CBSSports.com wire reports

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Anthony Morrow scored 15 of his 21 points in the first half and the Golden State Warriors beat the Los Angeles Clippers 108-101 on Sunday night in the preseason opener for both teams.

Kelenna Azubuike added 19 points and 10 rebounds and Corey Maggette had 18 for the Warriors. Stephen Jackson scored 11 and Anthony Rudolph added 10.

Stephen Curry, the Warriors' first round pick, made his debut in the second quarter, recording six assists. He finished with nine and was 2 of 9 from the field.

"Anybody who plays with Curry is going to be the beneficiary of open looks," Warriors coach Don Nelson said. "He sees the court so well. He doesn't look like it but he has quick hands and quick feet. He's going to be a special player someday."

DeAndre Jordan recorded a double-double with 22 points and 10 rebounds for the Clippers. He made all eight of his shots. Eric Gordon added 19 points and Chris Kaman had 13.

"I foresee improvement in all areas," Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "There should be more fluid play, especially with the veterans. I'm looking for the positive."

Ricky Davis, who finished with 12 points, hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to send the Clippers into the final period with a 79-78 edge.

Replacement officials working the game weren't challenged much, although at one point late in the third quarter, Clippers point guard Davis, who scored 11 points to go with five assists and seven rebounds, clearly yelled, "no way," and got into a prolonged discussion. The officials did appear to call more offensive fouls than usual.

Jackson earned a technical foul in the first quarter, though he was among the league leaders in technicals last year and served a one-game, mandatory suspension for going over the allowed limit.

The Warriors took a 59-53 lead at halftime courtesy of Morrow's running jump shot, which he banked in, at the buzzer.


Warriors F Brandan Wright will require surgery on his damaged left shoulder, which he injured during Friday's practice. ... The Clippers opened their preseason in Oakland for the first time in franchise history. ... Clippers F Blake Griffin, the first pick of the 2009 draft, sat out the game with a left knee bruise.
