Golden State Warriors vs. L.A. Clippers: How To Watch, Details, And FREE Live Stream
As the defending champions prepare for a game against the Los Angeles Clippers, the Warriors will likely be very shorthanded.
On Wednesday, the San Antonio Spurs announced that Kawhi Leonard and Paul George would be out against the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night.
This made the Spurs' win seem inevitable, but since Brooklyn entered the proceedings as well, it was still being determined to what extent both teams had in mind.
This 10 p.m. game at the Chase Center in Mission Bay, San Francisco, is part two of ESPN's doubleheader. fubo T.V. and Sling T.V. are running a 7-day free trial, while DirecTV is also streaming the game.
The Los Angeles Clippers will be missing sharpshooting guard Luke Kennard. Additionally, they will also forget the recoveries of Leonard and George.
With three days left until the Golden State Warriors meet the Clippers, you can expect to see a healthier squad on the floor. In their last regular season game, only Andre Iguodala (36 hours) is listed as 'limited.'
The Clippers have made strides thanks to 30 points from shooting guard Norman Powell. They have won six of their last eight games, and they're coming off a 121-114 home win against the Utah Jazz.
But they continue to struggle without Kawhi Leonard, who tore his ACL in the 2021 playoffs and missed the entire 2020-21 season, only returning for two games this past season.
Now just three games into his second return from that setback, he has suffered an ankle sprain and is out again tonight.
Although finding a scoring replacement has been difficult, the Los Angeles Clippers are still in contention for a high playoff seed.
Golden State started the season slowly but has won five of its last eight games. But the team lost 128-83 against New Orleans on Monday. The Warriors were outscored in a losing effort after halftime.
Even though the Warriors have lost some key players, they are still an incredible team. They rank sixth in points per game (116), as Steph Curry continues to run up the numbers, and they also enjoy a high FT% (80.8%).
Wiggins (18.4) and Thompson (17.3) add even more firepower, while Jordan Poole can occasionally step up.
