What we learned as Steph, Warriors hold off OKC for big win

What we learned as Steph, Warriors hold off OKC for big win

The Warriors survived a late scare Monday evening to publish a 128-120 success over the Rumbling at Paycom Facility in downtown Oklahoma City.

Holding a comfy double-digit lead with the first half as well as the majority of the third quarter, the Warriors needed to dig in after the Thunder pulled within two in the fourth quarter.

Stephen Curry led the way, pouring in a game-high 38 points. Klay Thompson placed in 28 points, while Andrew Wiggins as well as Jordan Poole each added 15.

The Warriors shot 51.1 percent from the field, including 42.6 percent past the arc.

Here are three monitorings from Golden State’s third consecutive win as well as the initial video game of a three-game journey in the Western Seminar:

Steph happens

Curry has actually enjoyed a few trademark video games in Oklahoma City– possibly most especially his “double-bang” game-winning 35-footer in February 2016– and also he was superb on this night.

It had not been simply the 38 factors, on 12-of-20 shooting, including 8 of 14 from deep. There were the 12 helps, the eight rebounds, the blocked shot, as well as the plus-17 over 37 mins. His 3-pointer with 2:35 remaining compelled an OKC timeout as well as re-ignited the going stale Golden State violation.

Past those ordinary details, though, Curry was a picture of control and composure. When he got on the floor, the Warriors often tended to have the building.

Curry was specifically significant in the 4th quarter, properly putting the Thunder to rest on an evening when he passed Wilt Chamberlain to end up being the all-time franchise leader in made basket.

Non-Steph minutes were, um, problematic

The Warriors took a 94-85 introduce the 4th quarter, which train Steve Kerr opened up by providing Curry his usual rest. But as opposed to the common six minutes he only obtained a four-minute break.

That’s since the Rumbling opened up the fourth with a 13-6 run, closing the void to 100-98 with 8:22 remaining.

That compelled a very early return for Curry. With an upcoming back-to-back road established against the warm Timberwolves (11-4 over their last 15 games) and the conference-leading Nuggets, Kerr put a high top priority on this video game.

Kerr throughout his pregame news conference spoke of how well the bench is playing. He was right. The books have actually gotten better. The very early 4th quarter was an unwanted throwback to several of their work early this period.

Back to Warriors basketball of yore

Because failing to tape at least their standard 30 helps in four consecutive video games this month, the Warriors are refamiliarizing themselves with the idea of effective death.

They lost no time versus the Rumbling, calling 15 assists in the first quarter– a season-high for any kind of quarter– to take a 38-20 introduce the 2nd quarter. Golden State completed with 37 assists.

This adheres to a 40-assist video game in a win over the Raptors last Friday as well as piling up 33 assists in victory over the Grizzlies last Wednesday. The average over the last three video games: 36.7 assistants per.

Golden State balanced 27.3 helps in the abovementioned four-game stretch during which they went 2-2. They’re 3-0 in over the last three games.

Additionally, this violation looks a whole lot even more like that which the Warriors generally played during their five successive runs to the NBA Finals.
