Warriors pull away late against Clippers

Monta Ellis scored 32 points and the Golden 0 run Monday night to beat the Los Angeles 97, and snap a three-game losing streak.

David Lee added 24 points and 13 rebounds in the win while Ekpe Udoh had 19 points and eight boards before going down late in the fourth quarter with a knee injury.

The Warriors held LA scoreless for the final three-plus minutes. Brandon Rush knocked down a three-pointer for a 98-97 lead, sparking a game-ending run that was marked by big plays on both sides of the court.

Chris Paul scored 24 points for the Clippers, but none in the fourth quarter. He missed a jumper early in Golden State's run and had another shot from the foul line blocked by Dominic McGuire.

Blake Griffin threw the ball out of bounds near the end after coming up with an offensive rebound and finished with 21 points and nine boards.
