OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Stephen Curry made seven 3-pointers and finished with 32 points, and the Golden State Warriors overwhelmed the undermanned Miami Heat 104-89 on Wednesday night for their eighth straight victory.
With a strained left hamstring sidelining Heat star Dwyane Wade, the NBA-leading Warriors (31-5) mowed down Miami the way they have most opponents recently. Golden State has won by an average of 19.8 points during its current streak.
The Warriors built a 19-point lead in the second quarter and responded every time Miami moved close.
Chris Bosh had 26 points and seven rebounds but couldn’t carry the Heat alone. Luol Deng added 19 points, and Hassan Whiteside had 10 points and 12 rebounds for Miami.
