The largest comeback in NBA playoff history was 29 points. The Golden State Warriors just lost a game in which they were up by 31 points. Golden State was ahead 94-63 with 7:41 left in the third quarter. They were then outscored 72-37 the rest of the game.

The Clippers took at 133-131 lead with 15 seconds left on a Landry Shamet three-pointer. Stephen Curry then missed a three-pointer, leading to two Montrezl Harrell FT’s making it a 135-131 lead with 5 seconds left.

It gets worse.

After diving for a ball midway through the first quarter, DeMarcus Cousins limped his way to the locker room. And there is a fear that it is serious:

Stephen Curry led the Warriors in scoring, with 29 points in 34 minutes of action. Kevin Durant scored 21 points before being fouled out late in the fourth quarter. Patrick Beverley, KD's nemesis from Game 1, also fouled out of Monday night's game.
