The Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Clippers will do battle in Game 1 of their Playoff series on Saturday afternoon, with both teams desperate to get their postseasons off to a winning start. The game will take place from the Staples Center in Los Angeles and will start at 3.30 p.m. ET. The action can be watched on TV on the ABC network or online through free live stream (details below).
This game promises to be a fantastic Playoffs match up between two very talented sides. When people think of the Warriors and Clippers, a traditional of rivalry does not immediately jump to mind, however, recently during regular season match up there has definitely been some bad blood boiling, with various cases of hard fouls, a number of ejections and technical fouls.
However, despite some strong play, the basketball between these two teams is often a joy to watch, and arguably the two best point guards in the NBA will be on display today.
For the Clippers, Chris Paul is always a tough for opposition defenses to handle, and he regularly takes up the time of two defenders, and that allows his teammates more space to attack.
For the Warriors Stephen Curry has been excellent from three point range – so much so that the Clippers may attempt to force him to score on layups instead to try and contain him.
Both of these teams have strong defensive units, and they often shut down opposition offenses. However, when they've come up against each other there has not been a lack of points, with the winner between the teams scoring 110 points or more in three of the four regular season meetings between the two.
