Fans try to psyche out Draymond Green by standing nervously while he shoots huge FTs. Doesn't work. He makes both.
Time out Clippers - down 107-105 with 24.0 left - no Blake
Warriors 107, Clippers 105 with 24 seconds left.
Green makes both. ... Warriors one stop for stealing Game 1
Final 24 seconds. Time for Chris Paul.
Draymond had no trouble with that first FT - easy
I hope that Warrior fan was heckling Blake about creationism.
Draymond Green with excellent position there for the rebounds. How cool can he be here?
Klay Thompson miss but Collison foul on Draymond Green - 2 FT with 24.0 left
Draymond Green to the line with a chance to take the lead.
Green to the FT line with 24 seconds left, game tied
It'll be Warriors ball. That's the second missed fast-break opportunity for the Clippers.
Maybe it didn't. Too close to overturn?
Also, officiating has been trash this game.
Chris Paul with the steal, gets it ahead to Collison who loses control, out of bounds... Golden State ball tied at 105 with 37.7 sec to play
Where’s Jim Barnett to tell Warriors fans about the 2-for-1 opportunity here? (@uograd6)
Amazing body control by Steph
And Blake Griffin fouls out too.
Ball might have nicked Stephen Curry's knee before it landed out of bounds. Tough to tell.
This wonderful game is gonna end. Then the Pacers and Hawks are gonna play. OK bye.
"Two hands, Engleberg. Two hands!"
And the first Clipper to be murdered by Chris Paul this postseason is Darren Collison.
Definitely Warriors ball.
Clippers are going to get the ball. It touched Curry before going out
Two hands, Darren. Two hands.
Clippers must have split personality cause refs gave them six seconds on previous possession...
Loved the "inadvertent" water toss that happened to hit a guy that appeared to be in a Warriors shirt from Griffin after he fouled out.
Pretty good finish here with Warriors-Clippers opener, tied game at 105 w/ 30 seconds left on ABC if you're not watching.
CP3 just stripped the ball from Klay - but Collison lost in transition - lookt o me like Warriors ball - being reviewed
David Lee's shut down Blake by forcing foul calls. Amazing.
Hahahahahhahahahahaha at Griffin dumpin water on that fan
Love that Blake just spilled water on a GS fan. Completely by accident. He was just mad about fouling out. Rightly so.
Blake Griffin is so out of control out there it's painful to watch. Just doesn't read the situation with patience or clarity.
Blake is done
Blake Griffin fouls out on a loose ball foul with 48.3 second left in a tie game. Rough night for the officials.
Blake Griffin has fouled out in a tie game with 48 seconds remaining.
Griffin fouls out
He fouled out ... on that?
Blake Griffin called for his 6th, fouls out with the game tied, less than a minute to play.

Blake Griffin fouls out.
Blake Griffin miss - then foul - he's out
Barnes nailing that three underlines what Popovich says privately: If Harrison makes shots like he did in last year's playoffs, Dubs r scary
Doc Rivers doing the Matt Barnes-for-J.J. Redick defense vs. offense switch. Smart.
Darren Collison - handing a very tough defensive assignment (Klay Thompson)
Darren Collison playing some great D, though Curry bailed him out a bit on that play.
Collison is a blanket on Curry.
Clippers have the ball with 1:06 left and score tied after forcing shot-clock violation.
Clippers looking for a stop with a tied game at 105 - 1:15 left
Don't believe I've ever seen a boring Warriors game.
Pacers locker room focused pregame. Cope listening to music and playing dominos, as usual; PG getting a massage; Watson using a foam roller.
The Warriors gave away Game 1 in Denver last year at the hands of Andre Miller. Tied with 91 seconds left, Golden State is at risk in LA.
Forty-eight minutes may not be able to contain this game. It's tied, 105-105, with 1:31 left.
Chris Paul making threes at nutcracker time of a playoff game, defying strategy to go under (moving) picks
Biggest FTs of BG's career so far. He turned to crowd, clapping and yelling "Let's go" after timeout.
Blake Griffin drills 2 FT's to tie the game -- screams "Let's go" at the fans - 91 seconds left 105-105.
Blake Griffin at the line with a chance to tie as "MVP" chants come from this STAPLES Center crowd
The Clippers have yet to lose at home this season when they led at any point in the 4th quarter. They are 33-0.
Clippers still do not have a foul in the fourth quarter.
Blake Griffin 2 FT, looking to tie at 105 - hits the first
Thats the sound of the Golden State fan rushing back to Harrison Barnes Bandwagon
Huge Harrison Barnes 3 after Clippers blow a fastbreak chance.
Curry got clobbered ... Harrison Barnes saves a layup with a block on Paul and a 3 at the other end
CRAZZZZZZZZZZZZYYYYYY sequence. Clippers can still tie with two Blake Griffin free throws.
Harrison Barnes gets the block and then hits the huge 3-pointer. Wow.
This Warriors-LAC game is nutso.
Great plays by Harrison Barnes
Wow - Harrison Barnes 3 in transition
Great show on that pick and roll by Blake Griffin.
Collison split a pair at the line - LAC up 1 with a couple min left
Clippers 103, Warriors 102 with 2 minutes left.
Clippers lead 103-102 after Collison splits 2 FTs
Steph Curry has had a poor 4th quarter but he'll still take the big shot.
Upon deeper review, Andre Iguodala never had more than four personal fouls in a single game all season.
Should be a law that this LAC / GSW series goes 7
DeAndre Jordan hitting two free throws > Chris Paul hitting two 3-pointers.
Steph Curry had been absolutely brutal this quarter. No player has his good games more overblown & his poor games ignored quite like him.
Chris Paul is the difference. Klay has to learn he’s going to pull that 3 if he goes under. But can’t blame Klay, too dangerous on drive too
Good thing Jackson left Andre out there with 4 fouls in the first half. Lacob has been mean mugging Jackson the whole game
Stephen Curry has six turnovers
NBA regular-season game < NBA playoff game < NBA playoff game fourth quarter
Bad pass from Curry - forcing it into the post - gets Clippers the ball back. 102 all, 2:10 left
Chris Paul got some nerve.
Big steal from Darren Collison, who has saved the Clippers on more than a couple of occasions this season.
It's apparently how you start...and finish that counts for Clippers.
DJ makes two free throws and CP3 hits a 3-pointer to tie the game at 102 with 2:10 left.
Warriors go right back to Klay post up on Collison - but DC steals the entry pass - and is fouled by Thompson 102-102 2:10 left
Monster play by Darren Collison - steals entry pass to Thompson and draw a foul. Will be headed to the line with a chance to go up.
Playoff CP is insane, in case you forgot.
big 'ol onions
CP3… literally. AK
Darren Collison makes huge steal and draws a foul. Clippers might steal this one after all.
Wow, Chris Paul.
Chris Paul ties the game with a three. Clippers 102, Warriors 102 with 2:10 left.
Chris Paul ties it up at 102
CP3 ties with another clutch 3
102-102 after Chris Paul 3 -- 2:20 left.
Chris Paul 3 and we're tied, 102-102. Wow.
Klay Thompson posting up Collison well - tough matchup for LAC
"...and the crowd goes wild. Like Holyfield just won the fight."
Andre Iguodala never fouled out once in the regular season. Got only 20 minutes tonight. Big minutes by Harrison Barnes coming up.
Two big makes from Jordan at the line. Warriors 100, Clippers 99 with 2:50 left,
Makes the 2nd.
And Jordan makes both ... 100-99 Warriors
Fitting DJ made both AND got double-double
DJ hits the second - 100-99 GST
DeAndre Jordan makes two HUGE free throws to bring Clippers within 100-99.
You knew Jackson was going to do this eventually--and Jordan makes both free throws. Wow.
Hack a Deandre with 3 min left? Oh come on.
Warriors choose to DeAndre Jordan on the line - he hits the first
Makes the first. Crowd erupts.
Big FTs for DJ after intentional foul
Hack-a-Jordan has started. Warriors 100, Clippers 97 with 3:04 left.
DJ to the line -- big FT's
Iguodala just fouled out
Andre Iguodala fouls out after playing just 19 minutes. The referees have taken him and Blake Griffin out of this game.
Iguodala fouls out with 3:04 left. Huge moment for the Clippers to get away from that defensive presence. Warriors 100-97.
Golden State just lost their best wing defender as Andre Iguodala fouls out. 3:04 to play, GSW up 100-97
Clippers have ball - within 3 100-97 with 3:04
Chris Paul is really smart.
CP3 with a big three-pointer to cut the Warriors' lead to 3, 100-97, with 3:04 left.
Andre Iguuodola fouled out with 3:04 left
Iggy fouls out at 3:04... CP doing his thing.
O'Neal can't be a playmaker off the dribblen when opponents trap Steph like Bogut or Lee can.
Andre Iguodala fouls out - tough game for Dre
Andre Iguodala fouls out.
Clutch 3 by CP3. ... Then he just fouled out Iguodala
And DeAndre’s back in, so OK. Still, strategy is the same: involve DeAndre in the play, make Blake be the rim protector with his five fouls.
Big Baby heads to the bench with a roaring applause from this home crowd. He's hustlin today.
6-2 run by the Clippers to cut the Warriors' lead to 100-94 w 3:39 left.
Glen Davis was Clippers' hustle MVP of the game.
Clippers do big so O'Neal comes back in
Warriors gotta go at Blake. He won't play any defense with 5 fouls
Clippers making their push back - but Griffin can all but stand there defensively with 5 fouls
DeAndre not on the floor late in a playoff game. This seems familiar.
Warriors' ball movement is downright Spursian.
Norris Division 4 Life.
Blake Griffin, who has played less than 15 minutes, is back in the game for the final 4 minutes (maybe). He has 5 fouls.
Griffin back in - guarding Draymond Green
Redick back in for LACs (about time)
Draymond back in for O'Neal.
Redick sitting a long time for a guy who is 8 of 11 shooting
This would be a rough loss for Golden State. Clippers have plenty of offense, totally possible. They should keep involving DeAndre in p&rs.
Warriors 98-92 with 5:07 left. They had Game 1 in their hands twice last year and didn't close.
Prediction: Clips come back to win. There are five minutes left in this game and only one team has Chris Paul.
That missed Chris Paul layup might really hurt the Clippers.
Doc Rivers said that he told Jamal Crawford Wed. to keep shooting, no matter what; needed him to get the rust off. So far today: 2 of 11.
Chris Paul misses a layup that would've cut it to 6. Still, Clippers showing signs of 4th quarter life.
Blake Griffin coming back in with 5:07 left and the Clippers trailing, 98-92. It's a ballgame again.
Steph got laid out
Curry and Lee each have 6 turnovers.
DeAndre just murdered Steph on that screen. AK
DJ leveled Curry on screen
That's 20 turnovers for the Warriors
Curry's 6th turnover
David Lee’s finishes has been the difference this half. They’re letting him cut all he wants.
No reason for Big Baby to double that Klay ISO.
Again, GSW uses the pick and roll as a vehicle to induce a trap, then moved the ball.
Last few minutes or more, there are no Clippers going to the offensive boards...
Iso ball took Warriors rhythm ... Moment ball loved, Klay got a look at a 3
CP3, Darren Collison and Jamal Crawford, Danny Granger all struggling from the field
Crawford, Collison and Granger -- 4/25 from the field.
Klay Thompson is in full pout mode right now.
Shot-making is not the Clippers' strength today.
Why didn’t Chris Paul go after David Lee? That’s a little weird.
Big Baby has had to play a lot more than expected due to Blake Griffin's foul trouble, but he'll hate what he sees on film rebounding-wise.
Baby just made steal, got fouled by Lee and is imploring fans to get excited. By imploring I mean screaming loudly
Glen Davis forces a turnover and does his best to get the crowd back into this game.
Big Baby with a hustle play and he's trying to get the crowd pumped up.
That's 18 turnovers for Warriors
Gary Nova on competing for the job: "I prepare that way every day so you just have to keep being hungry and have a chip on your shoulder."
Big Baby getting pumped up after forcing turnover.
But that means he took out Draymond. Hmm.
Andre Iguodala is back in with five fouls.
That Derek Norris beard doe
Iguodala back in. Jackson is going for it here. I agree.
Where was this Jermaine O'Neal the past 3,4,5 years??
Great effort by Dominguez. Great dive, strike to 1st from the 3rd-base bag. Cespedes barely beat that. Runners on the corners, 2 outs.
Though really he should have made that one.
Normally polite to a fault, Dwane Casey to a new reporter that asked if the team let down the fans? “Get educated on basketball."
Clippers reserves besides Big Baby shooting 3-of-23 from the field.
David Lee must've thought of next year's Sloan conference when he made that pass to Curry.
Jamal Crawford is 1-of-9 and that one was the half-court buzzer-beater bank.
Crawford, 1 for 9, still looking hobbled
Jamal Crawford is horrendous today. How can Rivers keep him out there?
Normally polite to a fault, Dwane Casey to a first-time Raptors reporter. “Get educated on basketball."
Jamal Crawford is 1/9 from field, 1/4 on 3-pointers
Clippers led 12-1 at the start of the game. GS out scored them 92-72 since.
Jamal Crawford just doesn't have it - 1/9 from the field -- only bucket was 1/2 court shot at end of 1st Q.
Jamal Crawford probably needs to stop shooting until Game 2.
Warriors had 11 assists in the first half and shot 38.3 percent. Now up to 48.6 percent with 22 assists
Clippers just aren't getting any sort of stops - down big now (11) in 4th
Clippers' interior defense getting slaughtered.
CP3 back in game
Jermaine O'Neal is getting a ton of easy dunks today. Warriors 91, Clippers 80 with 10:57 left in the 4th quarter.
Game is getting away from Clippers quickly. A lot of inside shots not being contested closely
Like … what is DeAndre doing out there on that last play? Scheme calls for him to be aggressive, but not like that.
Warriors up 11 after O'Neal's second dunk.
Warriors' interior passing is outstanding today.
ATL’s Mike Budenholzer on their offense: “Everybody’s looking for something magical. It’s really just we’re going to keep doing what we do.”
Granger hits technical foul shot, snapping a 10-0 run from the Warriors.
Crying right now after that dunk by Jermaine
How you gonna do that to JO? He gets like one of those a decade.
Counting the basket, but after the dunk, O'Neal hangs on the basket and kicks the ball in the stands-- called for the Tech.
1st technical of game on Jermiane O'Neal with 11:39 lefft
If the Warriors keep this up, how long can Doc keep Blake on the bench. Could get interesting.
Warriors third' quarter. http://t.co/cPD3w2IuAw
Warriors shot 70% in third
Collison is -13, Crawford -15.
Doc (on TV) on fouls: "We just gotta play through it."
Warriors GM Bob Myers takes a seat next to Jarrett Jack at Staples Center, and they're chit-chatting.
I just alerting them I would be starting a rumor
Warriors 14/20 in thrid quarter
Bob Myers sitting/chatting with Jarrett Jack
Mike Callahan: “YOU get a foul! And YOU get a foul! And YOU get a foul!”
How deep into fourth quarter do Clippers go before bringing Blake Griffin back? I would go to about 6-minute mark.
Warriors' exceptional passing is exposing Clippers' trapping of Curry. It's called proper preparation...
The Warriors “guarding” DeAndre Jordan. http://t.co/0SoIJESaqa
Several tough calls today gives the fourth quarter an interesting plot twist, mostly for Clippers
End of 3rd: GSWs 87-79. It’s not just who will play well at the end. Also who will be there. Iguodala and Griffin have 5 fouls, CP3 has 4.
End of third quarter: Warriors 87, Clippers 79.
Warriors finish third quarter on 8-0 run, take 8-point lead into the fourth. That guy Draymond Green is currently +10. Lee is +7.
