Warriors lose to Clippers in Game 7, out in first round of playoffs
Stephen Curry had 33 points and nine assists, but Golden State blew a lead with 2:10 left in Game 7. Draymond Green scored 24 points for the Warriors, who lost their first Game 7 since 1977 and failed to advance in consecutive postseasons for the first time since that same year.
"We fought so hard this whole series, this whole season," Curry said. "It stings. It's disappointing for sure."
An exhausting series ended with one last well-played game between the California powers who traded the lead throughout the second half. Los Angeles couldn't seize control of the first home Game 7 in franchise history until the final minutes — and the Clippers did it in fitting Lob City style.
