Despite an ugly fourth quarter that saw the Golden State Warriors shoot just five of 20, they still managed to hang on to beat the New York Knicks 114-106. Stephen Curry broke a 97-97 tie with 3 minutes and 38 seconds remaining when he hit his seventh 3-pointer of the game and finished with 37 points to lead the Dubs. After back-to-back losses, this is a big win for the Warriors, who are 1-2 on their four-game road trip.
Golden State had a great start to the game, leading 20-12 less than six minutes into the first. The Dubs did a great job of sharing the ball in the opening quarter, with 11 assists on 13 made baskets, and led 36-31 after one. Unfortunately, the defense couldn’t hold up against the lowest-scoring team in the league. The Knicks began to push the pace and got some easy looks to come back and take the lead. New York dominated the glass in the first half, out-rebounding the Warriors 29-20, and took a 59-55 lead at the break.
The good news is that the Dubs came out strong to start the third. Led by Curry, Oubre, and Wiggins, Golden State went on a 23-6 run to start the quarter and rode that to take a 94-85 lead after three quarters. The Dubs managed to keep the Knicks at bay the rest of the way.
