The Warriors won their fifth-straight and 12th consecutive home game on Saturday night, defeating the visiting Utah Jazz 106-91. Stephen Curry notched a game-high 24 points, Draymond Green filled the stat sheet with 15 points, seven assists and six boards, while Leandro Barbosa came off the bench to notch 19 points.

After Derrick Favors scored the first points of the game on his first made three-pointer of the season, the Warriors used two separate 7-0 runs to gain a 14-7 lead within the first six minutes. The Dubs defense came to play, as the Warriors held the Jazz without a field goal for a span of 4:19 until Joe Ingles sank a three-pointer with six seconds left in the opening frame to send the game into the second quarter with the Warriors up 19-15. A Marreese Speights’ jumper and a Harrison Barnes three-pointer to open the quarter gave the Dubs a 24-15 lead with 10:55 left. From there, the two teams traded buckets until Rodney Hood and Trevor Booker combined for three consecutive makes to bring the Jazz within one, down 36-35 with 3:38 remaining. Then, Stephen Curry took over. He scored the game’s next six points and 11 of the final 13 Warriors’ points of the quarter as the Dubs went into halftime with a 49-40 lead.

The Jazz would use an 11-4 run within the first four minutes of the quarter to chip away at the deficit and trail 55-51 with 8:19 remaining. Gordon Hayward, who went scoreless in the first half, notched nine straight points to keep the Jazz afloat. Laterer, the Warriors used a 10-3 run over a span of 1:43 to gain a bit of breathing room, leading 77-64 with 2:16 left in the quarter. Leandro Barbosa sank a jump shot with 29 seconds left to give the Dubs their largest lead of the game up to that point before a Jazz’ dunk sent the teams into the fourth quarter with the Warriors up 85-73. Utah would cut the deficit to single digits after a 6-0 run to get within 89-83 with 8:30 remaining in the game. However, the Warriors responded with a 7-0 run, and the lead remained in double digits for the duration of the contest. Golden State’s lead reached its apex after an Andre Iguodala three-pointer with 1:36 remaining to put the Dubs up 104-89, as the Warriors coasted through the final minutes to a 106-91 victory.


The win moves the Warriors to 56-13 on the season. They’ll look to round out their homestand with a perfect 6-0 record when they take on the Wizards on Monday on Rick Barry Bobblehead Night.
