OAKLAND – The streak continues for the Warriors.
Their 121-111 win over Toronto on Wednesday, coming after a loss to Cleveland on Christmas Day, means the Warriors have gone 119 consecutive regular-season games without taking back-to-back losses.
Five Warriors scored in double figures, led by Stephen Curry, who totaled 28 points. Kevin Durant finished with 22 points, Klay Thompson with 21, Draymond Green 14 and Andre Iguodala 11.
This was a profoundly uneven performance by the Warriors (28-5), as they committed 20 turnovers, off which Toronto scored 26 points. Still, they extended their home win streak over the Raptors to 12 games, dating back to Feb. 8, 2004.
The Warriors shot 58.8 percent – 69 percent through the first three quarters – while limiting the Raptors to 38.8 percent from the field.
Toronto fell to 22-9 despite the efforts of DeMar DeRozan (29 points), Kyle Lowry (27) and Terrence Ross (24).
All four All-Stars did their part, as did Iguodala, but no one put his fingerprints on the game in more ways than Durant.
Durant’s line: 22 points (8-of-15 from the field, including 3-of-5 from deep, 3-of-5 from the line), a season-high 17 rebounds, seven assists and five blocked shots. He played 38 minutes and finished plus-21.
Though the Warriors sprinted out to a 42-17 lead after one quarter, and when Toronto rallied to get within five (56-51, 2:56 left in the second quarter) the Warriors closed with a 16-4 run for a 72-55 lead at the half.
The Raptors got as close as five (114-109, 3:01 remaining) in the second half before the Warriors closed it out down the stretch.
Warriors: No injuries listed. C Damian Jones and F James Michael McAdoo were healthy inactives.
Raptors: F Jared Sullinger (L foot surgery) and G Delon Wright (R shoulder surgery) were listed as out and placed on the inactive list.
The Warriors return to action Friday at Oracle Arena, where they face the Dallas Mavericks. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
