Golden State showed good resiliency fighting back in game 3 from an 18 point deficit but still let the home court advantage slip away in a 98-96 loss. Things may have been different if the referees had called a foul on Chris Paul during Steph Curry's game-winning 3-pointer as time expired but Golden State can't dwell on the past and has to instead focus on tying up the series before it shifts back to L.A.
The series has seen it all in the first three games. From the opening set where the Warriors pulled off an outright win as +7.5 underdogs to a 40-point win by the Clippers in game 2 to Thursday's down-to-the-wire contest, one can only guess where Sunday's game is headed.
The stars have shined so far for their respective teams. Blake Griffin has scored 35 and 32 points the last two games after fouling out in the first contest. Chris Paul has 28 assists in the three games while DeAndre Jordan has grabbed 45 boards. Golden State is still waiting for a true breakout game by Curry, even though he dropped 24 in game two. Other than that a well balanced attack led by Klay Thompson and David Lee has made up for Andrew Bogut's absence.
The Clips have been favored in each game so far including a -2.5 line for Sunday's tilt. The Warriors have a 2-1 ATS advantage but it's the SU wins that count in tight series' like this.
