With 37 points, 7 rebounds, and 7 three-pointers made, Stephen Curry went on fire again to lead the Warriors past the Sacramento Kings.
“Incredible, man,” Green said of the two-time MVP. “It looked like the rim is the size of the ocean, literally.”
Curry’s April totals surpassed James Harden’s NBA record of 82 in November of 2019.
Draymond Green went versatile as usual, scoring only 8 points but contributed 13 assists and 14 rebounds. The forward of the Warriors also went active on the defensive side as he stole a possession from the Kings and blocked a shot.
Kelly Oubre Jr. added 19 points from the bench and had 7 boards. Wiggins had 13 while Toscano-Andersor had 10.
Meanwhile, the Kings’ center, Holmes, came back in this game after missing 5 games due to a strained right hamstring. The big man chipped in 11 points and 5 rebounds for his team.
Harrison Barnes guided the Kings with 23 points in familiar grounds against his old team. The former Warrior also had 7 rebounds and made 5 three-pointers.
Haliburton had an excellent game against the Warriors, scoring 24 points and dishing out 8 dimes. The agile guard, Buddy Hield, contributed 25 markers, 6 rebounds, and made 6 of his 8 attempts from beyond the three-point arc.
The Sacramento Kings played well, but it was not enough to bring down the Warriors and the brilliant shooting of the 2-time MVP.
“We had our chances,” Walton said. “We missed some free throws. We had some looks that we could have scored on, but overall a really good game by our team tonight.”
The Warriors advance to 31-30 and improve to 19-10 in their home court while the Kings drop to 24-36.
