OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Isaiah Thomas scored 25 points, Kelly Olynyk added 17 points, five rebounds and five assists off the bench and the Boston Celtics beat the sloppy Warriors 99-86 on Wednesday night, spoiling Golden State’s lone home game in a nearly three-week span.

Splash Brothers Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined to shoot just 4 for 17 from 3-point range as Golden State struggled again without injured star Kevin Durant, who spoke before the game wearing a bulky brace on his injured left knee and using crutches.

Curry had 23 points, five rebounds and six assists, and Thompson scored 25 points as the Warriors’ 10-game home winning streak was snapped — nearly a year after Boston ended a 54-game home win streak for the Warriors.
