Gulf News

Washington: Klay Thompson scored 38 points and Stephen Curry added 30 to spark defending NBA champions Golden State over Chicago 119-112 on Wednesday, giving the Warriors a club record-matching 14th consecutive road victory.

Thompson and Curry overwhelmed from 3-point range, with Thompson sinking seven and Curry adding six, while Kevin Durant had 19 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.

“Every night we come out it’s a different guy,” Thompson said.

Golden State improved to a league-best 37-9 and moved two road wins shy of matching the all-time NBA record away win streak of 16 games, set by the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1971-72 season as part of their overall record 33-game win streak.

“It’s not about records,” Durant said. “We just want to play good every day. We want to keep getting better, build better habits.”
