Thursday night's Warriors-Clippers game had all the intensity of a Game 7, even though LA still looks incapable of reaching one.
With Chris Paul still sidelined, Austin Rivers led the Clips to an 18-point first-half lead. But the Warriors warmed up Oracle Arena with a season-high 50-point third quarter, capped by a crazy Stephen Curry buzzer-beater.

The Warriors rallied to a 123-113 win -- their 10th in a row over the Clippers -- behind that crazy quarter, which featured four technical fouls.
Draymond Green got one of those, then had a shouting match with coach Steve Kerr. The Warriors' fiery All-Star was in typical form all night, trash-talking Paul Pierce and unleashing a kick dangerously close to Blake Griffin.

But while Green came unglued, the Warriors never did, unleashing all their fury on the Clippers and quickly turning a close game into a rout. Curry finished with 35, Durant 25.
