Thompson leads Warriors past Pistons

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Klay Thompson scored 19 of his 27 points in the third quarter, and the Golden State Warriors pulled away to beat the Detroit Pistons, 104-97, on Wednesday.

The Warriors, starting a seven-game road trip against the Eastern Conference, snapped Detroit’s five-game winning streak at home. Golden State has won two straight games in Detroit after losing 25 of 29.

Stephen Curry finished with 22 points and 10 assists, his fourth straight 20-10 game, while David Lee added 20 points and 11 rebounds for the Warriors.

Tayshaun Prince was the only Pistons starter to reach double figures, but four reserves scored at least 10, including 17 from Rodney Stuckey and 15 points and 12 rebounds from Andre Drummond.

Golden State looked as if it would take control early, jumping out to a 19-7 lead, but neither team could shoot well enough to hang on to any sustained advantage in the first half. The Warriors hit 35 percent from the floor, but that was better than Detroit’s 33.9 percent and enough to take a 40-38 advantage into the intermission.

The Warriors, though, scored 27 points in the first eight minutes of the third. Thompson scored 14 points in the burst, and Curry added nine. Thompson kept it going, finishing the period by blocking Greg Monroe’s jumper from behind, then hitting a 3-pointer to give Golden State a 79-61 advantage going into the fourth.

Two dunks by Drummond got Detroit within 83-72, but Thompson answered with a long jumper. Detroit appeared out of the game, but the Pistons hit seven straight shots to pull within 98-95 with a minute to play. Golden State, though, put the game away from the free throw line.

Detroit intentionally fouled Andris Biedrins late in the third quarter. He missed the first shot badly, made the second and was immediately taken out of the game. Biedrins didn’t play in the fourth quarter, but the Warriors did the same thing to Drummond late in the game.
