Tuesday was a very good day for the Golden State Warriors. Following just their second defeat of the season last time out, they were able to take a 117-99 victory over the Brooklyn Nets. Steph Curry, because who else, was the main man for them, scoring 37 points in what proved to be an all-together easy win while Kevin Durant, a former Warrior, scored a season-low of 19 in the defeat. But perhaps that stuff isn’t the biggest bit of news.
The 12-2 Warriors also saw Klay Thompson return to 5v5 scrimmaging, potentially clearing the path for his return soon. The ‘old’ Warriors might indeed be back. Two other games also took place in the Association on Tuesday, and both of them ended up being fairly comfy wins as well. The Utah Jazz crushed the Philadelphia 76ers 120-85 at home, improving to 9-5 on the back of 27 points and five three-pointers from Bojan Bogdanovic. Joel Embiid did not feature for the visiting Sixers again. The Los Angeles Clippers also won by double-digits, seeing off the San Antonio Spurs 106-92. Paul George led the way with 34 points and fell a rebound short of a double-double while Reggie Jackson kicked in 21.
