WIGGINS WORKS THE THIRD
Andrew Wiggins hit his stride in the third quarter, posting eight of his 12 points to open the frame and give the Dubs their first lead of the night (64-62).
KUMINGA OFF THE BENCH
Warriors rookie Jonathan Kuminga posted 19 points and seven rebounds, recording double figures in his fourth consecutive game. Over the last ten games, the first-year forward has averaged 10.3 points, shooting 49.2 percent from the field in that span.
The Warriors were shorthanded entering Sunday’s contest, playing without Stephen Curry (right hand soreness), Gary Payton II (lower back tightness) and Dryamond Green (left calf tightness). Green will receive physical therapy in the coming days and will continue to be monitored by the team’s medical and training staff.
The Warriors wrap up the road trip (1-3) and make their way back to Chase Center to tip-off a seven-game homestand starting with a matchup against the Detriot Pistons on Tuesday.
