Clippers have to be demoralized by last night's loss. What could they have done any better? And yet, GSW beat ‘em without Draymond.

Bill Simmons

That was an Alpha Dog win by GSW. Nothing to play for anymore, no Draymond, then Doc chirps pregame and they took it personally. Great team.

Tim Kawakami

Without Draymond Green, Warriors get 61st victory in LA in a game the Clippers wanted badly. Big time. GSWs are steaming towards 66+ wins.

Monte Poole

6:56 left, #Warriors trail #Clippers 94-91. Blake Griffin has 38 pts. Draymond Green is seething from bench. Locker room items be warned

Amin Elhassan

Draymond is talking nonstop everytime the Clippers come on offense.

Amin Elhassan

All the handwringing, all the maligning, all the moaning about lack of Draymond, too many days in LA, etc. -- this is a 7 pt game at half.

Eric Pincus

Are the Warriors missing Draymond Green that badly? Clippers out-playing Golden Stat pretty badly thus far

Marcus Thompson

Blake looking super comfortable with no Draymond. Should be a boost for Green's DPOY candidacy

Amin Elhassan

Still, if Clippers can keep this pace up (30 points after 1st quarter), this might be the game that seals Draymond's legend & delivers DPOY

Amin Elhassan

Here's the funny thing about weepy odes to Draymond: 1- Ws missing easy shots 2- Clippers are the best offense in NBA!

Monte Poole

2:28 left in 1Q: #Warriors trail #Clippers 26-16. Blake Griffin w/12pts. Can you hear @Draymond Green, in street clothes, grinding his teeth?

Amin Elhassan

That's the type of play where GSW misses Draymond. Bogut not quick enough to deter Paul penetration and then recover back to contest Blake J

Diamond Leung

Draymond Green assigned a second-row seat and is joining huddles. Blake-itis no longer bothering him.

Tim Kawakami

Bogut has to guard Griffin with Draymond out, because there's no way they're putting DLee on Griffin. Hurts GSWs' D in multiple ways.

Rusty Simmons

Draymond Green's shins don't hurt anymore. He's ready to play.

Doc Rivers on Draymond Green: "I have a tremendous amount of respect for him, but that doesn't mean you don't want to beat his butt."
