Houston: Stephen Curry scored 29 points, Klay Thompson had 26 with six three-pointers, as the Golden State Warriors kept their Western Conference standings in the NBA with a 108-78 win over the Houston Rockets at Toyota Center.
James Harden and Jeremy Lin scored 21 points each for the Rockets, who now trail Golden State by one and a half games for the No.6 spot in the Western Conference.
The Warriors Sunday night ended a five-game losing streak to the Rockets and got some payback for a 109-140 loss in Houston Feb 5, the Warriors` most-lopsided loss of the season.
The Rockets went into the game as the NBA`s highest scoring team, but their offence looked awful most of the night.
I`ve always said the person who wins the world championship this year is the person who does the best job on the circuit, but that does not seem the way it is at the moment.
