The Golden State Warriors are back in Los Angeles to face the LA Clippers on Thursday night. Having split the season series 1-1 with the Clippers so far, the Warriors will look to break that tie with a win in this one.
Both teams have released their injury reports for this game, and Steph Curry is not listed, meaning he will play. The Warriors will of course be without Draymond Green, who is suspended indefinitely by the NBA, but they will have Curry leading the charge.
The Clippers and Warriors played a thriller when Golden State came to LA earlier this month, with Paul George hitting a game-winning three after the Clippers trailed by over 20 points. Holding leads has been a problem for the Warriors this season, as has several other things, and the Clippers took advantage of that.
One of the lone bright spots for Golden State this season has been the play of Curry, who is averaging 29.1 PPG despite being the primary focus of the opposing defense every single night. With both Klay Thompson and Andrew Wiggins struggling, opponents have locked in on Curry even more, often sending multiple defenders to get the ball out of his hands.
The Clippers did a good job on Curry in the second half of their last meeting, and will look to replicate that in this one.
