       === Thompson's big third quarter carries Warriors over Pistons ===
 
 Auburn  Hills,  MI (Sports Network)  - Klay Thompson  poured in a game-high 27
 points,  including  19  in  the  third  quarter,  and  Stephen  Curry  had  22
 points  and 10  assists to  lead the  Golden State  Warriors to  a 104-97  win
 over the Detroit Pistons.
 
 David  Lee had 20 points and 11 rebounds and Harrison Barnes had 10 points for
 the Warriors, winners of four of their last five.
 
 "We moved the basketball, we made plays and we were aggressive," Warriors
 coach Mark Jackson said. "We were unselfish, and we got high-percentage
 shots."
 
 Tayshaun Prince had 24 points and Andre Drummond scored 15 to go along with 12
 boards for the Pistons, losers in three of their last four.
 
 Rodney Stuckey had 17 points and nine assists in the setback.
 
 "We know that Golden State has a lot of great shooters on their team. We know
 that if you leave them open, even for a split-second, they'll knock down the
 shot," Drummond said.
 
 Golden  State led  by as many as 20  points in the fourth quarter, but an 18-4
 Detroit  run capped off by back-to-back 3-pointers from Charlie Villanueva and
 Prince pulled the Pistons within 98-95 with 1:08 left.
 
 Following  a  pair of made  free throws from  Golden State's Jarrett Jack, the
 Pistons turned it over and were forced to foul Curry, who sank a pair from the
 line  to put the Warriors up by seven. Brandon Knight's deep 3-ball rimmed out
 for Detroit, but Drummond grabbed the rebound  and was fouled after making the
 putback that cut the lead to 102-97.
 
 Drummond missed the free throw, but Villanueva grabbed the board and kicked it
 out to Knight, who missed a pair of 3-point attempts. Thompson finally grabbed
 the rebound for Golden State, and converted a pair from the charity stripe for
 the seven-point spread.
 
 Stuckey  then  missed a try  from 3-point range  and the Warriors dribbled the
 remaining seconds off the clock.
 
 Golden  State led 21-20  after the first 12 minutes and took a 40-38 lead into
 the  break.  The Warriors  went just  1-for-9 from 3-point  range in the first
 half, but caused 11 Pistons' turnovers leading to eight points.
 
 Golden  State  opened up  a 79-61  lead after outscoring  Detroit 39-23 in the
 third quarter. Thompson poured in 19 points in the period and Curry chipped in
 with  10. As a  team Golden State shot 61.9 percent from the floor and went 7-
 for-10 from long range during the frame.
 
                                   Game Notes
 
 The  Warriors  have scored 100 points  in all but  three of their 11 wins this
 season  ... Thompson  made a career-high five 3-pointers ... The Pistons had a
 five-game  home winning  streak snapped ... Detroit has dropped its last three
 games with the Warriors.
