DeMarcus Cousins led the way with 19 points and 11 rebounds, while two-time MVP Steph Curry chipped in another 15 points and seven assists. The Warriors knocked down 13 three-pointers on just over 36 percent from deep. Indiana's leading scorer was Tyreke Evans, who poured in 20 points off the bench. Young also offered a bright spot for the Pacers, shooting 7-of-13 for 18 points and seven rebounds. However, the remainder of Indiana's starting lineup combined for just 18 points, leading to a stagnant offensive night for the Pacers. Golden State will host the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday, while Indiana will return home to take on the Denver Nuggets on Sunday.
