STEPH CURRY SCORED 11 of his 28 points in the final 2:10 of the third quarter, and the Golden State Warriors remained perfect on the season with a 114-98 win over Brooklyn last night.

Klay Thompson scored 21 points as the Warriors improved their NBA record start to 22-0.

“One of our biggest strengths is we are never out of the game and we are always one big run from putting the game away,” said interim coach Luke Walton.

“We constantly encourage our guys to be on the attack.”

Draymond Green finished with 22 points, nine rebounds and seven assists for the Warriors.

Thaddeus Young scored 25 points and Brook Lopez added 18 for Brooklyn, who lost by eight in overtime on 14 November at Golden State after Lopez missed a potential game-winner in regulation.

“We have confidence. When the times get tough we continue to compete and rely on each other,” said forward Green.

Elsewhere, Jeff Green’s alley-oop dunk off an inbounds pass from Courtney Lee with just eight-tenths of a second remaining lifted the Memphis Grizzlies to a 95-93 win over the Phoenix Suns.

Green’s game-winning dunk over ex-teammate Jon Leuer came after the Suns had a chance to win the game with 2.1 seconds left and the game tied 93-93. But Brandon Knight committed a turnover setting the stage for Green to finish it off.

In Detroit, the Pistons scored the game’s first 15 points to cruise to their fourth straight win with a 111-91 victory over the hapless Los Angeles Lakers.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had a season-high 22 points and also had four rebounds and four steals in the win. It marked his third 20-point game of the season.

Reggie Jackson added 20 points and six assists, while Andre Drummond delivered his NBA-high 19th double-double with 18 points and 15 rebounds.

Lou Williams led the Lakers with 21 points. Kobe Bryant missed his first nine field-goal attempts and finished with five points on just two-of-15 shooting in 26 minutes.
