After three quarter, the Warriors (4-0) were shooting 66.1 percent overall, 68.4 (13 of 19) from beyond the arc. Some of that was pure deadly shooting, some of it was too many open looks. Golden State eventually shot 58.1 percent from the field, 60 percent (15 of 25) from 3-point range.The Clippers didn’t shoot badly, making 46.3 percent of their shots, 36.8 percent (7 of 19) from beyond the arc. They got 24 points from Jamal Crawford, 17 from DeAndre Jordan, 15 from Chris Paul, 14 from Blake Griffin and 12 from J.J. Redick.But the Warriors (4-0) did whatever they wanted on offense during the first three quarters. Steph Curry led them with 28 points, Draymond Green had 24, Klay Thompson 19 and Leandro Barbosa 13. Bogut led Golden State with 14 rebounds, Jordan had 13 for the Clippers.Afterward, coach Doc Rivers was about as peeved as he could be. He said the Warriors were looking hard at this game because they were “angry” about the aforementioned playoff loss.“They ran to the game, we ran away from it,” Rivers said. Backup post Spencer Hawes agreed.“They dictated pretty much everything, every facet of it from the beginning,” Hawes said. “Played at their tempo, defensively disrupted what we wanted to do and got whatever they wanted offensively, so I’d say his assessment was pretty fair.”The Clippers (3-2) played their fifth game in seven nights to start the season. Rivers said he didn’t mind admitting his team may have been tired, but he said that doesn’t account for its lack of heart.“They played tougher, they executed better, I think they pretty much won every facet of the game tonight,” Crawford said.When it was noted to Chris Paul that his team was out-toughed, he shouldered the blame.“Man, that’s a great question,” said Paul when asked why his team is having trouble matching others’ intensity. “As a point guard and one of the leaders of this team, that’s something I’ve got to figure out.”The Clippers were outrebounded 39-30. Griffin, who is 6-foot-10 and powerfully built, had one measly rebound for the Clippers.Rivers also noted that his team committed one foul in all of the first half, and used the term “soft” to describe that statistic.Indeed, this has become a hotly contested rivalry. Whereas the Clippers lacked toughness, the Warriors had more than enough.“Absolutely, we have to attack, we have to stay in attack mode and continue to move the basketball like we have been doing, and attack,” said Green, who, by using that word “attack” three times, summed up what his team did to the Clippers all night long.First-year Warriors coach Steve Kerr liked what he saw.“It was very intense,” he said. “Right from the beginning our guys were ready.

After all, the Clippers barely beat the Warriors in a hotly contested seven-game first-round playoff series last season, and they didn’t have injured post Andrew Bogut for even one game.Of course, the Donald Sterling saga happened right in the middle of that series, so it wouldn’t be unfair to say the Clippers were having difficulty keeping their minds on the task at hand, even though they never used that as an excuse.Still, Golden State played like a pack of hungry wolves on Wednesday night in the first matchup of this new season. The Clippers were its prey. When it was over, the Warriors had rolled up as much as a 29-point lead in the third quarter on their way to a 121-104 victory over the Clippers before a very loud and appreciative crowd of 19,596 at Oracle Arena.The Warriors in the first half shot 67.5 percent overall, 69.2 percent (9 of 13) from 3-point range. They led by 23 points at that point, the Clippers could not recover.
