Stephen Curry had 34 points and nine assists, Klay Thompson scored 22 points and the undermanned Golden State Warriors rallied from 16 points down in the first half to defeat the Chicago Bulls, 102-87, on Thursday night.
Curry finished 13-for-19 shooting, and Thompson shot 8 of 16 from the floor to give the Warriors' raucous fans a reason to cheer after losing five of their previous seven at home.
at Brooklyn 103, San Antonio 89: Alan Anderson scored 19 of his 22 points in the second half, helping the Nets pull away from the short-handed Spurs. Despite playing without Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard, their top four scorers, the Spurs were still within five points early in the fourth quarter before the Nets pulled away for good.
Deron Williams added 16 points and eight assists as Brooklyn ended a six-game losing streak to San Antonio with its first victory since March 29, 2010.
So banged-up that at one point that they had two players on the court wearing facial masks to protect broken noses, the Spurs fell to 2-1 on their nine-game rodeo trip.
Cory Joseph scored 18 for the Spurs, Danny Green had 17 and Patty Mills 16.
