The Warriors have been nothing short of exceptional this season. Despite being shorthanded, they have found their balance as a team. Surprisingly, they are the best defensive team in the NBA at the moment. For their offense, Stephen Curry is playing at an MVP level along with valuable contributions coming from Poole and Andrew Wiggins.

Draymond Green and Garland refuse to let go

With the score at 90-86 in favor of the Warriors, both teams were desperate to have the ball. Hence, while chasing a rebound, both Green and Garland went up for the ball and saw themselves go out of bounds. However, they both got tangled up. This is where both started complaining to the referee, showing what the other person was doing and refusing to get free. The announcer compared Green’s action to Dennis Rodman as the two went their separate ways.

However, that seemed to be the push point for the Warriors as they closed out the game soon after. They went off on a 14-3 run from that point on and won their 13th game of the season. Curry led the way once again for the Warriors, while young Darius Garland continued to keep up his good run.

Garland ended the game with 25 points, 5 assists, and 2 steals. Kevin Love came up big off the bench, finishing with 17 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 assists. Rubio couldn’t produce much as he tallied just 10 points to go with 5 assists. Forward Dean Wade enjoyed a good game with 17 points and 9 rebounds to his name.

However, Stephen Curry wrapped things up with a 20 point 4th quarter. He finished the game with 40 points, 6 assists while shooting 56% from downtown. Draymond put on his playmaking boots and dished out 14 dimes in the 104-89 win.
