Another shooting clinic from Stephen Curry fueled the Warriors to their seventh-straight win, a 111-96 victory over the Magic in Orlando on Wednesday night. Curry, who scored a season-high 40 points (8-of-11 3FG) the night before in Miami, finished the game with 28 points (9-of-13 FG, 6-of-8 3FG), eight assists and five rebounds in 23 minutes. Curry began the game by hitting six-straight triples and scored 25 points in the first half alone, a high for any Warrior in the first half this season. Seven players scored in double-figures, including a season-high 15 points and five assists for Shaun Livingston. Andrew Bogut tallied six points, 12 boards, seven assists and two steals while Harrison Barnes added 16 points on 7-of-9 shooting and grabbed five rebounds.
The Warriors opened the game on a 10-0 run, but allowed the Magic to get back in the game midway through the second quarter. Golden State responded with a run of their own that included 11 points in six minutes from Stephen Curry, sending the squad into halftime with a 65-52 lead. The Dubs led by as many as 27 in the second half. The win was the Warriors' third-straight over the Magic, the first time they’ve won three-straight over Orlando since winning their first four games ever against the franchise in the 1989-90 and 1990-91 seasons.
