Steph Curry returns as Golden State Warriors reclaim top seed with win over Detroit Pistons


Stephen Curry scored 26 points on Sunday night as the Golden State Warriors shook off the embarrassment of a 35-point loss to the Dallas Mavericks one day earlier to turn back the Detroit Pistons 121-114.

The Golden State win, coupled with Denver’s loss at Indiana earlier in the day, allowed the Warriors (50-23) to move a half-game ahead of the Nuggets (49-23) in the race for the best record in the Western Conference.

The 50-win season is the sixth straight for the Warriors, their fifth in a row under coach Steve Kerr.
