The Golden State Warriors lost yet another game to the LA Clippers tonight. Succumbing to defeat in a 121-113, Stephen Curry was visibly frustrated. And rightfully so. When each person on the team has a role to play, and if they don’t, the result is chaos. With Draymond Green suspended indefinitely, the Dubs were down a key player.

The Warriors have faced the Clippers for a total of 235 regular season games. While the Dubs hold the lead with 138 wins, the same can’t be said of their combined losses in Los Angeles.

What’s even more bitter is that this loss comes on the LA soil. As pointed out by Anthony Slater, tonight’s loss marks the 11th straight loss to the Lakers/Clippers. Apparently, Curry runs out of luck in the Staples Center (currently known as Crypto.com Arena).

Going back to 2016, the greatest three-point shooter struggled to land at least one 3-point shot. Fast forward to five years hence, and a road opener against the Lakers saw him with just 5-for-21 from the floor. And yes, it was at Staples.

A hardcore Warriors fan painstakingly listed just how bad the curse was in 2021.

Clearly, it has come back to haunt him. Completely clueless as to what happens when playing in Los Angeles, Chef Curry had invited everyone to try their hand at figuring out the truth. “No idea. If you have any ideas, please let me know, because I still ain’t figured it out,” he said.

One man’s loss is another’s gain. Or in LA’s case, the team’s gain. While the Dubs are struggling with curses and volatile teammates, the Clippers have regrouped and rerouted their talents to benefit the team. Tonight was no exception to their recent impressive performances.

James Harden has been a pleasant surprise for the team. Knocking down another milestone, the “Beard” reached his 25,000th point. On the way, the Clippers got 28 points, 15 assists, and seven rebounds. In the absence of veteran guard Paul George, Norman Powell posted 21 points.

The Warriors are hosting the Brooklyn Nets next. The Nets have been nothing short of spectacular against the Big 3 of the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday. So it will be interesting to see how they match up against the shorthanded Warriors.

One take at a time

“Not only is there more to life than basketball, there’s a lot more to basketball than basketball” - Jackson had a simple philosophy when he was coaching the Lakers. He wanted everyone to succeed and grow in the service of something bigger than themselves. This is what struck me the most.
