SAN FRANCISCO -- The Golden State Warriors notched their seventh consecutive win on Thursday night by beating the two-time defending champions Miami Heat on the road, 123-114, at the American Airlines Arena.
Stephen Curry turned in one of his finest efforts as pro, scoring 36 points while orchestrating the offense deftly with 12 assists. Curry went 8-of-13 from the 3-point arc, besting the entire Heat team who went 8-for-18 from long distance.
Curry got plenty of help from his fellow Warriors as David Lee finished with 32 points and 14 boards while Klay Thompson and Harrison Barnes tallied 16 and 15 points respectively. Andre Iguodala also filled the stats box with eight points, five six rebounds and six helpers.
The Warriors, who improved to 21-13, made 46 of 82 field goals and 15 of 29 triples.
LeBron James finished with 26 points but the four-time MVP stumbled with eight turnovers. The Heat lost only for the third time at home despite making 40 of 78 field goals.
Miami dropped to 24-8, 1.5 games behind the Indiana Pacers who own the best record in the NBA at 25-6. (JSM)
