made just 8 from 30 attempts from behind the arc, one could imagine the sloppiness of these players. Curry even tweaked his ankle, but luckily for the Dubs, it didn’t seem to be serious

Marcus Morris Sr. made his season debut after being sidelined by a right knee injury but didn’t think the teams should have played. It wasn’t discussed, he said.
“It’s hard to really put it into words just the direction this country is going in,” Morris said. “… It’s just unfortunate the state that we’re in in this country.”
“It was so disheartening,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “I think everybody came into the arena this evening just sort of dazed.”
Draymond Green received a Flagrant-1 foul with 4:58 left and Leonard converted both free throws. Patrick Beverley made a 3 with 4:14 left, then Nicolas Batum hit from deep the next two times down.
Having said that, the Golden State Warriors have won 4 in 8 games so far in the season. Given that the players, had back-to-back games this week, let’s see how they perform in the next match with their couple of days off.
