The Warriors set a new season-high with 136 points in a blowout road victory over the Lakers.
The Warriors made it three wins in a row on Sunday night after defeating the Lakers 136-115 in Los Angeles. Golden State set a new season-high in points, and scored 40 or more points in consecutive quarters for the first time since 1991. Stephen Curry was terrific, registering the fifth 30-point/15-assist game of his career in just 30 minutes of playing time. Andrew Bogut recorded another double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds, while Marreese Speights added 24 points off the bench, the most by a Warriors’ reserve this season. The 21-point win is the Warriors' largest margin of victory against the L.A. Lakers at Staples Center.
Despite the fact that the Warriors were on the back end of a back-to-back after defeating the Hornets at home on Saturday, the Dubs showed no signs of fatigue as they got off to a blistering start, outscoring the Lakers 34-23 in the first quarter. Much of the lead could be attributed to the play of Andrew Bogut, who’s 12 points in the first frame fell just a point short of his season-high. Golden State scored 20 of those 34 points in the paint, and they were just getting started.
The Warriors’ offense hit another gear in the second quarter, as Marreesse Speights led the charge after replacing Bogut off the bench. By the end of the quarter, the Dubs had scored 40 points, their highest scoring output in any quarter this season. The 74 points at halftime also constituted a season-high for points in a half, and was the first time the Warriors had scored 74 points in a half since Nov. 9, 2009.
