The Los Angeles Clippers are the walking dead.After the greatest comeback in NBA postseason history in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series with the Golden State Warriors, the Clippers lost back-to-back games at home.This series is over. Make no mistake about it, but the Clippers can prolong the inevitable, as the Warriors still need to end it.Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson combined for 65 points, and the Golden State Warriors defeated the Los Angeles Clippers, 113-105, in Game 4 of their best-of-seven playoff series at Staples Center.If Easter Sunday was the final home game of the season for the Clippers, then they definitely did not go quietly into the night. After losing by 27 points in Game 3 on Thursday, the Clips came out with something to prove in Game 4.Unlike their start in Game 3, where they surrendered 41 first quarter points and trailed by 17, the Clippers began the game making a statement to the Warriors: we wont go down without a fight.The Clippers actually took a 22-20 first quarter lead before Thompson and the Warriors went on a 12-0 run to end the first frame.The Clippers clawed and scratched their way back into the game, trailing by just four points with three seconds left in the half, but Durant drained a three, and got fouled, to complete a four-point play just before the break.Any shots you can make going into the halftime, whether its a lay-up, or a four-point play, thats good for momentum, said Durant. Basketball is all about momentum and flow, and they had it. Even though it was just four points, it was good at that time for us to get a little bit more separation knowing that they had some momentum going into the half.Clippers head coach Doc Rivers thought Durants four-point play was a pivotal play in the game.It was a big play, said Rivers. We should have trapped him. Thats what we were trying to do. No one came. Thats a great example at the end of that quarter, I think we have a four-on-one, Pat Beverly pulls up for a three, we get nothing out of it, and they come down and get a four-point pay. Thats just the way the game goes. Cant get it back.The Clippers resiliency continued throughout the game. Every time the Warriors made a push, the Clips pushed back. Every time the Warriors hit the Clippers with a punch, the Clips counterpunched. L.A. played inspired basketball during stretches throughout the game, including an 18-7 run in the third quarter that put them up five.Youve got to keep punching, Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. Youre going to get hit. You have to throw punches back. I loved how we fought. I loved how we kept coming back.Unfortunately for the Clippers, the Warriors landed the knockout punch in the final few minutes of the game, and hung on to defeat the Clippers, sending the series back to Oakland with the three-time defending Champions up 3-1.We already let one slip away, said Thompson who had 27 points in the first half and a dagger three late in the fourth quarter. Tonight we came in with that mindset to put our foot on the throttle and not let go because we let go in Game 2 and we wont do that again the rest of the Playoffs. I really believe that.Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the Clippers with a career-high 25 points, the most by a Clippers rookie in the playoffs in franchise history.I saw spots where I could take advantage offensively, and I tried to do so today, said Gilgeous-Alexander of his offensive explosion in Game 4.Patrick Beverly and Lou Williams each had 12 points, Montrezl Harrell had 10, and Danilo Gallinari finished with 16 points, as the Clippers now find themselves on the brink of elimination.If those two guys -- and those are our two key offensive guys, struggles, then its going to be hard, very, very hard for us to win against anyone, let alone Golden State, said Rivers about Williams and Gallinari combining to shoot 7-for-30.This could be the last time Los Angeles fans see Patrick Beverly, Garrett Temple, and JaMychal Green at Staples Center. They are all unrestricted free agents at the end of the season.Thompson got hot in Game 4, scoring 32 points and sinking six three-pointers. Durant had a team-high 33 points, seven rebounds, and six assists.The ball was just finding me, said Thompson of his hot-shooting. I didnt do anything special. I was just getting open and knocking down shots, playing in a good rhythm, see a few go in, and then all you need is a little space.Stephen Curry was in foul trouble for most of the first half, but still finished with 12 points, 10 rebounds, and seven assists in the victory, the Warriors fifth consecutive on the road in the playoffs dating back to last season.NextThe Warriors can close out the Clippers in Game 5 at Oracle Arena on Wednesday.Photo Credit: Harry How/Getty Images This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.

The Warriors knew the truth about Game 2.They should never have lost. As Sri Lanka Mourns, ISIS Claims Easter Bombings If not for the greatest comeback in NBA postseason history, the Warriors would be up 3-0, and on the precipice of a first-round sweep of the Los Angeles Clippers.So when the Warriors went up by 31 points with 7:10 left in the third quarter on Thursdaythe same lead they lost in Game 2this time they kept their foot on the gas. N. Ireland: Woman Arrested in Slaying of Journalist McKee I think everybody felt like we had that game in hand last game, said Warriors forward Kevin Durant. A 30-point lead. Hasnt happened in 30 some years. Its kind of natural and normal for anybody watching that game to kind of relax, right Even at home. But the players cant do that. I think we did that. I think that was just a smart lesson that we can learn from.Durant made sure it didnt happen again, scoring 38 points as the Golden State Warriors walloped the Los Angeles Clippers, 132-105, in Game 3 of their best-of-seven series at Staples Center. Supreme Court to Take Up LGBT Job Discrimination Cases He came out super aggressive, in kill mode, said Draymond Green who finished with eight points and 10 assists. I think he was due for a game like this. Theres been a lot of talk about him and that matchup with Patrick Beverly. How many people can stop Kevin if Kevin dont want to be stopped He showed that tonight.Durant made his impact felt early and often, scoring 27 points as the Warriors took a commanding 21-point lead at the half.I think Coach Steve Kerr came up with some plays for me at the start of the game, said Durant of his hot start. I think doing that kind of set the tone. Just putting pressure on the defense through post-ups, through dribble handoffs. We was just more patient tonight, to sum it up.In fact, the Warriors have taken commanding leads in each of the first three games of the series, and have led for 135 minutes of the 144 played in the series thus far.They led by 19 points in Game 1, 31 points in Game 2, and by as many as 36 points in Game 3.If not for a lack of defensive focus in the fourth quarter of Game 2, the Warriors and Clippers matchup would look more like a varsity team taking it to their JV counterpart.The game got away from us the other night, everybody knows that, said Warriors head coach Steve Kerr. We just had to keep the same mentality and same defensive focus. We have to play the full 48-minutes. We did that tonight.Stephen Curry added 21 points, and the Warriors set the tone early with 41 points in the first quarter, as they led wire-to-wire for the easy win in Game 3.High energy, high focus. We tried to set the tone early in the first six minutes, said Curry of the difference in the in the first quarter. As much momentum as we lost in the final 16 minutes of Game 2, we got it all back early. Everybody was clicking. Seemed like every possession we knew what we were trying to accomplish on both ends of the floor. Everybody was aggressive, decisive, getting good shots on every possession. Helped that most of them were going in.Not only was everything going in, but Durant and Curry saw the rim look more like the Pacific Ocean as everything they shot went splash in the first quarter. The Warriors shot 80 percent from deep in the first 12 minutes and 70 percent from the field overall.They came ready to play. said the NBAs presumptive 6th Man of the Year Award winner Lou Williams of the Warriors. We embarrassed them on their home floor that last game. Im guessing thats how they felt. They made a concerted effort to come back and respond tonight.A win on Easter Sunday, and the Warriors can send the Clippers to the brink of elimination, and close out the series at Oracle next Wednesday.Before the game, Clippers head coach Doc Rivers said he still had nightmares that his team was down by 31 points in Game 2. He admitted that if they went down 31 again in Game 3, it wasnt going to turn out as well.He was right.With the Warriors more focused on not making the same mistake twice, the Clippers comeback fell well short of the miraculous victory they stole in Game 2.Its just not very smart to get down by 31 points, said Rivers after Game 3. Honestly, I dont care who youre playing, if you get down, its hard. The better the team, its harder. So to think youre going to do that against them again is fools gold.Williams only had 16 points and Montrezl Harrell finished with 15. Ivica Zubac had 18 points and 15 rebounds, and was the only Clippers starter in double figures.To say we were embarrassed is accurate. We got beat by 30 points on our home court, said Zubac. I just have to play harder. I have to do my best every possession and in what I do. I have to be a star in my role whatever it takes. I need to be aggressive as I can be.The Warriors were definetely the aggressor on Thursday, as they outplayed the Clippers in nearly every facet of the game. They outrebounded the Clippers, 50-43, had more assists, 35-to-21, and had 11 blocks, compared to just two for L.A.After struggling from the field in the fourth quarter of Game 2, the Warriors shot 55 percent from the field in Game 3, and a scorching, 43 percent from beyond the arc.NextGame 4 is set for Easter Sunday at 12:30PM PT.Photo Credit: Harry How/Getty Images This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.
Todd McLellan was peppered with questions about walking into a rebuild with the Los Angeles Kings. The new head coach was adamant: I chose to come here.McLellan, 51, was introduced as the 29th head coach in franchise history Wednesday, taking over a team that finished with the second-worst record in the league and its worst season in more than a decade. Kings Face Offseason With Potential for Many Changes He came to LA for three reasons: the people, the plan and the autonomy. He trusts the people in the organization, starting with General Manager Rob Blake, whom he coached in San Jose.He was impressed by the detailed plan in place, and he accepts the responsibility to make that plan a reality. LA Kings Hire Former Sharks, Oilers Coach Todd McLellan The plan is weve got to become a younger team, McLellan said. I believe the way the game is played now, we have to look at how we play and make adjustments that way. I think the old dogs have to learn new tricks as well. Thats going to be the key blending the old with the new.McLellan is familiar with the Kings, having coached in the Pacific Division for 11 seasons with the Sharks and Oilers and making the playoffs in seven of his 10 full seasons behind the bench. Map: Heres What Will Be Closed Through May 6 at Griffith Park In some strange way, I feel comfortable being here, McLellan said, pointing to the rivalry between the Sharks and Kings.Blake said his relationship with McLellan started with their time together with the Sharks.It goes back to San Jose days, Blake said. We had a relationship. I got to see through numerous meetings, through playoff years, through good times, through bad times.There might be some rough times before the McLellan-led Kings turn the corner, and he was willing to accept that reality. But McLellan believed the issues last season were due to how the team approached a down season.Its more of the players giving permission to have the off-year, McLellan said. Thats unacceptable. This team won Cups because of attitudes and character. Not because they were the most skilled.McLellan said he has heard complaints from veterans such as Drew Doughty, who said he wants a coach who will come in and kick our ass a little bit.And hes willing to do that.Obviously, theres a clear message and Im prepared to do that, McLellan said. I accepted that responsibility when I chose to come here. But that has to be a partnership between player and coach. They have to accept the poking and prodding that a coaching staff is going to do.Moreover, he said, its also on the players to do their fair share.If the players are making the comments, some of thats on them as well, McLellan said. Theyre winners. Theyve proven they can win. They just need to elevate their standards a little bit more and I have to help them do that.McLellan noted that the Kings were in the playoffs this time last year. Somewhere between that team and last seasons team is reality.Were running a marathon and were at mile one, he said. Thats where the plan starts. Weve got a lot of hard work ahead of us.Photo Credit: NHLI via Getty Images
