Warriors fearful Cousins tore quad, sources say

Dubs Daily The Starting Five        Check Out Some of the Top Warriors Headlines Around the Web

Klay Thompson's desperation 3-point attempt flew well wide of the mark, cementing the Los Angeles Clippers' improbable 135-131 Game 2 victory over the Golden State Warriors - during which the team overcame a historic 31-point deficit.

Cousins fell to the floor while tracking down a loose ball just minutes into the first quarter and immediately called to be taken out of the game.

The Golden State Warriors wasted no time to get their first postseason win as they topped the LA Clippers 121-104.

Lou Williams led the way for the Clippers, scoring 36 points on 13-of-22 shooting and dishing out 11 assists. He averaged 16.3 points and 8.2 rebounds per game in 30 games this year and will be a free agent once again this summer.

Warriors star Kevin Durant had nine turnovers, his most in a game since joining the Warriors, and scored 21 points on only eight shots before fouling out.

Then when the game was on the line, rookie Landry Shamet, who was acquired in the trade deadline deal sending Tobias Harris to Philadelphia, knocked down the dagger three-pointer to finish the job.

"Warriors All-Star DeMarcus Cousins has been diagnosed with a torn left quad, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium".

Curry followed up a 38-point performance in Game 1 to give him the most 3s in post-season history with another nice showing but Golden State hurt itself with too many miscues.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said his team "stopped playing" midway in the third quarter.

Golden State, the top seed in the Western Conference, is in the hunt for a third straight National Basketball Association championship after signing the 28-year-old center to a one-year, $5.3 million deal last offseason. Embiid, who missed 14 of the team's final 24 games, looked hampered by his injury.

After Klay Thompson missed a shot from beyond the arc, Clippers Landry Shamet hit a three pointer with 16 seconds left for the game victor.

He added, "Once you lose momentum in a game, against a really good team, it's hard to get it back".

"We enjoyed the night of course, but the reality is it's just one game", said Beverley. The big man returned in January from a almost year-long absence following surgery for a torn left Achilles tendon. We didn't deserve to win that game. He used his size and speed to attack the lane and scored 16 points in the half - and then put the game away in the third.

The best-of-seven Western Conference first-round series is now tied at 1-1.

After being booed by their own fans after a Game 1 loss, the Philadelphia 76ers flipped the script in Game 2 and came out with a vengeance.

Harrell backed Williams with 25 points to complement a game-high 10 rebounds for the Clippers, who shot 56.5 per cent from the field.
