Klay Thompson scored 38 points, Stephen Curry added 30 for the victorious Warriors.

Allen Crabbe led the Nets with 20 points while Joe Harris scored 18 points, but Brooklyn lost its fifth straight home game and fell for the sixth time in seven games.

The Warriors could not relax just yet.

Draymond Green (14.8 points, 8.0 rebounds and 7.2 assists) has been fantastic for the Warriors while Lauri Markkanen (19.4 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.2 steals) has made great contributions to the Bulls.

Julius Randle's rebound and late putback sealed an overtime victory for Los Angeles against Dallas.

A win on Saturday would mean the Warriors would go undefeated on their 5-game road trip, on which they beat the Milwaukee Bucks and played their last regular season games against the Toronto Raptors, Cleveland Cavaliers and the Bulls.

The Lakers (15-27) trailed by double digits in the fourth quarter, but battled back for their first win against the Mavericks in 15 tries and their first win in Dallas since February 24, 2013.

And then the Warriors coasted - and I mean coasted - to the finish line, winning by seven. Montrezl Harrell added 18 points and Lou Williams had 17 for the Clippers.

Warriors will face the Houston Rockets next and look to push their road winning streak to 15. Harrison Barnes and Wesley Matthews each had 17 points for Dallas.

He's done an excellent job of that to this point in his rookie season. He also had four rebounds, two assists and one block in 37 minutes.

Zaza Pachulia had 11 rebounds and five assists with six points, finishing plus-31 on the night. Willie Cauley-Stein had 23 points and 13 rebounds for the Kings in their fourth straight loss.

While 42 points closer this time, the defeat knocks the Bulls down to 17-28 on the season.

LaVine, who returned last week after missing 11 months following surgery to fix a torn ACL, will remain limited to 20 minutes for one final game before the Bulls begin to extend his time on the floor.

All-Star point guard Kemba Walker had several shots blocked on drives to the basket and finished 5 of 17 from the field.

Chicago is 5-5 when they allow under 100 points, while Golden State is 11-2. They also scored a season-high 40 points in the first quarter.

Who the Trends Like: Golden State is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings overall, but only 4-10-1 ATS in the last 15 meetings in Chicago. It's a performance that has many proclaiming last season's lopsided Jimmy Butler deal with the Timberwolves not so lopsided. While Markkanen has played since day one of the season, LaVine had months to get healthy and missed the 2017 portion of the season.

LaVine has averaged 16 points on 57.1 percent shooting, including 62.5 percent on 3-pointers, in his first two games.
