Chris Paul cleared to return to play

The defense was impressive on both ends of the floor.

It's become increasingly apparent over the last few years that we're never going to get to see the Clippers actually beat the Warriors in a basketball game. Foster, who no matter what you say is one of the elite officials in the league, has also been cast as a bête noire by all things Golden State.

The Clippers have repeatedly used the same rhetoric for years now: Get in the playoffs and they like their chances.

Well this time it was from 31 feet and it was as the third quarter was expiring. Los Angeles flipped a switch in the 2nd quarter and turned the tide in their favor.

Los Angeles' Chris Paul could make his Ali-like return to the hardwood tonight as the Clippers travel to Golden State (-12.5).

Whether the Clippers play one half or no halves, one quarter or three quarters, the result is the same: They simply can't hang with the Warriors. Many teams would kill to have pieces like Griffin, Redick and DeAndre Jordan on their rosters. Paul was medically cleared to play earlier this week. Austin attacked the basket and was lights out from distance. Golden State committed 12 turnovers in the 1st half. The Warriors shot 73.9 percent (17-of-23) in the quarter. They overwhelmed the Clippers as the dropped 50 points on LA.

Penalty Rate Cuts Offer Big Break To CE And Appliance Retailers
Except for the fast food area, the Sunday penalty rates have not been brought to the same level as Saturday penalty rates. Penalty rates "frustrate the job aspirations of the unemployed and those who are only available for work on Sunday".

By that point, Curry and Durant had started to wear down the Clippers. Then came a tech on the Warriors bench, then another one on Andre Iguodala. Once again Los Angeles can hang its hat on the fact that they suffered such a loss at half strength.

Once Golden State predictably started the third quarter strong, it got the final motivation it needed from the referees.

David West will play in today's game of Golden State Warriors against Los Angels Clippers, he missed nearly 14 games due to his thumb injury.

It looked like this time, finally, might be different for the Los Angeles Clippers. Up next Steve Kerr and company take on the Nets Saturday at 7:30 PM.

Kevin Durant notched 25 points, 15 rebounds and seven assists, while Klay Thompson accounted for 18 points and four helpers.

New York's Courtney Lee led all scorers with 25 points.
