Join us for live news and analysis Monday at 7:30 p.m. as the Warriors take to the road to face their new-look rival Clippers in Los Angeles.
For the first time in 10 years, the Clippers (7-5) don’t have DeAndre Jordan, Chris Paul or Blake Griffin on their roster when they’ve faced Golden State.
The Warriors (11-2) were no doubt impressed by the Clippers’ 128-126 overtime victory over the Bucks, who routed the Warriors a week ago. Lou Williams’ driving layup with 0.3 seconds left gave L.A. the victory. Montrezl Harrell, a former Rocket, had a team-high 26 points off the bench and indicated the Clippers aren’t overly excited about facing the Warriors.
“They’re another basketball team, man,” Harrell said. “They lace their shoes up, put their uniforms on just like we do. And they’ve gotta come in here and play us.”
The Warriors will have Green back after their All-Star power forward missed the past two games with right foot issues. Also returning will be backup point guard Shaun Livingston, who sat out the last seven games with a sore right foot.
Golden State is coming off an impressive 116-100 victory at home over Brooklyn on Saturday night in a game that saw Quinn Cook sizzle as Stephen Curry’s replacement. Cook had 27 points on 11-of-16 shooting, including 3-of-5 on 3-pointers against the Nets. He also had five assists and no turnovers.
Cook will start again Monday for Curry, who tweaked his groin against the Bucks and is considered day-to-day.
The Warriors will return home to face Atlanta on Tuesday night, which Curry will also miss.
