NBA: Iguodala, Curry lead Warriors past Hawks

Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala weighed in with 24 points each as the Golden State Warriors defeated the Atlanta Hawks 119-111 on Monday.

The Warriors maintained their grip on the Western Conference rankings after an inspired performance from Iguodala, who scored his points after coming off the bench to lead a second-quarter rally.

Iguodala made six of eight shots from the field as well as grabbing five rebounds, three steals and providing four assists as the Warriors improved to 52-11 for the season.

Curry's 24-point haul included six three-pointers while he also contributed nine assists and four rebounds.

Klay Thompson meanwhile finished with 13 points, all scored in the second half, while Draymond Green had eight rebounds, six assists and 12 points.

Atlanta, who fell to 34-29, saw point guard Dennis Schroder net 23 points.

However Schroder was hooked with 9:30 left in the third quarter, with coach Mike Budenholzer clearly unhappy with his defensive work.

The Hawks leading scorers also included Paul Millsap with 20 points and 10 rebounds. Tim Hardaway Jr had 19 points, four rebounds and five assists while Kent Bazemore had 18 points.

It was a third straight loss for Atlanta, who led by 15 points in the second quarter before the Warriors gradually built momentum to close to 66-61 at the half.

Thompson led the Warriors fightback in the third period with nine points before Golden State went on to close out the win.
