BOSTON (AP) - Klay Thompson and David Lee scored 18 points each and the Golden State Warriors went a season-high 14 games over .500 with a 108-88 romp over the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night.

The Warriors scored the first six points, led 12-2 with just over five minutes gone and stayed ahead by at least 20 points throughout the second half.

Golden State had an easy time against one of the NBA's worst teams one night after beating one of the best. Thompson's 12-foot turnaround with 0.6 seconds left had given the Warriors a 98-96 win at the Indiana Pacers, the league's top team at home.

Former Celtic Jordan Crawford had 15 points and Stephen Curry added 14 for the Warriors (38-24), who won for the seventh time in nine games.
