Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 49 points on 19 for 35 shooting in the 114-98 win over the Brooklyn Nets.
The Warriors continue to roll past teams on their schedule. They won their 26th consecutive regular season game dating back to last season. While it looked like the Nets had the upper hand over the Warriors at home leading the game late in the 3rd quarter, they always find a way to be down and come back for a win.
One of our biggest strengths is we are never out of the game and we are always one big run from putting the game away,” said interim coach Luke Walton according to Yahoo Sports. “We constantly encourage our guys to be on the attack.
The splash brothers played well against Brooklyn’s backcourt. Warriors power forward Draymond Green played another great game, finished with 22 points, nine rebounds and seven assists. He continues to be the heart of the team and a consistent scorer.
We have confidence. When the times get tough we continue to compete and rely on each other, said forward Green.
The Nets on the other continue to get blown out. On Friday they got blown out against the Knicks and the Warriors didn’t make it easy again. On the positive note Thaddeus Young finished with 25 points and Brook Lopez added 18 in the lost. They knew this was going to be a tough year with all of the trades made in the past. The Nets just hope that it ends sooner and push their focus on the offseason.
