Really interesting thing also is that if the guys just slowed down a little and got CP the ball in some of the late game possessions where guys go too excited and turned it over, the team had a very good chance of winning the game. Let's not forget about FT shooting either, Clippers are like a 73% FT shooting team, so shooting 73% would be 24/34 which would be 3 more points.
LAC: 16 / 13.7% (Season: 12.8%)
OKC: 8 / 7.1% (Season: 14.1%)
LAC: 21/34 (61.8%)
OKC: 26/32 (81.2%)
Clippers aren't likely to turn it over 16 times consistently, and OKC isn't likely to only turn it over only 8 times again. In a 7 game series, the Clippers should win the turnover battle. Durant isn't likely to shoot so poorly over a series, maybe one or two games at most in a 5 game series he could shoot like that. Clippers were about -5 pts due to turnovers and FT's last night and that's neglecting the easy basket that came off turnovers for the Thunder. Just straight up if they had 2 more possessions and scored at least 1 pts/possession and then hit 3 more FT's.
So to be honest, this game was really not that bad. Paul and Griffin had their ups and downs, but we got:
from the teams best players, that's a good sign especially with the 3rd option scorer out
