OAKLAND - The Clippers seemed weighed down Sunday afternoon in Game 4 by all the controversy that has engulfed them. And even though it was not of their own making, but that of owner Donald Sterling, the Clippers were in the storm and tried to stay afloat. But they could not avoid their albatross and a hot Golden State team, dropping a 118-97 decision to the Warriors at Oracle Arena. BOX SCORE: Golden State Warriors 118, Clippers 97 Instead of talking about the best-of-seven first-round series being tied at 2-2 or about regaining home-court advantage with their Game 3 win, the Clippers had to talk about Sterling's alleged racist comments about African Americans.

Most NBA players still get excited to play in Madison Square Garden. Golden State's Stephen Curry channeled that extra energy into a NBA season-high 54-point performance Wednesday night. Curry was 18 of 28 from the field and finished one shy of the NBA record with 11 three-pointers made in 13 attempts. Unfortunately for him, the Warriors lost to the New York Knicks, 109-105. Playing all 48 minutes, Curry finished with seven assists and six rebounds while passing his previous career best of 42 points, and eclipsing Kevin Durant's 52-point performance that had been the best in the NBA this season.

For all the Donald Sterling issues surrounding the team, the Clippers still have a critical game to play Sunday -- and several gambling sites have them as slight, two-point favorites in Game 4 of their playoff series against the Golden State Warriors. The Clippers squeaked out a 98-96 win in Oakland on Thursday to take a 2-1 lead in the series against the Warriors. But the Clippers have lost 15 of 18 games against the Warriors in the Bay Area. BetUS.com expects a big game from Blake Griffin, with his over-and-under in combined points scored and rebounds at 36 in Game 4. The gaming site also expects a big contribution from Stephen Curry, setting his points scored over-and-under at 23-1/2 for the Warriors' All-Star point guard.

Lakers 118 - Warriors 116 (end of regulation) The Lakers may have won their most important game of the season, but in the process lost Kobe Bryant to a variety of painful-looking leg injuries. After hurting his knee in the third quarter, Bryant left the game for good with 3:08 with a foot/leg injury. Carl Landry missed a wide open jumper and Stephen Curry's three-quarter-court heave just barely missed at the buzzer and the Lakers escaped with a 118-116 victory over the Golden State Warriors.

OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER AT GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS 7:30 p.m. Thursday. TV: TNT. Details: These were thought to be teams passing in the night, and the Western Conference standings, before Russell Westbrook's early return restored the Thunder's elite status. Now it's the Warriors who have injury concerns after Stephen Curry's bruised left ankle forced him to sit out a game against San Antonio. Golden State is clearly not the same offensive force without its star point guard who is averaging 18.6 points and 9.2 assists.

Lakers guard Kobe Bryant was elected by fans to his 16th All-Star game, second-most in NBA history, and Clippers forward Blake Griffin was also named Thursday as a starter for the Western Conference. But it was somewhat of a surprise that Clippers point guard Chris Paul, a six-time All Star, wasn't voted in as a starter for the West team. He was beaten out by Stephen Curry, the Golden State Warriors' sharpshooting guard, who received 1,047,281 votes to make his first All-Star team, and Bryant, who received 988,884 votes.

Blame it on missed shots. Blame it on it being a game the Clippers didn't have to win. Or blame it on the Donald Sterling distraction. But wherever you place the blame, the realization is this first-round playoff is now a best-of-three series. The Golden State Warriors pretty easily dominated the Clippers, 118-97, at Oracle Arena in Oakland on Sunday afternoon. The best-of-seven series is now tied, 2-2. Game 5 will be Tuesday night at Staples Center. If the series goes to a deciding seventh game it will be Saturday at Staples.

OAKLAND - Doc Rivers sounded as if he has been forced to contemplate his future as coach of the Clippers. With so many NBA players around the league saying they wouldn't play for controversial Clippers owner Donald Sterling in the wake of racist comments he allegedly made, Rivers was asked if he needed to hear something from someone within the organization in order for him to continue working for Sterling. "Don't know yet," Rivers responded. "I'm just going to leave it at that.

Here are five takeaways from the Clippers' breathless 98-96 victory over the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series Thursday night at Oracle Arena. The win gave the Clippers a 2-1 lead in the series: 1. Blake Griffin is on track to be the most valuable player of this series. The Clippers forward has 83 points in 91 minutes, even taking into account his Game 1 clunker in which he fouled out in only 19 minutes of play. He is powerful, efficient and has turned his one perceived weakness -- jump shooting -- into a strength, repeatedly making big baskets to curb the Warriors' furious comeback in Game 3. Griffin's 32-point effort -- on 15-of-25 shooting, no less -- made him the first Clipper to score 30 or more points in consecutive playoff games since Elton Brand did so in four consecutive games during the 2006 playoffs.

That time came Thursday night for the Clippers in Game 3 of the Western Conference first-round playoff series against the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena. The Clippers made that stand behind another monster game from Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan's strong all-round effort and a tremendous three-point defensive performance that pushed them to a thrilling 98-96 victory over the Warriors.

OAKLAND - Golden State's shots kept bouncing off the rim. Some nicked the front, others clanged off the side and still others caromed high off the back. It only seemed as though DeAndre Jordan was there to grab every rebound. The Clippers center repeatedly extended his massive hands to seize the ball, doing it for the final time with 1.2 seconds left Thursday night at Oracle Arena when he grasped Stephen Curry's airballed three-pointer, flung a pass to teammate Chris Paul and raised his arm in triumph.
