The Golden State Warriors weren’t going to let another 31-point lead slip away on Thursday night at Staples Center.
The two-time defending NBA champs bounced back from their disastrous Game 2 loss in dominating fashion, as they throttled the Clippers from wire to wire en route to a 132-105 victory. Warriors fans, and noted Lakers fan Snoop Dogg, were quite pleased with last night’s effort.
As seen in the video embedded below, Snoop took to instagram after the Clippers Game 3 loss to troll Clippers superfan Clipper Darrell, as well as the rest of Clipper nation.
Kevin Durant led all scorers in Game 3 with 38 points on 14-of-23 shooting, to go along with seven assists and four rebounds. Golden State built up a 35-point cushion at one point and this time around they didn’t relinquish the lead.
“He came out super-aggressive, in kill mode,” teammate Draymond Green said of Durant, according to ESPN. “That was all the difference for us. We took control of the game right there in the first quarter and never lost control of it.”
“They dissected us,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “You kind of felt they were going to come in and throw a punch, and we just didn’t respond.”
The Warriors now hold a 2-1 series lead over the Clippers heading into Game 4 on Sunday. That game, airing on ABC, is set to tipoff at 3:30pm ET.
