For 20 seconds on Tuesday night, Golden State’s Steph Curry looked like Oakland native Gary Payton. The Glove moment came midway through the first quarter when Curry deflected a pass from Blake Griffin to Chris Paul, went around a DJ screen and deflected the ball again from Paul, causing a scramble with Blake diving to the floor to retain possession, only to have his 2nd pass attempt to Paul deflected again by Curry. After another short scramble, Paul ended up with the ball and Draymond Green on him with 3 seconds left on the clock so he passed back to Blake Griffin at the 3-point line. Blake failed to get the shot off and I’m sure you guess why. The forced shot-clock violation was rewarded with cheers, a butt slap by Klay Thompson and some dap from Draymond.
The new-look Warriors were also pretty decent on the offensive end, outscoring the Clippers 120-75 and keeping them under 20 points for each of the first 3 quarters.
