Post game take it to the dome thread: Golden State wins big
Eight Warriors score in the double digits
144 points. A record-setting attendance record, and a Golden State Warriors team that suddenly looks on track again. Weird how getting healthy can do that. Golden State broke their three game losing streak in dramatic fashion by absolutely blasting the San Antonio Spurs and picked up just their fourth road win of the season.
We talked earlier about how hard it has been to judge this Warriors team that hasn’t been able to field their full roster all season. It’s a subtle addition, but when Kevon Looney picked up two quick fouls, it was Andre Iguodala that came off the bench first. Like Draymond Green, it’s hard to quantify his impact, but you sure do notice it when he’s around versus when he isn’t.
During his post game availability, Green was asked about the huge difference between this game and the last and he pointed towards focus and intention. It’s the magic formula that is going to save the season faster and more completely than any potential trade.
Of course, there’s two sides to every game, and the Warriors were certainly helped by the Spurs paltry defense. Even so, this is the sort of maximum dominance that this dynasty has been built on. It starts with Curry drawing so much attention that it breaks defenses - and then tonight we got to see what happens when the rest of the team is hitting shots and taking advantage of those holes that Curry causes in the defenses they face.
So many things looked better it’s hard to know where to start. This is the Warriors team that had a lot of people excited in the preseason.
Grab your drinks and desserts, curl up somewhere warm, and bask in this win.
LOOK AT THE OLD FELLA GO!!
