The Chicago Bulls continued their six-game road trip on Thursday night with the Golden State Warriors, and the Dubs fell flat early once again only to see their notorious shooters find their form to slay the Bulls 102-87. 

Both teams were short-handed up front, as the Warriors played without Andrew Bogut (shoulder) and David Lee (shoulder), and the Bulls announced Carlos Boozer (calf) as a late scratch. 

Stephen Curry scored 34 points and handed out nine assists. Klay Thompson filled out the backcourt with 22 points of his own. Jermaine O'Neal and Draymond Green started up front in place of Bogut and Lee, but when the "Splash Brothers" are hot you don't need big men.

Taj Gibson started for Boozer and dominated the game in many respects. He scored 26 points on 9-of-23 shooting, and added 13 rebounds, four dimes, two steals and two blocks. Joakim Noah flirted with a triple-double on seven points, 10 boards and a career-high 11 assists.

The Bulls (24-25) led 34-18 with 10:25 left in the second quarter. Curry had only six points. Then the Warriors (30-20) happened, and by halftime Curry had 22 and the Dubs led 50-46. Chicago kept fighting but the Warriors never let up.  

The Bulls round out their road trek with the Los Angeles Lakers on Feb. 9 in a Sunday afternoon tilt on ABC. The Warriors visit the Phoenix Suns on Feb. 8 where they will look to avoid another slow start.
