Recap: Utah vs. Golden State

Salt Lake City, UT (SportsNetwork.com) - Before leaving the game, Stephen Curry scored 15 of his 22 points in a big second quarter and the Golden State Warriors beat the Utah Jazz 98-87 Monday night to sweep a home-and-home series between the teams.

Curry exited with 8:50 remaining after Jazz forward Marvin Williams fell on his head as the two crashed to the floor. Curry -- who just had the ball stripped from him -- walked off the court with a towel over his head.

Williams, 6-foot-9 and 240 pounds, landed on Curry's head with his hip but Warriors coach Mark Jackson indicated Curry was OK.

"He took a hard spill," said Jackson. "He's got a little headache right now but it could be a lot worse."

Curry made three 3-pointers in the second quarter and the Warriors shot better than 68 percent, outscoring the Jazz 37-17 in the period to take control.

Klay Thompson and Harrison Barnes had 17 points apiece and David Lee scored 14 with 14 rebounds for the Warriors, who beat the Jazz 102-88 Saturday to finish a 3-0 homestand.

Hayward scored 18 points -- but just six after the first quarter -- and Marvin Williams had 16 off the bench for Utah, which fell to 1-11.

Hayward's 12 points in the first quarter came as the Jazz shot just 33 percent to trail 22-19 going into the second.

Curry and Thompson hit back-to-back 3s to spark a 30-9 run that gave the Warriors a 59-36 lead at halftime. Curry had 10 points during the surge and Thompson scored six.

Hayward was scoreless in the second quarter and the Jazz stayed at 33 percent shooting for the half.

Williams had seven points in a 29-19 third quarter for the Jazz which cut the deficit to 78-65 heading into the fourth. But Utah never got closer than 11 the rest of the way.

"I thought they were the more aggressive team. I thought they played with a lot more energy than we did," said Utah coach Tyrone Corbin.
