Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- After losing Corey Maggette early in the second half, the Los Angeles Clippers got a boost from a pair of unlikely sources. Quinton Ross scored a career-high 14 points and Rick Brunson added 12 off the bench as the Clippers posted a 98-87 victory over the Golden State Warriors. Maggette, who leads Los Angeles in scoring at 18.5 points per game, twisted his left ankle with 53 seconds remaining in the first quarter trying to defend a 3-pointer from Mickael Pietrus. He sat out the second quarter and left the game after playing only three minutes in the third. "With Corey going down with a sprained ankle and being quite shorthanded, we had great play from our bench," Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy Sr. said. "Quentin Ross was great, Rick Brunson was great, everybody came in and gave us a nice lift. After X-rays, Maggette was diagnosed with a mild sprain and is listed as day-to-day. "He tried to gut it out but I didn't think it was worth it, he could really hurt himself out there and I didn't want to risk any further injury," Dunleavy said. Ross and Brunson, who entered the contest averaging 5.7 points per game between them, made sure Los Angeles did not miss a beat. "It was great," said Clippers forward Bobby Simmons, who scored 17 points and had a career-high 12 rebounds. "That's what we're going to need as far as when someone else goes down we need guys to step up and fortunately those guys came in and did a great job for us tonight. Quentin Ross made a lot of great shots, a lot of open shots and Rick Brunson ran the floor for us." Ross hit 7-of-9 shots from the floor, playing largely in place of Maggette, who finished with 11 points. "We play hard," Ross said. "We try to play hard defensively, try to get stops and try to rebound the ball. We try to be in the right spots defensively on the floor and we forced them into some difficult shots." Brunson shined down the stretch, scoring all his points in the final period. He made 6-of-7 shots, handed out four assists and made a pair of steals in just 18 minutes. "I just thought tonight was a typical night on a back-to-back," Brunson said. "We had a lot of guys with little energy on the first team and I just thought the second unit came in and provided energy." "Rick is really solid and he can shoot the ball and he just did a great job of executing our stuff," Dunleavy said. "He was just terrific at running the offense too, orchestrating and delivering the ball." Elton Brand added 17 points as the Clippers moved above .500 after 13 games for the first time in eight seasons. Los Angeles has won 12 of its last 15 road games against Golden State. "We're really not trying to make a statement, we're just trying to do what's best for the Clippers and I think as a team we have to realize we're trying to win every game," Brunson said. "We're trying to win every game with confidence. It's too early to make statements, this isn't college football where you play 10 or 11 games, we've got 82 games." Speedy Claxton scored 22 points for the Warriors. He made 6-of-8 shots but his teammates made just 26-of-74 (35 percent). "It's getting a little frustrating, nobody likes losing," Claxton said. "This is an important game for us, we could've picked up some ground. We played these guys earlier in the year and we let them kind of hand it to us and it was the same kind of way tonight. We've just got to find some kind of way to buckle down." Golden State also struggled from 3-point range making just 4-of-18 shots (22 percent), including the starters going 0-for-9. "We've got to quit settling for 3-point shots," Warriors coach Mike Montgomery said. "We've got to run offensively, more disciplined and not settle for the first open look we get. We're shooting the ball as if that's going to be our savior. We don't have a low-post game but we've got to establish some kind of presence in the paint so we can work off of it."
