Golden State defeated Memphis 98: 101 at home, giving them a 1: 3 lead in the Western Conference semifinals thanks to Steph Cury’s 32 points.
Memphis had better statistics Monday night than Golden State; more shots, higher percentages, and fewer turnovers. Yet the Warriors were able to pull off a victory.
Curry brought Golden State back from a double-digit deficit in the fourth quarter with 18 points in the final 12 minutes. “Our offense wasn’t good,” Curry admitted, “but we knew what had to be done.”
