(SportsNetwork. Cody Eakin Stars Jersey .com) - The Los Angeles Clippers hope to put Tuesdays season- opening loss to the Lakers behind them Thursday night when they host the Golden State Warriors. The Clippers, a trendy NBA championship pick by some after Doc Rivers left the Boston Celtics to become the head coach, lost to their fellow Staples Center tenants 116-103 in what was technically a road game. "The game just didnt look right to me throughout the game. I just didnt feel good about it. You could sense it," Rivers said on Wednesday. "I thought we came with the right intentions. We just didnt do them very well. I thought we broke down a lot. All of the things that weve worked on that we do in a drill and when the lights came on, we didnt do them." Rivers preached defense as a way for the Clippers, last seasons Pacific Division champs, to make a leap in the postseason. On Tuesday, the Lakers, without Kobe Bryant, scored 41 points in the fourth quarter, and shot 48 percent from behind the 3-point line. Blake Griffin led the Clippers against the Lakers with 19 points, but shot 3- for-10 from the foul line. Chris Paul, who re-signed with the Clips in the offseason, had a double-double with 15 points and 11 assists. DeAndre Jordan (17), Jamal Crawford (15) and J.J. Redick (13) all scored in double figures for L.A. The Warriors clobbered those same Lakers in their season debut Wednesday night at Oracle Arena. Golden State routed the Lakers 125-94 thanks to an awesome performance from Klay Thompson. The shooting guard was sensational with 38 points, including 27 at the half on 10-for-12 shooting. For the night, Thompson went 15-for-19 from the floor and 5-for-7 from the 3-point line. "After like my third three; I just knew I was getting open looks," said Thompson. "I was locked in before the game, too. Actually, I knew in the pre-game, I was hitting everything." David Lee, an All-Star last season, enjoyed a great game with 24 points, eight rebounds and five assists. The Warriors were up 33 points to start the fourth quarter, so Thompson was the only Golden State player to go more than 30 minutes. Steph Curry only had 10 points and Toney Douglas notched 13 off the bench. Andre Iguodalas Warriors debut was pedestrian with seven points, four rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block. "It was a lot of fun. This is my 10th one, you kind of get tired of opening night and the theatrics, youre just ready to go play." said Iguodala. "I think it was done well and it kind of gave us a boost of energy coming out. So weve got to let that energy carry us throughout the first month of the season, keep it going and just stay focused." The Warriors won three of the four meetings last season, but are 5-13 in the last 18 road matchups. Dallas Stars Hoodie .

NEW YORK -- The Knicks went coast to coast to let Carmelo Anthony know they want him to stay in New York. Team officials travelled to Los Angeles on Thursday night to meet with the free agent, a person with knowledge of the plans said. Team President Phil Jackson and general manager Steve Mills were expected to be part of the meeting but not Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because details of the meeting were to remain private. The meeting was first reported by ESPN. Anthony was in Los Angeles to meet with the Lakers, who are among the teams hoping to convince the All-Star forward to leave New York. Anthony already visited Chicago, Houston and Dallas this week. The Knicks can offer him the largest contract, nearly $130 million over five years, though Jackson has said he hopes Anthony will take less than a maximum deal. Mike Gartner Stars Jersey. Other teams can offer Anthony slightly less than $100 million in a four-year deal, according to NBA rules. Contracts cant be signed until July 10, so Anthony is under no rush to make a decision. But the Knicks apparently wanted to make sure they got to make a final pitch after his free agency tour. Jackson, Mills and new coach Derek Fisher had already met with Anthony last month in Los Angeles, where he informed them he would be terminating the final year of his contract and becoming a free agent. He has never said he wants to leave the Knicks, who acquired him from Denver in a February 2011 trade. But the 30-year-old forward also said his priority is contending for championships, and the Knicks were just 37-45 last season, the first time in Anthonys 11-year career that he missed the playoffs.
