By MICHAEL WAGAMAN – OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Stephen Curry has sat out long stretches of the fourth quarter this season as Golden State piled up wins.
The NBA’s reigning MVP went to the bench much earlier than that against Phoenix after picking up his fourth foul midway through the third.
It turned out to be a blessing in disguise for the defending champions.
A rested Curry returned to the court and scored 15 of his 35 points in the fourth quarter, and the Warriors rallied from a nine-point deficit over the final 12 minutes to beat the Suns 123-116 on Saturday night.
“That, I think, threw us off for sure because I usually get to play the whole third quarter and I had to mix it up a little bit,” Curry said. “I wanted to come in and hopefully have an impact on the fourth quarter and use my fresh legs from the extended break.”
Curry made three of his seven 3-pointers in the fourth, including two as part of a 18-8 run to close out the game.
He capped his night with a behind-the-back pass to Shaun Livingston for a layup that helped extend the Warriors’ record home winning streak to 48 games.
Golden State (59-6) also stayed one game ahead of the pace of the 1995-96 Bulls, who set an NBA record with 72 wins.
“They were just picking us apart for three quarters and we finally joined the fight defensively in the fourth,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “We started challenging shots better and forcing some misses. That allowed us to get out and run.”
Marreese Speights added a season-high 25 points and nine rebounds off the bench, Klay Thompson scored 20 points and Draymond Green had 19 points and six assists.
