Recap: Golden State vs. Phoenix

Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Stephen Curry posted his second triple- double of the season with 14 points, 13 rebounds and 16 assists to lead the Golden State Warriors to a 115-86 dismantling of the Phoenix Suns.

Klay Thompson added 21 points and David Lee finished with 17 points, seven boards and five assists for the Warriors, winners in four straight.

P.J. Tucker was the only Phoenix player in double figures with 11 points while also pulling down 12 rebounds.

Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe struggled mightily, posting just eight and seven points, respectively. The backcourt duo combined for just one rebound, three assists and two steals while finishing just 3-for-18 from the field.

Curry picked up the triple-double just two minutes into the third quarter as Golden State's lead swelled to 22 points after Thompson canned a 3-pointer at the 6:03 mark.

"Everything was shooting, other guys got it going. I was just trying to feed the hot hand and that was pretty much the other four guys on the court. Credit it to them for finishing out the plays," Curry said.

The Warriors' lead ballooned to 29 several times in the fourth.
