Clippers Vs. Warriors: Blake Griffin, Eric Gordon Lead L.A. To Convincing Win, 105-91

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Eric Gordon scored 25 points and Blake Griffin set a franchise record with his 23rd straight double-double, finishing with 23 points and 12 rebounds, as the Los Angeles Clippers defeated the Golden State Warriors, 105-91, at Staples Center. Baron Davis also registered a double-double with 17 points and 11 assists for the Clippers, who earned a 106-93 victory over Denver on Wednesday and have won four of their last six. Al-Farouq Aminu chipped in with 12 points off the bench in the win.

"It's a process," Griffin said about the Clippers' improved play. "It's all about getting wins. Having Baron (Davis) back is big for us." Griffin passed Swen Nater for the franchise record for double-doubles. Nater had 22 straight as a member of the Buffalo Braves in 1978. Dorell Wright led all scorers with 27 points and Monta Ellis ended with 13 points, six assists and five boards for Golden State, which had a brief two- game winning streak halted.

Dorell Wright led all scorers with 27 points and Monta Ellis ended with 13 points, six assists and five boards for Golden State, which had a brief two- game winning streak halted. "We got guys in foul trouble and never had a chance to get into a rhythm," Golden State head coach Keith Smart said. "Blake (Griffin) plays with a high energy level. The young guy is going to keep getting better. He's electric."

Gordon and Griffin scored 12 and 11 points, respectively, in the opening quarter to help the Clippers grab a 32-28 advantage after 12 minutes. Reggie Williams' three-pointer just past the midway point of the second gave the Warriors a brief 44-41 lead. However, Gordon tied it with a three on the Clippers next trip and sparked a 21-4 run to close out the quarter.

Davis drained a pair at the stripe to break the deadlock and Gordon again hit from beyond the arc to give LA a 49-44 lead with 3:46 remaining. Davis finished out the scoring with a triple to put the hosts ahead 62-48 at the intermission. Ryan Gomes' three-point play put the Clippers up by 22, 80-62, with 4:59 left in the third and Eric Bledsoe made a driving layup in the closing seconds of the period to give Los Angeles a healthy 91-73 advantage heading into the fourth. Golden State was unable to get within single digits throughout the final quarter as LA cruised to the victory.

Despite the loss, Golden State has won 10 of the last 15 meetings with the Clippers...LA improved to 9-13 at home this season, while the Warriors dropped to 6-16 as the visitor...The Clippers shot 39.5 percent from the field, but made only 4-of-17 from three-point distance...Golden State made 39 percent of its shots and 7-of-22 from beyond the arc...DeAndre Jordan finished with a game-high 13 rebounds to go with nine points for LA.

Clippers Host Warriors In Afternoon Affair At Staples Center

The Los Angeles Clippers continue their homestand Sunday with an afternoon contest against the Golden State Warriors at Staples Center. The matchup between these two teams has featured a home court advantage of late. The Warriors have beaten the Clippers nine out of their last 10 meetings in Oakland, including a 109-91 win in the second game of the season. Meamwhile, in Los Angeles, the Clippers have won 23 of their last 32 against Golden State.

The Clippers in their last 15 games have scored 100 points six times, and they have won all six of those contests. In the other nine games, they are just 1-8. Blake Griffin continues his bid for an All-Star nod on his home floor, averaging 21.7 points and 12.7 rebounds per contest. Griffin has an amazing 22 straight double-doubles, a streak that began with Griffin's 44-point, 15-rebound coming out party against the Knicks at Staples Center.

The Knicks are back at Staples Center Sunday, but they are in town to play the Lakers in a night affair. Since that game, Griffin hasn't just been barely qualifying for double-doubles, either. He has just one 10-rebound game during that stretch and only three 11-rebound contests. In addition, he has scored fewer than 20 points just four times, with a low of 13 points. During his 22-game streak, Griffin is averaging a whopping 24.8 points and 13.9 rebounds. Griffin has reached at least 20 points and 10 rebounds in each of his last 11 games.

Another force in the middle of late for the Clippers has been DeAndre Jordan, who is coming off a 14-point, 20-rebound, six-block performance against Denver. Jordan is averaging 10.6 points and 10.9 rebounds in his last seven games, and has a stunning 19 blocks in his last three contests.Griffin and Jordan should be able to take advantage in the middle against Golden State, who is the worst defensive rebounding team in the league. The Warriors grab 68.8% of available defensive rebounds, which ranks 30th of 30 NBA teams.

The Warriors' Dorell Wright is averaging 21.1 points over his last nine games, including the first two 30-point games of his career. Monta Ellis, who is third in the NBA averaging 25.6 points per game this season, has 10 different 20-point halfs this year, second in the NBA to Kobe Bryant. Today is the first of two meetings this week with the Warriors, as the two teams will hook up again in Oakland on Friday night.
