Warriors v. Wizards, NBA Score Update: Warriors Take 62-53 Lead at Halftime

The Golden State Warriors started to drop some shots on the Washington Wizards including a 9-0 run, effectively taking a 62-53 lead into the locker room at halftime.

Stephen Curry was lighting it up, scoring 15 points on 6-9 shooting to lead all scorers in the first half. Dorell Wright had 10 points on 2-10 shooting while Vladimir Radmonovic hit a couple of threes off the bench, finishing with 8 points. As a team the W’s shot 45.1% on 23-51 shooting.

The Warriors dominated the Wizards on the glass (yes the Warriors, that isn’t a typo) by a margin of 31-18 with David Lee and Andre Biedrins grabbing a team high 6 boards a piece in the first half.

As for the Wizards, a lot of their damage was done at the foul line, going 18-23 from the stripe as a team. If the Warriors could limit their fouls they could have a much bigger lead by now. Andre Blatche lead all Wizards with 12 points, with Nick Young adding 11. Rookie sensation John Wall has 8 points and 2 assists.

If the Warriors can keep from turning the ball over (only 3 TOs in first half) and limit their fouls, the should win this game easily. Can the Warriors keep the Wizards from getting back into the game in the 3rd quarter? Stay with SB Nation Bay Area to find out.
