Curry and Thompson score 29 each as Warriors stretch win streak to 6 with 133-110 win over Rockets

HOUSTON (AP) - Steph Curry and Klay Thompson scored 29 points each and the Golden State Warriors stretched their winning streak to a season-high six games with a 133-110 win over the Houston Rockets on Thursday night.

The Warriors, who are in 10th place in the Western Conference, never trailed and built a 15-point lead by halftime behind 21 points by Thompson. He made seven 3-pointers with five of them coming in the first half.

They improved to 3-0 against Houston this season and have won the last 13 regular-season games against the Rockets.

Jabari Smith Jr. had 24 points to lead the Rockets, who dropped their third game in a row after winning their previous 11 games. Rookie Cam Whitmore added 17 points off the bench.

The Warriors moved to 42-34 with the win to give them a winning season for the 38th time in franchise history and the fourth in a row.

Golden State was up by 16 after three and had pushed the lead to 20 when coach Steve Kerr cleared the bench with about four minutes remaining.

Rookie Trayce Jackson-Davis scored a career-high 20 points for the Warriors with five rebounds and four assists in his 10th start this season.

The Warriors were without Jonathan Kuminga for a fifth straight game because of a knee injury. But Kerr said he was doing better and should return Friday night.

Houston's Alperen Sengun, who has been out since severely spraining his right ankle March 10, spoke to reporters for the first time since his injury Thursday. He said he's doing much better, but that he's only at about 60%, making it unlikely that he'll return this season.
