Warriors GM Bob Myers takes a seat next to Jarrett Jack at Staples Center, and they're chit-chatting.
I just alerting them I would be starting a rumor
Bob Myers sitting/chatting with Jarrett Jack
Several tough calls today gives the fourth quarter an interesting plot twist, mostly for Clippers
Warriors finish third quarter on 8-0 run, take 8-point lead into the fourth. That guy Draymond Green is currently +10. Lee is +7.
Warriors close third with excellent ball movement, leading to O'Neal layup. Warriors up 87-79 enter fourth
David Lee informed the crowd that Blake Griffin has five fouls before the PA announcer could.
David Lee starts screaming "FIVE! FIVE!" after drawing Blake Griffin's fifth foul
Warriors go big(ger) with a frontline of O'Neal, Lee and Green
Mark Jackson did not kid when he said he's use Jermaine O'Neal, Marreese Speights, Hilton Armstrong and Ognjen Kuzmic. Speights was key.
Green in for Barnes.
David Lee was asked the other day on the radio about the "empty double-double." He's stepped up to the Blake Griffin matchup today.
Warriors really could use Andre Iguodala on the court, but he's got five fouls. Looks refreshed coming off rest from knee tendinitis.
Grifin's doing a little talking. I think that's stirred up something in Lee. He's gotten his swag back
A pump fake!!!!
Jermaine O'Neal is basically double-teaming Griffin at all times. Which will get a defensive 3-second call every now and then.
Warriors/Clippers playing a game of HORSE in the playoffs...impressive quality and level of shooting on the floor
Jermaine O'Neal dunks on Jordan then gets a steal, which leads to a Lee layup. Warriors have their largest lead, 77-73
There have been 34 fouls. Curry and Lee are only starters from either team yet to take a free throw
Oops, Klay has Paul. I mean Barnes is coming off of Redick to give help.
Clippers backcourt (Paul, Redick) outscoring Warriors' (Curry, Thompson) 38-28
Paul just picked up his fourth foul
OK this is better.
This quickly turned into a shootout
Redick must feel so free when Iguodala is out
Iguodala's fifth foul at 9:41 in the third quarter.
Andre Iguodala has five fouls 2:19 into the third quarter.
That's 5 on Iguodala
You knew Doc Rivers was ready to ride Blake to start this half.
Blake vs. Lee is perhaps not a good match up for the GSWs.
Ran into Joe Lacob who laughed when he was told there's a viral photo of him glaring during the first half. "I'm expressive!" he said.
Warriors got swarmed early and often, desperately needed Speights' energy to stay afloat, and are shooting 38.3%... still tied.
Clippers only got 4 minutes from Blake Griffin and about 2 minutes of good play (out of 18 on the court) out of Chris Paul... still tied.
Should the Warriors be happing about a 52-52 tie considering foul trouble poor shooting? Or disappointed since Griffin played just 4 mins?
Dragging, dragging foul-plagued first half... 52-52, and both sides have plenty of reasons to believe they can play much better.
CP3 is taking himself out of the game trying so hard to draw fouls
The Warriors say Draymond Green has a right leg bruise. He's back in the game.
Draymond Green is standing up on the Warriors' sideline. Looks OK.
Armstrong with a rebound an assist already
Running the offense through Hilton Armstrong. Of course.
Hilton Amstrong and Marreese Speights are the Warriors bigs right now
Hilton Armstrong is in the game?
This is not David Lee's best game. He's 2-for-6 for four points, having committed 4 turnovers and having had his shot blocked 3 times.
David Lee has missed 4 shots and 3 of them were blocked.
Pump fake. That's all
Again, the Warriors let the worst FT shooter in the series get a shot off
Green heads straight to locker room, walking on his own but limping
Draymond Green going to the locker room
Draymond Green is headed to the locker room with head athletic trainer JoHan Wang.
Green is still wincing and grimacing ... he's about to come out
Draymond Green is trying to run off some right knee pain.
Draymond gets up slowly after tweaking his knee
Iguodala just picked up his fourth foul
Just like that, lead gone
I don't understand why Speights would even let Jordan get a shot off
The Warriors have their first lead of the night (34-31) on a Klay Thompson three-pointer with 6:54 remaining in the second quarter.
The Warriors have their first lead of the night (34-31) on a Klay Thompson three-pointer with 7:05 remaining in the second quarter.
Warriors take lead on Thompson's first 3 34-31
Chris Paul slapped Iguodala and foul went on Redick
Jarrett Jack sighting at Staples Center
That's the 17th foul called in 14 minutes, nine seconds of action
Splash Brothers back ... Jackson's gamble pays off
Crawford slapped Crawford so loud, we could hear it on the other side of the court.
Speights draws a charge on Blake Griffin, who immediately walks to the bench with 3 fouls now
Thirty-nine seconds after returning to the floor, Blake Griffin picked up third foul.
Jackson brings back same five reserves ... meanwhile, Clippers bring Blake Griffin
Difference so far has been at the line. Clippers have made 5 more FTs. Everything else about even
I called that as soon as Crawford shot it
David Lee exhausted. Missed games late in year, thrown into high intensity. Adrenaline gone.
Clippers are 6 of 11 from the FT line. That's going to be something to watch this series
Curry ties game with his first basket, a 3 off the pick and roll
Iguodala to be replaced by Harrison Barnes after picking up his third foul
Andre Iguodala picks up his third personal foul -- hitting Jamal Crawford on a three-point attempt.
Warriors are going to attack Jamal Crawford on offense.
Warriors survived initial onslaught ... Assuming Lee will play better and Curry will get going. Its enough to make Doc nervous, for sure
Curry with a beautiful outlet pass to Iguodala for a dunk. Clippers timeout, lead down to 15-10
Can already tell I'll be doing a lot of blocking today. Calm down or just read somebody else.
Warriors small with Lee at center. DeAndre Jordan stays in game (with Blake on the bench)
Curry vs. the World already, I would say.
Warriors move Curry off the ball, make CP3 chase him
Lee is checking back in, Jermaine O'Neal out.
My wi-fi connection is on pace with the Warriors, so I might not be checking in very much from here.
Thought this game might start a little slowly because of 12:30 tip. I was correct but only for one team.
Warriors looking stunned by Clippers' aggression on both sides. GSW currently 0 for 8 with 4 turnovers. Down 12-1.
And there is the first lob ... Warriors 0-for 8 from the field ... Mark Jackson takes another timeout
Klay won't get more open than his last one ... he's 0-for-3
O'Neal has drawn two fouls on Blake Griffin ... Blake forced to come out with 8:46 in first
