San Francisco – No shooting slump tonight, Stephen Curry who scored 18 points and six other players scored in double digits. The Warriors played their best offensive game since Draymond Green has been out. Golden State dominated the Dallas Mavericks 130-92.
Rookie Jonathan Kuminga put on a show in the fourth quarter with three dunks and four three’s. He scored 22 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. The ball movement was at it’s best since Klay Thompson’s return.
“This was Klay’s best game in terms of patience and allowing things to happen,” said head coach Steve Kerr. “He wasn’t forcing it at all.”
Thompson finished the night with 15 points and six assists. Not bad for Thompson who sat out back-to-back games due to soreness in his left knee. Thompson who scored 2 points in the first quarter hit three consecutive 3’s, call it a comeback!
Golden State aslo played outstanding defense, they held the Mavericks to 35% from the field. Luka Doncic led with 25 points and 7 rebounds. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 10 point in 10 minutes but was carried off the court in the second quarter after going down with a broken fifth metatarsal bone in his left foot.
Bay Area native and Dallas head coach Jason Kidd said, “he just got the news about Hardaway Jr. after the game and was sad to hear about his player’s injury. It’s never good when you lose a guy, especially one who means so much to this team.”
“That’s just bad luck,” said Doncic on Hardaway’s injury. “He’s disappointed. Every time you get injured you are sad so we try to cheer him up.”
