In the first quarter of this game, the Warriors started out hot, as Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson both connected on their first shots of the game. Unfortunately, the Bobcats’ backcourt of Gerald Henderson and Kemba Walker easily matched their intensity. David Lee, of course, continued his all-star like plays, which has lead the Warriors to so many wins this season. The Warriors were on an early 10-2 run. After some wrestling to jump out on top, the Warriors lead 31-23 at the end of the first.
In the second quarter, Andris Biedrins came in and gave the Warriors life. He saw extended minutes and finished with 7 rebounds, 3 blocks and 2 points. Pretty good numbers for Biedrins considering how he has been playing as of late. Draymond Green played surprisingly well offensively, and gave the Warriors that push they were looking for. From the second quarter on, the Warriors never looked back. Behind great bench play and great starters play, the Warriors were able to lead 58-49. Klay Thompson had 10, And Stephen Curry had 15.
In the third quarter, the Warriors started with some quick strikes that pushed their lead to 13. For once, the Warriors actually pounded another team on the offensive boards. Lee and Ezeli’s inside activity really helped the Warriors. Behind some hot shooting from Klay Thompson, a triple double for David Lee, and 8 three pointers for Stephen Curry, the Warriors easily put away the Bobcats. The final score was 115-100.
The Warriors next game is tomorrow against the Lakers… Uh oh!? The Warriors advance to 18-9 on the season.
