Curry scores 31 points as Warriors rout Clippers
(Associated Press) - October 31, 2017 - 5:39am

LOS ANGELES — Stephen Curry scored 31 points and Kevin Durant added 19 to help Golden State rout the Los Angeles Clippers 141-113 on Monday night (Tuesday Manila time) for the Warriors’ 11th consecutive win in the series.

The Warriors (5-3) have not lost to the Clippers since Christmas Day in 2014.

The Clippers (4-2) were the last team in the NBA to lose a game, but have now dropped two consecutive. Danilo Gallinari scored 19 points and Lou Williams added 17.

Curry hit seven of his 11 three-point attempts, and added six assists and five rebounds.

Draymond Green added 16 points for the Warriors while Klay Thompson had 15.

The Warriors outrebounded the Clippers 46-35 and shot 58 percent on the night.

The Warriors made their defensive strategy known early. Despite the Clippers often running their offense through Blake Griffin, he got off only three shots with 1:38 left in the first half. Every time he had the ball down low, the Warriors would quickly double-team him.

Golden State, meanwhile, was shredding the Los Angeles defense. They connected on 61 percent of their shots in the first half and led 74-57 at the break.

The Clippers pulled within nine to start the second half before Curry led Golden State to the easy win.
