Recap

Steph Curry's three at the buzzer was off, and the Wizards escaped Oracle Arena with a victory over the Warriors, 88-85. John wall hit the big shot, sinking a three with about a minute and a half to go and the game tied at 85 all, and those would be the final points of the game. Bradley Beal came up huge in the second half, scoring 18 of his 20 points after the break. Nene added 16 points and 7 boards while John Wall had 15 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists. Steph Curry led all scorers with 23 points in the loss.

Key Moment

The Warriors, the fourth best three point shooting team in the league, got the ball down by three with just over six seconds to play. Wittman elected to play straight up instead of fouling. The play went to Curry, not surprisingly, and Ariza switched onto him. He played lock down defense on him, forcing him into a tough lefty shot which was way off the mark and the Wizards got the win.

Player of the Game

It was a tale of two halves for Bradley Beal. He had just two at the break, but caught fire in the second half, scoring 18. He was 4/7 from long distance and added seven rebounds and four assists.

Key Number

10-7. The Warriors are known for their three point shooting but the Wizards out-shot them from long distance. The Wizards hit 10/22 threes and the Warriors just 7/23.

Unsung Hero

Gortat struggled offensively, shooting just 2/8 from the field and finishing with eight points. Gortat did work on the boards though, pulling down 12 rebounds against one of the top rebounding front lines in the NBA.
