Recap: Golden State vs. Utah
Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Andre Iguodala scored 17 points, Harrison Barnes recorded a double-double of 14 points and 11 rebounds and the Golden State Warriors crushed the Utah Jazz, 101-88, on Friday.
Even with Stephen Curry netting only eight points, the Warriors led by as many as 30 in the wire-to-wire victory.
Curry was more the facilitator than the shot maker, doling out 10 assists for Golden State's balanced attack.
Klay Thompson finished with 14 points, Andrew Bogut scored 12 and Draymond Green filled the box score with 11 points, nine boards and five assists.
"Andre was great ... We knew it was coming, Andre has dominated our scrimmages from the beginning of training camp," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.
The Warriors have won four in a row since losses to Phoenix and San Antonio and improved to 9-2 for the first time since the 1972-73 season.
Enes Kanter netted 18 points to pace Utah, which was coming off a win over the Thunder on Tuesday.
"We got punched and we weren't ready to take that punch," Jazz coach Quin Snyder said.
The Warriors stepped their foot on the gas from the start and never let up.
Thompson and Curry each hit from long range to open the scoring, Green drove in for a dunk and Barnes scored twice inside for a 12-0 lead less than four minutes in.
The margin was 28-13 after 12 minutes of one-sided play and grew to 25 thanks to a Bogut-led 11-0 run late in the second quarter. Bogut netted eight points on the surge, and his reverse dunk with 2:06 left before halftime made it a 53-28 affair.
At the break, the Warriors had a 19-to-2 assist-to-turnover ratio, and the easy buckets kept coming in the second half.Game Notes
