Draymond Green scored 20 points and Stephen Curry added 16 points and 10 assists as the Golden State Warriors beat the Detroit Pistons 104-93 Sunday for their ninth straight victory.

Marreese Speights added 11 points and 12 rebounds for the Warriors (14-2).

The Pistons (3-14) have lost eight in a row, the longest streak of Stan Van Gundy's coaching career, and have matched his career worst at 11 games under .500. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope led Detroit with 23 points.

Van Gundy broke up his usual three-post lineup against the smaller Warriors, starting Kyle Singler at small forward and bringing Greg Monroe off the bench. It didn't work. Monroe, Andre Drummond and Josh Smith shot a combined 12 for 38.
