Steph Curry Blames "Lack Of Intensity" For Warriors Game 5 Loss

It's the continuation of the opening round of the playoffs as a pair of teams from the Pacific Division meet in the City of Angels.

The reporter followed up by asking about Golden State's identity specific to the current series.

And that was all well and good - there's no use in complaining about being up on the Warriors at halftime, but as one of the best second half (specifically third quarter) teams in the National Basketball Association, the Clippers would need to weather another storm before us fans seriously started to think that they were going to pull off another upset.

Golden State edged the Clippers in the final quarter, 27-25, and things got far too close for comfort in the final minutes. The Warriors were unable to contain the Clippers' offensive attack and now has to deal with going on the road for this contest. Golden State was up 118-117 with 2:40 to play before getting outscored 12-3 the rest of the way. "And we gave up 129 points on our home floor, and they shot 54 percent".

Golden State dropped 41 points in the first quarter, but Durant feels the Warriors' inability to remain aggressive was their undoing.

However, they will now travel to Los Angeles for a sixth game. The Warriors are 1 in the league by dishing out 31 assists a night.

"They have talent all over the floor", Curry said. Durant is putting up 32.0 points and shooting 56.4 percent overall and 38.7 percent from the 3-point line.

After Game 5 loss, Steve Kerr chafes at question about 2019 Warriors' identity: "What's the identity of our club?" He's also had to juggle his rotation and go with smaller lineups more often than anticipated. "This is a seven-game series, and you gotta play". To that point, their eight-point lead at the half was LA's largest of the series.

In Game 5, he did it again, recording 33 points and 10 assists.

The Clippers are now 4 in the league in the postseason in scoring offense with 115.6 points per game. Yes, he's predicting a Game 6 victory.

The Clippers are hoping forward Danilo Gallinari picks up where he left off last game as well.

His points tally, number of made field goals and number of three-pointers made are all series-highs.

Lou Williams didn't care, though. The ratings scale is 1-5 stars. Game 4 marked the first time that the starters actually produced but the bench group was kept in check.
