Curry, Thompson Lead Warriors Past Rockets
HOUSTON (AP) — Stephen Curry scored 29 points, Klay Thompson had 26 with six 3-pointers, and Golden State stayed ahead of Houston in the Western Conference standings with a 108-78 win over the Rockets on Sunday night.
James Harden and Jeremy Lin scored 21 points apiece for the Rockets, who now trail Golden State by 1½ games for the No. 6 seed in the West.
Golden State snapped a five-game losing streak to the Rockets and got some payback for a 140-109 loss in Houston on Feb. 5, the Warriors’ most lopsided loss of the season. The Rockets scored a season-high point total in that one and a season-low point total on Sunday night.
Golden State also held Houston to season-low point totals in the first quarter (10) and first half (31) and won in Houston for the first time since Dec. 31, 2007.
