The Golden State Warriors are back in action Thursday night, this time against a Pacific Division rival in the Los Angeles Clippers. The Dubs are riding a three game win streak, meanwhile the Clippers have lost three in a row.
Can the Warriors make it four in a row for both ballclubs?

The defending champions from the Bay Area are still without All-Stars Stephen Curry and Andrew Wiggins. But the other Warriors have stepped it up in their absences, especially Klay Thompson the legend.

Kerr: "We've got reinforcements coming. In the meantime, these guys are doing one hell of a job."— C.J. Holmes (@CjHolmes22) March 1, 2023
Meanwhile, the Clippers have a three-headed monster in Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, and Russell Westbrook. Those are three hoopers who have stuffed stat sheets for years and on paper they’re a tough matchup for anybody.
Thankfully these games aren’t played on paper, evidenced by how those guys are winless.as teammates in the three games they’ve played so far.
The Clippers are 33-31 despite getting 47 games from PG (not bad) and 37 from Kawhi (not great, but enough), and having good health for their best role players such as Terance (63), Zu (60), Nico (60), and Norm (53).— Robert Flom (@RichHomieFlom) March 1, 2023
They simply have not been nearly good enough across the board
The last time the Clippers and Warriors squared off, the Clips hit up Golden State for a 44-point third quarter that effectively sealed a 134-124 victory in L.A.
Who ya got, Warriors or Clippers?
