HOUSTON (AP) — Stephen Curry had 34 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Golden State Warriors past the depleted Houston Rockets 98-87 Saturday night in a matchup of undefeated teams.
Houston played without center Dwight Howard (flu-like symptoms) and power forward Terrence Jones (bruised right leg), which made things much easier for the Warriors inside.
They outscored the Rockets 56-32 in the paint and improved to 5-0 for the first time since the 1994-95 season, when Golden State finished 26-56 under coach Don Nelson.
Curry shot 6 for 9 from 3-point range and finished with five assists and four steals. Andre Iguodala scored most of his 15 points near the basket, and forward Draymond Green added 14.
James Harden led the Rockets (6-1) with 22 points, and point guard Isaiah Canaan had 21.
