OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Klay Thompson scored 40 points, and the Golden State Warriors shook off a slow start to put away the pesky Indiana Pacers 117-102 on Wednesday night for their fifth straight win.
Thompson made 14 of 25 shots, including 6 of 11 from 3-point range, and Stephen Curry added 21 points and a season-high-tying 15 assists to help the NBA-leading Warriors (28-5) stretch their home winning streak to 13 games.
The Pacers pulled ahead by 11 points early and gave Golden State a rare fight despite center Roy Hibbert limping off with a sprained left ankle in the first quarter. The Warriors roared back to tie it at 50 at the half, opened the third quarter on a 14-1 run and made the game look easier than it really was with the final margin.
