OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Stephen Curry scored 20 of his 31 points in the third quarter and the Golden State Warriors ran their NBA-record streak of regular season games without consecutive losses to 106 by beating the Phoenix Suns 138-109 on Saturday night.
“It’s an incredible mark of consistency,” said coach Steve Kerr, who spoke in depth before the game about his admission to using marijuana for chronic back pain .
Curry hit five 3-pointers and Klay Thompson added 26 points and a season-high six 3s. Kevin Durant had 20 points and eight assists and Draymond Green a season-best 13 assists to go with nine points for Golden State, which hasn’t lost back-to-back games during the regular season since April 2015 to San Antonio and New Orleans during its championship season.
The Warriors beat Phoenix for the 10th straight time, the longest winning streak by either team in the series, and 11th in a row at home.
