The Warriors (4-0) remain undefeated in Summer League play after Fridays 66-57 victory over the Chicago Bulls (0-3). The win was due in large part to the play of Warriors top pick Harrison Barnes who led the team with 20 points and shot 7-of-16 from the floor.

Tied for second with 11 points for Golden State were Charles Jenkins and Kent Bazemore. Bazemore also had an impressive seven blocked shots and eight rebounds, helping to secure the win.

Coming into Fridays game, the Warriors were victors in their first three contests, and have a chance at a perfect Summer League record with only one game remaining. The Bulls on the other hand are still looking for a win in the NBA Summer League.

It was the Warriors stifling defense that denied Chicago their first win. The Bulls were limited to just 25 percent shooting from the floor and converted on only 1-of-11 three-point attempts.

On the brighter side for the Bulls, forward Malcolm Thomas, who spent last season with the San Antonio Spurs, managed to record a double-double with 16 rebounds and 12 points. Guard Marquis Teague out of the University of Kentucky also scored 12 points and had a team high two steals.

The Warriors wrap up their Summer League schedule and look for a perfect 5-0 record Saturday at 3:30 p.m. against the New Orleans Hornets.
