Golden State Warriors
The Warriors were lucky to steal a 119-115 win in Dallas. Golden State needed every one of Stephen Curry’s 11 triples and 48 points in the highly competitive match.
Curry took over at game end scoring the Dubs final seven points to seal the victory and did this while navigating five personal fouls.
The rest of Golden State squad hit eight of 26 from deep. Kevin Durant got bested on defense by a step back Luka Doncic triple to end the third quarter and picked up several fouls in the paint trying to guard DeAndre Jordan.
But while his shot wasn’t falling as smoothly as Curry he did collect 28 points and had the key defensive play at game end forcing Harrison Barnes to turn over the ball.
The win marks the fourth in a row for Golden State who continues to struggle to shut teams down defensively.
Draymond Green hurt his knee in the Dallas game but is listed as probable. Damian Jones is lost for the season with a torn left pectoral muscle.
Meanwhile, DeMarcus Cousins nears a return to the court potentially this week and will start when he does as per Steve Kerr.
While the Nuggets have spent the better part of the season dealing with copious injuries to core contributors Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray have kept the Nuggets in the win column.
With most of their players back healthy, however, once again it was Jokic and Murray who lifted Denver to victory over the Blazers.
The Joker just missed out on another triple-double scoring 40 points while adding 10 rebounds and eight assists.
Murray contributed 24 points playing through a shot to the face in the first half. He returned to hit the game-winning shot and ice the win at the charity stripe.
Trey Lyles (sprained right wrist) hasn’t played in two games and is questionable for Tuesday. Gary Harris (hamstring tightness) missed his fourth consecutive game and is also questionable for the Warriors game.
Isaiah Thomas is expected to make a return this month while Jarred Vanderbilt and Michael Porter Jr. remain out indefinitely.
