Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Ty Lue on facing the Warriors first: “This is a good learning experience for us … playing this team, the way they move the basketball the way they move bodies, no better team to play in the first game of the season.” – 12:53 AM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
If not for Eric Bledsoe in the first quarter, “I think we could have been down 30,” – 12:53 AM

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Ty Lue on Bledsoe’s contribution: “If it weren’t for him, I think we could’ve been down 30.” – 12:52 AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Ty Lue praising how his team got back in the game, says Curry will have those quarters where he goes off.
Lue adds that he felt team got good shots down the stretch, just missed them. And team lost track of Curry due to the movement. – 12:51 AM

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Warriors 115, Clippers 113 | Final | Ty Lue: “I’m proud of our team for the way they competed.” – 12:50 AM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Clippers fall to 0-1, losing 115-113 in Golden State. Their small lineups were critical in the comeback. PG with 29 points. – 12:45 AM

Nate Jones @JonesOnTheNBA
Warriors need to get Ben. They could win it all with him 🤷🏽‍♂️ – 12:43 AM

10-16 FG
And played great defense. pic.twitter.com/8IiSfswMXL12:43 AM

Carl Steward @stewardsfolly
Those two incredible shots by Curry. Not trash. – 12:42 AM

Ralph Lawler @Ohmeomy
Some opening night. Clippers come from 19 down to force a thriller in Golden St before losing 115-113. Both teams should have very good seasons. – 12:42 AM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Stephen Curry drags the Warriors to a victory many of his teammates seeming unwilling to take. 45 points, including the last 8 of the last 10, in a 115-113 win over the Clippers at Chase Center. – 12:42 AM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Biggest takeaway from GSW/LAC is the Clippers are still really good, especially with their small units. Bledsoe looks like he’ll help them – 12:41 AM

Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Warriors win it 115-113.
Steph finishes with 45 –25 of which came in 1st quarter
16/25 from the field, 8/13 from beyond the arc, 5/5 from the free throw line. 10 rebounds and an assist in 37 minutes. – 12:41 AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Zubac executes the missed free throw better than DeMarcus Cousins did in WCF … but Clippers couldn’t handle it for a clear look.
Golden State is 2-0, Clippers 0-1 after 115-113 decision here at Chase Center.
Curry finishes with 45 points after 25-point first quarter. – 12:40 AM

Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Warriors hold on for a 115-113 win over the Clippers. Steph Curry with 45 points. The Clippers with resiliency. The Warriors with a good supporting cast. What a game. – 12:40 AM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Steph Curry’s night: 25 first quarter points to stake the Warriors a huge lead, quiet couple quarters as the Clippers rolled back, two mega 3s and a pair of clutch free throws to seal it. Curry finishes with 45 points. Warriors are 2-0. – 12:40 AM

Kevin Pelton @kpelton
Let’s do this again in the spring with Klay and (hopefully) Kawhi healthy. – 12:40 AM

StatMuse @statmuse
Steph Curry tonight:
45 PTS
10 REB
8 3PT
It’s his first career 45/10 game. He’s also had 10 rebounds in back-to-back games. pic.twitter.com/pr8yAtlJh412:39 AM

Carl Steward @stewardsfolly
So good to have Iguodala back. – 12:37 AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
That Green layup may have iced this game. Clippers had to foul there with Green struggling at the line.
Curry steps up now following a belated George 3 to shoot two FTs with Warriors up 113-112, 4.7 left – 12:37 AM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Man, how is Wiggins not picking up PG 10 feet beyond the 3-point line up 4? Now Clips will have a chance to at least tie, although 4.7 left and no timeouts. – 12:36 AM

Chris Herring @Herring_NBA
How did Draymond not get a foul call there? – 12:36 AM

Danny Leroux @DannyLeroux
Potentially relevant: the Clippers have no timeouts left – 12:36 AM

Nate Jones @JonesOnTheNBA
Having Iguodala out there to finish games this year is a big help. Just makes the right play every time. – 12:36 AM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
I love Paul George’s game – 12:35 AM

Golden State Warriors PR @WarriorsPR
Stephen Curry has his 50th career 40-point game with 43 points to go with 10 rebounds. – 12:35 AM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Stephen Curry is trying to give the Warriors a victory they’ve spent much of the night trying to donate to the Clippers.
His eighth 3-ball gives Warriors 111-109 lead, 56.8 seconds left. LA timeout.
Curry with 43 points. – 12:34 AM

Sam Vecenie @Sam_Vecenie
Just so incredibly grateful to watch Stephen Curry play basketball. – 12:34 AM

The Ringer @ringernba
There isn’t a tweet we could craft that could adequately describe what Steph Curry is doing tonight. – 12:33 AM

Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
Curry just hit two big threes and gave the Warriors a two-point lead. 111-109 with 56.8 left in the fourth.
#DubNation12:33 AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Another 3 from Steph following a missed 3 from Bledsoe … Golden State takes 111-109 lead, and Lue uses his final timeout with 56.8 seconds left.
A memorable season opener with the result still up in the air. – 12:33 AM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Hot take here: I really like watching Steph Curry play basketball. – 12:33 AM

Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Steph Curry casually tossed shots from 31 feet and 26 feet, and they went in. Warriors have a 111-109 lead over the Clippers with 56.8 seconds left. – 12:33 AM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Imagine having to guard against these last 2 ridiculous Curry shots in the last 2 minutes of a close game. – 12:33 AM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Steph advanced the ball early to Damion Lee, who knew all along what Curry was doing – 12:32 AM

Danny Leroux @DannyLeroux
Stephen Curry, ladies and gentlemen – 12:32 AM

Eric Bledsoe, roll man is killing Golden State. Taking advantage of Curry doubling PG in PnR. – 12:31 AM

Casual 31-foot go-ahead 3 from Curry
Bledsoe’s TENTH field goal.

Danny Leroux @DannyLeroux
#TNTAlert for Clippers/Warriors – 12:30 AM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Draymond about to take his 8th and 9th free throws. The most in the game. It’s because he’s been aggressive
Now if he can just make more than 2 of them – 12:30 AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
George drives, loses ball, recovers, but Clippers have to burn a timeout to keep him from getting tied up.
Tied at 104. Warriors have two timeouts left, Clippers have one with 3:16 left to play. – 12:26 AM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Curry, Draymond, and Iguodala closing it out like old times. Wiggins and DLee in the Barnes/Klay spots though. – 12:26 AM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
That was a big 3 by Reggie Jackson – 12:25 AM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Bledsoe has been a huge force in transition tonight. Either scoring or penetrating to set up shooters. – 12:24 AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Reggie Jackson 3 ends 12 straight missed shots and 12-0 Warriors run
Activate NBA-standard clutch time… – 12:24 AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Warriors in bonus for last 5:15 – 12:23 AM

Nicolas Batum @nicolas88batum
Watching your team play on your couch when they can’t hear you is the worst man 😓 – 12:22 AM

Brad Botkin @bradbotkincbs
When the Warriors get to fumbling the ball all over the court it is eerily reminiscent of a fraternity tournament I played at Chico State one time in which vodka and orange juice was in the gatorade bucket – 12:22 AM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Andre Iguodala to the locker room during the timeout after a hard fall. – 12:21 AM

Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
Andre Iguodala is experiencing some discomfort after that awkward fall. He went to the locker room during the timeout. – 12:20 AM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Jordan Poole now 4-of-14 FG with seven turnovers, just missed a pair of wild layups in traffic and started to yell at the refs for the no-calls after the whistle. Draymond Green tells him to “calm down.” He just threw a towel in the huddle in frustration. – 12:20 AM

Marc J. Spears @MarcJSpears
Iguodala slipped on the floor, slowly got up and walked to bench gingerly during the timeout. Definitely a slippery court tonight at Chase Center like back in high school. Where is the janitor with the big broom? pic.twitter.com/eA8zVBVyRy12:20 AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Iguodala limping, and so is Clippers offense. 9-0 Warriors run, as Clippers have missed 10 shots in a row. Golden State leads 99-98 with 5:53 left and Clippers on a 4:43 scoring drought – 12:20 AM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Rough luck for Clips last couple of mins. Getting way better shots than the Warriors but open 3s not going in. Only 5 points in the first 6 mins of the quarter as GSW retakes the lead on a 7-0 walk. – 12:19 AM

Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Iguodala slid on a wet spot and is on the bench getting checked out. Looks like he fell on his back/hip. – 12:19 AM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Down goes Andre Iguodala. Slips. Gets up limping. At least the fourth time someone has slipped on the floor tonight. – 12:19 AM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Iguodala looks hurt. He’s laboring up the court holding his left hip area. – 12:18 AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Mann is in with the starters. I wonder if that would be the case even if Batum was available – 12:15 AM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Clippers do a great job of getting their iso players in isolation. And they’ve got some top notch iso players – 12:14 AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Clippers took a 98-90 lead, but have gone nearly three minutes without scoring. We’re about to find out the balance between rest and optimal conditioning.
Lue has already started to put his closers back in with a 94-90 lead. 7:49 left in the fourth quarter. – 12:13 AM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
The Clippers have taken four more threes than the Warriors with 7:49 left in the game – 12:13 AM

Kerith Burke @KerithBurke
35 points for Steph
17 for Wiggins
No one else with more than seven – 12:11 AM

Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Draymond is back on the bench after getting checked out in locker room. He took a hard fall on his hand early in the 3rd. – 12:08 AM

Kerith Burke @KerithBurke
Draymond’s back by the bench, by the way – 12:07 AM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
This second unit has, so far, gotten isolations from JTA and Damion Lee – 12:07 AM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Clippers switching causing all kinds of problems for Golden State’s 2nd unit. Their defense has been solid since that first quarter explosion. – 12:06 AM

Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Stephen Curry sitting to open the 4th Q. Interesting to see if Warriors can ensure Clippers don’t break away. They have a 96-90 lead with just over 11 minutes left. – 12:06 AM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Here is the fall where Draymond Green appears to hurt his right thumb/wrist. Still in the locker room getting it checked out after playing most of the third quarter with it. pic.twitter.com/QAzrp8VMiU12:05 AM

Clippers 93, Warriors 90 | End 3 | PG 26, Bledsoe 20. Curry 35, Wiggins 17. – 12:03 AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Clippers take a 93-90 lead into the fourth quarter. Yes, that is the largest lead of the game for LAC, and the end of a 22-point turnaround since mid-2nd quarter.
Something to watch: George, Bledsoe, Jackson have attempted 45 field goals, only 3 free throws (all by Bledsoe). – 12:03 AM

Brad Botkin @bradbotkincbs
The Warriors take turning the ball over to circus levels – 12:03 AM

17 Warriors turnovers at the end of the third quarter. Seven for the Clips. – 12:03 AM

GSW outscored 51-29 over last 1.5 quarters – 12:03 AM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Third quarter:
Clippers 93, Warriors 90
Warriors have 17 turnovers. Terance Mann played his best basketball of the night in that quarter; his defense a major factor in making Steph appear human again. – 12:02 AM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Jordan Poole’s been quiet tonight, 2/8 shooting with a couple deep airballs, but he’s needed to open this fourth quarter. Clippers up three, Steph Curry heading to the bench. – 12:02 AM

Ralph Lawler @Ohmeomy
Loving the Dodgers homes run rampage to send the NLCS back to ATL. Not loving the start of the Clipper game as Curry went for 25 in 1st Q for Golden State – 12:02 AM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Clippers now with 8 more shots than the Warriors thanks to Golden State’s 17 turnovers – 12:01 AM

Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
Draymond Green is 1-for-7 from the free-throw line tonight against the Clippers. – 11:59 PM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Draymond comes out, heads straight to the locker room. Appears to have a wrist/hand issue. Has missed 6 of 7 free throws. – 11:59 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Draymond Green has missed six of his seven free throws tonight. Fell hard on his right thumb/wrist earlier and had been flexing it. Just left the game and went to the locker room with Rick Celebrini to get it checked, it seems. – 11:58 PM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Draymond is 1-for-7 from FT line – 11:57 PM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Mann’s face guarding of Curry has been effective since the big fourth quarter – 11:56 PM

Kennard and Winslow make Clippers small again – 11:54 PM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Curry and Poole combined 11 turnovers (Curry 6)
The Clippers 6 total turnovers – 11:54 PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Warriors turnovers are the biggest reason this is close. Turned it over on 20% of their possessions. Curry 6 TOs and Poole 5. – 11:53 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
After chaotic game of runs in first half, these two teams are playing to a somewhat slower boil in the third quarter. Curry up to 33 points, Golden State up 86-82 with 4:08 left in the period – 11:53 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
14 turnovers by Golden State have turned into 18 points for the Clippers. Clips have turned it over just six times for six points. – 11:52 PM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Thru 2.5 quarters, Jordan Poole is having one of those ‘learning experience’ games. – 11:52 PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
It doesn’t look like Zubac is doing a ton out there, but the Warriors are settling for a ton of floaters when he’s in. – 11:52 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Took 2.5 quarters, but Jackson has his first field goal, a tough one while being defended by Poole. A critical one too after Curry made a 3 following Green’s first basket of the game. – 11:49 PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Terance Mann has completely changed this game with his defense on Steph and Poole. – 11:46 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Eric Bledsoe got to the rim and then threw a hell of a no-look bounce pass to the corner for a three-pointer. He’s been as advertised tonight with getting pressure on the rim. – 11:46 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Clippers come out of their timeout with 9:07 left in the third quarter with a Mann-Bledsoe-Zubac-PG-Reggie lineup. Marcus Morris sitting on the bench’s far end after playing the quarter’s first 47 seconds. – 11:45 PM

Chris Biderman @TheWarriorsWire
After Steph Curry dropped 25 points on a perfect 9-of-9 shooting on the Clippers in the first quarter, LeBron James, Damian Lillard, Ja Morant and more NBA stars chimed in on Twitter with reactions… warriorswire.usatoday.com/lists/lebron-j…11:44 PM

Kerith Burke @KerithBurke
Steve Kerr checked with Draymond during the time out. Dray is staying in. – 11:43 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Rough start for Reggie Jackson. He’s out there despite a nasty looking slip in first half. Hasn’t scratched yet (0 points, 0/6 FGs), but tried to finish a dunk, so there’s that.
Golden State up 73-72 with 9:07 left in third quarter – 11:42 PM

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
That was a big board by Bledsoe, nice find and finish by Zu and Mann — who know each other well after a couple years together. – 11:41 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Terance Mann is already in for Marcus Morris Sr. after Lue’s timeout. – 11:37 PM

Kerith Burke @KerithBurke
Draymond was grimacing and holding his right wrist in pain. before he took the free throws. Dr. Rick Celebrini checks with Dray during the timeout. – 11:37 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Zu is indeed out there to start second half
And Ty Lue burns a timeout 47 seconds into the half after Warriors score a second-chance FG off of missed Draymond Green FT (a break because Curry missed an open 3) and Wiggins pick-sixes PG – 11:36 PM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Draymond holding his R hand, in visible pain. Staying in for now. – 11:34 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Draymond is holding what appears to be his right wrist. – 11:34 PM

Rob Perez @WorldWideWob
Terance Mann just cures everything. Basketball penicillin. Did all the scoring when PG/Kawhi were out last year. Kept Luka on this planet during Mavs series. Exposed Rudy’s footspeed. Comes in tonight and cuffs Steph while hes single-handedly raising earth’s sea level. i see you. – 11:31 PM

Bill Herenda @billherenda
#Clippers bounce in Q2 to lead by 1 at 1/2 — Paul George 16 pts & Eric Bledsoe 11 pts in Q2— #Warriors last year were bottom 5 in turnovers & opponent points off turnovers Kerr may touch on that at 1/2 time #DubNation #WarriorsGround #ClipperNation #NBA pic.twitter.com/5F6mFx7mz611:24 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
It’s wild that Warriors are down at half after shooting 61.5 percent from the field.
Will be interesting to see if Ty starts Zu in second half.
You know who was good in that first half by the way? Amir Coffey… he might play over Winslow in second half too. – 11:24 PM

Jeff Eisenband @JeffEisenband
Chris Taylor playing like Babe Ruth, Trae beat Luka, Stephen Curry going wild, D’ernest Johnson going off, a million NHL games on, Hideki Matsuyama taking the lead in Japan. Tonight is nuts. – 11:22 PM

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
“Basketball is a game of runs.” Maybe you’ve heard?
Clippers 67, GSW 66 | Half
LAC trailed by 19 — 61-42 — with 5:33 to go in the second quarter. They took a 67-66 lead with 20.6 ticks till halftime. – 11:22 PM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Iguodala +14
Porter Jr. +14
The other end of the spectrum …
Wiggins -15
Draymond -15 – 11:20 PM

Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Clippers once again showing fight in that first half and coming back when it starts to look bleak. PG got hot late in second quarter and has 22 points at the half. Eric Bledsoe has 15 points so far in his Clipper return. – 11:18 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
It’s halftime, in case tweets need to get deleted…
Clippers end last 5:33 of second quarter on 25-5 run to erase 19-point Warriors lead and take 67-66 lead into the break.
Paul George and Eric Bledsoe outscored Golden State 27-22 in second quarter. – 11:17 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
HALFTIME: Clippers 67, Warriors 66
George: 22 points
Bledsoe: 15
Zubac: 10
55% FG, 37% on 3s, 11-14 on FTs
Curry has 28 (3 in the second quarter)
Dubs shooting 61.5%/55.6% – 11:17 PM

Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
No matter what happens the rest of the year — that will end up being one of the worst quarters of the season from the Warriors. A 19 point lead is all gone. Clippers crawl all the way back in 2nd.
A 12 minute meltdown after Steph dominated 1st. – 11:16 PM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
First quarter: Warriors 44-27
Second quarter: Clippers 40-22 – 11:16 PM

Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Clippers showing a lot of resiliency. They have a 67-66 half-time lead over the Warriors after outscoring them in the second quarter, 40-23 – 11:16 PM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Warriors built a 19-pt lead and gave it back with sloppy defense and bad possessions. Go into halftime trailing Clippers 67-66, – 11:16 PM

Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Somehow, after all of that… the Warriors are trailing by one at the half. – 11:15 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
This was a protest jumper from Draymond Green after he begged for movement the whole possession and didn’t get it. Warriors’ offense has been out of whack in this second quarter. pic.twitter.com/RJtgLtPHWI11:15 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Terance Mann’s first bucket is what you’d expect. Him laying up a like-sized individual under the basket like he’s Barkley.
After Juan Toscano-Anderson fouled Amir Coffey on a 3, Clippers have taken a 67-66 lead with 20.6 seconds left in first half. – 11:15 PM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Clippers can go into the half with the lead – 11:14 PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Just a brutal second quarter for Curry after 25 in the first. A ton of awful turnovers. Meanwhile, the Clippers have gone with Paul George at center now. – 11:14 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
This is a 16-3 Clippers run to pull within 66-64, and now Amir Coffey is stepping to the free-throw line for 3 shots. – 11:14 PM

David Morrow @_DavidMorrow
Paul George singlehandedly makes this Clippers team pretty damn fun. – 11:13 PM

Sam Vecenie @Sam_Vecenie
Terance Mann is fighting his ass off on defense right now. Flying around all over the place. – 11:12 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
And the Warriors lead is down to 2
Paul George has 22 points – 11:12 PM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
George has 22 on 9 of 12 … Warriors’ once 19-point lead down to 2 – 11:12 PM

Rob Perez @WorldWideWob
only 2 points for Steph since the Clippers put Mini Cooper Kawhi on him. – 11:12 PM

Brad Botkin @bradbotkincbs
Paul George is so good – 11:11 PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Starting to see now where Bjelica is going to be an issue defensively against teams that can space him out. Kerr goes to JTA, see if GSW goes to more of a switching scheme now. – 11:11 PM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Warriors with 3 points over the last 3 minutes – 11:10 PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
The Clippers with Marcus Morris at center are extremely difficult to guard. – 11:09 PM

Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Paul George T’d up after complaining about a no call after driving to the basket. PG then pushed his head to illustrate the contact he argued he drew on his way to the rim. – 11:08 PM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Clippers shooting 53.8 percent from the field, even with 4 of 13 from 3. – 11:07 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Eric Bledsoe with 15 points on 7-9 shooting and Paul George has 14 points on 6-10 shooting. They’ve cut GSW’s 19-point lead to nine. – 11:07 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Eric Bledsoe went the whole preseason without a made 3. Only non-center to do that on Clippers.
He just made one to give him 15 first half points and cut Golden State lead to 63-54. – 11:06 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Moses Moody has thrown two absolute dimes when it looked like he was losing control near the paint. – 11:05 PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Moses Moody’s decision-making on drives has impressed early on in his career. Has two assists for rim buckets tonight. – 11:05 PM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Warriors are 26-for-30 from the field (10-17 from 3) with 61 points and just under 5 minutes left in the half. Their eFG% is 93.3 – 11:04 PM

Stephen Curry finally misses a shot after making 10 straight field goals. He has a game-high 27 points with 4:45 left in the second quarter. – 11:04 PM

Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Steph missed. He’s 10-for-11.
Warriors are still 23-for-30 from the field — shooting 76.7 percent. – 11:02 PM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Curry first miss: Deep 3. Back to human status – 11:01 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU

(Golden State still up 61-46 with 4:45 left in first half) – 11:01 PM

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
lol — as pointed out on the broadcast: two in double figures for both teams.
LAC: Zu and Bledsoe both have 10.
GSW: Wiggins and Steph — with 11 and TWENTY-SEVEN. – 11:00 PM

Clippers run a zone. Poole never even looked to the right side of the floor. He passed it back and forth with JTA 3 times. The defender still wasn’t close enough to contest – 10:55 PM

Clippers had nine days off and barely outscored Stephen Curry 27-25 in that first quarter.
Bad news for Clips is that Curry had some help and Golden State leads 44-27. Nine 3s for Warriors (5 from Steph), 13 fast break points. – 10:44 PM

25 first quarter points for Stephen Curry. At the end of the 40+ point period he has to deliberately motion to the Chase Center crowd, encouraging them to get fired up. He Wouldn’t have had to do that in Oakland – 10:43 PM

Yeah, so Steph already has more buckets in 10 minutes than he had in Los Angeles Tuesday night.
Up to 18 points on 7/7 FGs, 4/4 3s, and Ty Lue has to burn another timeout. Curry and Wiggins are up 29-25 on Clippers (Warriors have 7 points elsewhere as well) – 10:35 PM

Marcus Morris going without a headband after rocking with one most of last season. Just had to point that out.

The ball is moving again early for the Warriors. 5 assists already, Wiggins has three treys. Crowd seems pumped up — but it’s worth noting that there are a lot of empty seats in Chase. Especially considering the regular pomp and circumstance surrounding opening night. – 10:19 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Warriors and Clippers traded 3s for 2s to begin this game. After George got a midranger to go, Curry back cut Bledsoe for a layup.
That’s where we are now at the first timeout of the game, with Golden State up 14-10, 8:09 left in opening quarter – 10:19 PM
