Curry propels Warriors past injury-riddled Clippers

Blake Griffin took a bit of tumble when he collided with a JaVale McGee elbow to the head on a drive the basket, falling to the floor with what clearly looked like a brain injury. He should be considered tentatively questionable for Monday's game against the Hawks until further information emerges.

The Warriors completed an undefeated three-game road trip after defeating the Clippers 121-105 on Sunday (AEDT).

Leading by 9 at halftime, the Warriors out-scored the Clippers 39-21 in the third quarter, expanding the lead to as many as 30 points.

The injury happened with about two minutes left remaining in the first quarter and Griffin didn't return to action afterwards. The five-time All-Star missed 14 games already this season because of a sprained MCL.?

He is averaging 36 points on 58 percent shooting, including 53.8 percent from three-point range, to go with six rebounds and 4.7 assists in the four games since he returned to the court December 30 against Memphis.

"We had 90 points of offense sitting in street clothes", Rivers said of his depleted squad, but he acknowledged that the Warriors "offensive assault" affected his players.
