Cleveland has lost 16 of its last 17 to Golden State, with the lone win against its former rival coming in Game 4 of the 2017 NBA Finals.

CLEVELAND — (AP) Stephen Curry scored  33 points — topping 30 for a career-best ninth consecutive game — as the Golden State Warriors pulled away for a 119-101 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Curry, who made an NBA-record 29 3-pointers over the previous three games, is averaging 38.2 points during his run. Andrew Wiggins scored 23 points, Juan Toscano-Anderson had 20 points and Draymond Green added five points, 10 rebounds and eight assists for Golden State (28-28), which has won four in a row.

Collin Sexton scored 30 points and Jarrett Allen had 17 points and 14 rebounds for the Cavs (20-35). Cleveland has lost 16 of its last 17 to Golden State, with the lone win against its former rival coming in Game 4 of the 2017 NBA Finals.

The Cavaliers' loss puts them three games behind the Chicago Bulls for the 10th seed in the Eastern Conference, which will earn a spot in the NBA's play-in tournament for whoever gets it. The race for that berth will heat up Saturday night, when Cleveland travels to Chicago to face the Bulls.
