Clippers brought playoff intensity in Game 1, and Warriors matched it

first_img Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters “They actually respect each other, they like each other, but they’re gonna compete against each other, and they wanted to tell each other about it.”The talk Saturday and still Sunday morning before practice at the University of San Francisco: This is the playoffs, this is what it’s supposed to be like.“You work all year to get to the playoffs, and you kind of want that atmosphere, you want that energy,” Lou Williams said.“I like to see people battle, I love that,” Warriors forward Draymond Green said. “K was 8 for 16 with 23 points, so pretty solid night at the office.” Kristaps Porzingis ruled out as Clippers, Mavericks set for Game 5; Follow for game updates They were blocked 14 times and failed often to convert on transition opportunities: “We threw the ball all over the place, we hit guys in the back of the head, we hit guys in the arms –– our own guys. We had four-on-ones, three-on-twos, three-on-ones and we kept coming up empty,” Rivers said.And there was the matter of keeping cool in the lion’s den that is Oracle Arena.You’ve just got to find a way to do it,” said veteran forward Danilo Gallinari, who Saturday drew just his 17th career technical fouls (15 in the regular season and, now, two in the postseason). “We can’t afford to have those moments because you give them a couple of free throws and the ball. They don’t need that much to get into a rhythm or to score two or three 3s in a row, so we need to do a better job of that.” For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Beverley’s defense might have somewhat subdued Durant, a 28.7 points per playoff game scorer, but while the 6-foot-1 guard was pestering the Warriors’ 6-9 superstar, Curry was frolicking in the backcourt and on the boards. He made history as the top playoff 3-point shooter of all time with his eight 3-pointers and grabbed a postseason career-high 15 rebounds.“We made like 10 critical mistakes on Curry,” Rivers said. “One of the things we said before the game, the last two days, ‘Make a mistake on someone else, please no mistakes on Curry.’“And we kept doing it and he kept taking advantage of it. I give them credit, he’s so smart, he took advantage. It felt like every time we made a mistake, Curry took advantage of it.“Some of those (shots) were open and they just can’t be. He came out just bare-naked open on five or six pick-and-roll plays and that can never happen, that literally can never happen. And it did, and that’s on us.”Slowing Curry might be at the top of the checklist, but it’s a long list: Beside Montrezl Harrel’s 26 points and Lou Williams’ 25, the Clippers were stifled offensively. Clippers not in contention for Sixth Man of the Year shot a combined 16 for 58 on Saturday.The Clippers also were outrebounded 53-40 in addition to collecting 17 turnovers – four fewer than the Warriors, whose 21 turnovers felt inconsequential because the Clippers failed to capitalize.Related Articles Coaches and players attributed the ejections to an abundance of caution by official Ed Malloy, insisting that otherwise they were unwarranted.“He’s a Chicago kid, grew up and played in the Chicago area, so those dudes play with a different type of grit, so I can appreciate that about Pat,” added Durant, who grinned widely during his interactions with Beverley. “I thought it was fun.”Ditto, said the Clippers’ fiery leader: “It was fun out there.”Rivers agreed: No harm, no foul.“The Pat and Durant thing I liked,” Rivers said. “It’s funny, neither one of those guys were trying to fight or anything like that, and it looked like both of them were actually enjoying it, having fun. SAN FRANCISCO – A snarling, lips-flapping, arms-flailing Patrick Beverley might not seem like anyone’s ideal guest, but after the Warriors won Game 1 of their Western Conference first-round series against the Clippers, they seemed pleased to be hosting him.It’s as if Beverley’s infectious intensity inspired them too as they embarked on a quest for a third consecutive NBA title. That’s unfortunate for the Clippers, whose composure was tested as neither calls nor shots went their way in Saturday’s 121-104 loss, when Steph Curry doused them with 38 points, one fewer than the Clippers’ entire starting lineup scored.Beverley and Durant both will enter Game 2 on Monday night at Oracle Arena with two technical fouls apiece of the seven allotted in the playoffs. Both were T’d up twice within 19 seconds and ejected with 4:41 left Saturday.“I’ve been playing against Pat Beverley since he was at Arkansas so I kind of know what he brings,” said Golden State forward Kevin Durant on Saturday night, when put up a relatively ho-hum 23 points with Beverley guarding him tightly, yapping all the while – or until both were bounced, anyway.
