The Warriors got back on the winning track Thursday night, defeating the visiting Brooklyn Nets 107-99 at Oracle Arena. Klay Thompson paced Golden State with 25 points, the fourth time in seven games he’s managed to score 25 or more. Draymond Green filled out the stat sheet with 17 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, while Andrew Bogut recorded a double-double with 11 points and 14 rebounds to go along with five assists and four blocks. All of the Warriors starters scored in double-digits for the first time since December 13 of last year, and every member of the Dubs to receive minutes scored at least four points.

WWE’s Hulk Hogan made a surprise appearance at Oracle Arena, and to the delight of all the Hulkamaniacs in Dub Nation, the professional wrestling legend took over the mic right before tipoff and delivered some inspirational words in true Hulkster fashion.

Hulk’s pregame peptalk, however, may have lit a fire under the Nets. Brooklyn, who played Wednesday night in Phoenix, burst out to a 36-32 lead at the end of the first quarter. They shot just under 61 percent from the field in that first frame, forcing the Warriors to make some defensive adjustments. Whatever was said between quarters worked, as the Dubs held Brooklyn to 35 percent shooting on 20 attempts in the second quarter, helping Golden State to a 66-55 lead at halftime.

The Warriors lead got as large as 15 in the third quarter, as Stephen Curry scored a game-high eight of his 17 points in the third frame, which concluded with a Warriors 87-75 advantage. Brooklyn hung close throughout the fourth quarter, getting within six points with 2:30 left to play, but Klay Thompson hit a clutch three-pointer, and the Dubs never looked back.

After committing 20 or more turnovers in each of their previous three games, the Warriors exhibited much better ball control, limiting their turnovers to 11 while forcing Brooklyn into 12 of their own.

With the win, the Warriors move to 6-2 on the season, and they’ll complete the three-game homestand on Saturday when they debut their new Slate Alternate Uniforms against the Hornets.
