Warriors Defeat Clippers in Intense NBA Showdown
Klay Thompson scored 10 straight during a key fourth-quarter stretch, while Stephen Curry had 26 points, eight assists, and seven rebounds as the Golden State Warriors held off the Los Angeles Clippers 120-114 in the NBA on Thursday night. Both teams were missing key players, but the game was decided by Thompson’s scoring explosion. The Splash Brothers came through for the Warriors, who lost guards Chris Paul and Gary Payton II to injuries, as well as Andrew Wiggins. The Clippers were led by Kawhi Leonard and James Harden, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Warriors’ lead. The teams will meet again on Saturday in Los Angeles. Despite the absence of key players, the Warriors emerged victorious, with Thompson leading the charge.
