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. 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.

Wes Morgan, Danny Simpson and Robert Huth (twice) have had the ball strike their arm in the Leicester penalty box in the past two months, without a spot-kick being awarded against them.At the other end, the Foxes have been awarded 10 penalties - the most in the Premier League and four more than any other side. In fact, Jamie Vardy alone (six) has been awarded more penalties than 18 Premier League teams.Former top-flight referee Dermot Gallagher analyses the weekends key decisions on Sky Sports News HQ every Monday morning.Here, he takes a closer look at some recent big calls in Leicesters Premier League fixtures and delivers his verdict on whether theyve had the rub of the green…MATCH: Sunderland 0-2 Leicester, April 10 Sunderlands DeAndre Yedlin challenges Leicesters Shinji Okazaki INCIDENT 1: Marc Albrighton plays a diagonal ball over the Sunderland defence which Shinji Okazaki races on to. As the ball sails over the defence, DeAndre Yedlin attempts to clear but misses the ball and catches Okazaki in the chest. Referee Anthony Taylor decides not to award Leicester a penalty.GALLAGHERS VERDICT: Incorrect decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: I think its a foul and a penalty. I dont think the referee realises what has happened. Yedlin had caught Okazaki in the chest and he is not near the ball. Anthony doesnt see it like that, but the penalty should have been given. INCIDENT 2: Sunderlands Patrick van Aanholt fires in a low cross which strikes Leicester defender Robert Huth on the arm as he slides in to make a challenge. The referee decides not to point to the spot.GALLAGHERS VERDICT: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: The cross strikes Huths hand not the other way around, so its definitely not a penalty. Huth cant cut his arm off, its there and he was just going to ground. His arms have to go somewhere and that is what you would call a natural position.MATCH: Leicester 1-0 Southampton, April 3 INCIDENT 1: Southamptons Sadio Mane is clean through on goal, rounds goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, but has a goal-bound shot blocked by Leicesters Danny Simpson. Handball was not given. GALLAGHERS VERDICT: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: It has to be intentional, and not be committed. It wouldve hit his chest. But I think the rule has got to be more prescriptive, it has got to be, This is handball or This isnt handball. INCIDENT 2: Southamptons Charlie Austin plays a low cross in the area which strikes Huth on the arm, but the referee gives Southampton a corner rather than a spot-kick.GALLAGHERS VERDICT: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: The ball has coome from a short distance and it has come at speed, theres no doubt about that.ddddddddddddCan he get his hand out the way? Im not convinced he can. INCIDENT 3: Wes Morgan rises above Jordy Clasie to head in Christian Fuchs cross to score, but the Leicester captain appeared to put his arm across the Dutchman while contending for the ball.GALLAGHERS VERDICT: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: Michael Oliver has a great view of it. He can see what force he puts into it. I dont think its a foul. INCIDENT 4: Very early on in the second half, Victor Wanyama miscontrols the ball, Jamie Vardy pounces on it and is dragged back with what appeared to be an arm across the face. A yellow card is given, but should it have been a red?GALLAGHERS VERDICT: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: Hes on his shoulder to start with. Its a pull-back and Michael has got that right. Hes very clever to realise the first touch is to take the ball away and not panicking and giving a red card.MATCH: Crystal Palace 0-1 Leicester, March 19 INCIDENT: A Leicester corner is taken and Scott Dann pulls Robert Huths shirt off in the penalty box. The referee gives nothing.GALLAGHERS VERDICT: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: The referee is too distant from the incident. He has so much to watch, hes looking through so many players he cant see that. MATCH: Leicester 2-2 West Brom, March 1 INCIDENT: With Leicester 1-0 down, Danny Drinkwater scores an equaliser but West Broms Stephane Sessegnon is booked after the goal for his reaction to a challenge by Foxes full-back Christian Fuchs in the build-up.GALLAGHERS VERDICT: Foul: Incorrect decision. Reaction: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: My first reaction when I saw it was no foul [by Fuchs]. When you see it again from a different angle, its definitely a foul. Its a yellow card at least, bordering on a red card. Hes [Sessegnon] berated the official too much. Mark Clattenburg has backed the assistant, and the assistant thinks it wasnt a foul.MATCH: Leicester 1-0 Norwich, February 27 INCIDENT: With this Premier League encounter finely poised, Cameron Jerome curls an effort at goal. The ball appears to hit Wes Morgan on the arm in the penalty area. Nothing is given.GALLAGHERS VERDICT: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: It cant be given. It is not deliberate, hes turned away and it has hit him. Also See: Typical Leicester? Foxes still have work to do Ranieri: Everything in our hands Carra on Leicesters title tilt ' ' '
