Looks like the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors is back on their winning ways.
The Warriors extended their winning streak to three games after they beat the Milwaukee Bucks on the road on Friday night 105-95. The Warriors used tough defense and a 19 three pointers to beat the Bucks on their own home floor.
Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson scored 20 points and hit 4 of 9 from beyond the arc, and the Warriors wrapped up a five-game trip with a win. Andre Iguodala added a season-high 15 points for Golden State, which pulled away in the second half with another hot stretch from the 3-point line. The Warriors went 6 of 9 from beyond the arc in a roughly six-minute period that started with Curry’s 3 with 3 minutes left in the third quarter to build an 11-point lead.
The Warriors shot 41 percent (19 of 46) from long distance against the Bucks, the league’s highest-scoring team. The Bucks were just 7 of 39 (18 percent) from 3-point territory.
“Defense hasn’t been that great, so it’s good to finally put together a game where we hold an opponent to a not so great 3-point percentage,” Thompson said. “That did feel really good, I’m not going to lie.”
Giannis Antetokounmpo had 22 points and 15 rebounds, while Malcom Brogdon added 15 points.
