Warriors Clobber Cavs Late, Butler Bests Wizards

Jonathan Grant | November 19th, 2021

The Golden State Warriors just won’t slow down at the moment. Even when they seem to be down and out as they were against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday night. Trailing by 13 after three quarters, and with Steph Curry playing despite a hip that’s causing him problems, they found a way by crushing the Cavs in a ridiculously one-sided fourth quarter.

Golden State of Mind

The Warriors scored 36 points and allowed just eight in that final 12 minutes, consigning the Cavaliers to an extremely disappointing loss. The 104-89 win saw Curry drop 40 points, with just one coming from the free-throw line, further bolstering his early-season MVP case. Darius Garland had 25 for the Cavs, who fell to 9-8 with the loss. The Warriors improved to 13-2 with the win. Meanwhile, the Miami Heat were taking on the Washington Wizards down at South Beach, and they were grabbing themselves a win, defeating their visitors 112-97 on the back of 32 points from Jimmy Butler. Bradley Beal led the way for the Wizards with 30 in the loss, and that leaves Miami marginally ahead of Washington in a very tight Southeast division race at this early stage.
