OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Klay Thompson scored 33 points, Stephen Curry added 31 points and 16 assists, and the Golden State Warriors eased past the Utah Jazz 130-102 Sunday night to keep pace in the Western Conference playoff race.
The streaky shooting backcourt tandem helped the Warriors (48-29) eclipse last season's win total and move 19 games over .500 for the first time in 20 years. Golden State remains 1½ games behind fifth-place Portland and 1½ games ahead of seventh-place Dallas in the crammed conference standings.
Trey Burke had 24 points and 15 assists, and Alec Burks added 24 points and five assists in the latest lopsided loss for the Jazz (24-53), who are in last place in the West.
