The NBA has an eight-game slate on tap for Saturday, starting with a matinee in Los Angeles.

"Honestly I didn't see it", coach Doc Rivers said. As a team, the Clippers shot 45 percent from the field and they were right there with the Thunder all the way until the fourth quarter where they were held to just 20 points. Curry nearly definitely would have at least notched his sixth career 50-point game.

It all reinforced why the Warriors are so fortunate to have two former MVPs.

Griffin will end his night with 5 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 block in 10 minutes of action.

After a back-to-back set in Texas, Golden State flew to Los Angles on Friday with plenty of time to enjoy the city's famed nightlife. He returned to the lineup for the Clippers' victory December 29 over the Lakers and led them to wins in four of five games before Saturday.

Blake Griffin caught an elbow from Warriors center JaVale McGee and stayed on the floor for several minutes afterwards. Clippers' medical staff quickly attended to Griffin, who was diagnosed with a concussion.

With five rotation players sidelined by injury, L.A. entered halftime trailing by nine points.

Leading by 9 at halftime, the Warriors out-scored the Clippers 39-21 in the third quarter, expanding the lead to as many as 30 points.
