KLAY THOMPSON HAMMERS HOME A DUNK ON KYLE SINGLER
Make it four in a row for the Golden State Warriors as they knocked off the Detroit Pistons 104-96 to open a six-game road trip.
Steph Curry led the way for the Warriors scoring 19 points dishing off nine assists and grabbing eight rebounds. But, the story of the game was the Warriors defense which held the Pistons to 34 points in the second half after allowing 62 points in the first.
Playing without David Lee, who is still under the weather with a stomach ailment, the Warriors leaned on 17 year veteran Jermaine O’Neal, who once again had a turn-back-the-clock type of night with 16 points and 10 boards. Andrew Bogut was back in the line-up but fouled out after scoring 4 points and grabbing seven rebounds. Klay Thompson scored 19 and Jordan Crawford scored 15 off the bench.
The Warriors move to 35-22 on the season and now sit in 6th in the Western Conference. The Warriors continue the trip in Chicago on Wednesday night where they hope to continue their success on the road against the Eastern Conference.
