The Golden State Warriors needed two overtimes to defeat the Boston Celtics, 124-119 on Friday (Saturday in Australia) to remain undefeated in the 2015-2016 NBA Season.

Playing without starters Klay Thompson and Harrison Barnes, both out due to ankle injuries, the Warriors were led by Stephen Curry who logged in 38 points, 11 rebounds and 8 assists.

Draymond Green also played well on both ends of the floor posting 24 points, 11 rebounds, 8 assists, 5 steals and 5 blocked shots. Andre Iguodala posted his own double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds with 5 assists while Festus Ezeli and Shaun Livingston added 12 points each.

The Warriors had an 82-75 at the end of the third quarter but the Celtics came back and made an 11-1 run to start the fourth quarter to grab the 86-83 lead with 8:52 to go in the game and even had the 99-94 advantage with under four minutes left.

However, Curry scored seven points in the next three minutes as the Warriors held the Celtics scoreless in this stretch to grab the 103-101 lead with 46 seconds to go in the game.

Isaiah Thomas, who 18 points and 10 assists, made a lay-up to tie the game and forced the first overtime. In the extra period, Kelly Olynyk, who had 28 points off the bench, scored on a pair of buckets late to keep up with the Warriors and the game went into second overtime.

The Celtics hang around with the Warriors in the second overtime but the Warriors were just too composed from the free throw line and they escaped with their 24th win of the season.

Dating back to last season, the Warriors have now won 28 straight games to match the second-longest winning streak in NBA history. The 1971-1972 Los Angeles Lakers hold the longest winning streak at 33 games.

Golden State will now face the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday when they end a long seven-game road trip that started Nov. 30. After the Bucks game, the Warriors return to Golden State for a five-game home stand against the Phoenix Suns, Bucks, Utah Jazz, Cleveland Cavaliers and Sacramento Kings.
