OAKLAND, Calif. -- Stephen Curry had career highs of 16 assists and 13 rebounds to go with 14 points and the Golden State Warriors beat the Phoenix Suns 115-86 Friday night to win their fourth straight game and match their longest winning streak of the season.

Klay Thompson scored 21 points for the Warriors, David Lee added 17 points and Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green had 11 apiece.

P.J. Tucker had 11 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Suns, who had won three straight and eight of their previous nine.

Curry, who played one minute of the fourth quarter, had a rough shooting night and made just one of six 3-point attempts. He more than made up for it with his passing and rebounding for his third career triple-double.

The Suns missed their final six shots of the first half, allowing the Warriors to open a 59-40 advantage heading into the intermission.

Lee, who added seven rebounds, had his consecutive double-double streak end at 10 games. Andrew Bogut was held to six rebounds, ending his career-best streak of 10-plus rebounds at 10 games.

The Warriors opened a double-digit lead in the second quarter and were never seriously threatened afterward.

The Suns, who last played Monday, scored at least 100 points in each of their previous eight games and were looking for their longest road winning streak in nearly three years.

The Warriors, who have been involved in a league-leading 12 games decided by four points or less, finished with their largest margin of victory since a 31-point win over the Los Angeles Lakers in the season opener.

The Suns suffered their worst defeat of the season.

The game was tied at 10-all midway through the first quarter. The Warriors never trailed after Curry hit a 3-pointer with 7:44 left in the period, and took a 28-22 lead into the second quarter.

NOTES: The Warriors allowed 40 or fewer first-half points to an opponent for the seventh time.. The Suns were 1 of 11 from 3-point range in the first half after making 29 of their previous 62.. The Warriors have won their first game after Christmas the past eight years and 12 of 13 overall.. The Suns fell to 7-2 on Fridays.. The Suns had made at least seven 3-pointers in each of the past 19 games, a franchise record.. The Warriors had a 22-10 advantage in fast-break points. The Suns entered the game as the NBA leader, averaging 19.
