For the first time all season, Kevin Durant was off. Stephen Curry couldn’t hit anything from deep. After scoring 60 points in three quarters Monday, Klay Thompson started Wednesday’s game 0-of-4. This had the makings of an upset, in theory.

Instead, the Golden State Warriors routed the Los Angeles Clippers 115-98 in another faceoff that failed to validate the billing of “rivalry.” It was another Warriors-Clippers game, another hyped drumroll leading to nothing, another crescendo squeezed into quiet. The Clippers are excellent, just not so much against the Steve Kerr-era Warriors, against whom they’ve gone 1-8.
