Golden State Warriors at L.A. Clippers Game 2 game thread: Going for 2-0

The Warriors look to go up 2-0 in a playoff series for the first time in decades.

Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sport

So normally at this point, I'd be thinking to myself that the Golden State Warriors just getting a split in the first two games of a road playoff series is enough - stealing home court advantage is the first step to winning a series as the low seed and having Roaracle to look forward to gives the Warriors a much better shot at winning this thing than we might have first expected.

But now I'm getting a little greedy.

In addition to potentially making a little more history this season, a win tonight would shut down the notion that Game 1 was a fluke that the Clippers only lost because of poor officiating - tonight the Warriors have a shot at further proving the doubters wrong (and yes, I was among them entering this series), which would just make the win that much sweeter.

Regardless of the outcome, let's just hope that the refs don't become the story again.

Go Warriors!
