AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Stephen Curry had 19 points, nine assists and eight rebounds, and the Golden State Warriors clamped down on the Detroit Pistons in the second half of a 104-96 victory Monday night.

Klay Thompson scored 19 points for Golden State, which has won four in a row. The Pistons have lost five of seven since firing Maurice Cheeks and replacing him with interim coach John Loyer.

The Warriors were still without David Lee, who has been dealing with a stomach flu. Andrew Bogut returned from a left shoulder injury and played 29 minutes before fouling out.

Gerg Monroe had 23 points for the Pistons, who scored only 13 points in the fourth quarter. The Pistons were only down 63-62 at halftime but couldn’t replicate that offensive success.
