Post game party: Curry goes for 47 on his birthday as Warriors blow out Wizards
Draymond Green's return felt as good as expected
The Golden State Warriors got their heartbeat back and whomped the lowly Washington Wizards in Draymond Green’s first game back from his extended absence. Green did well in his limited minutes, controlling the game and pitching in a nice round statline of six points, seven rebounds, six assists — while being a plus 24 in his 20 minutes on court.
But tonight was about birthday boy, Stephen Curry. One night after he accepted an overly eager defense while his teammates put up big numbers, it was Curry’s turn to punish a team that couldn’t stop him.
The Warriors got plenty of help across the board. In addition to big nights from Curry and Green (look, he was on a minutes limitation, ok?!), Golden State got 20 points each from both Jordan Poole and Klay Thompson.
As always, pardon the brief article, DNHQ will be here for you in the morning with more coverage of tonight’s epic game. For now, we party!
