Stephen Curry scores 16 of his 28 points in the third quarter, extending the Golden State Warriors winning streak to 22 by beating the Brooklyn Nets 114-98.
Coming off consecutive 40-point games, Curry was having a relatively quiet and even puzzling night before helping the Warriors regain control.
As the basketball ace missed three of free throws, the Brooklyn Nets looked more like a team that almost beat the Warriors earlier this season, and has returned with the intent to finish the job.
But the Curry put together one of his electrifying flurries to end that notion, and Golden State put it away in a hurry with a blistering start to the fourth.
Klay Thompson scored 21 for the Warriors, who won their 26th in a row overall in the regular season, one behind the 2012-13 Miami Heat for the second-longest streak in NBA history.
Draymond Green added 22 points, nine rebounds and seven assists.
The Warriors equaled another NBA record, tying the 1969-70 New York Knicks for the best road start at 12-0. They visit Indiana on Tuesday.
