Stephen Curry made eight 3-pointers in scoring a season-high 44 points, leading the Golden State Warriors past Utah 95-90 Friday on a night the Jazz honored former coach Jerry Sloan.

Curry had 13 points in the fourth quarter as the Warriors came from nine points behind to win on back-to-back nights.

Andrew Bogut had 16 points, 17 rebounds and five assists to help overcome the loss of David Lee (shoulder, hip) and a horrendous shooting night from backcourt mate Klay Thompson, who was 3 of 20 for 11 points.

Reserve guard Alec Burks had with 26 points on a variety of jumpers and acrobatic drives but it wasn't enough for Utah, which dealt with injuries to three frontcourt players.
