If Curry sits out this game-he rolled his left ankle against Oklahoma City on Saturday and is listed as questionable for Tuesday, according to Carl Steward of the Bay Area News Group-the Hawks figure to have a puncher’s chance of dealing Golden State its first home loss since January 27, 2015.
Bogut was on the receiving end of a string of alley-oop plays, capitalising on Golden State’s fluid ball movement en route to a season-high 19 points.
Klay Thompson stepped up in his team-mate’s absence, posting 26 points for the Warriors (54-5), who claimed consecutive overtime wins.
With an National Basketball Association record on the line, the Warriors still don’t know if they’ll have star guard Stephen Curry or forward Andre Iguodala on Thursday night for their highly anticipated rematch with the Oklahoma City Thunder at Oracle Arena.
Curry said he would play as long as he can help the team without risking further injury. If the reigning MVP is able to suit up, however, the Hawks could be in dire straits, particularly since Curry has dropped 40 or more points in three straight games and has knocked down at least 10 triples in back-to-back contests.
SchrÃ¶der chose one of the worst of several bad options on the next possession in firing a Curry-esque 30-footer, and Thompson eluded foulers after a timeout to close out Golden State’s 109-105 win. Millsap missed a 3-point try with 24.3 seconds left, and holding the final possession, Thompson drove the key and got a good look on a fadeaway jumper that rattled out, Bogut had a desperation hook at the buzzer that missed and the game into overtime.
“We move the ball so well, but a lot of times, he makes a play to someone, who makes a play to someone, and so on and so forth”, Bogut said.
His clutch shot meant plenty three days after his halftime outburst in Oklahoma City and ensuing apology.
“We’re not going to do anything insane, obviously”.
Don’t get it twisted, he’s just a guy that hates losing. The Warriors are 2-5-1 against the spread in their last eight games and that’s with Curry in the lineup.
The Trail Blazers have now won 18 of their past 22 games.
“I said, ‘How many home wins in a row is that?’ And everybody had a blank stare on their face, so our guys have no clue how many we’ve won in a row”, he said.
Twenty seasons ago, each team averaged 5.9 made 3-pointers per game at a 36.7 percent clip.
The Warriors continue their chase towards history against the Hawks.
Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors haven’t lost at home in over a year.
Curry was a talented college player, but nothing about his three seasons with Davidson or early years as a pro suggested he would suddenly vault, in his mid-20s, onto the same plane as basketball’s true greats.
His latest zip code-buster propelled the Warriors to a 121-118 victory over the Thunder in a regular season classic on Saturday that was ESPN’s highest-rated non-Christmas Day regular season game since 2013.
