CHICAGO: Draymond Green’s career-high 31 points helped the Golden State Warriors stretch their NBA winning streak to a club record 12 games on Saturday (Sunday in Manila) with a 112-102 victory over Chicago.
Green made seven three-pointers and provided seven rebounds, four steals and three blocks for the Warriors, who improved their league-leading record to 17-2.
The Warriors, under the guidance of first-year coach Steve Kerr, have now bettered their previous franchise record winning streak of 11 games, set from December 1971-January 1972.
Kerr received a warm welcome in Chicago, where he won three of his five NBA championships as a player with the Bulls.
Green’s efforts helped make up for the continuing struggles of Golden State star Stephen Curry, who notched seven assists but connected on just five of 14 shots from the field in an 18-point effort.
Klay Thompson added 24 points—including a three-pointer that ignited a 14-3 fourth-quarter scoring run—for Golden State, whose last defeat came against San Antonio on November 11.
