BOSTON (AP) — Stephen Curry scored 38 points with 11 rebounds and eight assists and the Golden State Warriors improved to 24-0 this season by outlasting the Boston Celtics 124-119 in double overtime Friday night.
Counting the wins in their final four games last season, the defending NBA champions have won 28 in a row. They broke a tie with the 2012-13 Miami Heat for the second-longest winning streak in league history, and now trail only the 33 straight by the Los Angeles Lakers in 1971-72.
And the Warriors did it despite Curry's worst-shooting night of the year.
Curry made only 9 of 27 shots from the field. But he was 6 for 13 from 3-point range and a perfect 14 of 14 from the free throw line, sinking a pair of foul shots with 13.4 seconds left to give the Warriors a three-point lead.
