NBA: Sharp-shooters Curry and Thompson bring Warriors closer to record

OAKLAND (Reuters) - Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 18 third-quarter points, allowing the Golden State Warriors to break open a close game en route to a 114-98 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers.

In recording their sixth consecutive win over the Clippers, the Warriors (64-7) completed their first 4-0 season-series sweep of Los Angeles since the 1985-86 season while going 57 games over .500 for the first time in franchise history.

Curry (four) and Thompson (seven) combined for 11 3-pointers as the Warriors moved within eight wins of the Chicago Bulls' all-time single-season record for wins with 11 games to go.
