CHICAGO (AP) – Klay Thompson scored 38 points, Stephen Curry added 30, and the Golden State Warriors beat the Chicago Bulls 119-112 on Wednesday night for their franchise record-tying 14th straight road win.
Kevin Durant had 19 points as Golden State moved into a tie for the third-longest road winning streak in a season in NBA history. The Los Angeles Lakers hold the record with 16 straight road wins during the 1971-72 season.
Next up for the NBA-leading Warriors is a trip to Houston for a showdown with the Rockets on Saturday night.
Nikola Mirotic scored 24 points for Chicago, which dropped to 14-8 since its 3-20 start. Robin Lopez scored 12 of his 16 points in the first half, and Kris Dunn also had 16.
The Warriors played without Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala due to injuries, and Jordan Bell sprained his left ankle when he challenged Lopez’s dunk on the Bulls’ first possession.
THUNDER 114, LAKERS 90
In Oklahoma City, Carmelo Anthony scored 27 points to help Oklahoma City beat Los Angeles, which was still without Lonzo Ball.
Steven Adams had 21 points and 10 rebounds and Russell Westbrook added 19 points and seven assists for the Thunder, who won their third straight. The Thunder shot 48 percent overall and outrebounded the Lakers 54-30.
Ball sat out his second straight game with a sore left knee, and LA dropped to 0-8 without its rookie point guard.
The injury news got worse for the Lakers. Rookie forward Kyle Kuzma left with a finger joint sprain, and forward Kentavious Caldwell-Pope left with a right Achilles tendon strain. Neither returned.
Julius Randle scored all 16 of his points in the first half for the Lakers.
HAWKS 94, PELICANS 93
In Atlanta, Kent Bazemore hit a jumper with 2.1 seconds remaining and Atlanta rallied from 19 points down to beat New Orleans.
With the score tied at 92, DeMarcus Cousins drew a blocking foul on John Collins with 13.7 seconds remaining, earning a trip to the foul line. Cousins made only one, giving the Hawks a chance to pull out the victory.
Bazemore knocked down the winning shot with Anthony Davis in his face. New Orleans had one last chance, inbounding the ball to Cousins near the hoop. He came up short on a quick shot, pleading with the officials for a foul call while the Hawks celebrated.
