National Basketball Association games Saturday, scores, highlights: Stephen Curry's 45 lead Warriors past Clips

Blake Griffin can not catch a break sometimes, it seems. Just ask the Los Angeles Clippers, which took on the Golden State Warriors on Saturday under some rather unfortunate circumstances due to an injury suffered by Blake Griffin.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Clippers have been in great form themselves as they've won six of their last eight games but they will be looking to bounce back after losing to the Thunder in a 127-117 loss on Thursday. Stephen Curry has been back for three games, but now Kevin Durant will miss his second straight with a calf strain.

Griffin fell to the ground after catching an elbow to the head from Warriors center JaVale McGee during the first quarter of Saturday's 121-105 loss to the reigning National Basketball Association champions.

He eventually walked off the court under his own power and was escorted to the locker room.

Serb Novak Djokovic , a six-time Australian Open champion, may also miss out with an elbow injury. There is no word yet on when she will be, but Miami in March may be a good bet.

Curry, on fire since returning from an 11-game injury absence, connected on 8 of his 16 3-point attempts, made a career-high 15 of his 16 free-throws, pulled down 6 rebounds and handed out 3 assists while sitting out the entire fourth quarter.

Griffin is averaging 23.6 points, 7.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists this season.

"When you see Blake's hand (shaking), you know it's bad", Rivers said.
