He did a whole lot of that in a 48-point night to beat the Mavericks on Sunday Curry drained 11 three-pointers, including the go-ahead shot that ended the tight shootout, reminding fans of what a vintage Steph night looked like. Those don’t happen as often with Kevin Durant in town.

INDIANAPOLIS — Stephen Curry scored 23 of his 26 points in the first half, DeMarcus Cousins added 22 and the Golden State Warriors extended the league's longest winning streak this season to 11 with a 132-100 rout of the Indiana Pacers on Monday night.

Kevin Durant had 16 points for the Warriors, who have won a league-best 10 consecutive road games and got their first sweep on a five-game road trip since November 2014. And Draymond Green didn't even play.

Warriors win 9th straight behind Curry's 38 points Stephen Curry scored 38 points, local product Kevin Durant had 21 and the Golden State Warriors hammered the ball inside to beat the Washington Wizards 126-118 Thursday night for their season-high ninth consecutive victory. The two-time defending NBA champions put up 70 points in the paint after shooting 1 of 6 from the outside in the first quarter. Curry was at the forefront of Golden State's drive-the-paint strategy as he made just two of his eight 3-point attempts and was 12 of 16 inside the arc. Durant, from nearby Suitland, Maryland, was 9 of 18 from the floor.

Myles Turner scored 16 points and Bojan Bogdanovic had 15 but Indiana dropped its second straight since losing All-Star guard Victor Oladipo to a season-ending knee injury. The Pacers also played without Tyreke Evans, Oladipo's replacement, because of a sore back.

BOX SCORE: WARRIORS 132, PACERS 100

But even at full strength, the Pacers would have had difficulty weathering the Warriors' flurry.

Curry scored eight straight to break a 16-16 tie midway through the first quarter and Golden State never looked back. The Warriors closed the quarter on a 24-6 run to make it 40-22 against the league's top scoring defense.

At halftime, Curry was 9 of 10 from the field and 5 of 5 on 3s, including a 27-foot buzzer beater to end the half, giving the Warriors a 69-48 lead.
