The shorthanded Warriors grind out a 113-104 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday night at Chase Center.
Though Memphis opened with a sizzling start, shooting 60.9 percent from the field and 75 percent from 3-point range in the first quarter, the Dubs cooled down the Grizzlies in the secondhalf with the squad going from trailing 53-52 at the half to what ultimately became a nine-point victory.
Stephen Curry splashed eight 3-pointers on his way to 46 points, four rebounds and four assists. The two-time MVP scored 30 points in the secondhalf, including 15 points in the fourth quarter. The outing was the sharpshooter’s fifth 40-point game of the 2021-22 campaign and sixth game of the season making eight-or-more threes. Curry’s scoring outburst certainly fueled the final 12 minutes of the game, with the guard extending his 3-point streak to 155 consecutive games, just shy of his NBA-record (157).
The Dubs head Southwest for a Christmas Day matchup against the Phoenix Suns on Saturday (ABC, ESPN Radio, 2:00 p.m.).
