Green, Curry Lead Warriors To .500 Mark

Jonathan Grant | April 24th, 2021

The Golden State Warriors are back at the .500 mark… for now. That’s thanks to a 118-97 win over the Denver Nuggets on Friday night, they’re sixth in the past eight games. That might not sound all that impressive, but it truly is considering this team has been without its big names for much of the season. On this particular evening, the two familiar faces were the ones leading the way. Of course, Steph Curry provided plenty of scoring, dropping 32 points on 11-18 shooting from the floor.

On a special night in which fans finally returned to the building for them, the Warriors also saw Draymond Green, a huge key for them if they are to make an unlikely run deep into the playoffs, have a whale of a display. The stats show he only scored two points, but it’s what he did apart from that that really added up. He not only grabbed 12 rebounds for them, but he also dished out an incredible 19 assists. On top of that, he also kept Nikola Jokic relatively quiet, with the Denver star, and MVP front runner held to just 19 points, six rebounds, and six assists. Michael Porter, Jr. led the way for the Nuggets with 26 in the defeat. The Warriors are now 30-30 with the ‘W,’ placing them in ninth as things stand. The Nuggets fell to 38-21, but they are still in fourth at the moment by a comfy margin.
