Coming off of a gritty, emotional win over the Los Angeles Lakers Saturday night, which saw Klay Thompson go nuclear in the final frame of the 117-115 victory, the Golden State Warriors set their sights on the other team that resides in Los Angeles: the Clippers.

Golden State is 2-0 against the Clippers this season, including a 105-90 win for the Warriors in their latest matchup on Nov. 28.

Warriors guard Stephen Curry exploded in that game for a team-high 33 points on 12-of-22 shooting from the floor. Curry infamously was assessed a technical foul after exploding on a referee that night as well.

He would subsequently score 11 of his 22 in the final nine minutes of the game, finding his three-point range, hitting seven of the 13 triples he attempted in the game.

"That was as upset as I've seen him and that I have been in a long time,” Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said after the game. “When he knows he got fouled on a play like that and he doesn't get the call the competitor will come out in him and he will lose his mind a little bit.”

As of late, Curry has taken a back seat in scoring, letting players like Thompson take the reins.In fact, in Golden State’s last four games, Curry has been the team’s leading scorer once — 35 points in a 116-114 loss to the New York Knicks.

The good news for the Warriors, however, is that with the win over the Lakers, they snapped a two-game losing streak and maintained their spot as the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference.

The Clippers on the other hand, are in a battle with the Lakers for the No. 8 seed in the West. Without Kawhi Leonard (knee) and Paul George (elbow), Los Angeles will be slightly short-handed and will look to build on a win over the Dallas Mavericks, which snapped a three-game losing streak.

In addition to no Leonard and George, the Clippers found out Sunday they will be without guard Norman Powell, who suffered a foot fracture against the Mavericks.
