Led by a combined 65 points from the Splash Brothers, the Golden State Warriors notched their 51st straight regular-season home win, improving to 33-0 this season at Oracle Arena.
Stephen Curry poured in a game-high 33 points—to go along with five assists, including a dazzling dish to a streaking Draymond Green—outscoring fellow All-Star point guard Chris Paul by twenty.

Steph was also whistled for a rare technical foul.
Per the AP:
Klay Thompson added 32 points with seven 3-pointers, Curry drew his T in the fourth — “I thought I played great defense that possession” — and Harrison Barnes had 11 points and six rebounds as Golden State (64-7) stayed one game ahead of the 1995-96 Bulls’ pace in their record 72-win season.
Curry, Steve Kerr and Draymond Green all used the word “weird” to describe this game. […] “It was kind of a dead atmosphere in there and it didn’t seem to have the same energy of the rivalry,” Kerr said. “For whatever reason tonight didn’t have the same juice.”
DeAndre Jordan scored 19 points for the Clippers, swept by Golden State for the first time since dropping all six meetings in 1985-86.
