Curry sizzles with season-high 10 three-pointers

Curry sizzles with season-high 10 three-pointers

With Curry on the court, the Warriors got back to getting easy looks for everyone else and scored easily, as opposed to their struggles the last few contests.

The league's 29th-ranked offensive club lost despite scoring 13 more points than they had in any other game this season. Even though the Warriors were without Stephen Curry, it was still one of the best games Charlotte played all season and arguably their biggest win of the year. Small forward Kevin Durant scored 27 points Friday and has failed to reach 20 only three times this season. Head coach Steve Kerr wanted to play Curry in four short spurts, as Golden State imposed a minutes limit on its star point guard.

"To get this win here against this team the first game of the road trip means a lot", Silas said.

Dwight Howard had his best game of the season and nearly recorded a triple-double as he finished with 29 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists. And to cap it off, Kerr said his wife looked a little better with Steph suited up on the hardwood. They were leading the National Basketball Association in scoring, averaging 117 points per game when Curry was sidelined. "Should be a good time for him to go for it", Kerr said after the team's 111-100 loss to the Charlotte Hornets on Friday. "We're going to definitely be a different team when he comes back". Meanwhile, Klay Thompson added 24 points and Draymond Green had 11 rebounds and tied a career-high with 16 assists.

Though Curry has been out since December 4, when he sprained his right ankle at New Orleans, the Warriors have won nine of 10 games while he was out of the lineup. "He made 94 out of 100 (three-point tries)".

The Warriors continued to push pace in the second quarter as they built up a comfortable lead, even without Green thanks to a first-quarter ejection. We know the champs can play elite defense with Curry, so that isn't something to be concerned about.

Curry scored 35 points in 23 minutes through three quarters.

"I just wanted that feeling again", Curry said, per ESPN's Chris Haynes. The Grizzlies have won two of their past three games, with the one defeat in that stretch coming on a last-second alley-oop dunk in Phoenix. "I just wanted to get some good reps, get up and down, see how my wind was and, surprisingly, I think my body felt way better than I expected".

Nonetheless, Kerr has provided good coaching during his three-year span with the Warriors.
