In this screengrab from the end of last night’s game, a young fan seeks solace in her mother (presumably), who needed some consoling herself. Watch enough sports, and you’re bound to encounter a few daggers. There wasn’t even anything especially gut-punching for the Warriors last night so much as the relentless onslaught from the Clippers in the paint; taken as a whole, though, this must have been excruciating from Golden State fans’ perspective.
I’m not gonna throw shade here or mock their pain — I’m just thankful that, to my knowledge, television cameras have never panned to my immediate reaction in the wake of a devastating loss. Sports are worth it in the long run — I think/hope, at least — but some episodes can be quite cruel.
