Draymond Green said on the radio Tuesday that he's upset about all the contact Stephen Curry took against the Clippers in Game 2 on Monday.

"It pissed me off, and we'll remember that," Green said on KNBR radio. Curry and the Warriors were dominated in Game 2 and the series is now tied 1-1, with Game 3 set for Thursday at Golden State. These two teams didn't like each other before the series started, and tempers could flare before it's over.
Jermaine O'Neal received a double technical with Doc Rivers after their verbal altercation during Monday's loss to the Clippers.
The verbal sparring happened during the second quarter of the Clippers' Game 2 blowout of the Warriors on Monday and was essentially limited to O'Neal and Rivers jawing at each other before receiving matching technical fouls. "It's very intense right now," O'Neal said. "Everyone wants to win. Everybody is looking for that blood. This league is about trying to smell what the weakness is. I don't care if it's the scorekeeper - there are going to be scenarios where you are trying to find an edge and keep yourself going." There is no love lost between this two teams, but let's hope O'Neal limits his frustrations to the court for the scorekeeper's sake.
Stephen Curry came out flat against the Clippers during Game 2's embarrassing 138-98 loss on Monday, shooting 9-of-17 from the field for 24 points with one board, eight assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.
The Warriors committed 33 fouls, had 26 turnovers and shot 4-of-19 from deep, so those three issues along pretty much knocked them out for the night. Curry was the only player on his team with more than 11 points while he and Draymond Green were the only two players over 50 percent shooting of the 12 players in action tonight. The good news is they're still tied 1-1 with the series heading to ORACLE Arena on Thursday, but getting so thoroughly outplayed could spell trouble.
