Warriors beat Pelicans for 11th straight win

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Stephen Curry had 19 points and a season-high 11 assists, Klay Thompson scored 23 points, and the Golden State Warriors beat the New Orleans Pelicans 112-85 on Thursday night for their 11th consecutive win.

Harrison Barnes added 17 points and 10 rebounds while Draymond Green had 14 points and 14 rebounds for Golden State, which improved to an NBA-best 16-2.

The winning streak matches the longest in Warriors history. The 1971-72 team also won 11 straight.

Golden State needed a late burst to hold off Orlando and keep the streak going earlier this week. The Warriors also got off a slow start against New Orleans before pulling away behind a 20-4 run in the second quarter for their eighth consecutive win over the Pelicans.

Anthony Davis had his 12th double-double for New Orleans with 30 points and 15 rebounds.
