NBA: Golden State Warriors vs LA Clippers Injury Report; Will Stephen Curry miss the match?...

 

The Golden State Warriors visit Crypto.com Arena to take on the LA Clippers on Monday. The two teams are facing off for the third time this season and the Warriors came out victorious in both their previous encounters. Stephen Curry erupted in the fourth quarter in both the games to put the Clippers away.

 

The Warriors are coming off a nail-biting victory against LeBron James and the LA Lakers. Klay Thompson felt like himself again, draining five three-pointers en route to 33 points. He dropped 16 of those 33 points in the fourth quarter as he sunk clutch shot after shot.

 

Stephen Curry is back in the MVP conversation and we can expect Draymond Green to return after the All-Star break. The Dubs hold the second-best record in the NBA at 42-15 and are still the league’s best-ranked defense.The Clippers, on the other hand, are struggling to stay above .500 for the season.

 

They acquired Norman Powell ahead of the NBA trade deadline and are operating under the expectation that their star forwards Kawhi Leonard and Paul George will return sometime later in the season. They currently sit as the eighth seed with a 28-30 record and it looks like they are stuck in the play-in tournament spots for now.
