Stephen Curry goes ballistic, Warriors score 50 in 3rd quarter

Chris Paul

Both Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry were on fire from beyond the arc.

They came out of the All-Star Break goofing around, collectively mailing in the first half. Check full confirmed lineup of Golden State Warriors vs Clippers below.

The Warriors forced five LA turnovers in the quarter, off which they scored 11 points. Los Angeles flipped a switch in the 2nd quarter and turned the tide in their favor.

Los Angeles will have star guard Chris Paul back in the line-up for the first time since January 16 following surgery to fix a torn ligament in his left thumb. The exclamation point came when, with the clock winding down, Curry crossed over his defender and hit a deep three-pointer over the outstretched arms of two L.A. players. Los Angeles had its four-game winning streak snapped. Not to mention Blake Griffin and Deandre Jordan who wreaked havoc on the Dubs inside the paint. "If Chris says he's not comfortable, I'm not going to play him because we're playing Golden State". Austin attacked the basket and was lights out from distance.

Then reality set in, the Warriors yanked that football away, and the Clippers found themselves in the same position they've been in time and again: on the ground and embarrassed, wondering how they found themselves here once again. Kevin Durant began the charge as he was almost unstoppable out of halftime.

With the front office leaning more and more on the young core, it's time for the veterans to get sent somewhere else. And as they worked to finish that deal, they made a trade, sending Lou Williams to the Houston Rockets .

By that point, Curry and Durant had started to wear down the Clippers. Then came the Curry flurry.

Once Golden State predictably started the third quarter strong, it got the final motivation it needed from the referees.

He also saw his string of 29 made free throws snapped when he missed his first attempt from the line at 3:25 of the second quarter.

The Clippers barely stayed afloat in Paul's absence going 6-7 in 13 games.

James scored 18 points, pulled down 13 rebounds and handed out 15 assists for the 48th regular-season triple-double of his career.

New York's Courtney Lee led all scorers with 25 points.
