The Los Angeles Clippers won a very crucial contest tonight. Taking on the Golden State Warriors at home, both teams were tied at 36-33. It wasn’t only a fight for the 5th seed, but also a chance to level the season series, taking away the advantage from the Warriors. Kawhi Leonard and co. made sure they did just the same.

Stephen Curry erupted for 50 points, trying his best to carry the Warriors over the line and snap an eight-game road losing streak.

However, Kawhi and the Clippers had other plans. Leonard scored 30 points and led the Clippers to a 134-126 win over the defending champions.

There were five other Clippers who scored in double-digits as they secured this important dub. After the game, Paul George spoke to the media about his teammates and Stephen Curry.

The Los Angeles crowd was treated to a spectacle today. Tonight was the first time that Kawhi Leonard and Paul George were playing against Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. The game did not disappoint. Steph exploded for a 50-burger. On the other hand, Kawhi and the Clippers delivered timely buckets and beat the Dubs on the boards and turnovers to take control of the game.

It was a very welcome result for the Clippers, who have now won four games in a row. After the game, Paul George was asked about surviving a 50-point game by Steph. This is what he said,

Praising Kawhi a day after ranking himself above the Klaw is incredibly hilarious. However, Kawhi deserves all the flowers tonight. Along with Leonard, PG also spoke about Russ.

It’s great to see the Clippers clicking and moving past their five-game losing streak.
