NBA Game Summary - Chicago at Golden State



(Thursday, February 6th)

Final Score: Golden State 102, Chicago 87

Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Stephen Curry carried the Warriors with 34 points on 13-of-19 shooting and added nine assists for good measure as Golden State shook off a slow start and topped the Chicago Bulls 102-87 on Thursday.

Klay Thompson chipped in with 22 points for the Warriors, who were coming off a rare lopsided home loss to the Bobcats on Tuesday.

Taj Gibson got the start at power forward in place of the injured Carlos Boozer (left calf strain) and posted 26 points and 13 rebounds for the Bulls, who fell to 2-3 on their six-game road trip.

The starting frontcourt for the Warriors, center Andrew Bogut and power forward David Lee, were also sidelined with injuries, and their absence was felt early on.

"We are a no excuse basketball team, so whoever is in uniform it is a great opportunity for them to step up and take advantage of the opportunity in front them," Golden State coach Mark Jackson said.

The Bulls jumped out to a 34-18 lead just two minutes into the second quarter by connecting on 14 of their first 22 shots. Kirk Hinrich and his backup, D.J. Augustin, combined for 17 at that point, but they were quickly trumped by Curry's torrid display over the final seven minutes of the second frame.

The All-Star guard poured in 16 points during the stretch, including the final seven points of the half to put the Warriors in front 50-46 at the break.

Golden State took a 76-68 advantage into the fourth thanks to Chicago missing 11 of its last 12 shots in the third, and an 8-0 run spurred by 3-pointers by Harrison Barnes and Curry stretched the margin to 89-77 midway through the final stanza.

Back-to-back triples by Tony Snell and Jimmy Butler followed by two Butler free throws with 2:33 to go cut Chicago's deficit to six, but Jordan Crawford answered by rattling in a corner 3, and the Warriors held on over the final two minutes.

"I thought it was a winnable game down the stretch and we didn't get it done," Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said.
