Curry scores 38 as the Warriors pick up easy win against the Clippers

Oakland, USA, Apr 13 (efe-epa).- Two-time reigning champions Golden State Warriors were led once again by star point guard Stephen Curry, who scored 38 points in the opening game of the Western Conference first-round series playoff to take his team to a 121-104 win against the Los Angeles Clippers at the Oracle Arena on Saturday.

Curry also captured a career-high 15 rebounds - 12 of them defensive - handed out seven assists and shot 11-of-16 from the field, including 8-of-12 from three-point range, to which the Clippers' defense had no response.

The Warriors' All-Star point guard, who has been named the Most Valuable Player twice, outscored Ray Allen (385) for the most three-pointers in NBA playoff history with 386.

Guard Kevin Durant was also outstanding with 23 points, four rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one steal before being sent off with 4:41 minutes left in the game.

Forward Draymond Green once again played a decisive role for the Warriors with 17 points and seven rebounds and seven assists but also lost the ball six times.

Reigning champions the Warriors shot 50 percent from the field (45-91) and 47 percent from the three-point range (14-30).

They also dominated the paint with 53 rebounds against 40 by the Clippers, who had better control of the ball and lost it 17 times as opposed to the 21 times the defending champions did.

Reserve center Montrezl Harrell put up 26 points and five rebounds to lead the list of four Clippers players with double-digit scores.

Another reserve, guard Lou Williams, was the second-highest scorer for the Clippers with 25 points and nine assists.

Meanwhile, rookie point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander managed 18 points and five rebounds in his playoff debut.

Veteran forward Danilo Gallinari scored 15 points and had eight rebounds while recovering three balls, but failed to prevent his team's defeat.

The win allowed the Warriors to go up 1-0 in the best-of-seven series. Game two will be played on Monday at the same venue in Oakland.
