Warriors v. Wizards, NBA Scores: Curry Scores 29, Warriors Fend Off Wizards 106-102

The Golden State Warriors let a 20 point 3rd quarter lead wither down to 3 but behind Stephen Curry’s 29 points kept the Washington Wizards at bay, stealing a 106-102 win at the Target Center in Washington D.C tonight. With the win it stops the W’s four game losing streak while extending the Wizards’ to seven.

Monta Ellis had his moments during the game, finishing with 21 for 9-20 shooting. Reggie Williams had 11 off the bench, while Ekpe Udoh had 6 points, 3 blocks and 2 rebounds in his first start of the season.

Nick Young had 14 points of his 31 points in the 4th quarter including some late 3’s to keep the Wiz within striking distance, but Washington never regained the lead. Andre Blatche finished with 20 points and 9 boards, while rookie sensation John Wall had 14 and 6 assists.

The Warriors out rebounded the Wizards 54-40 including 14 offensive boards, something that is very rare for this W’s team. The Warriors also made it to the free throw line 34 times, another good sign for Golden State. As a team the Warriors shot 36-85 (42.2%) from the field, forcing 10 turnovers for 11 points as well as 25 fast break points.

With the win it moves the Warriors to 27-33 on the season. It was the first meeting between these two teams of the season, with the next coming March 29 at Oracle Arena. The Warriors now head to Boston to face the defending Eastern Conference champion Celtics at TD Garden on Friday.
