The Golden State Warriors blew a 31-point lead HAHAHAHAHAHAHAaahaahahHAHAHAa.
The Los Angeles Clippers 31-point comeback halfway through the 3rd quarter is the biggest comeback in NBA playoff history. With 7:30 left in the 3rd, the Clipper decided to run the ‘win the game’ play and my god, they executed perfectly.
Lou Williams scored a game-high 36 points seemingly willing his way to the basket any time he wanted. It doesn’t matter if Rachel Nichols lies about voting Klay Thompson onto her All-Defense team, Lou Williams made Klay look like a civilian out there.
And then Landry Shamet sealed the game with a DAGGER from 3.
Montrezl Harrell was unstoppable. He is one of the few players in the NBA who goes full speed on every single play and never appears to look even a little bit fatigued at any point in the game. He goes 0 to 100 and stays at 100 all game long.
Danilo Gallinari has morphed into one of the most steady scorers in the league. Galo dropped 24 points on 8-17 shooting with 4 rebounds, 6 assists and 2 steals. There is something about having him on the court that just centers their entire offense. At this point in his career, he knows exactly what he can and can’t do and brings poise and calm to a lineup full of rabid pit bulls.
Speaking of pit bulls, Enter Patrick Beverly.
Patrick Beverly has been matched up against Kevin Durant for the first two games of this series in a decision that many would dismiss as a cute move you make when you’re the 8 seed playing a 1 seed that’s probably going to win the championship.
Kevin Durant is a seven-footer and Patrick Beverly is 6-foot-1. On paper, this matchup makes no sense. Until it manifests itself on the basketball court and you see the science behind it.
Beverly is a maniac whose sole purpose is to make you uncomfortable when you catch the ball. Durant is a 7-foot child who gets the wind knocked out of him anytime he runs into a screen. Beverly is half his size and twice as strong as him.
Every time Durant had the ball in his hands, it was wartime. KD ended the game with 21 points on 5-for-8 shooting with 9 turnovers. He had more turnovers than shot attempts. *Patrick Beverly clap*
Both players ended up getting fouled out…in both games so far. Steph Curry and Klay Thompson cannot be mentally thrown off by Beverly’s antics. Durant can. All KD is thinking about is which apartment in the Upper West Side he’s going to rent and why Kyrie Irving left him on
RIP to Kevin Durant. Murdered in cold blood by Patrick Beverly on live television. What a damn shame.
