A matchup of the two highest scoring teams didn’t feature all of the offense one would suspect, but the Dubs made the baskets when they counted most.

Only it wasn’t the usual suspects. Only four points during the game-changing run were scored by starters, and those were by Matt Barnes.

The rest were scored by a Warriors reserve unit that can be largely credited for the team extending their win streak to 10 games.

Steph Curry had a team-high 24 points, seven rebounds and five assists. Klay Thompson added 20 points in the win.

James Harden flirted with a triple-double finishing with 17 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists in the loss.
