OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Klay Thompson scored 25 points, JaVale McGee added a season-best 17, and the Golden State Warriors put on an another spectacular passing display to beat the undermanned New York Knicks 103-90 on Thursday night.
Kevin Durant had 15 points, 14 rebounds and eight assists and Stephen Curry pulled down a season-high 10 rebounds to go with eight points and eight assists facing a New York team missing stars Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose.
The Warriors had 36 assists on their initial 36 baskets – all 26 in the first half – and all 11 players who appeared in the first half scored in Golden State’s fifth straight win against New York. The Warriors wound up with 41 assists and held a 57-49 rebounding advantage.
Justin Holiday had 15 points off the bench for the late-arriving Knicks, whose second bus was delayed coming from San Francisco in a downpour.
