NEW YORK — Stephen Curry had 27 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists in three quarters, Klay Thompson added 25 points, and the Golden State Warriors sent the frustrated New York Knicks to a fifth straight loss with a 126-103 victory Friday night.

Returning to the site of his sensational shooting performance of a year ago, when he scored a career-high 54 points on 11-of-13 shooting from 3-point range, Curry showed off his entire skill set in this one.

The NBA's assists leader made five 3-pointers, as did backcourt mate Thompson. The 6-foot-3 All-Star also grabbed nine defensive rebounds in his fourth career triple-double and third this season, bouncing back from a season low-tying five points on 2-of-10 shooting Wednesday in a 103-83 loss to Chicago.

Carmelo Anthony had 23 points and 16 rebounds for the Knicks.
