Warriors v. Wizards, NBA Score Update: Warriors Turn Up the Heat, Take 91-74 Lead After Three

The Warriors stretched their lead to 14 early in the 3rd quarter, getting to as much as 20, and never looked back as they stepped on the gas for a 91-74 lead heading into the 4th quarter.

Stephen Curry continued to scorch the box score, racking up 24 points and 5 assists, including 3-5 shooting from downtown. Dorell Wright has 14 while Reggie Williams added 9 from off the bench. Ekpe Udoh is using the extra minutes he’s getting from starting to get some serious swats, he has 3 thus far plus 6 points through three quarters.

Golden State Warriors beat writer Marcus Thompson had a very telling tweet about Monta Ellis and his current struggles from the field:

Monta’s wrist is not right. He doesn’t look comfortable on his J, though he keeps settling for it.

Seeing that Monta is 7-16 from the field for 16 points, it’s obvious that some of his shots aren’t going in out of his hand. If he is injured he sure is fighting through it. He took a seat in the third after picking up a technical foul, his fourth foul of the game. Monta is obviously frustrated.

For the Wizards it’s Nick young leading the way with 17, Andre Blatche has 16 while John Wall has 12. The Wiz have 8 turnovers leading to 11 Warriors points.

The Warriors need to keep up their intensity over the last 12 minutes if they want to keep the Wizards at bay and get their first win in the last 5 games.
