OAKLAND (AP) — Stephen Curry had 22 points and 11 assists, Klay Thompson scored 31 points and the Golden State Warriors beat the Boston Celtics 114-111 on Sunday night for their 19th consecutive home win.
Andrew Bogut added 13 points and 13 rebounds and Draymond Green had 14 points to help the Warriors to stay unbeaten in 14 games against the Eastern Conference this season. Golden State also improved its NBA-best record to 36-6.
The Warriors had won their previous four games by an average of 26.5 points and maintained a double-digit lead against the Celtics for most of the game.
Jared Sullinger had 26 points and nine rebounds for Boston. The Celtics have lost four of six.
Two nights after scoring an NBA-record 37 points in the third quarter of Golden State’s 126-101 win over Sacramento, Thompson was 11 for 19 from the field and 6 for 8 at the line. He had 18 points in the second half.
Curry helped the Warriors keep rolling with his 15th double-double this season.
The leading vote-getter for the All-Star game, Curry scored nine points in the third quarter and had two momentum-shifting plays. The diminutive point guard scored on a baseline dunk and did a pull-up on the rim, and then made a behind-the-back pass to Andre Iguodala for an easy layup.
Curry later scored on a driving layup with 2:24 left in the fourth and Thompson followed with a short jumper. Thompson also made a pair of free throws with 3.3 seconds remaining to help seal the win.
The Celtics trailed by as much as 10 in the second quarter but closed to 51-49 on back-to-back buckets by Tyler Zeller.
Curry sank two free throws with 7.8 seconds left, and then got three more a few moments later when he tried to beat the buzzer and was fouled by James Young near midcourt. Curry made all three to put the Warriors up 56-49 at the break.
