An already turbulent weekend for the Los Angeles Clippers grew worse Sunday when the Golden State Warriors evened their tight Western Conference playoff matchup with a torrid shooting display.

Stephen Curry jumped out to a fast start in Game 4 of this first-round series and the Warriors shot 55 percent from the field in rolling to a 118-97 win.

Curry finished with 33 points, seven assists and seven rebounds, while Andre Iguodala netted 22 for the Warriors, who had dropped back-to-back games after stealing the opener in LA.

The series shifts back to Hollywood for Game 5 on Tuesday, and there is no word on whether Donald Sterling will be in attendance.

Sterling did not show up for Sunday's showdown amidst a controversial audio tape that surfaced with the Clippers' owner allegedly making racist remarks.

The team staged a silent boycott prior to tip-off by wearing their pregame shirts inside-out with the Clippers' logo not showing. The players also wore black arm or wrist bands and black socks in unison of the cause, but they appeared stuck in warmup mode when the game got underway.

Curry raced out with 17 points in the first 8:30, hitting all five of his 3- point attempts as the Warriors blew open a 20-point lead in the first quarter.

The Clippers pulled within nine in the fourth quarter but did not climb out of the mammoth hole. Jamal Crawford and Blake Griffin led the club with 26 and 21 points, respectively.
