LOS ANGELES -- Playing without star center Andrew Bogut, the Golden State Warriors came into Los Angeles and stole a 114-110 victory over the previously unbeaten Clippers. "It's just a great win for us. A great win for us," Golden State head coach Mark Jackson said. "I'm extremely proud of my guys." Carl Landry came off the bench for Golden State to punish the Clippers for 23 points and 10 rebounds. After trailing by double figures in the fourth quarter, the Clippers tied the game in the final two minutes. "We don't quit," Jackson said. "I've been part of teams when say ‘It's not our night. Things aren't going our way,'" Jackson said. "But we gutted it out. We defended and we executed." Chris Paul cut the lead to one, and Stephen Curry split on a pair of free throws, giving the Clippers a chance to tie. But as he made a left-handed lay-up, Curry stepped over and took the charge. "We had to find a way to contain him," Jackson said. "We had to trust our defensive principals." Curry scored 23 in the win in addition to taking the pivotal charge. Paul and Jamal Crawford led the Clippers with 27 each. The game almost screeched to a halt in the third quarter as officials blew their whistles on nearly every possession. Refs called 18 fouls in the quarter, as Golden State managed to stretch their lead. After the Clippers tied the game at 67, a Curry 3-pointer put the Warriors back on top for the rest of the quarter. Caron Butler, who scored just two points in the first half, scored 16 of the Clippers' 26 points in the third. Golden State out-rebounded the Clippers 48-33 and pulled down 16 offensive rebounds, leading to 19 second-chance points. "We got out-worked tonight," Clippers head coach Vinny Del Negro said. Following emotional wins over the Memphis Grizzlies and the Golden State Warriors, the Los Angeles Clippers had to avoid the natural drop in intensity Saturday against Golden State at Staples Center. But in the early going, the Warriors brought the fight to the Clippers, forcing early turnovers and out-running the home team. "We came out flat," Clippers center DeAndre Jordan said. "They jumped on us right away." Thanks to seven first-quarter points from Stephen Curry and 12 bench points, the Warriors jumped out to a 33-24 lead. The Clippers' only offense came from Blake Griffin, who missed his first four shots before ending the quarter with nine points. Golden State let the Clippers back into the game after going scoreless for three minutes to start the second quarter. The Clippers tied the score at 49 before an 8-4 run to close the half. Curry led all scorers with 15 points heading into the locker rooms. NOTES: The Warriors announced forward Brandon Rush would miss the remainder of the season after tearing his ACL Friday night in Golden State's loss to Memphis. Rush and center Andrew Bogut (rest) were inactive for the Warriors Saturday. ... Grant Hill (bone bruise in knee), Chauncey Billups (rehabbing Achilles tendon) and Trey Thompkins (bone bruise in knee) were inactive for the Clippers. ... Chris Paul, Matt Barnes and DeAndre Jordan were called for technical fouls in the first half for the Clippers. Los Angeles was also called for technical fouls for defensive three seconds. Carl Landry and the Golden State bench were whistled for technical fouls. The Warriors were also called for a defensive three seconds technical. Blake Griffin and David Lee were called for a double technical in the fourth quarter. Jarrett Jack was also hit with a technical foul in the fourth.
