The memes were ruthless on the Los Angeles Clippers and especially Chris Paul, while adoring when it comes to Stephen Curry and the still undefeated Golden State Warriors, overcoming thanks to another choke job by the Clips.
The Clippers somehow managed to throw away a 23-point lead and lose by 7 points. They had a 10-point lead with five minutes to go, but got outscored 22-5 the rest of the way. Doc Rivers didn’t throw his players under the bus this time. Everyone asked about the game simply said the Warriors are better right now.
And what does it say about Stephen Curry when he scores 40 points and you hardly felt him during the game? As if it’s nothing special? How good is he, or can be? How scary and confident are the Warriors right now?
Maybe the Clippers will one day find out how not to lose their heads with a big win waiting for them at the end of the game. Until then, it looks like there’s one less team to worry about in the West for the Warriors.
