Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- A fast start by the Los Angeles Clippers kept the Golden State Warriors winless this season. Corey Maggette broke out of an early season shooting slump with 26 points and Bobby Simmons added 22 and the Clippers held on for a 94-86 victory over the Warriors. Los Angeles never trailed and led by as many as 23 points in the first half before surviving for its first road win of the season and its first 2-1 start since 1996. "There's a lot of things that we're doing well," Los Angeles coach Mike Dunleavy said. "We're not getting it all together yet we're still keeping ourselves in a pretty good position. Our guys have stayed with it and played hard and they've been tough with it." Maggette, who was 10-of-34 in his first two games, wasted little time getting hot in this one. He scored 13 points in the first quarter, including a jumper with one second left to give the Clippers a 31-15 lead. Maggette attributed his struggles in the first two games to a back problem. "I got these back spasms and I can't get the proper lift on my shot," Maggette said. "So I visited a (back specialist) and he helped me with my back, he did me wonders. I'm able to do things. I'm not going to have a bad shooting night every night, but I know the cause of it now and you have to take the good with the bad. "Sometimes it gets too bad and there's moments I have to sit out. I don't think I would have been able to play (without the treatment)." After Warriors guard Speedy Claxton made three free throws to cut the deficit to 82-78 with just under three minutes remaining, Maggette hit his only 3-pointer for a seven-point advantage. Simmons continued his up-and-down start for the Clippers. On Saturday he was up, hitting 8-of-11 shots. Simmons scored 30 points in Los Angeles' opener vs. Seattle on Wednesday before posting just four vs. Portland on Friday. In Simmons' two outstanding efforts, he has shot 21-of-26 and the Clippers have won both games. He was 1-of-6 in their loss. "Once they started falling for (myself and Maggette), it gave us an inside presence and then (Chris) Wilcox and Elton Brand got opportunities at the basket," Simmons said. "Once we started making shots from the outside, our inside presence would be seen." Wilcox and Brand combined for 27 points and 11 rebounds. Claxton scored 18 points and Troy Murphy added 17 before fouling out for Golden State, which has yet to shoot 40 percent in a game this season. The Warriors made just 31-of-88 shots, including 1-of-15 from 3-point range. "I wish I knew what was causing it because then we could do something to try and get us going in the right direction," Murphy said. "We're getting good open looks, we just need to step up there and knock them down." "I think defense wins games," Simmons said. "I think contested shots caused them to miss and I think that we played hard and gave them one shot at the basket and they don't have opportunities to make plays at the rim." Playing against his father, Mike Dunleavy Jr. was 2-of-12 and missed all five 3-pointers. The Warriors fell to 0-3 for the first time since 1999 and lost for the 11th time in their last 14 home games vs. Los Angeles. "We've lost three home games, yeah, I'm discouraged," Golden State coach Mike Montgomery said. "It's discouraging only from the standpoint that I recognize how hard it is to win and some of the things that we've got to do we have to do better. "Right now I think we have a little confidence problem and we have to get that up. We have to make shots, free throws, and guys have to have big games."
