Durant and Curry were two of five Warriors players to make double figures as the depth of the National Basketball Association champions proved too much for Memphis at Oakland's Oracle Arena.

"It's hard to really put it into perspective, to be honest", Curry said.

"There's a few things that we need to do more of that we are doing well, and things that we're not doing so well, do a little less", he said. He's obviously a brilliant player and sets a great tone every night and every day at practice. Omri Casspi added a season-high 20 points against his former team.

Spurs 123, 76ers 96: In San Antonio, Rudy Gay had 21 points and LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan each added 20 as San Antonio defeated Philadelphia. But Harden took over after that, scoring all of Houston's points in a 9-2 run that gave the Rockets a six-point lead with about 5 1/2 minutes left in the quarter.

Ben Simmons and JJ Redick had 16 points apiece for the Sixers, but Joel Embiid was restricted to 13 points while Jimmy Butler suffered an off-target night, making just three of 13 field goal attempts.

But James Harden secured the win with a step-back three on Houston's next possession and the Rockets escaped with a 102-97 win.

Reigning NBA MVP Harden produced a dazzling display of scoring to delight the home fans at the Toyota Center with a win that took the Rockets above.500 for the season.

Houston are now 15-14 for the season while Utah have slipped to 14-17, one place off the bottom in the Western Conference.

Harden's virtuoso display included six rebounds and five assists.

But it was Harden's eye-catching display that dominated the postgame discussion, with coach Mike D'Antoni leading the plaudits.

Entering Wednesday, the Golden State Warriors have an all-time record of 155-51 when superstar point guard Stephen Curry shoots 10 or more 3-pointers in a game, which is a 62-win pace per season. The Golden State Warriors have won their last four road games.

"It's just the determination that he has". He's been that way the past week and for the right reasons. We have never seen a player shoot so effortlessly from 3 like Curry before and we likely never will.

Donovan Mitchell was fouled by Eric Gordon on a three-pointer and made all three free throws to cut the lead to two with 35 seconds left.

Bucks 107, Pistons 104: In Detroit, Giannis Antetokounmpo had 32 points and 12 rebounds, and Milwaukee held on for a victory over Detroit when Blake Griffin missed a last-second 3-pointer.

Antetokounmpo's points haul included one spectacular driving dunk in the second quarter that embarrassed the Pistons defense. Kevin Durant is averaging 28.8 points and 7.5 rebounds while Stephen Curry is averaging 28.8 points and 5.5 assists.

Thunder 121, Bulls 96: In Oklahoma City, Paul George scored 16 of his 24 points in the final five minutes of the first half and Oklahoma City rolled past Chicago. Griffin finished with 19 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds, but he also had 10 turnovers.
