Curry ignited a fastbreak in the third quarter, looking toward Klay Thompson on the wing and then throwing a behind-the-back pass to Andre Iguodala for the reverse layup. Curry displayed his usual wizardry with the ball, but there was one play in particular that looked too good to be true.
In his highest-scoring performance since getting 60 on December 5, Thompson hit 7 of 14 3-pointers - giving him at least four 3s in a career-best six consecutive games.
The Warriors can't wait to have him - and be that much more dominant. In a various way, the Golden State Warriors are standing at the top position in this season.
However, he has grown as a playmaker for the offense as a whole, and Curry said it's unfair to compare some of his numbers from a year ago because he is doing different things.
Andrew Wiggins and backup Shabazz Muhammad had 24 points apiece for Minnesota, which defeated Portland 110-109 in Minneapolis the night before.
Kyrie Irving added 24 points and J.R. Smith had 19 for the Cavs, who made nine 3s and scored 43 in the third quarter to turn a tight game into a blowout and beat Orlando for the 17th straight time.
Coach Steve Kerr plans to rest both Iguodala and Green on Wednesday night.
Golden State is primed for a return to the NBA Finals and with Durant back, the team will be favored to come out of the Western Conference. The Warriors scored a season-high 41 fast break points.
OUR PREDICTION: The under has cashed in 20 of the last 26 meetings between these two teams and is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Oakland. He will then be re-evaluated with the hope he is ready to return Saturday against New Orleans at Oracle Arena after being sidelined since February 28. It's very unclear what his role will be once Kevin Durant returns Saturday, but he's - at the very least - met expectations since being signed in early March. The Golden State Warriors had consecutive wins without any struggles in between their road.
