Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Lamar Odom did not play nearly as well as some of his Los Angeles Clippers' teammates, but he came up with the biggest shot. Odom hit a key 3-pointer as the Clippers held off the Golden State Warriors, 122-113, in a fight-marred contest. Elton Brand scored 26 points and tied a career high with 23 rebounds and Eric Piatkowski added a season-high 27 points for Los Angeles, which capped a 2-3 road trip and earned a split of the season series. "Elton goes about his job in a workmanlike fashion," Clippers coach Dennis Johnson said. "He doesn't look great doing it, but at the end of the day you're always gonna get numbers like that, and that's 26 and 23. He may get 26 and 12 or 26 and 17 in between there, but Elton plays." "We couldn't do anything with Elton Brand," said Warriors guard Gilbert Arenas, who scored 13 points on 3-of-15 shooting. "He was doing everything he can out there and we just had to stop everybody else and just try to contain him." Los Angeles outrebounded Golden State, 61-56, and had a 35-21 edge in second-chance points. "They are the No. 1 offensive rebounding team and so we really wanted to box out," Brand said. "And they're No. 2 in scoring, so we know that's how they get those putbacks and we wanted to box them out and get to the glass and run." The Clippers held a 103-90 advantage after a jumper and free throw by Keyon Dooling with 9:43 to play. But the Warriors stormed back, climbing within 115-113 on a 3-pointer by Jason Richardson with 2:05 remaining. But Odom, who made just three of his first 12 attempts, silenced the crowd at The Arena with his shot from just to the right of the top of the arc with 1:46 left. The basket seemed to demoralize the Warriors, who were blanked thereafter. "It was a big bucket at that time and the game had a minute left," Odom said. "I was getting to the hole fairly easy, but I wasn't able to finish. I wanted to make a play from the outside. I got my feet behind the line and just took the shot." The Clippers were leading, 81-65, when Sean Rooks and Warriors forward Troy Murphy got in each other's face after battling for a rebound with 6:26 left in the third quarter. Rooks put Murphy in a headlock before both players were separated and ejected. "Nothing dirty, just guys playing hard and it got a little out of hand, but I'm sure it was nothing blatant," Odom said. "They weren't after each other. Troy Murphy plays very very hard. He's a physical guy, Sean, too. We're down there banging. It got a little out of hand, but guys are going hard." The altercation fired up the Warriors, who got within 92-90 with 1:22 left before the Clippers scored the final seven points of the period and the first four of the fourth quarter. "The fight got us going a bit and really got the crowd into the game," Richardson said. "We didn't want to go down like that, we wanted to battle. So that definitely lit a fire under us." "I think we definitely played with more emotion after the incident in the third quarter," Warriors coach Eric Musselman added. "We shouldn't need something like that to get us fired up, but the team turned it up a notch after that." Richardson scored 29 points and Antawn Jamison had 26 for Golden State, which had won 10 of its previous 13 home games. "The guys played well, and even when the challenge came when the fight was out there and they start pushing themselves back and scoring points, they held up," Johnson said. "I didn't crack and our team didn't crack. There was plenty of times I could have called a timeout or the wrong timeout, but I have faith in our team and they know I do. And they played well." Los Angeles took the lead for good, 12-10, on a jumper by Andre Miller with 6:52 left in the opening quarter. The Clippers led by 33-28 after one period and opened a 68-58 halftime advantage. "I don't know why we came out as flat as we did," Jamison said. "You just have nights like that." "I think we'd come close and then we'd run out of gas 'cause we'd have to fight so hard to get back, and they'd go on a run and we'd go back up by 10 and then they'd come back," Richardson. "It was just a battle the whole game. We gotta learn to come out there and play from the start. "We can't have something like Murphy getting into it with Sean Rooks to set us on fire. We've got to be on fire from the gate, when the game starts."
