Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Stephen Curry hit seven 3-pointers and netted 32 points as the Golden State Warriors routed the Miami Heat 104-89 on Wednesday night.
Klay Thompson added 19 points for the Warriors, who tied a franchise record with their 15th straight home win. The 1989-90 team also won 15 straight in Oakland.
"The schedule is what it is. You gotta play 41 on the road and 41 at home," Curry said. "I think for us, we know we gotta play some good teams on the road. If we can win them, it will boost our confidence and keep our momentum going."
Chris Bosh posted 26 points and seven rebounds, Luol Deng provided 19 points and seven boards and Hassan Whiteside tallied 10 points and 12 boards for Miami, which had won three of its last four games coming in.
"They were getting a lot of easy buckets," Bosh said. "Not so much the first quarter, (but) the second. They pushed it to double digits and we weren't able to recuperate."
The game was tied 9-9 prior to the midway point of the opening frame before the Warriors seized control with a 17-5 run.
Thompson netted 10 points with a pair of 3-pointers during the surge, which was capped on two David Lee free throws for a 26-14 Golden State advantage late in the first.
The Warriors led 26-18 following a quarter of play and were up 55-38 at the break.
After two Bosh foul shots pulled the Heat within 66-57 at the 4:49 mark of the third, Golden State re-established momentum with a 12-4 swing. Curry nailed two triples and Marreese Speights finished off the flurry with two free throws for a 78-61 Warriors margin.
Golden State was up 81-63 after three and cruised to the easy triumph over the final 12 minutes.
