Klay Thompson finished with 14 points for the Warriors while Stephen Curry had 11 points, 6 assists and 5 rebounds.
"We've been consistent whether we are at home or on the road," Warriors Coach Jackson said. "We play with an edge, we play with a belief, and now our job is just to chalk them up in the win column. Mission accomplished tonight."
Golden State Warriors are eying for their 21st win on Saturday at Oracle Arena against the veteran Boston Celtics team. (RM)
