★★★
Even when the Golden State Warriors lose, they do it in unbelievable fashion. According to CSN Bay Area, the Dubs 32 point loss on February 19th was the largest margin of defeat by the defending champions since the Miami Heat lost by 42 points to the Chicago Bulls in 2006.

Golden State can redeem themselves tonight in a primetime matchup against the rival Los Angeles Clippers. The special 5:30 p.m. PST tip-off takes place on ABC and can also be streamed on WatchESPN.

The Clippers are three and a half point underdogs at home against the visiting Warriors, who own the Association's best road record at 24-5. Los Angeles is 1-5 SU in their last five games against Golden State, allowing an average of 115 points per game in those losses.

The OVER/UNDER line for tonight's matchup is tentatively set at 224 total points. The total has gone OVER in nine of Golden State's last 12 games when playing in Los Angeles according to OddsShark.com. However the total has gone UNDER in four of the Clippers' last five games.

In other news, the Clippers tweeted a picture of Blake Griffin and Matias "Iron Jaw" Testi enthusiastically shaking hands on the bench (notice BG's left hand cocked and ready for more), with the hashtag "FAMILY".



As Nate Parham always says, troll hard or don't troll at all. Nate spoke, and the internet listened.

To make matters worse, the Clippers deleted the tweet the very next day.
