OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Stephen Curry overcame a subpar shooting performance to score 16 points with 11 assists, Harrison Barnes added 22 points and the Golden State Warriors kept rolling at home with a 112-96 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday night.
Curry missed 12 of his first 13 shots from the floor and was 0 for 7 from 3-point range before making back-to-back shots from beyond the arc in the third quarter. He finished 4 for 17.
Marreese Speights had 13 points off the bench, while Leandro Barbosa scored 12 for Golden State. The Warriors improved to 55-13, the second-most wins in team history and four shy of the franchise record.
Alexis Ajinca scored 15 points with eight rebounds for banged-up New Orleans, which played without four of their top six players, including leading scorer Anthony Davis.
