SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Stephen Curry scored 31 points, including six straight in overtime, and the Golden State Warriors continued their historic run with a 103-96 victory over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night.
The Warriors (68-7) surpassed last season’s victory total and must win five of their final seven games to break the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls’ record of 72-10.
Klay Thompson hit the tying 3-pointer with 15 seconds remaining after an offensive rebound and kick-out from Shaun Livingston after Thompson missed the previous attempt.
Curry took over with his burst that gave the Warriors a 99-93 lead. He then took a charge on Gordon Hayward with 1:21 left before setting up Draymond Green’s dunk on the ensuing possession to put away the game.
The Jazz (37-38) fell into a tie with the Houston Rockets for the No. 7 slot in the Western Conference playoff race.
