The Golden State Warriors didn't win by double-digits. For that, the Los Angeles Clippers should take solace.

After beating their first four opponents by a league-record 100 points combined, Golden State took on the Clips at home in just the 10th-ever matchup between undefeated teams with at least four wins. But Wednesday night was far from a cakewalk for the still-winless Dubs.

With Blake Griffin and Chris Paul both working offensively -- combing for 47 points -- Los Angeles gave them a run. DeAndre Jordan grabbed 13 rebounds and J.J. Redick drilled three triples.

The Clippers lead for moments during the fourth quarter, as late as with 1:16 left, by a 106-105 count.


It seemed to be the night to take advantage of a slow Stephen Curry performance. It wasn't until the fourth quarter that the league's leading scorer turned it on, but he ended up making three three-pointers in the final period, ending up with seven all together for 31 points to go along with five rebounds, four assists and no turnovers.

Every Warriors scorer ended in double-figures, including Harrison Barnes with 17 and Klay Thompson with 16.


The Dubs are now 5-0 for the second straight season, and passed their first significant test against LA, who gave them a serious battle. Against a weaker schedule coming up -- featuring the Nuggets, Kings, Pistons, Timberwolves and Nets in five of their next six -- it could be a while before we see Luke Walton's bunch drop their first game.

Warriors 112, Clippers 108
