Matchup Overview

The Los Angeles Clippers will try to extend their improbable playoff run on Friday, April 26 when they host the Golden State Warriors at Staples Center. Tip-off time for Game 6 of this Western Conference showdown is 10:00 p.m. EST.

Clippers Refused to Surrender in Game 5

Someone must have forgotten to tell the Clippers that they were 14-point underdogs in Game 5 because LA looked undaunted in their convincing 129-121 win. Lou Williams led the way once again with 33 points in 34 minutes as LA’s bench mob outscored Golden State’s reserves 59-17.

The Clippers also received a huge lift from super sub Montrezl Harrell, who chipped in 24 points and five rebounds in just 27 minutes off the pine. His ability to play the five has allowed LA to consistently match Golden’s State speed and athleticism, thereby negating one of their biggest strengths.

Clippers Controlled the Paint

One of the keys to the Clippers’ victory was their mastery of the paint. LA outscored Golden State 54-38 in the key and hauled down 10 extra boards.  Much of the credit goes to Patrick Beverly, who corralled 14 rebounds despite being the smallest player on the court. His tenacity has set the tone for the Clippers all series and has kept the Warriors noticeably off balance.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr addressed Beverly’s energetic play after the game. “I thought Patrick Beverley came in, just kicked our butts right away,” he said. “He came out with more energy than we had.”

Warriors Heavy Favorites Entering Game 6

Online sports betting sites have us excited for Game 6, as they’ve set the game total at a healthy 235, with the Warriors opening as 9.0-point favorites. Golden State is 37-49-1 against the spread this season and 41-46-0 over/under, compared to 48-38-1 ATS and 49-38-0 over/under for LA.

Green Has Been MIA

Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, and Klay Thompson combined for 91 points in Game 5, but received little-to-no help from Draymond Green, whose impact has yet to be fully felt on this series. The three-time All-Star is averaging just 8.3 points over the last three games and has become a non-factor on the perimeter where he’s shooting under 20% this postseason. Granted, he’s dealing with a sore wrist, but Green will need to start taking – and making – more threes if Golden State is going to improve its spacing and reach the NBA Finals once again.
