Curry, pass-happy Warriors rout Lakers this time, 149-106
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Stephen Curry had 31 points with seven 3-pointers and nine assists, Kevin Durant scored 28 and the Golden State Warriors found an astonishing first-half offensive flow to run away from the undermanned Los Angeles Lakers 149-106 on Wednesday night.
The Warriors' franchise-record 47 assists – on 53 baskets – are the most in the NBA this season and their most in more than 22 years.
Golden State had 26 assists on 29 baskets before the break, as in sync as the Warriors have been since adding Durant during the offseason and far better than when they took a 20-point beating at Los Angeles less than three weeks ago.
Rookie No. 2 overall draft pick Brandon Ingram scored a career-best 16 points in his first start for Los Angeles, which had no answers defensively as Golden State shot 61.6 percent with 19 3-pointers.
