It seemed like the Clippers-Warriors series was going to turn out to be an inevitable sweep for the defending champs, but the Clippers didn’t seem to get the memo.
Trailing by as much as 31 points in the second half, L.A. stormed back and completed an improbable comeback to win game 2, 135-131. The 31 point comeback marks the largest in NBA playoff history, which broke the Clippers own record of a 27 point comeback in the 2012 playoffs.
Lou Williams lead the way for the Clippers, scoring 36 points off the bench, while Pat Beverley set the tone for the comeback on the defensive end.
The loss wasn’t even the worst part for the Warriors in the game: DeMarcus Cousins went down in the first quarter, suffering a quad injury. The Warriors are concerned at the moment that Boogie may be out for the remainder of the playoffs.
