ANKARA - The Golden State Warriors beat the Detroit Pistons 102-86 in Wednesday's NBA game.
Golden State started the game by making six of nine 3-pointers to build a 33-22 lead at the end of the first quarter and never let go.
Klay Thompson led the Warriors with his season-high 21 points in the 5th game of his return from 941 days of injury absence.
Thompson said, "I had a great time tonight, wish I made a couple more shots, but I just had a great time, it was fun."
Andrew Wiggins and Stephen Curry also helped with 19 and 18 points, respectively.
Rodney McGruder's 19 points and 5 assists performance was far from enough to keep the Pistons afloat.
The Golden State Warriors lies in second place with 32 wins and 12 losses in the Western standings while the Detroit Pistons are at 14th with 10 wins and 33 losses in the Eastern standings.
In another game, Minnesota Timberwolves defeated New York Knicks, 110-112, for their 22nd win in 44 games. The Knicks dropped to 22-23 win-loss record. (Anadolu)
