Warriors use big first half to coast to their 23rd straight win to start the season.

The Golden State Warriors have one question for basketball fans around the world:

After 81 first half points the Warriors cruised past the Indiana Pacers to their 27th consecutive regular season victory. It was all lollipops and rainbows through three quarters until Indiana outscored Golden State by 20 points in the fourth. Thus prompting Luke Walton to insert the starters back into the game with a little over five minutes left in the final period. The Warriors didn't blow their 28 point fourth quarter lead, but things did get a little too close for comfort.

Klay Thompson finished with 39 points on 10-16 shooting from three-point range, including seven rebounds and six assists. Stephen Curry added 29 points, seven rebounds and ten assists. Andrew Bogut chipped in 14 points and ten rebounds in just 23 minutes of action.

Unfortunately for the Warriors, Klay Thompson left the game late in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury. Although Thompson looked to be in pain on the bench, he did walk off the court under his own power. Golden State heads to Boston on Friday and Milwaukee on Saturday to finish up their road trip.
