The Golden State Warriors rallied to a 50-point third quarter as they beat the LA Clippers for the tenth time in a row.

Steph Curry and Kevin Durant dropped 35 points between them as last season's runners-up turned around a 61-49 half time deficit.

Speaking afterwards, Clippers' coach Doc Rivers said: "Well, we stopped playing. I thought the game plan was great. I thought we played with energy defensively. They scored 50 points in the third quarter and I was more upset with our offense."

In the end, Curry scored 35 points of his team's total as the Warriors improved their record to 47-9. The Clippers fall to 35-21.

Golden State host the Brooklyn Nets next while the Clippers welcome the San Antonio Spurs.
