Curry paces Warriors past Spurs
Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - Stephen Curry was unstoppable as he led the Golden State Warriors to a 116-106 triumph over the San Antonio Spurs at Oracle Arena.
Curry finished with 35 points, eight rebounds and five assists for Golden State, which took over sole control of sixth place in the Western Conference standings. The Warriors hold a one-game lead over Houston as they get set to conclude their regular season at Portland on Wednesday. The Rockets own the tiebreaker.
Curry went 7-of-13 from beyond the arc in the contest. The Davidson product needs just two more makes from 3-point range to break Ray Allen's NBA record of 269 made 3-pointers set in the 2005-06 season.
Klay Thompson added 23 points for Golden State, which received a double-double of 12 points and 11 rebounds from David Lee. Festus Ezeli pulled down a career-best 13 boards to go along with three blocks.
Gary Neal paced San Antonio with 25 points. Patty Mills chipped in 23 points and Matt Bonner had 13. The Spurs, who are locked into the second seed in the Western Conference for the playoffs, were without Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard for the contest.
Golden State used a 19-0 run in the fourth quarter to create some separation on the scoreboard.
