(SportsNetwork.com) - Oracle Arena has been a house of horrors for opposing teams this season.

The Golden State Warriors have given the home fans their money's worth and will resume a six-game residency Wednesday versus the Indiana Pacers. The Warriors have ripped off 12 straight wins at home and are 14-1 as the host.

Golden State is 4-0 on the stay and dispatched the Oklahoma City Thunder, 117-91, Monday night thanks to a 3-point barrage. It tied a season-high with 15 3-pointers (15-of-28) and held the Thunder to a season-low 30.6 percent from the field.

Harrison Barnes made all five of his 3-pointers en route to 23 points, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson both scored 19 points and Draymond Green finished with 11 points and a game-best 13 rebounds.

"Great job defensively," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. "Our guys were really smart, they helped each other."

The 12-game winning streak at home is the longest for the Warriors since a 15- game run back in the 1989-90 campaign. The 14-1 start as the host is the best since an 18-1 beginning back in 1975-76.

Curry needs one 3-pointer for 1,000 in his career. If Curry makes one against Indiana he will become the fastest player to reach the mark (369 games).

Golden State will close the homestand Friday versus Cleveland.

The Pacers will close out a four-game road trip Wednesday and are 2-1 on the sojourn thanks to Monday's 105-101 victory over the Utah Jazz.

Roy Hibbert finished with 22 points, Luis Scola had 16 off the bench and both Rodney Stuckey and C.J. Miles scored 13 points for Indiana, which raced out to a 31-16 lead after the first quarter and have won six of their last nine games.

"We came out of the gates strong, played a strong basketball game," Pacers coach Frank Vogel said.

Hibbert has been playing well under Vogel recently, posting an average of 15.5 points and 9.0 rebounds in his last four games.

Indiana is 6-12 against teams from the Western Conference and will host the Boston Celtics next on Friday.

The Pacers and Warriors split a pair of meetings last season and the two clubs will collide Feb. 22 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Indiana has prevailed in five of the last seven matchups against Golden State.
