Recap: LA Clippers vs. Golden State

Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The healing process for the Los Angeles Clippers began with an emphatic victory.

DeAndre Jordan had 25 points and 18 rebounds and the Clippers defeated the Golden State Warriors, 113-103, in Game 5 of their Western Conference first- round series.

Blake Griffin tallied 18 points and seven rebounds for Los Angeles, which took a 3-2 series edge with Game 6 set for Thursday in Oakland.

Earlier Tuesday, NBA commissioner Adam Silver banned owner Donald Sterling for life from the league and fined him $2.5 million for his racially charged comments that were taped by his girlfriend and sent to media outlets.

Clippers players held a silent protest prior to their 118-97 Game 4 playoff loss to Golden State on Sunday, while a number of team sponsors have either terminated their deals or put their partnership on hold. Golden State head coach Mark Jackson also suggested that fans not show up to the playoff games in Los Angeles as a protest and others would like to see Sterling forced to sell the team.
