Chris Paul set to make National Basketball Association return

"Is that the most we've had all season in a quarter?" In the 123-113 victory the Golden State Warriors against the Los Angeles Clippers, the blueprint to this level of dominance has become downright familial.

The Warriors own a 12-game lead over the second-place Clippers in the Pacific Division. Golden State started hot from the field going 10/20.

But the Warriors responded with 17-for-23 shooting (73.9 percent) in the third period, including 9-for-15 (60.0 percent) from 3-point range, to regain the lead for good en route to their 10th straight victory over the Clippers. Golden State committed 12 first-half turnovers, the total coach Steve Kerr strives for over an entire game.

NOTES: The Warriors also had 10-game winning streaks over the Clippers from 1971-74 and 1976-78. The Warriors often lollipop their way through games - at least until they find some spark, some reason to kick themselves into gear. And looking at the final score, they didn't really get embarrassed in the normal sense-the Warriors are a better team, the Clippers are missing Chris Paul, and it's a road game.

Stephen Curry had 20 points on five 3-pointers during the third frame including an absolute dagger to end it.

Off-Duty LAPD Cop Fires Gun During Altercation With Teens, Protests Erupt
It was at that point that the officer, with one hand still on the 13-year-old, reached into his waistband and pulled out a gun. The officer can be seen pulling the teen over the hedge as the person recording and other witnesses run away from the scene.

This will come as a sharp blow to Warrior fans who like things the way they are, but they probably can no longer use Scott Foster as an alibi for failure, or a stalking horse for rage.

The Clippers have run into some bad luck since last year's playoffs. He finished with eight points in 16 minutes before the injury, which was diagnosed as a sprain.

Truth be told, this was never a game after the third-quarter downpour.

Well this time it was from 31 feet and it was as the third quarter was expiring.

So maybe Austin Rivers was right. The Clippers entered Thursday having yet to seriously threaten Golden State this season. The Warriors would go on to lead for the remainder of the contest, but not before Curry put the finishing touches on his third-quarter explosion.

The Definition: Chris Paul is due back within the next couple games and the Clippers should be at full strength for the first time since December.
