Clippers own Game 2 with 138-98 victory over Warriors

By Alejandro Freixes, CCNN Head Writer

The Los Angeles Clippers lit up the Staples Center on Monday night, with a mega 138-98 win over the Golden State Warriors in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series. Blake Griffin did his usual MVP-style basketball wizardry, landing 35 points in just 29 minutes, with 13 of 17 shots finding their mark. Oh, and he made 9 of 10 free throws. Chris Paul also helped the Clippers recover from their playoff opener loss, rocking 12 points and 10 assists.  Whereas Griffin and Paul fouled big time in Game 1, it was the Warriors who committed them this time. Stephen Curry, who made 20 of his 24 points, played with four fouls, as did Klay Thompson, who finished with 7 points. As Game 3 approaches on Thursday at Oakland, will the Warriors recover their mojo?
