Klay Thompson on Stephen Curry: "Man, his handles are crazy. To make someone like Chris Paul fall is pretty impressive."
"As soon as I saw him go down, I knew I had to shoot it"
Blake Griffin: "In a seven-game series, I like our odds against anybody."
Blake Griffin on if anything GSW did tonight rubbed him wrong: "We've had our things in the past, but tonight was pretty straightforward."
Blake Griffin on Warriors having many fans at Staples: "I don't know as far as what we can do, but it'd be great if it wasn't that way."
Don't sweat the small stuff? That's BS. You can/should be able to control small stuff. It's the BIG stuff you can't control. Sweat that.

Wale is one of them dudes that makes you think about life when you listen to his music
This new Wale album = crack
"Oh no, I wrecked your car!!" "What??" "April Fools!!" (Sigh) "But seriously, I wrecked your car."
Blake Griffin: "It would be great if it wasnt that way. Its kind of like when we play the Lakers. It would be great if it wasn’t like that."
Blake Griffin: “Home court advantage is just not there for us. If that’s how it feels in the playoffs it’s not looking good.”
Yes, I think Stephen Curry has passed Chris Paul as the NBA's best point guard. No, I don't think one crossover is an important indicator.
CP3 being a good sport about Steph's crossover. Happens to everybody.
Not saying, just saying: Chris Paul was plus 4. Stephen Curry was minus 1. Both scored 27 points. Paul had nine assists, Curry had four.
Doc Rivers: "That is what they are. They are shot makers. It was hard to turn them off."
DeAndre Jordan: "We're going to see them later on down the line, so we have to just be able to take the punches."
Warriors' consistency is exceptional. Pre-ASW: +10.9 point differential & .824 Win% Post-ASW: +10.6 point differential & .826 Win%
UPDATE: The Wolves have fallen 45 games back of the Warriors.
More Rivers: "When you play a team like that and youre holding them down, at some point they are going to start making shots."
Rivers: "They kind of flipped the switch, but we flipped off the switch in my opinion."
Stephen Curry on the play with Chris Paul: "I snaked through the paint and kind of was just probing."
50 years ago, no one sees Chris Paul fall except people in the stadium—maybe they tell a few friends. Now, the whole globe sees immediately.
anyway... *cues up Kentucky film*
"Never Can Say Goodbye" is probably my favorite Jackson 5 song of all-time. Either that or Who's Loving You. So many hits, though.
The Warriors are 5.5 games up on the Hawks for the NBA’s best record with eight to play.
Curry is 31 for 50 from 3 over his last 6 games (62 percent) He is up to 251 threes. He needs 22 to break his own record with 8 games left
The Spurs' five titles have come with three No. 1 seeds, a No. 2 seed and a No. 3 seed. Of course, they now are 2.5 games out of the No. 2.
Talked to someone within the Warriors organization today who said 60 wins feels like looking at a video game or some type of fantasy game.
I'm not predicting anything yet, but what opponent wins a playoff game at Oracle? Not the one that played the Warriors tonight.
That was an Alpha Dog win by GSW. Nothing to play for anymore, no Draymond, then Doc chirps pregame and they took it personally. Great team.
Warriors can still finish tied for the 2nd best record all-time. 69-13. Long shot tho.
Here are your updated Western Conference standings: http://t.co/eTVWVgIMOD
Don't worry, the Iguodala flop call was just a preemptive April Fools joke.
If anything, Warriors have shortened rotation and adopted playoff mentality early. Easier to keep it on, than turn it back on
Spurs and Clippers are now tied in the loss column for 5th. LAC will almost certainly own tiebreaker due to conf record, so need more help.
Clippers have done a lot right of late - still need to prove they can beat the best teams in the league
Clippers let that one get away - Warriors 110 - LAC 106
Clippers need Jamal Crawford back in a major way.
Now onto Portland, where the Clippers desperately need a victory.
Clippers lose, 110-106. No punches thrown, though.
Warriors are 13-1 vs winning teams since the All-Star Break
The Warriors could coast to the finish, but as a staff they decided a few weeks ago to focus on sharpening for the playoffs.
Best home record and best road record and both by more than a little.
With the Clippers’ loss, the Spurs and LAC are now tied in the loss column with 26 a piece. LAC narrowly holds 5 seed.
Warriors 110, Clippers 106. Golden State might never lose again. http://t.co/8NwkGfeJUY
Final: Golden State Warriors beat Clippers, 110-106. The Warriors snapped the Clippers' seven game win streak.
Clippers lose to Warriors. Heavy minutes for starters headed into back to back vs. Portland Wednesday. Now tied in loss column with Spurs.
FINAL: Warriors 110, Clippers 106.
The Warriors have so much depth & are almost impossible to force into a mismatch. Health assumed, they’re a seriously tough out. AK
GSW beats LAC, 110-106, for 10th straight win. 16.9 average win margin during streak. Blake Griffin w/ 6th career 40+ point game in loss
Without Draymond Green, Warriors get 61st victory in LA in a game the Clippers wanted badly. Big time. GSWs are steaming towards 66+ wins.
Fool’s gold? The Clippers lose to the Mavericks and Rockets, win seven in a row vs. a weak schedule, then lose at home to Golden State.
Somebody should do a Kerr-mit sipping tea photoshop. Got a feeling we'll need it during the Clips-Warriors second-round series.
Chris Paul actually had 25 points and 9 assists but no one will be talking about that tonight.
Eliminate the backcourt ...
Warriors get their 61st win. I'll never forget the Kings going 61-21 in 2001-02. It's such a fun ride and I'm happy for Warriors fans.
Klay with the defensive play that will seal this game.
Wow. Rough night for CP3.
Drake just left so Warriors win
Drake has seen enough. http://t.co/nhQ9sO7krw
Despite weeknight, not a single person has left early to beat traffic. Then again, Cardinals arent playing this weekend so that might be it
Every Clippers starter logging 38+ mins heading into the back-to-back in Portland. They all still have to fly up here. NBA travel is brutal
MVP chants for Steph Curry - quickly drowned out by boos at Staples Center
*vape* Amin, why do we park in a driveway and drive in a parkway?
I swear, some of yall just get that loud and open up Twitter on your computers
Normally I'd want OT but I have to get up early tomorrow. So of course it's happening.
The Warriors are up 106-102 with 22 seconds left...
CP tried to get the obligatory Revlon call from the refs on that flop
One flop does not deserve another.
Wait! Doc is complaining? That NEVER happens.
Got to give the shooter space to land. Barnes didn't make much contact, but the NBA has made that call a point of emphasis.
Andre Iguodala with the second worst flop tonight
That's not a good call at all ...
Warriors up 103-102 on the Clippers, 1:26 remaining. If you're not watching, you should be.
Crowd about to run onto the court Rucker style because DJ hit 2 free throws (albeit on 3 attempts due to lane violation)
Entire Warriors coaching staff on their feet, Kerr deliberating with Gentry. Good thing they "took the night off"
Andrew Bogut fouls out with 1:26 remaining.
Why I'd be on board for 6th: If you can open vs. Memphis/avoid Warriors as long as possible ... that seems OK.
I apologize for the thumbnail and assure you I am not selling you carpet cleaner
And to think, I almost didnt come to this game tonight. Might be the best one I've been to all year.
Bogut seemed a little miffed that Lee didn't pass to him on that last play ...
Serious question: If you're GS, why not foul DeAndre for the next minute? It's tied--wouldn't that give you an edge?
Imagine a world in which, instead of Love, the Cavs had Wiggins and Gobert?
I still contend the 6th seed is better than the 4th or 5th. Maybe I'm crazy.
David Lee's jersey needs a popped collar
Klay almost had his highlight of the year right there.
Kerr literally said "This game is more important to them than it is to us" in his in-game interview and they still might win.
CP with excellent jam of Curry when he was coming off screens
Clippers 96, Warriors 96 with 4:50 left. Blake Griffin with 40 points, 10 rebounds and is 8/8 from free-throw line.
More entertaining: Curry v. Paul? Bogut v. Jordan? Green v. Griffin? Rivers v. his furrowed brow?
Best passing center: Bogut, Noah or Gasol?
Spurs fans probably want to best out a "Go Steph Go" right about now, no? Big game brewing in LA.
Pop, on decision to ride Cory Joseph instead of struggling Patty Mills at backup PG tonight: http://t.co/Uuq93bOiNg
Man, CP3 must've made some real bad "yo momma" jokes to get this repeated treatment from Steph Curry.
Stephen Curry is checking back into the game.
Barnes 0 for 7, Iguodala 0 for 3, Livingston 0 for 3.
Tim Duncan, on Spurs' roll: "We're starting to feel good about ourselves and our effort and the kind of consistency we have out there."
Parker, on red-faced Pop timeout in the first quarter: "He was on fire. He didn't want another New York."
Blake Griffin up to 38 points - Curry 25 - LAC 94-91 with 6:56 left
I can barely see out the window. Oops. I need to get away from the window. And I need to stop tweeting!!!
More TP: "Do I feel old? Yes, 1,000 games is a lot. But I feel great. As long as I'm healthy, I feel like I can play like Tony Parker."
It's raining like crazy in OKC. This is absolutely no fun. Weatherman said 80 MPH winds. Where is my mama?
CP has supernatural spatial awareness. How did he know Speights was there?! Great foul draw
Tony Parker, on making it to 1K games: "I could have never imagined that. Never. It's beyond all expectation. It's better than my dream."
Clippers bench started the 4th quarter. Got outscored 9-0 in the first three minutes and were quickly taken out.
Carl's Jr. really needs to decide whether it's going to be Carl's Jr. or Hardees. Been going with the dual names for like three years.
2013 redraft: 1. Gobert 2. Antetokounmpo 3. Noel 4. Oladipo 5. Len 6. Plumlee 7. Adams 8. Dieng 9. McLemore 10. Carter-Williams
The Clippers starters are all back in after they fell behind by 3 with over nine minutes left in the game.
Clippers bench has given up huge leads the past two games. They desperately need Jamal Crawford back. No consistent scorer on second unit.
Was just about to turn in and realized big weather is bearing down on OKC. Just saw a report on TV of 85 MPH wind gusts!
Warriors take the lead 89-88 with 9:52 left in the 4th quarter. Big Baby kicking and screaming after that last GSW basket. Blake back in.
Speights with the pass of his life
Fourth quarter just starting. Boy are the Clippers going to get into Portland late tonight.
Ben McLemore wore the DLillard 1s *against* the Blazers in Sacramento this season. Add Matt Barnes to the list.
Clippers 88, Warriors 82 entering the 4th quarter. Blake Griffin with 34 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists.
So nice to watch 2 NBA teams play basketball that genuinely can't stand each other.
I’ve seen every vine of this game but there was nothing more unlikely than that Big Baby spin move
36-35 quarter there. Whew.
Heading into the 4th, the Clippers have an 88-82 lead over the Warriors.
That was the Heliflopter by CP3
Big Baby and the Baby Face
Worst flop ever
The NBA Playoffs are in 18 days. MY BODY IS READY.
Best part about Clippers-Warriors rivalry is newcomers want to know how it got started but they find themselves involved in it quickly.
Seventy something games in and I'm still getting used to the sight of Angry Steve Kerr
DeMarcus Cousins needs to throw everyone for a loop and actually release the Boogie Smooth album tomorrow.
Clips-Warriors series has to happen. This is everything I've ever wanted from basketball.
The Clippers are that team that has been good all season but no one wanted to admit it because the jokes were easier.
Best NBA game I've watched in awhile.
Steph vs CP is the new best NBA rivalry of dudes that actually guard each other. The best non-playoffs Clips crowd i can remember.
Draymond is talking nonstop everytime the Clippers come on offense.
Steph and Klay are in that catch and shoot before even looking at the rim because it doesn't even matter, they know it will go in mode.
A heat check is having a Warriors guards.
Clippers about to lose this game by double digits
Oh come on
Two weeks to go and no idea who should be the MVP.
So, is this the night Steph cements his MVP (Most Vined Player)?
Further drilling home George Orwell's "Animal Farm." ... When a "person" includes businesses, religious orgs., groups, per new Indiana law.
Chris Paul is my pick-up game alter ego....I'ma need my man to step up. Steph is killin him lol
Sign me up for a Warriors-Cavs final. Please.
Judging by the 1000s of craned necks, Warriors need to bring their own jumbotron for Stephen Curry highlights next time they come to Staples
Steph is real life saying to CP3 "that watch is nice, is that what you bought for me?"
A Warriors-Clippers series goes five games this year, tops, and once again CP3 and Blake Griffin's best June work is for State Farm and Kia.
Not so sure, as has been suggested, that Steph needs his Heisman Moment. Whatever that means in the NBA
Klay has 13 pts in 7 minutes this quarter.
When Klay is on ... Beautiful
The Warriors have two of these guys. (I've said this before. It's still true.)
lol the game is tied
It's Clippers 67, Warriors 67 with 5:23 left in the 3rd quarter. The Clippers' 17-point lead is a distant memory now.
The game is tie at 67-67 with 5:23 left in the third.
Man, they shoot it
Clippers/Warriors series please
Steph out here trying to end Chris Paul's career tonight
Klay knocks down the 3 and says what up to Drake
Hey man, somebody grab Chris Paul and hug him....that man needs it
PA announcer calls it a "hard common foul." What?
PA announcer adds "hard" to the common foul ruling.
Nobody is more upset about the demise of the fauxhawk than David Lee.
"Chris Paul" and "Damn CP3" are trending on Twitter.
Clippers once 17 point lead has been cut to two, 62-60, with 7:14 left in the third.
David Lee and Blake Griffin were made to play against one another
Blazers have to be thrilled that the Warriors have made a game of this with the Clippers on the front end of a back-to-back.
Now that's not a play you see every day: DJ spiked the ball, it hit the rim and caromed to a cutting Blake
Portland Pilots beat Oregon 6-4 in baseball. Ducks finish with a 7-11 record in March. They play Seattle at Hillsboro Hops stadium tomorrow.
Someone set that Chris Paul vine to a James Brown drum break
