Warriors set for challenge versus Clippers

Mar 8, 2015 - 2:58 PM ( - A pair of Western Conference powers collide Sunday afternoon, as the Golden State Warriors host the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Warriors will wrap up a three-game homestand and are coming off Friday's 104-89 victory over the Dallas Mavericks.

Stephen Curry scored 22 points and dished out seven assists, while Draymond Green chipped in 18 points and nine rebounds for the Warriors, who improved to an NBA-best 26-2 at home. It also marked their sixth straight win against the Mavericks, the first time the Warriors have accomplished the feat since capturing six in a row from Dec. 26, 1996 to Dec. 16, 1997.

"He's the MVP in my book," Warriors center Andrew Bogut said of Curry.

Golden State has won four of the last five games.

The Clippers had won three in a row and seven of nine games until a 98-93 overtime loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday.

Chris Paul tallied 36 points, 12 assists and six rebounds, J.J. Redick netted 26 points and DeAndre Jordan pulled down 19 boards for Los Angeles.

"We made a lot of mistakes down the stretch. We gave them two 3s at the end that shouldn't have happened," Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.

Los Angeles and Golden State have split the last six meetings.
