(13-7)
(2-15)
The Warriors closed out a 101-97 win in Washington Saturday night, starting a roadtrip with three consecutive wins for the first time since 2003. Stephen Curry finished with 22 points, marking a career-best seven-straight 20 plus performances while David Lee added in another huge double-double with 24 points and 17 boards. Klay Thompson did a little bit of everything, totaling 23 points, six rebounds and five assists. Carl Landry nearly missed a double-double with 12 points and nine boards for the Warriors, who will have a day off before taking on the Bobcats in Charlotte.
Mark Jackson
On David Lee, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson All-Star Consideration:
“Well to quote the legendary Kevin Garnett, anything is possible. These guys are very deserving, but we are not in this for personal recognition. We are in this thing on an assignment as a team. If those things happen so be it, it would be very deserving. I’m pulling for it but we are here to win as a team and continue to get better.”
On the win:
“We had an emotional victory last night in Brooklyn. We traveled and I know the guys were tired because I was tired this morning. At the end of the day they made plays, they made shots and we found a way to put together a string of stops, a string of possessions offensively where we executed and made plays. Just another big time victory for us.”
On the team's defense:
“We are built on the defensive side and we will put together a string of defensive stops. I’m not worried about our offense, I’ve never been worried about our offense. Defensively, we are good enough where we know when it’s time to put some stops together. We did it, we rebounded and dominated the boards and got our offense going, but our defense is what carried us.”
Stephen Curry
On the three-game winnin streak:
“We’ve got good momentum right now. The team’s playing well. We’re finding all sorts of different ways to win. We had to hold on when they were making all those crazy threes at the end, so I’m just glad we got the win tonight.
On changing the Warriors culture:
“We’re trying to change the culture and overcome a lot of things that we’re not used to. You’ve got to be able to perform at a high level night-in-and-night-out on the road and we’re playing well.”
David Lee
On the season:
“Every game is different. Our team is going into these games and believing we’re going to win. We just have to see how the game shakes out and different guys are stepping up every single night. We’re trying to just believe in one another, get stops and get rebounds. It’s working out well so far.”
On differences between this year and last year:
“A big difference this year was getting Draymond (Green), Carl (Landry) and Jarrett (Jack). That has given us some depth. We had a full training camp this year and coach has been able to get his basics implemented. The biggest difference from last year was rebounding. We were 30th last year, and we’re top five this year. We were getting stops last year, but the team would get the offensive rebound and put it back in. Those are the plays that break your back. We lost so many close games because of reasons like that last year. Meanwhile, this year, we’re doing a lot better job rebounding the ball and getting stops. Offensively, we have plenty of firepower, so it’s working out for us.”
On the team's mission:
“Our goal stays the same. We’re going to take each game individually. The next game we got a team in Charlotte that’s beat some of the best teams in the league. They’re good at home, and they smoked us last year by 50 points. We go into the next game with a great game plan, and great mindset, in order to repeat some of the things we’ve been doing.”
Klay Thompson
On starting the roadtrip 3-0:
“I think it’s our effort and unselfishness. We just share the ball well. We have to cut down on our turnovers, but no one is out there trying to put up numbers, we are just trying to get the win. We played real well tonight, started sharing the ball and talking on defense. Their record might not show it but they are a talented team and it’s not easy to win on the road. We came out here and took care of business.”
On differences between this year and last year:
“We got a toughness about us that we didn’t have last year. We don’t fold under pressure, like in the fourth I think we are 10-0 when we have a lead or something like that. We are just a lot more persistent as well. We might be down 10 or 15 points, but we hang in there and play good defense. Last year we talked about playing good defense but this year we are actually doing it.”
TWO DOWN, FIVE TO GO
The Warriors are off to a hot start on their season-long seven-game road trip, having gone 2-0 in the first two contests away from home. Following a 104-97 win at Detroit on Wednesday, the Warriors defeated the Nets 109-102 on Friday night. Today’s game against the Wizards will be the first of two matchups between the teams this season. The Warriors defeated the Wizards 120-100 on March 5, 2012, their only meeting of last season.
LAST TIME OUT
The Warriors put on an impressive performance in Brooklyn on Friday night, defeating the Nets 109-102. Stephen Curry went off in the second half, finishing with 28 points. David Lee had a monster game and posted yet another double-double with 30 points and 15 rebounds, his 11th of the season. Klay Thompson had 13 points and five rebounds, while Jarrett Jack scored 15 points and dished out eight assists of his own. Draymond Green also had his best game as a pro, registering six points and 10 rebounds, along with some scrappy defense.
NO BACK PROBLEMS
The Warriors are 3-1 on the back end of a back-to-back so far this season, and 2-0 on the road in such situations. They defeated the Clippers 114-110 on November 2, and won a nailbiter in overtime 105-101 at Dallas on November 19. The Warriors will look to continue this trend against the Wizards and beyond, as they play four more sets of back-to-back in December alone.
EARLY SUCCESS
The Warriors are opening some eyes across the league with their strong start to the season, which has resulted in some well-deserved recognition for the Warriors’ most likely MVP candidate. This is only the second time in the last 20 seasons the Warriors have started 12-7 or better through 19 games (also 12-7 in 2005-06). Perhaps even more notably, this is also only the fifth time in the last 30 years that the Dubs have won six of their first 10 road games to start a season. That’s certainly a pleasant development for a team that has struggled significantly away from home in recent seasons.
WASHINGTON SCOUTING REPORT
The early part of the season hasn’t gone nearly as well for the Wizards, who entered the season with high expectations, but have struggled in the early-going. Their 2-14 record ranks dead last in the league, although they have won two of their last four including a victory over the reigning NBA champion Miami Heat. A significant portion of their early struggles can be attributed to the absence of young phenom John Wall, who has been out all season recovering from a left knee injury. Brazilian big man Nene recently returned to the lineup after rehabbing a foot injury, and he has been a tough matchup for the Warriors in the past. Slowing him down will be a big key for the Warriors if they hope to continue their early success on this road trip.
Injury Report
GSW: Andrew Bogut (ankle rehab), Brandon Rush (torn left ACL) and Richard Jefferson (strained right calf) are out.

WAS: John Wall (stress injury left patella), Trevor Booker (strained right knee) and Trevor Ariza (strained left calf) are out.
