In what may be the NBA’s biggest upset of the season thus far, the Los Angeles Clippers finally overcame their nemesis, the Golden State Warriors, in dominant fashion Wednesday night in Oakland with a 125-106 road victory.
They were led by their new star having the greatest season of his NBA career, Lou Williams.
Williams shot 16-for-27 from the field, including eight three-pointers and scored an NBA high 27 points in the 2nd quarter.
He has been on fire as of late, averaging 33.2 points and 6.0 assists per game in January and 25.2 points and 5.8 assists per game in December, the Clippers have won eight of their last 11 games behind Williams’s stellar play.
The Warriors were without Steph Curry and Klay Thompson for the night, but beating the defending champs on their home court handily with their best player on the floor is a pretty incredible accomplishment though.
Lou is making a late push for an All-star spot, pretty crazy for a career bench scorer, and is on the early track for Western Conference Player of the Month for January.
He is averaging 22.9 points, 4.9 assists and 2.9 rebounds per game on the season while shooting 45% from the field and 41% from downtown.
