A 45-point outing by Kevin Durant went for naught in Game Five on Wednesday, as the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors dropped a second game to the eighth-seeded Los Angeles Clippers in their first-round, NBA West playoff series. The loss meant that the Warriors had lost two first-round playoff games for the first time since 2014, when they were actually eliminated in seven games by the same Los Angeles Clippers franchise, per Basketball Reference, also the last year that Golden State failed to advance all the way to the NBA Finals.
Now, the Clippers will try to force a Game Seven again, and get a chance to pull off what would easily be the biggest playoff upset in several years at least — if they can defend their home court in a Game Six that will live stream from the Staples Center.
