To say the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers don’t exactly like each other would be a pretty severe understatement. But just in case you needed reassurance, both teams made the notion known after the Clippers’ Thursday night victory.
After the game, Clippers point guard Chris Paul blatantly suggested that the two sides have no love lost for each other, though tempers were obviously heated prior as both DeAndre Jordan and Andrew Bogut had to be separated after a hard foul in the second quarter.
With Golden State trailing by thirteen points in the second quarter, big man Andrew Bogut wanted to make sure there were no easy baskets, raking his arm over the Clippers’ Jordan who wanted to go in for a dunk. Jordan didn’t appreciate the rough foul, which lead to shoving match between the two before the teams and referees could stop the potential fight.
Both the Warriors and the Clippers should battle for supremacy atop the Pacific Division this season, so this is a battle that is just beginning.
