LOS ANGELES. The Clippers finished nine games ahead of second-place Golden State last season to win the franchise’s first division championship. That margin would have been larger had the Warriors not beaten them three times.

The teams renewed their intense rivalry Thursday night as Chris Paul scored 42 points and had three of his 15 assists on consecutive dunks by Blake Griffin during a 30-second span of the third quarter, helping lead Los Angeles to a 126-115 victory in the Clippers’ home opener.
