OAKLAND, California - Boomers centre Andrew Bogut grabbed a monster 17 rebounds as Golden State crushed Western Conference rivals the Los Angeles Clippers 111-92 on Friday.

Bogut, whose season-high is 20 boards, also added 14 points and three blocks in a dominant display as the Warriors out-rebounded the Clippers, and their highly rated front court of All Star Blake Griffin and Deandre Jordan, 53 to 34 while outscoring them in the point 66 to 22.

Warriors' forward David Lee had 22 points and 11 rebounds and livewire guard Stephen Curry scored 22 points with seven assists.

Griffin finished with 27 points, Darren Collison scored 22 and Jordan grabbed 20 rebounds for Los Angeles, who had won four straight.

Elsewhere, Carmelo Anthony scored 29 points as the New York Knicks clobbered the Cleveland Cavaliers 117-86 at Madison Square Garden arena.

The Knicks won their fourth consecutive game and look like a different team than earlier in the season when they struggled to get off to good starts in games.
