SUPER STEPHEN — Curry, Warriors snap 6-game drought

NOAH GRAHAM/ AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE STEPHEN Curry fires 32 points laced with five three-pointers to lift the Golden State Warriors to a 121-116 win over the Houston Rockets in the NBA regular season.

LOS ANGELES (AFP) — The Golden State Warriors ended a run of six straight defeats with a 121-116 win over the Houston Rockets in the National Basketball Association on Monday.

Stephen Curry, who brought home the win after playing the entire fourth quarter, led the Warriors scoring with 32 points while Klay Thompson returned to form with a 20-point haul which included five three-pointers.

Chris Paul added 15 points and 12 assists in helping the Warriors book their 12th consecutive win over the Rockets.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said he fielded Curry in the entire fourth quarter to make sure that they will be back on winning track.

“At this stage you just need to win a game,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

“That was the focus tonight. That’s why I played Steph the whole fourth. He was brilliant all night.”

Already the league’s all-time leader in three-pointers made, Curry emerged as the first player in league history to have four or more in each of his first 13 games to start a season. The nine-team All-Star and two-time Most Valuable Player was 8-of-14 from the floor and 5-of-9 from the three-point area.

All in all, it is Curry’s seventh season game this season with 30 or more points, and 10th with at least 25 points.

“Haven’t had good energy walking off this floor in a while,” Curry said after helping the Warriors post their second home win of the season since 1 November.

“We needed this one for sure.”

Meanwhile, the Charlotte Hornets overcame a 45-point display from Jayson Tatum to end Boston’s six-game winning streak with a thrilling 121-118 overtime victory.
