A matchup of the top teams from the Western and Eastern conferences had all the electricity a basketball fan can ask for, and the Warriors made sure the home crowd went home happy with Friday’s 126-105 win over the Raptors.

The first game of the New Year saw Stephen Curry pick up where he left off in 2014, scoring 13 of his 32 points in the fourth quarter. Curry helped put the game away, scoring or assisting on every bucket during a game-clinching 14-0 run that started with five minutes left in the final period. While he took over the game late, his best play of the night might have been an emphatic fastbreak slam in the third quarter that absolutely brought the house down at Oracle Arena.

Curry finished that dunk over Raptors guard Kyle Lowry, who up to that point had kept Toronto in the game. Lowry finished with 22 points and eight assists, but was held scoreless in the fourth quarter. Lowry was a part of a potent Raptors backcourt that saw backup guard Greivis Vasquez light it up with 25 points and fellow reserve Lou Williams put in 20.

As hot as that duo was off the bench, the Warriors’ starters were hotter. Marreese Speights had it going with his jumper early, making five of his first six shots on the way to a 26-point night. Klay Thompson sank four three-pointers for 20 points, giving the Warriors three 20-point scorers for the fourth time this season.

Draymond Green made a statement of his own, finishing with 16 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds for his first triple-double of his career. Green became the first Warriors player to post a triple-double since Curry last April, and the 32nd player in team history to enter the club.

As they have done all season, the Warriors made a point to share the ball. The result – the second straight game with at least 35 assists, the first time the Dubs have achieved that in 20 years. Green led the way with his career-high 13 dimes, and Curry had 12 assists for the 20th 30-and-10 game of his career.

Golden State out-shot the Raptors (53.3 percent to 46.5 percent), out-rebounded them (45-37) and had fewer turnovers (nine to 17), leading to the 11th straight home win for the Warriors, who have now won 10-straight games against the Raptors at Oracle Arena.

The Dubs will look to continue their winning ways on Monday when they continue the homestand against the Thunder on Warriors Whiteout Night, powered by The Clorox Company.
