The Clippers dominated the Warriors all night long. In the first quarter, the Clipper started off with a 14-0 run. The Dubs only scored their first basket under the nine-minute mark of the first.
Scoring was clearly a problem for Golden State, which had to rely on Stephen Curry and D’Angelo Russell for the majority of the night. But the two guards, too, had a relatively tough time against the Clippers defense.
The Doc Rivers-led squad, for their part, got contributions from almost everyone. Seven players were in double digits in scoring led by Lou Williams with 22 points, Kawhi Leonard with 21, and Patrick Patterson with 20 which includes six 3-pointers.
While this is just the first game, it’s a telling sign that this season will be different for the Dubs. Analysts already predicted that the Dubs might not even make the playoffs given their relatively weak lineup.
Dubs fans should not lose hope. After all, the Warriors’ championship mettle is pretty much intact. Steve Kerr is a very credible coach; sooner or later, he’ll figure something out.
