Podcast: Clippers force Game 6

Golden State failed to close things out at home.

NBA: Playoffs-Los Angeles Clippers at Golden State Warriors Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Clippers shocked the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday, winning Game 5 of their first round playoff series 129-121. With the victory, the Clippers forced Game 6, and the Warriors lost the opportunity to clinch a second round matchup against the Houston Rockets.

Kevin Durant was brilliant. Unfortunately for the Warriors, so were Lou Williams, Montrezl Harrell, and Patrick Beverley. Draymond Green played hard - but the entire Clippers squad played even harder.

It was a bad, bad loss, and now the Warriors - massive favorites entering the series - need a road win on Friday night to avoid a first round Game 7.

If you missed the game, or want to relive it, I put together another episode of Wake Up With the Warriors - this episode runs about 10 minutes long, and covers all the important details of Game 5, as well as the scheduling logistics for the next two games.
