Whicker: Warriors remind Clippers they can beat them with defense too

LOS ANGELES — Mark Jackson was at Staples Center on Sunday. He was Golden State’s coach five years ago, when Donald T. Sterling finally fell like a despot’s statue, and the Clippers fought through a seven-game Western Conference first-round win. There was a lot of talk about that anniversary before this Game 4, with Clippers coach Doc Rivers recalling a shouting match with a Sterling associate that kept him from reaching the floor until the minute before tipoff. Both Rivers and Warriors coach St...

Klay Thompson jumped into the ocean to 'get right' before Game 4

GM Michael Winger declined T’wolves interview, says he can’t imagine leaving Clippers

LOS ANGELES — Despite the Game 4 defeat, the youthful energy on display in the Clippers’ first-round playoff series on Sunday afternoon was something of a positive omen for the organization. Not, perhaps, for the immediate future – the Clippers trail 3-1 in the best-of-seven series and face elimination against the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors in Game 5 on Wednesday night in Oakland. But after that, in years to come. Clippers general manager Michael Winger said he appreciates...

As Klay Thompson thrives for Golden State ahead of free agency, his father is a vocal, yet hands-off supporter

LOS ANGELES — It’s not that Mychal Thompson doesn’t have a seat. It’s just hard to stay in it. When he’s attending one of his son’s games, the 64-year-old tends to wander up into the concourse, by the concessions. He’s been through this a lot: Klay Thompson has played in 105 playoff games now, one more than Mychal ever played in, and he’s got one more championship ring, too. Still, something about the experience frays at Mychal’s nerves. “I give him his space,” he said. “Let him focus in. I don’...

Danilo Gallinari expects better of himself, Clippers in Game 4 vs. Warriors

PLAYA VISTA — Doc Rivers isn’t worried about Danilo Gallinari. Neither is Danilo Gallinari. The only hint of concern came from the Golden State camp, where Warriors guard Klay Thompson told reporters at Staples Center that Gallinari is “capable of getting hot.” “You’ve just got to take away his space,” Thompson said. “He’s a great shooter and a great shooter wants to have some space, so we try to close that gap between him.” Gallinari went 2 for 13 from the field, 0 for 8 from 3-point range, and...

Steve Kerr pushes for Warriors to re-sign Kevon Looney to long-term deal

Steve Kerr doesn't often publicly discuss personnel matters faced by the Warriors. "I was terrified all last year, after we denied the option, that we were going to lose him," Kerr said. This does not imply that Kerr has no desire to see Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson remain Warriors beyond this season, as well.

Clippers praise rookies Landry Shamet, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander for their poise

LOS ANGELES — One hundred-to-one odds that if you asked anyone in the Clippers organization about starting guards Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Landry Shamet in the past few weeks, their answer would have included the word “poise.” It’s a fitting description for the pair, whose pass and shot plunged the dagger into the Golden State Warriors’ sweep aspirations as the Clippers completed their historic playoff comeback victory on Monday in Oakland. “No matter how big the moment is, it’s the poise of ...

Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson had painfully awkward reactions to question about leaving Warriors

Five Warriors — Stephen Curry, Durant, Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston and Thompson — sat down for an interview with the program.

How Klay Thompson's early season slump could save Warriors $30 million

The Warriors are going to have to open up their checkbook this offseason if they want to keep the band together. With Kevin Durant expected to opt out of his contract and become a free agent and Klay Thompson also set to hit the free-agent market, keeping the NBA's juggernaut together will cost a pretty penny, one the ownership group has said it has no problem paying. While Durant and Thompson are both likely to command the max contract, an early-season slump by Thompson could end up saving...
