“Clippers Comeback to Beat Warriors 130-125 Despite Leonard’s Absence”

The Los Angeles Clippers defeated the Golden State Warriors 130-125 in a comeback win. Although missing their leading scorer, Kawhi Leonard, due to a left leg injury, the Clippers managed to come back from a 12-point deficit in the fourth quarter.

Paul George and Norman Powell made the most of the Warriors’ weak defense to score 24 and 21 points respectively, with Powell making four 3-pointers in the final 7:03 of the game.

Stephen Curry had an impressive performance, scoring 41 points and making seven or more 3-pointers for the fourth consecutive game, making him the first player in NBA history to achieve this. Despite Curry’s efforts, the Warriors lost their five-game winning streak due to their inability to maintain their early lead.

The game was heated at times, with Clippers center Mason Plumlee receiving a flagrant foul and Clippers coach Tyronn Lue receiving a second technical foul and being ejected from the game.

Despite the win, the Clippers have lost 20 of their last 24 games on the Warriors’ home floor. The Warriors’ rookie, Brandin Podziemski, had a good night, scoring a career-high of 25 points, but it wasn’t enough to secure a win for his team. The Warriors’ coaching staff was incomplete as some members traveled to Serbia for a funeral and missed the team’s previous game.
