Clippers Vs. Warriors Final Score: Clippers Pull Away Late, Win 105-86 In Chris Paul's Regular Season Debut

It's why everybody doesn't deserve to be called superstars.

Superstars do what Chris Paul did at the end of tonight's 105-86 win over the Golden State Warriors to start the Los Angeles Clippers highly-anticipated season off on the right foot.

Chris Paul is the definition of a superstar.

After letting his teammates do most of the damage through three-and-a-half quarters, Paul took three straight jumpers with under four minutes remaining in the game, with the final one at the end of the shot clock, to give the Clippers their biggest lead of the game at 97-84 with 2:38 remaining in the game.

Game over.

After an Andris Biedrins jump hook made it 82-81 with 6:45 left, the Clippers finished the game on a 23-5 run to pull away from what had been a back-and-forth contest most of the way.

Chauncey Billups finished with 21 points, five rebounds and four assists, Paul had 20 points and nine assists and Blake Griffin put in 22 points and seven rebounds to lead the Clippers as the newly-cemented Big Three of the West Coast.

Golden State's David Lee had a double-double with 21 points and 12 rebounds in the loss.
