OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Stephen Curry bounced back from his worst shooting performance of the season to score 24 points, Leandro Barbosa added a season-high 19 off the bench and the Golden State Warriors pulled away late to beat the Utah Jazz 106-91 on Saturday night.
One day after shooting 4 of 17 in a win over New Orleans, Curry went 8 of 18 from the floor against a Utah defense that had been the NBA’s stingiest over the past three weeks. He also showed a little grit after sitting out the first 7 minutes of the fourth quarter when he crashed to the floor after being fouled hard by Derrick Favors.
Draymond Green added 15 points, six rebounds and seven assists for the Warriors (56-13), who have the best record in the NBA.
Favors had 21 points and 11 rebounds for the Jazz. Utah lost for only the fourth time since the All-Star break.
