Warriors head coach Mark Jackson says Patrick Ewing would need to come out of retirement for center Andris Biedrins to lose his starting job.

What do you know? It happened.

Or, at least Ekpe Udoh masqueraded as the Hall of Fame center in his first start of the season.

Udoh played his usual rim-protecting defense and impersonated Ewing with 19 points on 9-for-14 shooting. His career scoring night led the Warriors to a 104-97 victory over the Pacific Division-leading Clippers on Monday evening in front of Oracle Arena's eighth sellout of the season.
