The Los Angeles Clippers pulled off one of the biggest upsets in playoff history as they mounted an epic come-from-behind victory against the defending champs, the Golden State Warriors, in Game 2 of their first-round series matchup.
A lot of Warriors fans were not happy with how the Dubs blew a huge lead in the second half, and one such supporter was none other than the mother of Warriors forward Draymond Green.
Green’s mom, Mary Barbers, took to Twitter to share her utter disappointment with the defeat. The outspoken Barbers went on a retweet barrage, which included some criticism on Dubs star Kevin Duranr and his apparent lack of focus on the game.
Doc knows he can’t put Beverly on Steph because it’s cookies, so he put him on KD to get in his head and it’s worked 2 games in a row…..

Barbers also appeared to agree with some fans who believes that Warriors head coach got his rotations all wrong in the second half, which may have handed the Clippers with the opportunity to come back.
Finally, Barbers was also feeling for DeMarcus Cousins who may have just played his last game as a Warrior after exiting the ballgame with a potentially season-ending quad injury.

It's been a chaotic last hour here at Oracle but can I say this: I feel very sad for @boogiecousins. Stinks.

Barbers’ disappointment is certainly warranted after the Warriors blew a 31-point lead in what should have been easily a 2-0 series lead for Golden State.
With the series now tied at 1-1, Game 3 in Los Angeles will take place on Thursday night, with the Clippers now with more belief than ever that they might actually have what it takes to defeat the Warriors in this series.
