Was Steph Curry telling Ty Lue to call timeout after his third straight fourth quarter 3 or giving the referee a response technical?

Eric Bledsoe on guarding Steph Curry: “It’s hard because sometimes, we were just talking about it, sometimes you think you got him covered and he’ll get a ball up and have a wide-open layup and turned it down just to look for him for a three…” 1/2 – 6:51 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Ty Lue said that when he said he might have to put players in different positions offensively, he meant that maybe change his playcalls. But he said that 95% of the NBA is pick and roll. Bottom line, he said, Clippers have to be better, more efficient, in PNR. – 6:41 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Ty Lue said that he felt that Clips “ran Bled into the ground” without an extra ballhandler due to Reggie Jackson’s foul trouble. Didn’t want to make an excuse for the turnovers, but acknowledged that Jackson’s rough game contributed to awful offensive showing today. – 6:40 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Ty Lue estimated that of the Clippers’ 25 turnovers, 13 or 14 were “bad.” “Maybe I got to put our guys in different positions.” – 6:35 PM

Warriors 105, Clippers 90 | Final | Ty Lue kinda called it before today’s 25-turnover game: “We’ve been talking about it for, I guess, the whole season — just taking care of the basketball. (If) we turn the ball over against this team, they’re gonna make you pay.” – 6:18 PM
Carl Steward @stewardsfolly
Curry is just 37 3-pointers away from breaking Ray Allen’s career mark of 2,973, and at his current pace, the record-breaker will be hard to achieve at home. Figuring 5 per game, it would happen at New York on Dec. 14. If not, there are 2 more road games after that one. – 6:18 PM

Warriors are 2-0 against Clippers this season after 105-90 win. A bad week for Clippers, who have now lost 5 of 8 since winning 7 in a row.
LA had 25 turnovers today, and that was without having any in last 9:11 of the game. But game separated for good once Stephen Curry lit up. – 6:00 PM

Steph Curry will finish with 33 points. Made seven more 3s. Sealed it with a three 3 flurry in 75 fourth quarter seconds, right after he was nearly ejected for getting after the referee. The Warriors are 18-2. – 5:54 PM

Jackson is still scoreless, and Clippers offense is still in hell. Warriors lead 84-70 with 7:48 left. LA down to two timeouts for rest of game.

That Steph Curry technical was brewing. Was mad about the offensive foul call he got on a pass-and-crash. Then didn’t get a shooting foul on a transition layup. Got up and into the official’s face. One T, teetering on a second and ejection. But only got one. – 5:38 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
That’s as mad as Steph has been on the floor since the Warriors were getting blown out in Staples last year and he was yelling at the bench. – 5:38 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Curry gets a technical foul after a no-call on the fast break… and Reggie Jackson stays scoreless after missing the free throw.
(Lesser lights would have been ejected the way Steph exploded into the ref, but you could understand. Curry got hit in the face) – 5:38 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
The refs have kind of lost control of this Warriors-Clippers game. To make it worse, they’re trying to get it back by calling technical fouls on both teams. – 5:38 PM

An eventful third quarter sees Warriors add five points to their halftime lead.
It’s Warriors 75, Clippers 68.
LA has allowed 27 points off turnovers and are sub 40% from field, sub 30% from 3. They’re still in it, but they’ll need Reggie Jackson (0 points in 13 minutes) – 5:31 PM

Hartenstein’s flex after the block cost him a T and Poole going off afterwards – 5:29 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
The #1 (Warriors) and #2 (Clippers) defenses in the league + an early afternoon tip in LA = 44-42 at halftime. Warriors up two. 21 combined turnovers. Teams shooting 37 percent combined. – 4:42 PM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
A slow first half all around in Staples. Warriors have the slight 44-42 edge, but both teams are struggling to shoot the ball and are coughing the ball up.
Warriors are shooting 41% from the floor and 31% from 3. Nine TOs. Also 6-for-13 from the free throw line… not great. – 4:42 PM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Warriors Clippers | Half | The Clippers’ best offense: Free throws: 11-15. Otherwise, they shot a hesitant 14 for 41 (34.1%) and turned it over 12 times.
Similar situation for GW, tho: Dubs are 16 for 40 with 9 giveaways. But they’re 6 for 19 from deep… & 6-13 from the stripe. – 4:42 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Defensive struggle confirmed.
Warriors up 44-42 in battle between two best defenses in the NBA.
Make no mistake, though… this game has had abominable offense from both teams. You can make any defense look good with the gaggle of subpar shooting, missed bunnies, and turnovers. – 4:41 PM
Kerith Burke @KerithBurke
The Warriors average 114.5 ppg and they’re the only team in NBA this season to score at least 100 ppg in every game. That streak may be coming to an end…Warriors lead the Clippers 44-42 at halftime. – 4:40 PM

Rare timeout inside of 2:00 of first half by Ty Lue, but it was necessary after yet another pick-six by the Clippers.

Steph Curry’s been a sneaky-great defender this season. Love how he doesn’t back down and does a good job at forcing turnovers – 4:33 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Paul George (10 points) joins Marcus Morris (11 points) as the only Clippers in double figures in a wildly low-scoring first half. It’s 40-40 with 2 minutes before halftime. – 4:32 PM

The Golden State Warriors say they have assigned guard Klay Thompson and center James Wiseman to the team’s G League affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors. – 4:31 PM

Luke Kennard had 3 turnovers in first 13 games this season… has 12 in last 7 games, including 2 today. Some of the indeciveness on the ball that plagued his pre-All-Star break season last year rearing its head this month – 4:30 PM

Warriors and Clippers both sub-40pct FG.
And both have had numerous open looks – 4:19 PM

Both the Warriors & Clippers should feel fortunate they’re still in the game despite their poor shooting numbers, and that neither opponent has taken advantage much of their turnovers. – 4:18 PM

Turnover City: Clippers have 9 thus far. Warriors, 7 with 9:53 to go in the second quarter.
Not part of TLue’s plan: “When we have 10 turnovers or less, then we usually score the basketball, we play pretty well, but when we have 19, 20, 21, 22 turnovers, it’s hard … to win.” – 4:15 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Predictably snoozy first quarter for Warriors, who trail Clippers 24-20.
Six turnovers, outrebounded 17-10 – 4:08 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Steph Curry continues to hold up well defensively this season in various settings. Paul George gets Curry matched up on him, calls for the mid post isolation, Curry strips him after two power dribbles. pic.twitter.com/MZJeKNlEaB4:06 PM

Clippers 24, Warriors 20 | End 1 | The Clippers have forced six turnovers — and turned it over six times. Marcus Morris is 3 for 6, 2-4 from deep for nine first-quarter points. Steph Curry’s got six to lead the Dubs. – 4:05 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
End of 1: Clippers 24, Warriors 20
Best-case scenario start for Marcus Morris with 9 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists. – 4:05 PM

With his second made three vs. the Clippers, Steph Curry arrives at 100 threes made in 19 games, passing his own record for fastest to reach 100 threes in a season. The previous record was 20 games, set by Steph in 2015-2016 and 2018-2019. – 4:03 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
The Clippers have lost Steph Curry for about a second each on two Warriors possessions and it’s led to six points by Curry. – 4:03 PM
Golden State Warriors @warriors
Fastest player to ever reach 100 threes in a single season:
1. Stephen Curry – 2021-22 (19 games)
2. Stephen Curry – 2015-16 (20 games)

Problem is, Kennard’s shot hasn’t come back yet. Missed 8 of 10 3s Friday, missed his first two 3s today.

Both teams are 4 for 8, both teams with early turnovers — four for Golden State, three for the Clips.
LA leads: 11-10, 6:52 1st. – 3:49 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
You wonder about the familiarity this Clippers group is playing with. Luke Kennard in with the starters and Marcus Morris; those two haven’t overlapped much this yr. Already one moment where it looked like they were trying to figure out if it was a Luke screen or Morris postup. – 3:48 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Eric Bledsoe has hit a fourth catch-and-shoot three in his last two games after making 25% of them entering his last game.
“It’s been there for us all season, and if he doesn’t have the shot, he can catch and put it on the floor and create for someone else,” Ty Lue said pregame – 3:45 PM

Tyronn Lue noted that Warriors’ rebounding has been outstanding this season, and that he is concerned with not turning the ball over and igniting their lethal fast break offense

Kerr on the 1 v 2 defenses in the league meeting: “Their physicality, they’re length at pretty much every position. They added Bledsoe who’s kind of a bulldog defensively, I think Ty has coached against us 40 times … so he knows our team.” – 2:12 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Klay Thompson and James Wiseman remained back in the Bay Area during this four-day Warriors road trip. Klay is increasing the intensity of his scrimmaging, Wiseman is still not yet cleared for 5-on-5 contact work. – 2:07 PM
Kerith Burke @KerithBurke
Per Kerr, Klay and Wiseman are not on the roadtrip. Klay is doing 5×5 scrimmages, Wiseman continues his work, Kerr doesn’t think Wiseman is scrimmaging yet, he does not ask team doctors daily. They’ll tell him when Wise is ready for next thing. – 2:07 PM

+James Wiseman is not yet doing 5-on-5 – 2:06 PM

Andre Iguodala got back on the court yesterday. First time since his knee swelled up. He will miss his sixth straight game today. Won’t return in Phoenix on Tuesday. But getting closer. – 2:06 PM

Andre Iguodala is on the road trip with the Warriors. He got some on court work in the other day, but Steve Kerr doesn’t expect Iguodala to play in either road game. – 2:05 PM

Game notes gem: Stephen Curry is two 3-pointers shy of 100 for the season. If Curry makes two 3-pointers against the Clippers, he will break his own NBA record for the fewest games needed to reach 100 3-pointers in a season. – 12:16 PM
