Players Reactions To Game 7

If you’re a Golden State Warriors fan, you’ve probably been in bed all day after a night of crying. If you think that you’re feeling bad, you must imagine how the Warriors feel. One may think that they’re feeling worse, but in reality, they are responding well to the situation.

They know that they played their hearts out and gave it their all, but in the end, the Los Angeles Clippers were executing better. A couple of plays threw the Warriors out of their momentum, and they struggled to keep up with LAC’s scoring pace in the final minute. A lot of them are worried about Mark Jackson’s job security, and they also talked a little about their performances.

I know Chris Paul isn’t a Warrior, but he said some pretty interesting things about the Donald Sterling troubles.

ESPN’s Recap said that this was the best first round matchup of the series, and that it definitely met everyone’s expectations with the physicality and all the other factors. These two teams are now OFFICIALLY rivals.

Someone had to lose, unfortunately, and Saturday it was the Warriors. Still, with four of the seven games decided by five points or fewer, the matchup definitely met, if not surpassed, everyone’s expectations as the best series of Round 1.
