Curry sparks Golden State


Stephen Curry had career highs of 16 assists and 13 rebounds to go with 14 points and the Golden State Warriors beat the Phoenix Suns 115-86 Friday night to win their fourth straight game and match their longest winning streak of the season.

Klay Thompson scored 21 points for the Warriors, David Lee added 17 points and Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green had 11 apiece.

P.J. Tucker had 11 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Suns, who had won three straight and eight of their previous nine.

Curry, who played one minute of the fourth quarter, had a rough shooting night and made just one of six 3-point attempts. He more than made up for it with his passing and rebounding for his third career triple-double.

Phoenix missed its final six shots of the first half, allowing Golden State to open a 59-40 advantage heading into the intermission.

Lee, who added seven rebounds, had his consecutive double-double streak end at 10 games. Andrew Bogut was held to six rebounds, ending his career-best streak of 10-plus rebounds at 10 games.

The Warriors, who have been involved in a league-leading 12 games decided by four points or less, finished with their largest margin of victory since a 31-point win over the Los Angeles Lakers in the season opener.
