Dubs Rewind: Warriors beat Bucks to start their road trip
OAKLAND – The Warriors opened their five-game road trip with a 108-94 win over the Milwaukee Bucks, improving to an NBA-best 18-3 road record. And they did it without two-time MVP and two-time NBA champion Steph Curry, who was sidelined because of a sprained right ankle. Here’s how it all went down.
Golden State outscored the Bucks in the fourth quarter, 28-12, behind the Warriors’ swarming defense, which held the Bucks to 5-of-20 shooting from the field during the period. The Bucks had the advantage in the third quarter, outscoring the Warriors 33-17 to take an 82-80 lead into the fourth. But the defending NBA champions made sure they wouldn’t lose back-to-back games for the first time this season.
