KEVIN Durant had 29 points, nine assists and six rebounds as the Golden State Warriors won their 10th straight game with a 109-85 victory over the injury-ravaged Los Angeles Lakers 109-85 on Friday night (Saturday, Manila time).

Stephen Curry added 24 points while Klay Thompson scored 18 for the Warriors in their second win in three days against the Lakers. Draymond Green recorded 12 points and eight rebounds before a bruised left ankle forced him to leave the game in the third quarter.  

Jordan Clarkson had 20 points for the young Lakers, who missed injured starters Julius Randle, Nick Young and D'Angelo Russell.

LA has lost four of its last five games in a tough stretch against heavily favored opponents.

The Warriors' last defeat was a 20-point upset at the hands of the Lakers last Nov.7. Golden State has since gone on a tear. The Dubs topped LA with a 43-point drubbing on Wednesday.
