The NBA Playoffs got kicked off on Saturday afternoon, and one of the opening series in the Western Conference got underway early between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Golden State Warriors.
With the young talent on both of these rosters, this is undoubtedly one of the more anticipated series of the entire first round, and the first quarter did not disappoint in terms of excitement, thanks to the efforts of Jamal Crawford.
With the clock running down in the opening quarter and his Clippers team already up by two, watch here as Crawford launches this halfcourt shot and bank it in to extend that lead.
This is one of the series in the playoffs this season that could go seven games, and that’s because both of these squads are able to make all the plays necessary to win.
So far through the first quarter and a little bit of the second, it’s the Clippers that are in control, although only by a few points for now as they continue to play on in Game 1.
