Curry scores 28 in Warriors win over Clippers
GOLDEN STATE 106, LA CLIPPERS 99

By MICHAEL WAGAMAN
Associated Press

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Jarrett Jack had 18 points and 10
assists, Stephen Curry made four 3-pointers in the fourth
quarter and Golden State rallied from seven points down in the
final 11 minutes to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 106-99 on
Monday.



Curry finished with 28 points, Klay Thompson added 18 and David
Lee had 12 points and 11 rebounds for the Warriors, who have
beaten the Pacific Division-leading Clippers three out of the
four games between the two teams this season.



There were five lead changes in the fourth quarter, but Los
Angeles managed only two baskets over the final 3:40 while
Golden State closed on a 14-4 run.



Blake Griffin had 26 points and 13 rebounds for the Clippers.
Jamal Crawford added 24 points off the bench.



Curry stayed mostly silent for three quarters in his second game
back from an ankle injury but gave the Warriors a much-needed
spark in the fourth after the Clippers had taken an 82-75 lead.



He scored 16 points, including three 3s in a span of 2:13, fired
a bounce pass from midcourt to Jack for a fast-break layup that
capped a 10-2 run and made four free throws over the final 23.4
seconds to seal the win in what has quickly become a heated
rivalry between these two West Coast teams.



Things got chippy just before halftime when the Clippers'
DeAndre Jordan was called for a technical foul after shoving Lee
into the lap of a courtside fan after getting fouled by Lee. The
two men were quickly separated and Thompson made the free throw
for Golden State.



Los Angeles regained its composure long enough to put together a
12-0 run to end the third quarter and was comfortably up in the
fourth before Curry rallied the Warriors to end the Clippers'
four-game winning streak.



Curry finished 9 of 14 from the floor and had six 3s.



Golden State (25-15) has won back-to-back games for the first
time since the end of December and still trail Los Angeles by
six games in the Pacific. The Clippers (32-10) lost for just the
second time in nine games.



The flurry at the end was in stark contrast to earlier in the
game when neither team could establish much control.



Griffin's thunderous dunk from just outside the lane gave the
Clippers an early lead and Jamal Crawford later scored eight
consecutive points to make it 33-29. Draymond Green's jumper and
two free throws from Jarrett Jack with 0.4 seconds left tied the
score.



The Warriors scored 10 straight points to open the second and
were up 52-42 on Curry's fadeaway jumper with 3:10 remaining
before the Clippers put together their best run of the half.
Griffin scored on a reverse layup and had two free throws,
Butler made a 3-pointer and Paul added two free throws to help
pull Los Angeles within 53-52 at the break.



Crawford, the former Warrior, got Los Angeles going briefly in
the third.



After Lee's layup put Golden State up 71-65, Crawford made two
3-pointers and banked a 5-footer off the glass as part of a 15-2
run to close the period.



Crawford finished 9 of 18 from the floor and set a season high
for 3s (six) while Caron Butler added 19 points and five
rebounds for Los Angeles.



The Clippers went up 82-75 on a reverse layup by Matt Barnes
with 10:49 left but couldn't make the lead hold up.



NOTES: Injured Warriors C Andrew Bogut ran full-court sprints
before the game, an important step in his rehab from his left.
The 7-footer has not played since Nov. 7 and has missed 36 games
overall this season. Golden State coach Mark Jackson, however,
isn't putting a timetable on Bogut's return. "We've got to keep
it moving and look forward to having him one day, whenever that
comes," Jackson said. "I, like Dr. King, have a dream." ...
Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro opted to hold F Grant Hill in
order to rest him for Tuesday's game against Oklahoma City. ...
The Warriors announced that F Brandon Rush underwent successful
surgery on his injured left knee on Jan. 16. Rush has been out
for the season since Nov. 2.
