WASHINGTON -- There were no sports channel highlight shows the last time the Golden State Warriors won nine in a row in the same season. Air Force 1 Wholesale . Even if there were, the top-10 compilers surely would have been hard-pressed to find a Gus Williams-to-Rick Barry moment that looked anything like the off-the-backboard play executed Sunday night by Stephen Curry and Andrew Bogut. Klay Thompson scored 26 points, Curry and Bogut connected on a play worthy of the NBAs slam dunk contest, and the Warriors won their ninth in row, beating the Washington Wizards 112-96. The Warriors pulled away by turning a tie game at halftime into a laugher in the third quarter, opening the period with a 30-5 run that included a sequence in which Curry drove into the paint and sent the ball flying out of his hand and off the glass. The carom went right to a leaping Bogut, who timed the play perfectly for a dunk, then stared at his right hand with mouth agape as he ran down court. "I didnt know what was going on," Bogut said. "I didnt know if he was shooting or throwing a lob, but I kind of knew it was a bad shot if it was a shot. I just tried to get where the ball was coming." Curry had a got-away-with-it smile after the play. He described it as something that happened, well, accidentally on purpose. "I made a decision to pick my dribble up and look for Bogut. Whoever was guarding him made a decision to stay with him, and my only option was to stick my hand out at the last second to redirect it," Curry said. "Thankfully it hit the right spot on the backboard, and Bogue made a quick reaction to go up. Weve never done that before, so it was nice that it worked out." The Warriors hadnt won nine straight in the same season since a 10-game run from Dec. 6-23, 1975. They also had a nine-game regular season winning streak that overlapped the 1990-91 and 1991-92 seasons. Golden State is 5-0 on its season-long, seven-game, 13-day road trip and moved into a tie with the Los Angeles Clippers atop the Pacific Division. The last time the Warriors led a division this late in season was on March 2, 1992. "It puts into perspective the history of this franchise, and how far in a short period weve been able to turn it around," Golden State coach Mark Jackson said, "with great moves by ownership, by management, spectacular players that have bought in. And now the thing is sustaining it." Curry and Thompson topped John Wall and Bradley Beal in the battle of the two highest-scoring backcourts in the NBA. Curry scored 14 points on 5-for-17 shooting, but the leagues most turnover-prone player had 10 assists and only two giveaways. Thompson was 9 for 14 from the field, including 6 for 9 from 3-point range. David Lee added 21 points and 11 rebounds, and Bogut finished with 15 points and 11 rebounds. Wall had 14 points and 10 assists, but he shot 4 for 11, including 1 for 5 in the crucial third quarter. Beal, who remains on a minutes restriction because of a left leg injury, scored nine points and 4-for-15 shooting. The Wizards made only 6 of 21 shots in the third quarter, and they hit bottom when Nene committed two backcourt bad-pass turnovers in a span of six seconds. "Awful," Washington coach Randy Wittman said. "The third quarter? Until we can learn to play through missed shots and not zap your own energy and the energy of your teammates, were going to play like that. Were too much right now a team of front-runners." Nene scored 14 points for the Wizards, who have lost three straight and four of six. "Were not coming out with energy," Beal said. "I think sometimes we feel like were down 20 when its a tie game." NOTES: Warriors F Draymond Green sprained his left ankle and is day to day. ... There was a bizarre call in the first half when Wall crashed into Bogut in the lane. Bogut was initially whistled for a block, but officials conferred during a timeout and ruled that fouls were committed by both players -- leading to a jump ball at centre court. ... Jackson on whether hes developed any superstitions during the winning streak: "I dont believe in superstitions. I call it stupid-stition." Air Force 1 Mens On Sale . Both sides came closest to scoring in the first half, when Roma had a goal from Mattia Destro waved off for offside and Inters Rodrigo Palacio headed high. "A draw was a fair result. Neither squad had many chances," Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic said. Air Force 270 China .

But thats just one of the talking points. Here are five more ahead of the Delhi showdown.Will Boult or Southee return? Prior to the tournament seamers Trent Boult and Tim Southee were among the first names on the New Zealand team sheet. That all changed when they played India on a turning track in Nagpur, gambling on a spin-dominated line-up that saw Ish Sodhi, Mitchell Santner and Nathan McCullum play star roles. But on a Delhi pitch where England have favoured pace, will New Zealand shuffle the deck again and be tempted to hand one or both of their senior bowlers a first game of the competition?

But it has not quite happened for him so far. He has completed his four-over allocation just once in four matches and been hit for a total of 10 sixes - joint most in the tournament alongside team-mate Moeen Ali. He has to find a way to assert himself on proceedings if England are to peak.Root v Williamson New Zealands captain Kane Williamson piles on the runs By common consensus Joe Root, Kane Williamson, Virat Kohli and Steve Smith represent the vanguard of modern three-format batsmanship. The first two will face off in Delhi and, while it would be simplistic to reduce the match to a simple head-to-head, the pair do shoulder big burdens. Whichever players best marshal their sides innings could well go a loong way to determining the destination of the match. Air Force 1 Blue Outlet. The tossEngland have chased just once in the tournament so far, fearlessly knocking off a tournament record 230 against South Africa. Their record of defending is less impressive, battered into submission by Chris Gayle in their opener and taken to the brink by Sri Lankas Angelo Mathews. Surely Eoin Morgan will feel most comfortable pursuing, making the toss vital. The possibility of dew must also be considered. England struggled to keep the ball dry on a slick outfield against the West Indies and forecasts suggest it may be warm enough for those conditions to be replicated.Hales to hurt Black Caps? Alex Hales hits out against West Indies in Englands first World T20 Alex Hales is a former world No 1 in T20 cricket and remains the countrys only centurion in the format. But he has yet to catch fire in the competition so far, making 28, 17 and 0 as well as missing the Afghanistan game with a bad back. But he is a player who can be lethal once the ball begins to find the middle of the bat and will feel he owes the side one of his special nights. If he manages one, Englands prospects will soar with his strike-rate.Watch England take on New Zealand live on Sky Sports 2 from 1.30pm Wednesday, on Sky Sports 2.
