Everything seemed to return to normal Saturday night in the friendly confines of Oracle Arena. The Warriors found their groove and pushed their Western conference lead to 2 games. Golden State got off to a slow start as they trailed Milwaukee by 14 points (25-11). What followed was a declaration that the Dubs are back in business. Led by none other than Steph Curry the Warriors set out on a sharpshooting barrage. Steph scored 10 points in the 1st quarter to pull the Dubs to within 2 points of the Bucks (29-27). Shortly thereafter in the 2nd quarter Golden State pulled ahead for good. Klay sunk a three-pointer that finished off a 25-5 run(36-30). Milwaukee watched as the Warriors carved them up. Curry was spectacular as he finished with 28 points and went 6/8 on three’s. He only played in three quarters! Klay Thompson added 21 points, while Iggy contributed 15 off the bench. The Dubs finished shooting over 60% on the night. On top of that they shut down the Bucks holding them to just 40% from the field. Giannis Antetokounmpo was a non factor as he was contained to 9 points by the Warrior’s defense. Golden State surged to an impressive 117-92 victory against the Milwaukee Bucks. Up next the Warriors travel to OKC to take on the Thunder Monday at 5:00 PM.
