The Warriors led the Clippers by 18 points after the first quarter on Wednesday night and cruised to a 115-98 victory.
Marreese Speights registered 15 points and nine rebounds in 16 minutes off the bench for Los Angeles.
After the game, the former Warrior was asked what the difference is between the two teams.
“First we need to start really just leaving the refs alone,” Speights told the Orange County Register. “Guys just got to sacrifice, do some other things than scoring, do some other things than your personal goals. Just try something new.
“They’ve been doing it here for four or five years and it hasn’t been working, so it’s time to try something new.”
Speights played for Golden State the prior three seasons and averaged 10.4 points per game during the Warriors' 2014-15 championship run.
He has been trying to tell his new teammates what they need to do to get to the Warriors' level.
“Tonight, they see it, they see everything I say. Everything I say in practice since I’ve been here, they see it. That’s how they (the Warriors) play...
"Move the ball really well, they get everybody involved, they play good team defense. And they capitalize off our mistakes. We turned the ball over a lot in the first quarter and they capitalized."
The Clippers were called for three technical fouls -- one apiece for Chris Paul, Doc Rivers and Blake Griffin -- and trailed by as many as 27 points.
The Warriors have now won seven straight games against their Pacific Division rivals and hold a 3.5 game lead over the Clippers for the top spot in the Western Conference.
The teams don't square off again until Jan. 28.
Speights also provided insight into what the scouting report is when you face the Clippers.
“It’s always been, especially with the Warriors, you play against the Clippers, you hit them a couple of times and their spirit is going to be down. That’s what happened, so we’ve just got to find a way to get over that hump.”
