NEW YORK (AP) - Stephen Curry scored 16 of his 28 points in the third quarter and the Golden State Warriors ran their NBA-record start to 22-0 by beating the Brooklyn Nets 114-98 on Sunday night.

Draymond Green added 22 points, nine rebounds and seven assists. Klay Thompson scored 21 for the Warriors, who won their 26th in a row overall in the regular season, one behind the 2012-13 Miami Heat for the second-longest streak in NBA history.

Coming off consecutive 40-point games, Curry was having a relatively quiet and even puzzling night - he missed his first three free throws - before helping the Warriors regain control against a team that nearly beat them this season and looked capable of finishing the job this time.
