MIL­WAU­KEE (AP) – Klay Thomp­son and Stephen Curry each scored 20 points, and the Golden State War­riors wrapped up a five-game trip with their third straight win, beat­ing the Mil­wau­kee Bucks 105-95 on Fri­day night.

An­dre Iguo­dala added a sea­son­high 15 points for Golden State, which pulled away in the sec­ond half with an­other hot stretch from the 3-point line. The War­riors went 6 of 9 from be­yond the arc in a sixminute stretch that started with Curry's 3 with 3 min­utes left in the third quar­ter to build an 11-point lead.

Curry and Thomp­son were each 4 of 9 from 3-point range. The War­riors shot 41 per­cent (19 of 46) from long dis­tance, putting on a clinic in crunch time against the Bucks, the league's high­est-scor­ing team.

Mil­wau­kee couldn't keep up with Golden State's bar­rage, shoot­ing just 7 of 39 (18 per­cent) from 3-point ter­ri­tory — too many misses in spite of scor­ing 26 points off 18 Golden State turnovers.

A game of fits and starts typ­i­cally had the War­riors build­ing a three­p­os­ses­sion lead, only for the Bucks to an­swer and get within a bucket. Golden State would jump ahead again as the teams traded runs.

The War­riors went ahead to stay af­ter Curry's 3 an­swered Er­san Ilyasova's bucket that briefly gave the Bucks a 74-72 lead to cap 12-2 run.
