The Warriors got clipped Monday night, yet they weren’t the first team this season to blow a major lead against the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Clippers went 9-24 when trailing by 15 points or more during the regular season. That is the winning percentage of an NBA lottery under typical conditions, however those nine rebound wins were the most in the league this season.
LA likewise returned from deficits of (at least 20) three times on a seven-game road trip in Feburary, however Golden State’s 135-131 misfortune in Game 2 of the NBA playoff first-round series was historic … for the wrong reasons, if you’re a Warriors fan.
Brilliant State’s blown 31-point lead was the largest in NBA playoff history.
Obviously, Warriors fans have seen those digits previously, however they’ve most likely covered them somewhere down in the openings of their memory after the 2016 NBA Finals.
To add injury to insult, the Warriors lost enormous man DeMarcus Cousins in the main quarter with what the group supposedly fears is a season-finishing torn quad. The idea of the Clippers’ rebound will stand out forever, however Cousins’ damage could finish up feeling like an a lot greater misfortune.
