Thornton's big game lifts Clippers over Warriors

CBSSports.com wire reports

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Al Thornton made his first eight shots, and scored 18 of his 24 points in the second quarter to help the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Golden State Warriors 99-89 in an NBA preseason game Sunday night.

Corey Maggette added 18 points and 14 rebounds, Ruben Patterson had 19 points and 11 rebounds, and Sam Cassell had 11 points in the Clippers' first win in three games.

Al Harrington scored 17 points to lead the Warriors, who lost for the first time in three games. Baron Davis added 14 points, and Troy Hudson had 15.

Thornton, the Clippers' first-round draft pick, played sparingly after playing more than 30 minutes in each of the first two games. He combined with Patterson to score 26 of the Clippers' 36 second-quarter points. They were 12-of-15 over that span while the rest of the team was 3-of-7.

Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy drew a technical foul in the game's first four minutes, and center Chris Kaman was whistled for one late in the second quarter.

The Warriors shot 31 percent in the first half, including a 4-of-19 effort in the first quarter, while Los Angeles was 20-of-37 for 54 percent.
