What we learned as Warriors squander another lead in loss to Clippers originally appeared on NBC Sports Bay Area

Warriors suffer another nail-biting finish after squandering yet another massive lead, showcasing their ongoing struggle to maintain their momentum.

The Warriors squandered a 24-point lead against the Sacramento Kings, and their lead against the Los Angeles Clippers dwindled from 18 points to just four before ultimately falling short in a 113-112 loss at Arena.

Paul George’s clutch 3-pointer with 8.9 seconds remaining sealed the Warriors’ fate, marking another disappointing defeat for the team.

Golden State’s first-half dominance was eclipsed by their second-half struggles, as they were outscored by 20 points, leading to their eventual loss against the Clippers.

Despite Draymond Green’s strong performance with a season-high 21 points and an impressive shooting display, it wasn’t enough to secure the win for the Warriors. Stephen Curry and Moses Moody also contributed to the effort, but it wasn’t sufficient to overcome the Clippers’ dominance in the paint.

Draymond Green’s exceptional 3-point shooting in the first quarter underscored his offensive prowess, with four successful attempts within the eight-minute mark, showcasing a rare scoring exhibition that invigorated the Warriors’ offense.

Šarić In, Looney Out

Coach Steve Kerr’s lineup adjustments, particularly the inclusion of Dario Šarić and the exclusion of Kevon Looney, highlighted the team’s strategic adaptations in pursuit of a more balanced offensive and defensive approach.

Young Closers

The Warriors’ effort to utilize young talents such as Brandin Podziemski and Moses Moody in crucial game moments reflects a shift towards prioritizing the development and integration of emerging players into the team’s rotation, signaling a potential long-term strategy for their future campaigns.
