(SportsNetwork.com) - The Golden State Warriors will take their four-game winning streak into action Wednesday night when the Detroit Pistons drop by Oracle Arena.
The Warriors haven't lost since March 2 at Brooklyn and own a six-game home winning streak. Golden State is 27-2 as the host this season and, on Monday, became the Western Conference's first 50-win team.
Golden State hammered the Phoenix Suns, 98-80.
Stephen Curry made seven 3-pointers en route to 36 points to lead the Warriors. Curry also had six rebounds, five assists and four steals. Klay Thompson added 25 points and Draymond Green tallied 11 points and 10 boards.
"We didn't let up and we didn't settle with being up five or six (points)," said Thompson. "You know, Steph took the game over on offense."
Golden State led by as many as 11 in the second, but the Suns scored the final nine points of the quarter to make it 46-46. Ahead 53-52, the Warriors created some distance with a 23-5 run. Curry scored 10 points during the burst that Thompson capped with a 3-pointer for a 76-57 edge with 1:41 left in the third.
Golden State held a 76-61 margin heading to the fourth.
After a stop in Denver, the Warriors come back to Oracle Arena for six straight against the New York Knicks, LA Lakers, Atlanta Hawks, New Orleans Pelicans, Utah Jazz and Washington Wizards.
The Pistons are in the midst of a seven-game losing streak and haven't won since Feb. 22 at home versus the Wizards. Detroit has dropped four in a row on the road and still has stops in Portland and Utah on the trek.
On Tuesday, the Pistons started the sojourn with a 93-85 loss to the Lakers.
Greg Monroe led all scorers with 24 points and added nine rebounds in the loss, while Andre Drummond scored 14 points and ripped 21 rebounds. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had 15 and Jodie Meeks chipped in 12.
A Jeremy Lin free throw with under seven minutes to go in the final frame pushed Los Angeles' lead to nine, but Drummond converted successive tip-ins to help Detroit cut its deficit to 83-80 with 2:57 on the clock.
The margin remained three with under a minute left when Jordan Hill knocked down a deep jumper from the top of the key to make it 87-82 LA. Lin then essentially sealed the outcome with two at the free throw line with 31 seconds left.
"In the second half we literally couldn't make a shot," Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said. "At some point you have to put the ball in the basket. Our point guards were 2-for-18, and that makes it hard to win."
The Warriors have won seven straight over the Pistons and four in a row at home.
