Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Elton Brand and Jeff McInnis scored 20 points apiece and Darius Miles added 18 to lead the Los Angeles Clippers to their third straight victory, a 109-95 triumph over the Golden State Warriors.

Brand also grabbed 12 rebounds and McInnis dished out 13 assists as the Clippers returned from a five-game road trip and have won three in a row for the first time since December 16-22. They moved within three games of Seattle for the final Western Conference playoff berth.

"We're playing with a lot of confidence," said Brand, who is averaging 23 points and 17.2 rebounds over his last five games. "And we've improved on the road. We've shown we can win on the road. This is the time. We've got to get this playoff push right now. We're going to give it our best. My past two years, I haven't been playing for anything but pride right now. Now I'm playing for the playoffs."

"Every win is a good win," Clippers coach Alvin Gentry said. "The tough thing to do is play a game when you come off a road trip. So it's a good win for us. We control our own destiny. We play Seattle twice, Utah and some of the other teams we're chasing. So obviously these are going to be huge games."

Antawn Jamison had 24 points and 11 rebounds to lead three Warriors with double-doubles, but Golden State dropped its 12th straight road game.

The Warriors have lost nine of their last 10 overall and have not won away from home since a 101-105 victory at Denver on December 22.

"We missed a few shots. We turned the ball over some and that is usually our demise," Golden State coach Brian Winters said. "We made some turnovers, again turnovers and they made eight threes to our three, and that is a big difference."

A dunk by Quentin Richardson gave Los Angeles a 35-38 lead with 9:49 left in the second quarter, but the Warriors went on a 13-2 run and took a four-point advantage on Adonal Foyle's reverse dunk.

The Clippers regained control with a quarter-ending 17-7 run, capped by Earl Boykins' running jumper that put them ahead, 54-48, with three seconds to go in the period.

"I think we had some defensive let-up," Foyle said. "We had some bad decisions."

Golden State closed within two points on five occasions, the last time at 80-78 as rookie Gilbert Arenas drained a 3-pointer with 11:04 left in the game. But Los Angeles answered with a 10-2 spurt, capped by Miles' turnaround jumper with 8:37 to go.

Miles, who had 12 points in the final quarter, took the life out of the Warriors when he threw down consecutive dunks to give the Clippers a 95-84 advantage with 6:29 remaining. Los Angeles coasted home and avenged a 110-108 overtime loss on November 3. Los Angeles has won 14 of the last 21 meetings in the series.

"It was on our mind that we blew a 16-point lead to these guys earlier this season," Brand said. "It's a game we let slip away."

Richardson finished with 17 points off the bench and Michael Olowokandi added 13 and 10 rebounds for the Clippers, who shot 50 percent (41-of-82), including 8-of-13 from 3-point range.

Reserve guard Bob Sura had 15 points and 10 assists, Arenas also scored 15 points and Foyle matched a season high with 14 points and grabbed nine rebounds for Golden State, which shot 48 percent (38-of-79). The Warriors outscored Los Angeles, 60-40, in the paint.
