MVP candidate Stephen Curry added a double-double of 16 points and 12 assists, as the Warriors recorded their 10th consecutive home win. Draymond Green finished with 18 points and Andrew Bogut grabbed 18 rebounds in the win.
Thompson sat out for Golden State, and is expected to miss about a week, with a sprained ankle. Justin Holiday started in his place, after impressing Steve Kerr with a 23-point performance at Denver on Friday night.
Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll each scored 16 points in a losing effort for the Hawks, who shot just 35.6 percent from the field. Atlanta came in red hot, being winners of 10 of their last 12, including 3 in a row.
With the win on Wednesday, the Warriors have now won 10 of 12, including 3 in a row. Sound familiar? They finished scoring 44 shots on 39 assists in front of the crowd of 19,596 at Oracle Arena. It was the 25th time this season that Golden State had 30 or more assists.
Atlanta won the last meeting between the 2 teams, 124-116 at home on February 6th. The Hawks knocked down 15 three-pointers that night, but they were without Kyle Korver, their top 3-point shooter, on Wednesday. Korver is expected to miss at least one more game with a broken nose.
Golden State still holds the NBA's best record at 54-13 and will host the New Orleans Pelicans tomorrow night. Atlanta fell to 53-15 overall and will visit the Oklahoma City Thunder tomorrow.
