This is just the 7th playoff game since 05 to have a total of 230 or more points! The under went 5-1 in the previous six games. Clippers are playing with a lot of grit and contended for the first half in the opener. I think the only way anyone can in playoff mode stop the Warriors is attempt to slow the pace just a bit. I know that isn't Doc's style with this particular team but I think a wise coach such as Rivers makes adjustments based off what he saw and slows it down. I like the Under here tonight.
My Pick: Under 234
- 50 Agree
Warriors beat em by 17 points and they didn't play good first half and a lot of turnovers. I look for them to fix the small mistakes and roll again tonight
My Pick: Golden State -13.5

Just like the past 4 seasons the Warriors come out and walk teams the first two games to let teams know that at any time we can handle you. They do it again tonight before easing up in game three.
My Pick: Golden State -13.5
- 58 Agree

Join us Monday at 7:30 p.m. for all the live scoring, news and analysis as the Warriors host the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 2 of their first-round Western Conference playoffs series at Oracle.
The Warriors, who grabbed a 1-0 series edge with Saturday night's 121-104 victory, weren't satisfied with how things went, despite the win. Golden State was sloppy at times (a whopping 21 turnovers, many of the careless variety) and also watched as star Kevin Durant seemed to get baited into an episode with Clippers antagonist Patrick Beverley that saw both ejected.
San Jose Mercury News: Warriors Looking Forward: Dubs can take control of Clippers series
Steph Curry carried the Warriors to a Game 1 win over the Los Angeles Clippers Saturday evening with his remarkably efficient shooting.
He finished with 38 points on just 16 shots and also chipped in 15 rebounds, taking over the game and starting the Warriors off on the right foot in the first-round series.
Draymond Green's improved shooting also buoyed the Warriors during the first half when the Clippers' bench, but whether he can sustain that level of production remains to be seen.
Game 1 also saw Steve Kerr turn to the Warriors' "Death Lineup" earlier than anyone would have expected, jumpstarting Golden State's intensity after the LA bench's first-half run.
CSN Bay Area: Warriors have one thing they need to fix heading into Game 2 vs. Clippers
OAKLAND - With his team up 12 points midway through the third quarter of Saturday's win over the Los Angeles Clippers, Kevin Durant received a pass from Kevon Looney, marking the start of a fastbreak, and immediately threw a cross-court pass over Draymond Green's head, resulting in his second turnover.
The play characterized Golden State's offensive output Saturday evening. Despite overwhelming the Clippers in a 121-104 Game 1 win, the Warriors showed, even while dominating, the focus must be on the little things.
"We weren't focused," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said following the team's film session Sunday.
Golden State Of Mind: Warriors vs. Clippers Game 2 Preview: Durant vs Beverly II
The start of the NBA Playoffs over the weekend was hardly devoid of any drama as nearly half of the series saw the lower seed pull off a Game One upset.
But even with a cold shooting night from Klay Thompson and a Kevin Durant ejection, the Warriors still managed to handle business, knocking down the first of their sixteen roadblocks along the tumultuous path to 3-peat glory.

San Jose Mercury News: Unleashed: Warriors 121, Clippers 104
"Cry 'Havoc!,' and let slip the dogs of war."
Last night at the Oracle, a cage door opened, and the dogs of war were unleashed. The 82-game prelude to the NBA's postseason was a drawn-out exposition with moments of rising action that tepidly held our interest--and the players' too--but more or less took the shape of a perfunctory long march to the real starting line. In that long march, potential energy was stored, and last night it was finally made kinetic in the first game of the playoffs against a plucky, overachieving Los Angeles Clippers team led by Doc Rivers on the Bench and Patrick Beverley on the floor.
Golden State Of Mind: Warriors are too much for Clippers in game 1, probably for the rest of the series, too
There were at least two instances last night when a Los Angeles Clipper defender opted to just outright hug Stephen Curry to stop the destruction. In a way, it's the ultimate sign of respect, like tipping your king over in a game of chess. At one point, it occured during a one on five fast break - one where Curry had already dribbled through and around nearly all of them looking for a shot; one player just reached out and bearhugged Curry rather than let him continue his hunt.
On that play, you could almost here the defenders worrying about becoming a famous gif.
Golden State Of Mind: Warrior Wonder: Stephen Curry dominates the Clippers to open 2019 NBA Playoffs
The Warriors played their first game of the 2019 NBA Playoffs on Saturday night, welcoming the Los Angeles Clippers to Oracle Arena. The Warriors began their title defense with an impressive 121-104 win and, as Dub Nation has come to expect over these past seasons, it was Stephen Curry who led the way.<strong>The long-distance assault</strong>
In Game 1, Curry scored 38 points, which was the most he scored in a playoff game since scoring 40 points against the San Antonio Spurs in Game 1 of the 2017 Western Conference Finals.
Golden State Of Mind: The Golden Breakdown: How the Warriors strangled the Clippers into submission
It has been five long years since the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Clippers last faced off against each other in the NBA Playoffs. As many Warriors fans remember, the 6-seed Warriors took the 3-seed Clippers to 7 games and lost a close but highly competitive series.
So competitive, in fact, that it flared emotions on both sides to all-time highs. When the likes of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Steve Blake, and Marreese Speights used the infamous secret tunnel in Staples Center to confront their Clippers adversaries in their locker room, that says something about how much the two teams absolutely despised each other.
San Jose Mercury News: Warriors: Draymond Green makes Clippers pay for ignoring him
OAKLAND -- Draymond Green was decisive from the start, and that was just what the Warriors needed.
Green, facing a Los Angeles Clippers defense that sometimes almost dared him to shoot, scored 13 first-quarter points without a miss to set an early tone in the Warriors' 121-104 victory in their playoff opener on Saturday night.
Green actually outscored his three more offense-minded teammates, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson 13-11 all by himself over the first 12 minutes to spark a 36-27 start by the two-time defending NBA champs.
"It was great and I hope he keeps not hesitating the rest of the series and the playoffs because the Clippers have been doing this to him a couple games this year," Thompson said.
CSN Bay Area: Warriors takeaways: What we learned in 121-104 Game 1 win over Clippers
OAKLAND -- Though there were a few perilous moments Saturday night, most of which were salvaged by Stephen Curry, never did the Clippers offer a legitimate threat to the Warriors.
The defending back-to-back NBA champs rolled to a 121-104 win over Los Angeles, taking a 1-0 lead in their best-of-seven first-round NBA playoff series.
Behind Curry's sharpshooting and spells of excellent defense, the Warriors took a double-digit lead midway through the third quarter and maintained it until the final horn.
The only suspense in the fourth quarter came when Kevin Durant and Clippers guard Patrick Beverley were ejected after a brief skirmish.
