Thompson helps block the Suns

Klay Thompson led six Warriors in double figures with a game-high 34 points yesterday morning (Singapore time) as Golden State snapped a two-game losing streak with a 117-100 victory over hosts Phoenix Suns.

The Warriors, who have clinched the No. 2 seed for the Western Conference play-offs, used two hoops, including a three-pointer by Draymond Green in a 14-5 run to open the second quarter and distance themselves from the Suns.

Golden State wound up with their 15th consecutive victory over Phoenix.
