Curry, Thompson Lead Warriors Past Rockets 3/18/13
HOUSTON - Stephen Curry scored 29 points, Klay Thompson had 26 with six
3-pointers, and Golden State stayed ahead of Houston in the Western Conference
standings with a 108-78 win over the Rockets on Sunday night.
James Harden and Jeremy Lin scored 21 points apiece for the Rockets, who now
trail Golden State by 1.5 games for the No. 6 seed in the West.
Golden State snapped a five-game losing streak to the Rockets and got some
payback for a 140-109 loss in Houston on Feb. 5, the Warriors' most lopsided
loss of the season. The Rockets scored a season-high point total in that one and
a season-low point total on Sunday night.
Golden State also held Houston to season-low point totals in the first
quarter (10) and first half (31) and won in Houston for the first time since
Dec. 31, 2007.
