The Golden State Warriors finally won a game against the Houston Rockets, making it their second home victory of the year.
On Monday, November 20, Golden State Warriors beat Houston Rockets in the NBA 2023-24 season with a score of 121-116.
Stephen Curry scored 32 points with five 3-pointers, extending his latest NBA record. Klay Thompson on the other hand, broke out of his shooting slump with a season-high 20 points. The Warriors ended their six-game losing streak with a 121-116 win over the Houston Rockets on Monday night.
“We weren’t perfect but in this case you just need to win,” GSW coach Steve Kerr said. “That was the focus. Hopefully this is a good sign and we can get back on track,” he added.
Thompson entered the night shooting 15 of 42 over his previous four games but came out strong early against the Rockets with three 3-pointers and 12 points in the first quarter. He finished 7 of 16 and had five 3-pointers.
Chris Paul added 15 points to the score and 12 assists helping Golden State Warriors to its 12th consecutive win against Houston.
Meanwhile, Alperen Sengun had 30 points and 13 rebounds for Houston. Jabari Smith Jr. scored 17, while Dillo Brooks and Jalen Green each had 16 points.
Houston coach Ime Udoka blamed the Rockets’ defense for allowing Golden State Warriors to take several open shots.
“This is a team, the main team in the league, that takes advantage of those mistakes,” Houston coach Udoka said. “We were poor in our coverage for the most part. Our attention to deal was not the best,” he included.
Curry had a slow beginning in the game but made a four-point play late in the second quarter accompanied by two successful 3-pointers. He made his milestone fourth 3-pointer late in the third quarter to put the Warriors ahead 100-87.
