The Golden State Warriors demolished the New York Knicks in their home-floor, 125-111.
The Warriors are now in a back-to-back victories and continue their chase for the number one spot in the Western Conference but another choke for the Knickerbockers.
After a competitive first-half action, the Golden State Warriors switched on their “Raining 3s” offense which eventually took the fire out from the New York squad.
Apart from their famous offense, the Warriors went active in their defense as they limit the scoring output of the Knicks to only 18 points in the third quarter while they shoot at 29% accuracy.
The momentum which Golden State built in the third period was carried over to the final quarter and never trailed until the last buzzer had sounded.
Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson had a combined scoring production of 69 points while Draymond Green added 10 points, 3 rebounds and six assists. Rookie sensation Jordan Bell returned back to Warriors roster and logged 3 points and 3 rebounds of action.
Since winning is no longer a priority for the Knicks as they already far from reaching the top 8 teams in the East, coach Jeff Hornacek focused on improving their young core.
Emmanuel Mudiay took the charge for the home squad with his 20 points while Trey Burke who scored back-to-back 26 points in their previous games chipped in with his 18 points while shooting an impressive 8-of-15 from the field.
