The Los Angeles Clippers looked like a totally different team in Game 2 than they did in their Game 1 loss to the Golden State Warriors, whooping them 138-98 on their home floor. The Clippers shot 56.6% from the field and were able to hold the Warriors' normally great three-point shooters to just 4-of-19 shooting from beyond the arc.
Right away, the Clippers looked like a team on a mission and were able to outscore the Warriors 31-20 in the first quarter. They got even better in the second period and took a 26-point lead into the locker room. The Warriors had their best quarter in the third, but they were still outscored by the Clippers 38-32 and eventually lost the game by 40.
As is usually the case when the Clippers win, Blake Griffin was the team's MVP with 35 points after going 13-for-17 from the field, and he also added six rebounds and two steals. Point guard Chris Paul had 12 points, 10 assists and five steals in the win, while center DeAndre Jordan pitched in with 11 points, nine rebounds and five blocked shots.
Stephen Curry never really had a chance to take over the game, but he did finish with a team-high 24 points while dishing out eight assists to his teammates. Klay Thompson, who was the hero of Game 1 for Golden State, took just four shots and ended up with seven points.
