Clippers completed a historic comeback to defeat the Warriors



The Los Angeles Clippers completed a historic comeback against the defending champs Golden State Warriors after overcoming a 31-point lead with the final score of 135-131.

Clippers victory became the greatest comeback in NBA Playoffs history.

Their sixth man of the year candidate Lou Williams scored game-high 36 points and dished out 11 assists. Montrezl Harrell added 25 points and 10 rebounds off the bench while Danilo Gallinari.

Patrick Beverly really helped the team to complete the comeback with his defense on Kevin Durant. His 1-on-1 defense limited him to just 8 attempts in 34 minutes. He was fouled out from the game after he was called for an offensive foul on Draymond Green.

Warriors are led by Stephen Curry who had 29 points and 6 assists in 34 minutes.  Kevin Durant, who fouled-out from the game, had 21 points on 5-to-8 shooting. Klay Thompson added 17 points in 32 minutes.

In just 4 minutes of the first quarter, Demarcus Cousins went to the bench with a left quad injury and expected to miss multiple games this post-season. He'll be undergoing an MRI to examine his injury.  He was replaced by Kevon Looney who had a career night scoring 19 points on 6-of-6 shooting.

Game 3 will be played on Friday (Thursday, USA) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
