Young Clippers Try To Mature Against Warriors

Will a different set of referees call the game as tightly for both sides as it was in Game 1? That’s when Blake Griffin fouled out in 19 minutes, Paul had five, Matt Barnes four and DeAndre Jordan three. For the Warriors, Andre Iguodala fouled out, while David Lee, Jermaine O’Neal and Klay Thompson had four apiece. “I really didn’t anticipate the game to be called like that both ways,” Griffin said. “The next game could be extremely physical. I just need to do a better job reading that situation. The first couple fouls you can kind of see how the referees are calling the game.”

The Spurs held Dallas to one field goal in the final seven minutes to rally for a 90-85 win Sunday in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series.
