The Warriors got back on the winning track on Tuesday, earning a 114-107 road victory over the Washington Wizards. Stephen Curry returned from a one-game absence to lead the Dubs with 32 points and eight assists without committing a single turnover.
Within the first few minutes of the game, it was obvious the matchup would have no shortage of action, as the Wizards opened the contest with a 9-0 run, equaling their largest lead of the evening. Stephen Curry didn’t hesitate to find his own tempo, however, splashing his first basket from behind the arc three minutes in and igniting the spark the Dubs needed to begin cutting into their early deficit. With the help of three consecutive jumpers from Marreese Speights and Curry's two additional three-pointers, the Warriors pulled ahead of the Wizards 30-28 at the end of the first.
The Dubs' momentum and strong defense continued through the second quarter, as they extended their lead to nine points six minutes in. Though the Wizards' 16 first half turnovers translated to 19 Warriors’ points, Washington’s 53.7 percent shooting from the field kept the game close, with Golden State taking a 54-52 lead into halftime.
