OAKLAND, Calif. - Klay Thompson blocked a shot by Chris Paul with 1 second left then contested Jamal Crawford's 3-pointer that fell short at the final buzzer, and the Golden State Warriors held off the Los Angeles Clippers 105-103 in a game that featured a pair of ejections on Wednesday.

Paul's lay-in with 11.9 seconds left went around the rim and out, but Andre Iguodala missed a pair of free throws with 9.3 seconds remaining. That gave the Clippers the ball back with 8.3 seconds to go.

Stephen Curry overcame a slow start to score six of his 15 points over the final 3:01 as Golden State snapped the Pacific Division-leading Clippers' season-best five-game winning streak.

Blake Griffin was ejected for his second technical with 10:43 remaining after scuffling with Andrew Bogut, following Golden State's Draymond Green to the showers after they got into it at the end of the third. Green was tossed for a flagrant 2 foul.
