Warriors’ scorers endure poor shooting night, still roll Clips

Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson combined to shoot 39 percent on 51 shots on Wednesday and it still didn’t matter.

The Golden State Warriors rode their defense and a hot-shooting night from Draymond Green to a 115-98 blowout of the Los Angeles Clippers, a team many expected to be the Super Dubs’ top competition in the Western Conference this season.

Green was dominant on both ends of the floor. He went 8-for-10 from the field, including three 3-pointers, with five rebounds and four assists. He did that while guarding Blake Griffin, Los Angeles’ best offensive player, who was limited to 12 points despite shooting 20 shots.

“Honestly, I don’t even think we played well offensively tonight,” Green told reporters after the game.

He may have had a point as Curry was held without a made 3-pointer and Kevin Durant was held to 16 points on 17 shots. But as a team, the Warriors managed to limit turnovers to 11 while still throwing 31 assists.

Head coach Steve Kerr said after the game that he was considering sitting some of his players today when the Warriors play the Utah Jazz.
