Blake Griffin leveled on inadvertent elbow from JaVale McGee

07 January, 2018, 06:10 | Author: Carla Brady

Lou Wiliams and DeAndre Jordan led the team with 26 points each, Blake Griffin added 24 points with nine rebounds and seven assists while Wesley Johnson chipped in with 13 points. He scored 45 points in 30 minutes, including a career-high 15 free throws.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Clippers have been in great form themselves as they've won six of their last eight games but they will be looking to bounce back after losing to the Thunder in a 127-117 loss on Thursday.

With 2:11 remaining in the opening quarter, Griffin drove the baseline and was challenged at the rim by Warriors backup center JaVale McGee, who inadvertently elbowed the Clippers star in the forehead. Griffin's hand could be seen trembling while he was on the floor, but he was able to walk off the court under his own power. Stephen Curry has been back for three games, but now Kevin Durant will miss his second straight with a calf strain.




Griffin, 28, came into Saturday's game averaging 23.6 points and 7.7 rebounds.

It was yet another injury blow for the Clippers, who were missing Austin Rivers with a bruised right heel, Milos Teodosic with a foot injury, Danilo Gallinari and Patrick Beverley - who is out for the year after right knee surgery.
