The Golden State Warriors went on a 19-5 run to end the 3rd quarter and never looked back in their 127-107 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night at Oracle Arena. Klay Thompson scored 45 points in just 31 minutes of action on 14-of-20 (70%) shooting from the field. Golden State dished out 30 assists as a team for the fifth straight game, the first NBA team to do so since the 1994-1995 Orlando Magic.
Golden State's 2015 1st round draft pick Kevon Looney saw his first playing time of the season against the Mavericks on Wednesday since being recalled from Santa Cruz on Sunday. Looney played six minutes, grabbed two boards and even recorded his first NBA basket.
Steph Curry had a relatively quite game with just 14 points and nine assists but posted a team high +25 plus/minus in the Warriors' 40th straight regular season win at home. Golden State heads to Philadelphia to play the Sixers on Saturday at 2:00 p.m. PST.
Tune into CSN Bay Area tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. for a special press conference as the Warriors plan to announce a deal for the naming rights of their new Mission Bay arena in downtown San Francisco. Then check back in at 4:00 p.m. PST when the All-Star reserves will be announced.
