The Golden State Warriors start the playoffs by hosting the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 1 in a best-of-seven series.The Clippers have exceed all expectations this summer after trading away Avery Bradley and Tobias Harris. In return, the Clippers picked up Landry Shamet and Ivica Zubac. Both players have been outstanding in their roles.The Clippers have beat the Warriors once in the past two seasons and are the clear favorites to win this series.
The Los Angeles Clippers play with great unity and togetherness. And have many talented parts and are one of the best defense teams in the league. They are a great all-a- around team reminiscent of the 1960s Boston Celtics that used to wreck the NBA.The Los Angeles Clippers pulled off major a major win early in the season against the Houston Rockets, Golden State Warriors, and Spurs. Against the Golden State Warriors without Stephen Curry, the Clippers Bench scored over 50!While the Clippers do not have a single all-star, the Clippers have over 5 players that are capable of averaging over 20 points per game, making them a threat to most teams. However, in most wins, the Los Angeles Clippers bench is key. The The Los Angeles Clippers have the best bench in the NBA. If the Clippers are going to win tonight, they are going to need a collective team effort!
The Warriors suffered from a litany of injuries this season that kept them from performing well. However, the Warriors are still by far the best team in the NBA and can blow any team if they play at full speed. And I mean any team!From their 2017-18 playoff appearance, the Warriors have lost Nick Young, David West, Javale Mcgee, Zazz, and Patrick McCaw. These are formidable veteran players that were great defenders. However, the Warriors have picked up Demarcus Cousins and Andrew Bogut. For the Warriors, Stephen Curry is the key for their offense and Draymond Green is the key to their defense. Without those two players, the Warriors are vulnerable; especially to a team as good as the Clippers.

Key to the Warriors success tonight is going to be Stephen Curry.Stephen Curry has been given the OK to play tonight after missing the Warrior’s last game against Memphis. In their games this year, Stephen Curry has torched the Clippers. In their last matchup, he scored 42 points game against the Clippers and averaged 32.3 points on 54-percent Field Goal Percentage against the Clippers this season.
Similarly, KD has averaged 27 PPG against the Clippers this season and 29.5 against the Clippers at Oracle. However, the Clippers now have Danilo Gallinari and Patrick Beverley back for game one from their regular-season finale against Utah.
I expect the Warriors to pull off an upset and walk away with a hard fought win at home!
