The Golden State Warriors continue to make NBA history with their win over the Pacers last night. The victory gives the Warriors a 23-0 record.
Golden State held a double digit lead for a majority of the game, but a late push by Indiana brought the Pacers within six points with less than a minute to go. However, a couple of late free throws from Stephen Curry and a defensive rebound from Draymond Green with ten seconds left in the game gave the Warriors the 131-123 victory.
Despite the close call near the end of the game, Stephen Curry said the game was never really that close. However, Curry did acknowledge that it is never good to lose a double digit lead.
Curry had a pretty good night, finishing with 29 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds. But the real MVP of the night for Golden State was Klay Thompson, who scored 39 points, his highest of the season.
Following the game, Thompson said it felt like he was due for a great game. Thompson has not scored more than 30 points all season long and his season average is only 18.2 points per game.
Thompson experienced a bit of a scare late in the game when he injured his ankle. However, after the game, Thompson said the injury does not appear to be serious and he should be back in action soon.
For the Pacers, the loss dropped the team to 12-8 for the season. The defeat marked the third loss in a row for Indiana.
For Golden State, the team will be back in action on Friday against the Celtics at TD Garden in Boston. Tip-off is set for 7:30 p.m.
