OAKLAND, Calif. — Stephen Curry hit five 3-pointers and scored 20 points while matching his season best with 11 assists in the Golden State Warriors’ 126-91 rout of the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night.

Klay Thompson scored 26 points with five 3-pointers, and Draymond Green produced his third triple-double of the season with 11 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists. He also equaled his career best with five blocks.

The Cavaliers’ LeBron James had 20 points, shooting 6 of 18, with 8 rebounds.

Kevin Durant added 21 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 blocks for the Warriors in a much-hyped matchup after Golden State lost, 109-108, in Cleveland on Christmas Day.

The Warriors squandered a 3-1 advantage over the Cavs in the N.B.A. finals last year. Monday’s game represented the Cavs’ first trip to Oracle Arena since they captured the title there seven months ago.
