Warriors 115-105 Clippers – NBA Warriors end losing run
Steph Curry bagged a double-double with 38 points and 11 assists in the Golden State Warriors‘ comeback win over their Pacific Division rivals Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night.
At the beginning of the third quarter, the Warriors were down 21 points but Curry got 19 of his 38 in the third to cut the deficit to six going into the final 12 minutes.
In the fourth, the Warriors put on a show and ran out 38-18 victors in the quarter to take the game 115-105.
Curry hit nine three-pointers, becoming the first player to achieve this in 50 different games.
The triumph gives Golden State a winning record (5-4) this season and ended a four-game losing streak against the Clippers, who had beaten them just two nights previously.
In the crucial fourth quarter, star point guard Curry was ably supported by Eric Pachall, Brad Wanamaker and Kent Bazemore, who all made important baskets, and most notably of all by Andrew Wiggins, who finished with 16 points and six boards.
The Clippers were led by Paul George and Kawhi Leonard, who put up 25 and 24 points respectively, while Congolese-Spanish power forward Serge Ibaka had 19 on nine of 12 attempts from the field, the team’s most efficient offensive numbers on the night.
Defeat means the Clippers‘ record is now 6-4, behind city rivals LA Lakers on 7-3, who came back to beat the Chicago Bulls 117-115 on Friday.
