SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 26 (UPI) -- Stephen Curry hit four of Golden State's nine 3-pointers Wednesday and the Warriors came through with an unexpected 94-83 road win over Utah.
The Jazz had lost at home only twice this season, but they melted away in the second half to a Golden State team that has enjoyed a solid start to the campaign.
The Warriors won on the road for the 11th time this year, equaling their entire total from the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season.
Al Jefferson led Utah with 18 points and 10 rebounds.
Golden State took a 17-point lead into the fourth quarter and easily held off a late Utah rush.
