HOUSTON (AP) - Klay Thompson scored 38 points, Draymond Green had a triple-double and the Golden State Warriors overcame star Stephen Curry's absence to beat the Houston Rockets 114-110 on Thursday night.

Golden State was blown out by Dallas on Wednesday night for just its second loss of the season when Curry missed his first game since March because of a sore left lower leg. But the Warriors were able to outlast the Rockets thanks to the big night by Thompson, who made six 3s.

Green had a career-high 16 assists and added 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Houston cut it to 3 with a jump shot by James Harden with about 5 minutes left before Golden State scored the next six points, highlighted by an alley-oop dunk from Andre Iguodala to Bogut, to make it 111-102.

Harden had 30 points for the Rockets. They have dropped seven straight regular-season games to the Warriors.
