Andrew Wiggins hit six 3-pointers en route to 31 points, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 40 more and the Golden State Warriors took advantage of the absence of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George to thump the visiting Los Angeles Clippers 124-107 on Wednesday night.

Curry finished with 22 points and Thompson 18, while Draymond Green chipped in nine points, seven rebounds and 12 assists, helping the Warriors win for the third time in their last four games.

Marcus Morris Sr. went for a team-high 19 points for the Clippers, who saw a three-game winning streak come to an end.

With Leonard nursing a sore right ankle and George out with a strained right hamstring, the Clippers never led after the seventh minute and fell back by as many as 29 in the first of four meetings with their Pacific Division rival this season.

Wiggins hit six of his 10 attempted 3-pointers, Curry four of his 10 and Thompson three of his seven, propelling Golden State to a 57-33 advantage from beyond the arc.

Wiggins also shot brilliantly from close range, going 12-for-18 overall, en route to his first 30-point night since one year and two nights earlier, when he contributed 32 to a Warriors home win over the Toronto Raptors.

Two days after he and three fellow starters sat out a loss at New Orleans, Curry also found time for nine assists for Golden State, which totaled 36. The Warriors began the night leading the NBA in assists at 29 per game.

Morris, Terance Mann and Norman Powell drilled three 3-pointers apiece for the Clippers, accounting for nine of the teamā€™s total of 11.

Mann and Powell each finished with 17 points, while Amir Coffey (13), Reggie Jackson (11) and Moses Brown (10) also scored in double figures for the visitors.

Powell grabbed seven rebounds and Jackson collected a team-high six assists for the Clippers, whose 124 points allowed were a season-high.
