When we reflect on Clippers-Warriors Game 7, the turning point of the game for the Los Angeles Clippers will likely be the monster DeAndre Jordan block on Stephen Curry that turned into a Blake Griffin alley-oop slam.
After splitting the defense it seemed that Curry was prime to score an easy lay-up, giving the Warriors a one-point lead with a little under two minutes left on the clock in the fourth quarter, but a heroic effort by DeAndre Jordan, one that included knowing which had Curry would attempt to hit the layup with, ended up being the turning point of the game.
