Curry is averaging roughly about 27.9 points game for the Warriors as he is definitely up in conversion this year for the MVP candidate. Thompson is averaging around 20.7 points per game. With Curry sidelined for who knows how long we can expect veteran Shaun Livingston to fill the void. Livingston won’t give a spark of points like Curry as he is averaging roughly around 5.3 points, but definitely will give a defensive force. Thompson will most likely be replaced on the starting lineup by Andre Iguodala. Iguodala is known his ball handling skills and scoring skills he will definitely be a key factor in tonight’s game against the Clippers. With the loss of Griffin on the court the Clippers hope to steal a win from the Warriors with out Curry or Thompson on the floor but will have to outscore Kevin Durant and limit on shots if they want any shot of winning the game today.
