Warriors 116, Lakers 98—Final

Stephen Curry buried eight three-pointers to guide the Golden State Warriors past the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night at Oracle Arena.

Golden State (37-3) shot 34.8 percent from the field during the first half, but Curry and Draymond Green spearheaded the team in the third quarter. The duo accounted for 30 of the Warriors' 34 points.

Plus, after Julius Randle cut the Warriors lead to 73-70 with 3:38 remaining, they ripped off a 21-4 run. Golden State reserve Shaun Livingston cleaned up down the stretch and totaled 17 points. 

Jordan Clarkson scored a team-high 22, but Los Angeles (9-32) connected on just 4-of-24 three-point attempts. Kobe Bryant's final game in Oakland was a forgettable one. He finished with eight points and six rebounds.
