    LOS ANGELES -- When Blake Griffin soared past Stephen Curry and hammered home his one-handed rebound of Danny Grangers missed jumper, the slam emphasized everything thats so impressive about the Los Angeles Clippers nine-game winning streak. Royce Freeman Jersey . The Clippers are on this roll against good teams, at a perfect time for their playoff preparations -- and just like Griffins mind-blowing dunk, theyre doing it with style. Griffin had 30 points and 15 rebounds, Granger added 18 points off the bench, and the Clippers surged past the Golden State Warriors 111-98 Wednesday night. Chris Paul had 16 points, 12 assists and eight rebounds for the Clippers, who split their four-game season series against their Pacific Division rivals with an impressive finish to a tight game. "This is the time of year when you want to be playing your best," Griffin said. "Our fight has been great. Whoever is on the court ... up 10 or down 10, I think weve come to a point where it doesnt really matter. We stick together and try to pull it out." Griffin was in top form on both ends of the court, punctuating his latest monster performance with that rebound slam with 8:18 to play. The four-time All-Star has scored 20 points in 24 consecutive games, the second-longest streak in the NBA this season. Los Angeles has the third-longest winning streak in club history and the teams best record after 66 games (46-20), but the Clippers dont seem satisfied by their five-game lead over Golden State in the division standings. "Its impressive, because for the most part, weve been playing good teams," Granger said after his fifth game with the Clippers. "You really want to peak at this time going into the playoffs, because if a team is hitting on all cylinders, you look up and youre in the finals." Klay Thompson scored 26 points and David Lee had 20 for the Warriors, whose five-game winning streak ended with their fourth straight loss to the Clippers at Staples Center. Curry had just 13 points and 11 assists before sitting out the final minutes. Golden State got an impressive game from Thompson, but its normally reliable bench went 3 for 25, struggling mightily for most of the second half. "Weve been playing great basketball against some good teams, and we thought we could come in here and play very well and get a win," Curry said. "It didnt turn out that way, but one loss isnt going to stop us. Were going to continue that momentum, that rhythm." Los Angeles held Golden State to just one field goal in a 9:40 stretch spanning the final two quarters. The Warriors stayed in it with defence and free throws, but Darren Collison scored six quick points down the stretch in the fourth quarter, and Matt Barnes 3-pointer with 1:25 to play essentially sealed the win. The California clubs completed their series with another demonstration of the reasons they might have the West Coasts best current rivalry, although both teams agree they need playoff stakes to develop true enmity. "All four games this year have been very competitive games," Lee said. "Both teams took care of their homecourt. I think were two pretty evenly matched teams that have big plans for the post-season, so we look forward to seeing what happens the rest of the season. These last three games weve played felt like playoff-style games." Granger kept the Clippers in it during a rocky first-half stretch, making his first six shots without a miss in about 11 minutes. Los Angeles rolled off a 15-3 run to close the third quarter with an 84-79 lead, scoring nine straight points capped by Pauls 3-pointer on a crosscourt assist from Griffin with 0.1 seconds left. NOTES: Paul missed eight of his first nine shots and struggled all night under tight defence from Thompson. Paul went back out on the Staples Center court after the game with an assistant coach to work on his shot after his 5-for-15 effort. ... Clippers G Jamal Crawford sat out for the fifth time in six games with a strained left calf. Jared Dudley returned from a three-game absence with back spasms, but played just one minute. ... Griffin grabbed his 3,000th career rebound late in the first half. He is the third player in NBA history to have 6,000 points, 3,000 boards and 1,000 assists in his first four full NBA seasons while also making 50 per cent of his shots, joining Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Charles Barkley. DaeSean Hamilton Jersey . -- Kansas City Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer will be out three to six weeks with a stress fracture of the third finger of his right hand. Tramaine Brock Jersey . The Nashville Predators were glad their captain was still on their side. Weber had a goal and two assists, and Roman Josi scored the shootout winner to lift the Predators to a 4-3 win over the Flyers on Thursday night.Louis van Gaal has not given up on qualifying for the Champions League despite conceding Manchester United missed an opportunity in Tuesdays defeat at West Ham. Manchester United were 14 minutes away from crashing West Hams Boleyn Ground farewell after Anthony Martials double set them on course for a victory that would have seen them leapfrog Manchester City into fourth position.But the Hammers staged a late, stirring comeback on their final outing at their historic ground to seal a 3-2 win, leaving Man Uniteds top-four hopes out of their hands heading into their final-day fixture against Bournemouth. Manchester Uniteds French striker Anthony Martial scored twice It is the same story, we dont have it in our hands but it is still possible, we can still catch Manchester City because they have to beat Swansea and thats not so easy for them, Van Gaal told Sky Sports.Bournemouth (on Sunday) is also not easy because we have to cope with this big disappointment. When you are 1-0 behind and you change it to 2-1 and then lose again its a mental blow. Slaven Bilic said that West Ham were under pressure to win their final game at the Boleyn Ground Of course this is a missed opportunity, you could imagine how thrilled the players and fans and the coach also would have been in this situation. We have to cope with it and at the end we lost 3-2 so we have missed an opportunity.Defeat in East London means Van Gaals side will miss out on qualification for Europes elite-club competition if their cross-city rivals win at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday.Manchester United, whose team ccoach was attacked en route to the stadium, struggled to cope with a rampant Hammers outfit on an emotionally-charged night. Josey Jewell Broncos Jersey. But Van Gaal refused to attribute his sides defeat to the ugly scenes pre-match, and instead highlighted their inability to deal with West Hams aerial threat from set-pieces or retain possession. Manchester United let a 2-1 lead slip We gave set-plays away which they could score from and we had difficulties with set plays, he added.We knew that in advance and, despite being 2-1 ahead, we couldnt managed that. We gave too many fouls away near the 60 meters and that was our problem.It is always difficult, they are good at set plays, the statistics show that and we are small. You have to organise that but still you dont have the centimetres and thats the problem. Manchester Uniteds team coach was attacked as it neared the ground When you are 2-1 you have to keep the ball better than we did. You can look at the set plays but I think we have to keep the ball better.West Hams players did everything to win and you could see that from the first minute. It was a special game and we had to cope with that, we are professional and we have to cope with all of these factors.They were lucky also, when you see how the goals come you have to say they were two set plays and all the threat was only through the set plays.
