LOS ANGELES (AP) Stephen Curry snaked through the paint, came out near his bench, dribbled behind his back and faked Chris Paul to the floor on a jumper from the left corner, drawing oohs from the crowd.

That was just the first of several moves the Golden State Warriors put on the Los Angeles Clippers in rallying for their 10th straight victory, 110-106 Tuesday night. Curry finished with 27 points and Klay Thompson added 25.

"I knew he was trailing and I thought I could make a move toward the basket and get some creativity in between," Curry said. "As soon as I saw him kind of go down, I knew I had to shoot it and just see what happened. You kind of get a little adrenaline rush because those are kind of cool moments. Thankfully, the shot went in. I didn't see the bench's reaction, but they said everybody was going crazy."
