MIAMI -- Stephen Curry burned the Miami Heat for 40 points on Tuesday night and the Golden State Warriors improved to 11-2 for the season following a hard-fought 114-97 victory at the American Airlines Arena.
Curry converted 10 of 19 field goals and did the most damage from beyond the 3-point arc where he went 8 for 11. Curry also finished with six rebounds and seven assists.
"I had some guys set some great screens early to kind of get me going. You start finding shots and it feels good. Even the ones I missed terribly felt good, which is pretty funny," Curry told reporters after the game.
Making matters worse for the host Heat was Klay Thompson, who also did well from the field, making 10 of 19 shots for 24 points. Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green combined for 23 for Golden State.
Down 95-93 with still 7:24 left in the fourth quarter, the Warriors put the game away with a 14-0 run. It was a lead they would never relinquish.
Chris Bosh tallied 26 points and nine rebounds for the Heat, who played without injured star Dwyane Wade. Luol Deng chalked 16 points and Mario Chalmers contributed 14.
Miami knocked down 10 of 23 triples but they only made 33 of their 85 total shots. The Heat, who fell to 8-7 in the standings, were also out rebounded, 45-40, and they managed only 16 assists against the Warriors' 21. (RG)
