SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Stephen Curry had 31 points and eight assists, Andrew Wiggins made a career-high eight 3-pointers on the way to 28 points, and the Golden State Warriors beat the Orlando Magic 126-95 on Monday night.

Wiggins scored 17 of his points in the third quarter, knocking down three straight 3s over a span of 1:14. He finished 9 of 17 from the floor to help Golden State bounce back from having its 11-game home winning streak snapped in a 112-107 loss Saturday night to San Antonio.

Curry swished a half-court shot to beat the first-quarter buzzer and wound up with seven 3-pointers while shooting 8 of 16. Jordan Poole struggled to find his shot, going 4 of 15 for 12 points and contributing seven assists and seven rebounds.

Gary Harris scored 17 points to lead the Magic, who lost for the ninth time in 10 games.

Cole Anthony had a tough sequence late in the second when he committed a loose ball foul, turnover then was whistled for a technical that allowed Curry to score five unanswered points – a 3-pointer and a pair of free throws for the technical.

That burst helped the Warriors build a 65-44 lead at the break and they kept pushing in the third. Nemanja Bjelica added 10 points off the bench.

Wendell Carter Jr. added 14 points and 12 rebounds for Orlando.


The Warriors have held opponents below 50% from the field for 26 straight games dating to last season, limiting the Magic to 43.4% (33 for 76) — 11 for 38 from deep.


Magic: The Magic were outrebounded 43-38. … Orlando has lost nine straight on Golden State’s home floor since a 102-94 victory Dec. 3, 2012. … The Magic have a seven-game road losing streak.

Warriors: G Klay Thompson will stay home from the next road trip and continue his rehab from surgery for a torn right Achilles. … Otto Porter Jr. returned after sitting out Saturday to manage a left foot injury. … Swingman Andre Iguodala, still dealing with soreness in his right knee, missed his 10th straight game but is back on the floor for practice work and that’s considered encouraging progress. “I think he’s going to play on this upcoming trip. He’s doing a lot better,” coach Steve Kerr said. “He’s made great improvement and should be playing soon.” … Bjelica scored in double digits for the fifth time. … Rookies Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody were back up from the G League Santa Cruz Warriors and played, with Kuminga scoring nine points in 12 minutes.


Magic: At Sacramento on Wednesday night having lost six of the last nine overall vs. the Kings, but with wins in eight of their last 13 played in California’s capital.

Warriors: Host Portland on Wednesday night having beaten the Trail Blazers at home 118-103 on Nov. 26.
