Warriors rout Thunder behind 3-point barrage

Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Golden State Warriors have looked invincible in the Bay Area since Christmas.

So much so that Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook looked on as spectators for most of the fourth quarter.

Stephen Curry had 19 points, nine rebounds, six assists and four steals as the Warriors routed the Oklahoma City Thunder 117-91 on Monday night.

After a 100-86 loss to the Clippers on Los Angeles on Dec. 25, Golden State's third defeat in five games, the Warriors have rattled off four straight home wins. They've won those contests by an average of 25 points.

Golden State, which went 15-of-28 from beyond the arc Monday, has shot 44.6 percent from 3-point range during its torrid stretch.

The Warriors still have two games remaining on their six-game home swing, which concludes Friday against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Klay Thompson also netted 19 points, Harrison Barnes nailed all five of his long distance shots for a team-high 23 points and Draymond Green added 11 points and 13 boards for the Warriors.

Westbrook sunk 11-of-14 from the foul line and finished with 22 points, while Durant posted 14 points and 10 rebounds, but was just 3-of-16 from the floor for OKC, which had won four of its last five games coming in.

Thompson began red-hot from the floor, nailing his first four shots that included a pair of 3-pointers, and netting 13 points as the Warriors raced out to a 17-6 lead.

Golden State led 34-25 following a quarter of play.

The margin reached 22 late in the first half when Justin Holiday nailed a pull-up triple for a 62-40 Warriors' cushion. Barnes knocked down a trey on Golden State's final possession of the half to stake the Warriors to a 65-45 spread going into the locker room.

Golden State was up 84-65 after three and cruised to the easy win in the fourth, leading by as many as 30 down the stretch.
