OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Stephen Curry had 24 points, and the Golden State Warriors used a smothering defensive effort in the third quarter to pound the Washington Wizards 107-76 on Monday night.
The Warriors held the Wizards without a field goal for nearly 11 minutes after halftime, with Washington missing its first 15 shots. Golden State outscored the Wizards 29-8 in the quarter to take a 24-point lead.
Curry also had six assists and five rebounds as the NBA-leading Warriors (57-13) moved closer to securing the league’s top playoff seed. Draymond Green added 13 points, and Andrew Bogut grabbed 12 rebounds.
It was a season low in points for Washington, which has lost three in a row.
