The Golden State Warriors (38-30) got a much-needed win on the road over the Houston Rockets (36-31) in a 30-point beatdown, 108-78.

The Warriors were only a half-game ahead of Houston for the No. 6 seed, but they extended the lead with a scintillating performance in Houston. Golden State held the Rockets to their lowest halftime point total this year with a 31-point output.

The Rockets’ weak shooting performance started in the first quarter, where they shot 3-for-23 from the field.

Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 55 points, outdueling Jeremy Lin and James Harden, who combined for 42 points. Thompson had six three-pointers in the rout.

The Warriors will now head east to New Orleans to face the Hornets on Monday. The Rockets will host the Utah Jazz on Wednesday.
