Warriors vs. Pistons score: Klay Thompson scores 27, Golden State wins, 104-97

Klay Thompson poured in a game-high 27 points as the Warriors continued their improbable run despite their injuries.


Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson led all scorers with 27 points on 9-of-13 shooting, including 5-of-8 from the three-point line, as they prevailed, 104-97, on the road against the Detroit Pistons.

Thompson added four rebounds, two steals and one assist, and his backcourt mate, Stephen Curry, added 22 points, 10 assists and four steals and shot 4-of-6 from deep. Golden State moved to 11-7 with the win and continue to impress despite dealing with the absence of Andrew Bogut.

The Warriors had just 10 turnovers and forced 17 giveaways from Detroit, who were led by Tayshaun Prince's 24 points. Golden State led by as many as 20 points and collected nine steals on the night. The loss snaps a five-game home winning streak for the Pistons, who are now 6-14 on the season.

The Warriors continue their current seven-game road trip on Friday night as they travel to Brooklyn to take on the Nets.
