OAKLAND –- The streak survives, barely.
The Warriors continued their run through the NBA, but this time they have to work extra for it, overcoming the resilient Brooklyn Nets 107-99 in overtime Saturday night at Oracle Arena.
The Warriors moved to 11-0 and continued their ongoing franchise record for wins to start a season.
Steph Curry scored a game-high 34 points, but was only 13-of-31 from the field. Four other Warriors scored in double figures, as Draymond Green finished with 16 points, Andre Iguodala had 15, Harrison Barnes 13 and Andrew Bogut 10.
Green had a triple-double, though, with 12 assists and 10 boards to go with his 16 points.
Brandon Rush, starting in place of Klay Thompson, scored eight first-quarter points but never scored again.
The Nets (1-9), who played Friday night at Sacramento, got off to a torrid start, shooting 68 percent in the first quarter and taking a 36-2 lead. Thaddeus Young scored 14 of his 22 points on 7-of-7 shooting in the opening period.
Though the Warriors for much of the night were haunted by an old friend, ex-Warrior Jarrett Jack -– who scored a team-high 28 points and kept the Nets in the game in the final minutes of regulation –- his late-game heroics were no match for the Warriors in OT.
Though Curry hit some clutch shots, the honor in this game goes to Bogut, who was nothing less than a tower of strength.
Bogut’s contributions are not always tangible, but they were on this night: 10 points (5-of-7 shooting), 18 rebounds, four assists, three blocked shots and two steals.
For good measure, he also did a terrific job of containing All-Star center Brook Lopez, who finished with 18 points on 8-of-21 shooting.
There were two, first one coming when the Warriors, trailing throughout and down by six (85-79) with 6:46 to play, pulled off a 9-0 run to go up 88-85 with 3:45 left. That provided the boost required to push the game into OT.
The second came in OT, which opened with the Warriors scoring the first 10 points and taking a 107-97 lead with 2:05 to play.
The Nets never again tied or took a lead.
Warriors: G Klay Thompson (back stiffness) was a late scratch. G Leandro Barbosa (family matter) is not with the team. F Kevon Looney (hip surgery) remains out indefinitely.
Nets: F Chris McCullough (R knee rehab) and C/F Willie Reed (R thumb ligament tear) were listed as out.
The Warriors return to action Tuesday night, when they play host to the Toronto Raptors at Oracle Arena.
