The Golden State Warriors’ struggles continued on Saturday after Paul George hit a game-winning three pointer in the dying seconds as the Los Angeles Clippers secured a 113-112 win.
The Warriors led comfortably for most of the game. However, the Clippers began to claw their rivals back in the fourth quarter before they stole the game in the final moments.
In the closing 30 seconds, the Clippers narrowed the gap to two points with a Kawhi Leonard layup before Stephen Curry missed a step-back jumper to put the game to bed.
Russell Westbrook collected the rebound and passed the ball to Paul George who dribbled down the court and shot a three-pointer over Klay Thompson to give the Clippers a one-point lead with 8.9 seconds left.
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr called a timeout to regroup, only for Draymond Green to miss the Warriors’ final attempt to win the game.

Steve Kerr recently said that the Warriors’ struggles nearly landed him in trouble with his wife
The Warriors are now 3-3 in their last six games following a six-game losing streak.
On Thursday, Kerr told KNBR how his team’s struggles nearly got him in trouble with his wife, Margot. Kerr shared how Margot told him to save his stress for the playoffs after Golden State lost 124-123 to the Sacramento Kings in similar fashion.
‘I’ll tell you what happened; I got home from Sacramento, I’m up for a while, I’m thinking about everything, I get into bed, and [I’m] tossing and turning,’ Kerr told KNBR.
‘It’s probably two o’clock in the morning, and Margot wakes up and goes, ‘Jesus, it’s only November. Would you just relax?’ And I’m like, ‘What are you talking about?’ And she goes, ‘All I can hear are these heavy sighs, tossing and turning, just go to sleep.’

Chris Paul (L) and Gary Payton II (R) are notable players missing from the Warriors due to injury
The Warriors’ adversity has been compounded by availability issues for key players, particularly Green who anchors their defense.
Green was suspended for five games after choking Minnesota Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert earlier this month. In his return against the Kings, Green picked up a technical foul which aided Sacramento’s comeback.
Golden State have also been missing key rotation player Gary Payton II due to a torn calf and point guard Christ Paul, who has been battling a lower leg nerve injury.
The Warriors will look to bounce back when they face the Portland Trailblazers on December 6.
