To merely call it a victory is an understatement; this was a thrashing from the get-go.
Blake Griffin checks out with 14 points, 3 rebs, 3 assts in 1Q. Clippers lead Warriors 35-12. Yes, 35-12.— J.A. Adande (@jadande) January 6, 2013
How good is Blake Griffin tonight? The Warriors just quadruple teamed him.— Arash Markazi (@ArashMarkazi) January 6, 2013
After Blake Griffin checked out with those 14 points in the first quarter, he didn't need to do much more. Chris Paul would take over from there.
If Griffin was the stack of onion rings before the meal, Paul was a 16-ounce porterhouse that came with a baked potato, a big salad and some steamed broccoli. Needless to say, the Warriors couldn't eat it all.
Paul scored 27 points on just 12 shots against the Warriors, all while putting on a ridiculous show with DeAndre Jordan every chance he got.
Back-to-back lobs from Chris Paul to DeAndre Jordan has turned this into full-blown humiliation— Marcus Thompson (@gswscribe) January 6, 2013
Chris Paul is throwing lobs to DeAndre Jordan off the backboard and from halfcourt. Clipeprs are straight clowning the Warriors, 94-56 in 3Q— J.A. Adande (@jadande) January 6, 2013
His case for the MVP award is really starting to come together nicely.
