Following an epic 31-point comeback victory for the Los Angeles Clippers, in Oakland, which shocked the Golden State Warriors, who completely collapsed down the stretch, Warriors guard Steph Curry is still in shock.
“If I had the answer for it, a night like tonight wouldn’t happen,” Curry said, according to Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic. “This game is tough, it’s hard to win playoff games no matter what the matchup is, no matter what the history is, the regular season, team versus team. It’s tough.
“For six-and-a-half quarters we played amazing, had a 31-point lead. The wheels fell off. I know we can get it back. We’ve got to put together 48 minutes of it, just a collective energy, positivity around everything we do.”
While it was somber in the locker room following defeat, Curry knows that it’s time for the team to respond.
“The locker room was down, as it should be, because every game matters to us,” said Curry. “We’ve just got to bounce back.”
