Los Angeles Clippers @ Golden State Warriors 15th April 2019 Game 2 was a record-breaking game and the underdogs did the record-breaking on their terms….
The Los Angeles Clippers overcame a 31 point deficit, the biggest since the NBA began recording the stat in 2000 to beat the Warriors who have 5 all-stars and are last season champions.
Not even halfway through the third quarter the Warriors got out to a 31 point lead, slowly but surely the Clippers fought it back and the last half of the fourth quarter was a tense battle.
Here are the big plays from the last 2 minutes of the match:
Kevin Durant is fouled out on an offensive foul call
Lou Williams fakes a drive, drops back and sinks a shot to tie it
A big time shot or for Steph Curry just something normal
Lou Williams with ease drives the lane and fades back, Clippers down by 1
A wide open Klay Thompson misses a chance at putting the Clippers down 4 points. Harrell gets a big rebound.
The two Clippers rookies connect putting the Clippers up by 2 points
Steph Curry one of the best shooters ever gets a good look but misses, Montrezl Harrell gets the rebound and is fouled.
Cool as a cucumber; Harrell sinks both free throws and the Clippers lead is now 4.
Down 4 the Warriors needed more than a miracle. They go to Klay Thompson again who misses an uncontested 3 point shot and time expires.
