Steph Curry didn’t get the call he wanted in the early stages of the fourth quarter. It turned out to be just what he and his team needed. Even despite a technical foul. That’s because the superstar exploded after getting ‘T’d up,’ scoring 13 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter to lead his team to a 105-90 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers.
The win, which saw Paul George get 30 for the opposing side in defeat, is the eighth straight for the Warriors and promoted them to 18-2 on the year. Meanwhile, there was more action on the docket in LA on the day as the Lakers played host to the Detroit Pistons in a grudge rematch of sorts. The Lakers let their play on the court do the talking as LeBron James scored 33 points in a 110-106 win that followed up the scuffle between the two sides last week. Anthony Davis also chipped in with a double-double, scoring 24 points and grabbing ten rebounds while Russell Westbrook had 25 to sink the Pistons to 4-16. The Lakers got back to .500 with the win.
