Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Golden State Warriors have looked invincible in the Bay Area since Christmas. So much so that Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook looked on as spectators for most of the fourth quarter. Stephen Curry had 19 points, nine rebounds, six assists and four steals as the Warriors routed the Oklahoma City Thunder 117-91 on Monday night. After a 100-86 loss to the Clippers on Los Angeles on Dec. 25, Golden States third defeat in five games, the Warriors have rattled off four straight home wins. Theyve won those contests by an average of 25 points. Golden State, which went 15-of-28 from beyond the arc Monday, has shot 44.6 percent from 3-point range during its torrid stretch. The Warriors still have two games remaining on their six-game home swing, which concludes Friday against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Klay Thompson also netted 19 points, Harrison Barnes nailed all five of his long distance shots for a team-high 23 points and Draymond Green added 11 points and 13 boards for the Warriors. Westbrook sunk 11-of-14 from the foul line and finished with 22 points, while Durant posted 14 points and 10 rebounds, but was just 3-of-16 from the floor for OKC, which had won four of its last five games coming in. Thompson began red-hot from the floor, nailing his first four shots that included a pair of 3-pointers, and netting 13 points as the Warriors raced out to a 17-6 lead. Golden State led 34-25 following a quarter of play. The margin reached 22 late in the first half when Justin Holiday nailed a pull-up triple for a 62-40 Warriors cushion. Barnes knocked down a trey on Golden States final possession of the half to stake the Warriors to a 65-45 spread going into the locker room. Golden State was up 84-65 after three and cruised to the easy win in the fourth, leading by as many as 30 down the stretch. Game Notes The Warriors improved to an NBA-best 14-1 at Oracle Arena ... Curry has shot 50 percent or better in each of the last four games ... Holiday netted 12 points off the bench ... The Thunder shot just 30.6 percent (30-of-98) from the floor. Sheldon Richardson Jersey . The traditional pre-Masters event was halted early due to inclement weather. Harrington, who tied for first in 2003 and won in 2004, became the first three-time champion of the event. Trevor Siemian Vikings Jersey . The match, billed as a "next-gen" encounter between two of the sports rising stars, lasted two and a half hours. The loss kept Raonic, from Thornhill, Ont., from reaching a third fourth-round spot in Melbourne over the past four years. http://www.vikingsfansproshop.com/Vikin ... cat=1399.C. United to a 4-1 victory over short-handed FC Dallas on Saturday night. Sheldon Richardson Vikings Jersey . He just didnt expect them to be this good. Darrun Hilliard scored 19 points to lead No. 6 Villanova to a dominating 77-59 victory over Georgetown on Saturday, preserving the Wildcats hopes of a No. Randy Moss Jersey . -- Navy football player Will McKamey, who has been hospitalized since collapsing at practice three days ago, has died while in a coma."I really like the way hes into the game on the bench, hes finishing checks, hes engaged in what hes doing," Paul Maurice said Thursday as the Jets prepared to host the Vancouver Canucks. "He doesnt at all look like a player whos waiting for this experiment not to work and Im going to go back to where I want to. " Moving Byfuglien to the wing was one of former coach Claude Noels last acts as he tried to reverse a five-game slide that ultimately cost him his job. Maurice left Byfuglien there and suggests its working so well its not even something he thinks about. "Hes put up big numbers, scored overtime goals, done the things, so hes impactful in our game," Maurice said. The Chicago Blackhawks also tried Byfuglien at forward, although he has made it no secret that he prefers defence. He hasnt quit cold turkey and still covers the blue-line when the Jets have a power play and Byfuglien is still the third-highest scoring defenceman in the league with 40 points. When Winnipegs power play works (which isnt often, ranking 24th in the NHL) its usually Byfuglien whos partly responsible. He has a team-leading 19 power-play points. While forward might not be his first choice, he says its his job to do what hes asked to help the Jets win. "I dont know if Im really comfortable yet but getting there," he said after practice Thursday. "Playing with the same line helps and getting to know where they go, its better." He plays right wing on what is nominally the teams third line with Olli Jokinen in the middle and Devin Setoguchi on the left side. It has largely done what Noel hoped to accomplish, given the Jets three legitimate scoring lines that opposition teams have to be concerned abbout.dddddddddddd Byfuglien has had six points in the nine games since the change, more than his linemates combined. The shift has meant rookie defenceman Jacob Trouba, just 19, is now getting a lot of ice time and defence partner Mark Stuart has nothing but praise for the way hes handled himself. "Hes a kid whos got tremendous skill and hes going to be such a good player in the league, he already is," said the veteran, whose own play seems to have taken off lately. Stuart had points in each of the teams last two games and is seeing almost as much ice time as Trouba. "I think we complement each other," he said. "Hes such a good skater, he plays with the puck really well, he loves skating it up. "Im more of a stay back (defenceman) a lot more, I think defence first." Trouba has seven points over the last seven games and has moved into 14th spot on the rookie scoring list, despite having played only 38 games this season due to injuries. After losing 4-3 to the Nashville Predators on Tuesday, the Jets host Western Conference rival Vancouver on Friday night at the MTS Centre. January hasnt been kind to the slumping Canucks, who have won just four of the 14 games theyve played this month. Theyll arrive here having lost two straight to Edmonton and Chicago. But theyre still clinging to the eighth and final playoff spot in the conference. The Jets were 12th going into Fridays game and need to gain a lot of ground if they hope to avoid missing the post-season once again. WINNIPEG -- Dustin Byfuglien may have to scratch for things he likes about playing forward but his coach is certainly sold on the way the former Winnipeg Jets defenceman is performing when hes on the ice.
