Curry close to the triple-double in the ninth straight victory of the Warriors

Stephen Curry narrowly missed a triple-double in the Golden State Warriors’ ninth straight victory on their visit to the OKC Thunder arena. The All-Star point guard had 18 points, 10 assists and 9 rebounds to prevail by a final score of 110 to 98.

Steve Kerr’s men are not allowing themselves a break, and in the absence of the injured Draymond Green, they are finding stability in both their offense and defense. Also, thanks to their impressive winning streak, the Oaklanders are keeping an eye on the NBA leader: the Phoenix Suns (43-10).

Meanwhile, Klay Thompson continues to get in tune for the final stretch of the regular season, and he went up to 21 points in close to thirty minutes. It is his twelfth match of the course after missing almost two years from the courts due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee.

Thompson hit two key 3-pointers down the stretch that were vital for the Warriors. “It’s been great to see him hit those two three-pointers. It’s fun to have him back out there, and he looks great. He moves very well. It’s fun to be able to play with him,” Steve Kerr told ESPN.

It should be noted that up to five players reached double digits in scoring for the Warriors. In addition to Curry and Thompson, his teammate Andrew Wiggins had 15 points and 5 rebounds; rookie Jonathan Kuminga had 16 and Jordan Poole had 11 points.

In the Thunder the annotation was also fairly distributed with Lunguentz Dort with 26 points; Darius Bazley with 20; Josh Giddey with 16 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists; Tre Mann with 11 points and reserve Kenrich Williams with 12 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists.

“He’s so good at throwing the ball that I feel like my hand didn’t do anything to him. It’s like you have to bet against him for failure. There are some players who are so good that they don’t even see you,” Dort said of Thompson’s decisive action.
