The search for a star in the latest Warriors' victory ended in a familiar place, at the typically warm fingertips of Klay Thompson. The third-year shooting guard fired in a game-high 25 points, including 5-of-8 3-point shooting, to ensure the Warriors walked out of Oracle Arena on Saturday night with a 102-88 win over Utah. The victory lifts to 5-0 the Warriors' home record this season. "We have a winning mindset, which is to take care of business at home,'' coach Mark Jackson said. "So far so good,'' said guard Stephen Curry. "We're winning every game, playing pretty consistently for 48 minutes. We're having a couple dry spots, but that's going to happen. You've got to just figure out how to keep the gas pedal down.'' That's where Thompson came in. When the Jazz cut to seven what had been a 17-point Warriors lead (53-36) in the third quarter, Thompson nailed a 3-pointer to push the margin back to 10. When Utah cut it from 15 to 10 (87-77) in the fourth quarter Thompson hit a pullup jumper and another 3-pointer to move it back to 15 and pretty much lock up the victory.
