Five things to take from Clippers’ 115-112 loss to Golden State

Jeff Green did not have a good debut for the Clippers. He scored five points on just 2 of 7 shooting. He had two rebounds, one assist and three turnovers in just under 20 minutes. But once he’s acclimated, expect him to take one of the starting forward spots currently held by Paul Pierce and Luc Mbah a Moute. Once Blake Griffin returns, expect both Pierce and Mbah a Moute to be coming off the bench.

– Speaking of Pierce and Mbah a Moute, they didn’t bring much to this game. Mbah a Moute played just under 13 minutes and had no points on one shot attempt, zero rebounds and one turnover. Pierce scored two points on 1 of 7 shooting in just under 16 minutes. Pierce had no rebounds, two assists, one turnover and four personal fouls.

– Kudos to the reserves for bringing the Clippers back from a 16-point deficit with 2:27 to play. Doc Rivers admitted the team had a timeout it could have used after the steal that led to C.J. Wilcox’s long-distance shot at the buzzer that would have tied the game had it gone in. But he said it all happened so quick and, besides, Rivers correctly noted, that’s not why they lost the game. They were out-played by a great team for most of it. That’s why they lost.

– The biggest Clippers killer in this one was not Steph Curry, but his Splash Brothers compadre Klay Thompson. Thompson scored a game-high 32 points on 11 of 22 shooting – 4 of 9 from distance – made all six of his free throws, pulled down seven rebounds, doleld out three assists and made three steals. The cherry on top – he had zero turnovers in nearly 40 minutes.

Chris Paul left the game with 4:47 to play with a thigh bruise. Afterward, he said, “I’ll be all right. I’ll definitely be ready by Monday.” Paul had 24 points, seven rebounds, six assists, a steal and just one turnover in nearly 35 minutes of this one.

Wilcox, 24, appeared in 21 games in 2014-15, averaging 2.0 points in 4.8 minutes. He averaged 14.0 points in the 2015 Orlando Pro Summer League. Even so, he’s going to find it difficult to get quality minutes on this team’s deep roster.
