Curry, Thompson Go For 30-Plus Each In Warriors' Win Over Jazz

When the Splash Brothers are both hot, the Golden State Warriors usually win.

When they combine for 64 points against the Utah Jazz, it usually results in a blowout, and the Warriors did just that in a 130-102 rout of the Jazz at Oracle Arena on Sunday night.

Klay Thompson led the way with 33, making seven 3-pointers, while Stephen Curry had 31 on 12-of-18 shooting. They scored at a prolific rate, as they played just 31 and 29 minutes, respectively.

Echoing their win over the Kings in the previous game, the Warriors got off to a hot start and never looked back. Curry put in 15 points in the first quarter alone as the Warriors staked out a 35-22 lead after one. The Jazz responded with a 13-0 run against the Warriors’ bench unit to start the second quarter, cutting the lead to just five. But Curry, Thompson, and the other starters returned to push the lead back up to 66-52 at halftime.

The onslaught continued in the third, as the Warriors crossed the 100-point plateau with 12 minutes to spare, allowing for some major garbage time in the fourth quarter.

Andrew Bogut returned from injury and played 23 minutes, scoring six points and grabbing 11 rebounds. Draymond Green scored 11 points in place of David Lee, who is still sidelined.

The Warriors have taken care of business these past two games against teams they should beat, keeping pace with the teams around them in the playoff picture. They still sit in the sixth spot in the West, 1.5 games back of Portland.

Utah was led by Trey Burke and Alec Burks, who both had 24 points.
