Post game party thread: it's back! You have to be good to beat the Warriors!
No more give away games, Golden State is handling business
Wow, what a night! The Golden State Warriors are still dealing with all sorts of issues, but for the second game in a row it really felt like their opponent has to play well to win — no more giveaways from an overly generous, sloppy Warriors squad. They are back back.
It all started with the pregame, where Andrew Wiggins cemented his spot as an NBA All Star… but wait, not just an All Star, one of the starters on the All Star team. The stuff that everyone dreams about achieving as a kid.
As usual though, on court, it all starts with Stephen Curry (also an All Star). He poured in 29 points (6 of 10 from deep), 8 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals to propel the Dubs to victory.
I actually missed most of the game by somehow recording a screen that says “this game is blacked out” but caught up in the third quarter, where Golden State absolutely demolished the Minnesota Timberwolves.
I can’t wait to read about this game. Great night, great team, and one hell of a great group of guys to root for.
But for me, the most important aspect of this entire team right now is proof of concept. Can the core carry this supporting cast to a title? I’ve seen title teams do more with less, that’s all I’m saying.
As always, please forgive the brevity. This is just a short post to whet the appetite until our experts come back in the morning with more high quality DNHQ coverage of the team we all love to watch.

Alright, all fears of Curry being over the hill and Klay being permanently diminished by injury are now gone for me.
Even Poole's "benching" funk is gone.
What a great time to be a fan.
