Mark Jackson was right in the middle of Wednesday's postgame news conference when Stephen Curry walked by him and yelled, "Do you need anything else, Coach?"

The Warriors' head coach didn't even respond. His point guard already had provided him with more than enough for the evening.

Curry had his fourth straight 20-point, 10-assist performance to move into some elite point-guard company and help the Warriors tip off their season-long, seven-game road trip with a 104-97 victory over Detroit at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

The fourth-year guard had 22 points behind 4-for-6 three-point shooting, 10 assists, four steals and only one turnover in setting the tone for what could be a season-defining trip. The Warriors (11-7) have won six of their past eight games and eight of their past 11, but they had lost 25 of their past 30 at Detroit.

"I'm sure he's had a great stretch of performances before, but what I love about the way he's playing right now is that he's in total control out there on the floor," Jackson said of Curry.

"When things get crazy, there's no need for me to call a timeout, because I feel confident and comfortable with his ability to run this team. He's playing at a whole other level probably than he's ever played."

The Warriors also play Brooklyn, Washington, Charlotte, Miami, Orlando and Atlanta on this trip, but if they get the same type of performances they got against Detroit (6-14), they should do well.

Klay Thompson scored a season-high 27 points, including 19 in the third quarter, on 9-for-13 shooting from the floor. David Lee had 20 points, 11 rebounds and four assists, and Harrison Barnes added 10 points and five rebounds. The Warriors forced the Pistons into 17 turnovers, which led to 16 points.
