Defending champions, the Golden State Warriors are chasing the Chicago Bulls' 72-10 record for the best regular season in the National Basketball Association.

The Warriors, who improved to a franchise-best 27-0 at home this season, have won 45 straight regular-season contests at Oracle dating back to January 31, 2015.

Monta Ellis scored 26 points and three-time All-Star Paul George added 23 to help the Indiana Pacers to a 99-91 victory over the San Antonio Spurs that brought an end to their eight-game winning streak. Thompson then made a baseline three-pointer under pressure with 52.5 seconds remaining and Curry followed with a layup at the 44.3 mark and two free throws with 32.5 seconds to play.

Victor Oladipo scored 26 points and Evan Fournier had 23 for the Magic, who have lost three straight.

"Dude, I don't know", Bryant said Sunday after the Lakers' 112-95 win over the Golden State Warriors at Staples Center.

Cavs sloppy vs Grizzlies: The Cavs outrebounded Memphis 49-35, LeBron James scored 28 points, Kyrie Irving added 27 and the Grizzlies were missing four starters yesterday. Stephen Curry scored 18 points to lead Warriors.

They've been alright without being particularly good this season, sitting on a 27-34 record, which is only good enough for 11th place in the Eastern Conference. It comes as no surprise that the reigning Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry made a significant contribution to his team.

Even with Kobe Bryant watching in a suit, there was no hangover for the young Los Angeles Lakers after their jaw-dropping victory over Golden State.

That kind of shooting represented quite a turnaround from the 1-of-18 three-point outing Thompson and Curry put forth against the Lakers. Clarkson has been the Lakers' steadiest player on the season and only trails Bryant in scoring average for the purple and gold though Clarkson has appeared in more games than the 20-year professional. With only 70 seconds of left in the ballgame, Gordon reduced the lead to two points.

In other games, Chicago beat Milwaukee at home 100-90 with Pau Gasol having 12 points, 17 rebounds, 13 assists and five blocked shots.

"I joke with Steph all the time that this team is full of millennials, and millennials can't focus", Kerr said, "so we looked like millennials today".

"Andre Iguodala is doubtful to suit up Monday night while Draymond Green's status remains uncertain", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.
