Chris Paul, Clippers 'Verbally Agreed' To Massive Extension

This is what the Warriors have done for the past couple of seasons, hitting teams with demoralizing quarters of flawless basketball.

On Thursday night, the Western Conference powers met up at Oracle Arena, with the Warriors using a 50-point third quarter to eke out a 123-113 victory.

Rivers and super sub Jamal Crawford finished with 19 points apiece for the Clippers, who had won their last four games before the All-Star break. Golden State Warriors live radio streaming is available on 92.5 The Game. Only this time, the comeback was not fueled by the existence of the Clippers, who had outplayed them pretty convincingly for the first 22 minutes and change, but with the officials, who as we have said before irk the hell out of them when their number includes Foster. Before Paul's injury, he was averaging 17.5 points, 9.7 assists and 2.2 steals.

It was another old-fashioned beatdown, the 10th straight victory by the Warriors over the Clippers.

Chris Paul's return for the LA Clippers will have to wait.

Well-rested on fresh legs, Stephen Curry found his 3-point touch during one phenomenal flurry in one game-breaking quarter. The Clippers scored the final three points of that quarter, however, and began the second frame on a 12-0 run to turn the tables on the Dubs. The Clippers have lost 11 in a row at Oracle Arena since a 105-86 victory on December 25, 2011 - and their last win home or road was also a Christmas Day game, in 2014.

Sauber launch 2017 F1 auto and Mercedes absolutely love it
Sauber has released the first images of its C36-Ferrari, which will be driven in 2017 by Marcus Ericsson and Pascal Werhlein. Although new rules can jumble things up at the top of the ranking, rule changes tend to favour larger teams.

After the Clippers took a 144-98 beating in their last visit to Oracle Arena on January 28, they controlled the game for the first two quarters. For comparison, the Warriors, as a team, lead the league in net rating, outscoring opponents by 12.6 points per 100 possessions.

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.

So maybe Austin Rivers was right. Curry dropped 20 of his 35 points in the third quarter and was practically unstoppable.

To extend its winning streak over L.A.to 10 games, Golden State had used a big third quarter to weather an uneven first half.

Major Moment: Steph Curry's brilliance feels more spread out this season, doled out in bursts that last five minutes every other game.
