Durant scores 32 in 31 minutes, Warriors top Pistons 119-113 (Dec 23, 2016)

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) The Golden State Warriors gave the Detroit Pistons a shot at an upset, turning the ball over more than they had in any game this season. They made up for mistakes by making a lot of shots.

Draymond Green had a tiebreaking dunk with 1:31 left and Kevin Durant scored 32 points despite playing in foul trouble, lifting Golden State to a 119-113 victory on Friday night.

”We can’t win many games when we give up 33 points on turnovers, but we finished strong,” Golden State coach Steve Kerr said. ”Give them credit, too. That’s a top-five defense, and they forced a lot of those turnovers.”

Golden State had a season-high 23 turnovers, surpassing the 20 it had in a 20-point loss Nov. 4 against the Los Angeles Lakers.

The NBA-leading Warriors have won seven straight, rolling with their new star, Durant, as they head into their Christmas NBA Finals rematch in Cleveland.

Stephen Curry had 25 points and eight assists, Klay Thompson scored 17 points, including two on a lead-padding jumper with 22 seconds to go, and reserve JaVale McGee added 15.

”We couldn’t guard them,” Detroit coach Stan Van Gundy said. ”Look at their numbers.”

Golden State made 56 percent of its shots and was 11 of 27 from the 3-point line.
