Corey Maggette scored 20 points and Cuttino Mobley had 15 for the Clippers, who were playing their first game since a loss Monday night to San Antonio. The Clippers had won the previous two meetings and nine of 11 against Golden State. Jason Richardson was held to eight points and played only 17 minutes because of foul trouble for the Warriors, who got enough balance from the rest of their roster for a key win. Stephen Jackson had 16 points and six assists, and Al Harrington had 12 points and six rebounds. OAKLAND – Baron Davis had 25 points, seven rebounds and three assists, and the Golden State Warriors gained valuable ground on the Clippers in the playoff chase with a 99-89 victory Friday night. Reserve Matt Barnes had 16 points and eight rebounds as the Warriors withstood a late Clippers rally to pull within 1 games in the run for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference with their first three-game winning streak since November. Golden State hasn’t been to the playoffs since 1994, the league’s longest drought. The Clippers lost for the third time in four games following a three-game winning streak. The Clippers are home against Detroit on Sunday before playing at San Antonio, Houston and Charlotte in a four-day span next week.
