Jermaine O'Neal turned back the clock with 23 points and 13 rebounds, Draymond Green added 18 and 10 and the Golden State Warriors topped the Brooklyn Nets, 93-86, on Saturday night.

David Lee (flu) and Andrew Bogut (back) both sat this one out, but O'Neal was up to the challenge, going 10-of-13 from the floor on a variety of dunks and cuts to the rim.

The Warriors outscored the Nets 52-38 in the paint and outrebounded them 50-39, grabbing 12 offensive boards.

Stephen Curry was relatively quiet in this one, scoring 17 points, but he banked in a huge three with 37 seconds left to put Golden State up by five.

Deron Williams led the Nets with 20, but other than him, Brooklyn's offense was anemic.

The Nets shot 41 percent from the floor and went a paltry 2-of-20 from beyond the arc, missing their first 11 attempts from distance.

The Warriors weren't much better offensively, shooting 43.5 percent, but they managed to hit six triples in 20 tries. Plus, they tallied 26 assists to only 11 for Brooklyn.

Golden State also took great care of the basketball, turning it over 10 times. The Nets coughed up the rock 16 times on the evening.

Shaun Livingston left this game early, as he took a nasty fall in the first quarter and bruised his tailbone.

With the win, the Warriors salvaged a season split with Brooklyn.
