Warriors depend on Kevin Durant, defense in win over Bucks
Whenever Stephen Curry steps on the floor, the Warriors rely on his outside shooting, gravity and passing skills to lift the team through both beautiful and ugly performances. Whenever Curry sits on the bench with the injury, the Warriors rely on their other All-Star players and a higher level of defensive intensity.
So with Curry sitting out for a second consecutive game with an aggravated sprain in his right ankle, the Warriors relied on a proven formula.
The Warriors’ other All-Stars in Kevin Durant (26 points), Draymond Green (21 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists) and Klay Thompson (12 points) provided enough offensively. Meanwhile, the Warriors (33-9) offered a much stellar defensive performance than the one they offered in a double-digit loss this week to the Los Angeles Clippers. The Warriors held the Bucks to four-points on 2-of-11 shooting during a six-minute stretch during the fourth quarter.
