NBA Twitter reacts to shorthanded Warriors picking up win vs. Clippers

Coming off a rough loss to the Sacramento Kings that ended their run in the in-season tournament on Tuesday, things got tougher for the Golden State Warriors with a string of injuries to key contributors.

Heading in Thursday’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers, Gary Payton II, Chris Paul and Andrew Wiggins were all ruled out. Despite being shorthanded against Kawhi Leonard, James Harden, Paul George, the Warriors shorthanded rotation didn’t back down.

With a spark from Brandin Podziemski and Jonathan Kuminga off the bench, the Warriors took control against the Clippers. Steph Curry led the way with 26 points on 8-of-15 shooting from the field with eight assists and seven rebounds in Golden State’s 120-114 win over Los Angeles.

Klay Thompson added 22 points on 8-of-18 shooting from the floor with six boards and two assists in 34 minutes. Golden State’s young trio of Moses Moody, Kuminga and Podziemski combined for 43 points against the Clippers.

Following the Warriors’ much-needed win over the Clippers, the NBA community on Twitter chimed in with reactions. Here’s a look at what fans and analysts were saying on Thursday night.
