The pass of four for the Warriors
In this same Western Conference, but in fifth position, we find the Golden State Warriors. The reigning NBA champions beat the Los Angeles Clippers (115-91). A victory that took shape definitively after the break. Because, when returning to the locker room, the locals were behind by a total of eleven units (45-56). The Warriors record their fourth consecutive success, despite having been deprived of Stephen Curry for ten games nowcurrently in difficulty with a knee but whose return could take place this Sunday, at the Lakers.
In his absence, Jordan Poole took responsibility. In the third and penultimate quarter, won 42-16, the back scored 22 of his 34 points. On the Clippers side, only Kawhi Leonard (21 points at 8/12 on shots) was able to respond, while for Paul George (11 points at 3/15 on shots) or even Nicolas Batum (5 points, 1 rebound, 1 against), it was much more complicated.
