Game 2

Just one day later, the Warriors and New Orleans Pelicans met for the second time this season, this time with Golden State being the road team.

Even without superstar Anthony Davis, New Orleans made this one quite the battle.  The Pelicans were solid on both ends of the court and used a huge third quarter to help push this game into overtime.

It was a great effort, but it wasn’t enough as Curry’s eight points in the extra period lifted the Warriors to their 16th consecutive victory.  Perhaps more impressive was the fact that this was Golden State’s 10th straight win on the road.

Steve Kerr was surely happy to grab the win, but he noted some areas where the team certainly could have played better.

"“If we defend and take care of the ball, we have a chance. We didn’t do either one tonight,” Kerr said. “Thankfully, we’ve got really, really talented players and we have an incredibly strong, competitive desire to win.”"

Plenty of players filled up the box score in this one, with Curry leading the way with 34 points, including going 6-for-10 from three-point range.  He also tallied seven boards and seven assists.

Thompson added 29 points, four rebounds, three assists, and he also notched three blocks.  Andre Iguodala scored a season-high 20 points, and Draymond Green filled up the stat sheet with a line of 11 points, 13 rebounds, five assists and four blocks.

For the Pelicans, Tyreke Evans and Jrue Holiday carried the scoring load, finishing with 34 and 30 points, respectively. The win lifted the Warriors to a 21-2 record.
