Andrew Wiggins took over in the second quarter, scoring 13 points in the second quarter to give the Warriors a 19-point advantage going into the locker room at halftime.
As the Warriors cruised to victory, Wiggins registered a season-high 31 points on 12-of-18 shooting from the field. Wiggins drilled six triples from beyond the arc for the second time this season.
With their 124-107 win over the Clippers, the Warriors have now rattled off eight straight wins at home.
