The Golden State Warriors overcame a twelve point deficit in the fourth quarter to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 106-104, last night at Oracle Arena. This win snapped a three game losing streak the team had then been on. Stephen Curry had a team high twenty-nine points to go along with six rebounds and five assists. Draymond Green had an all around great game finishing with twenty points, eight rebounds, eight assists, four blocks, and six steals. Klay Thompson also had a good shooting night scoring twenty-eight points on 10-22 shooting from the field.
For the first three quarters of the game, the team was all over the place. They were missing wide open shots and turning the ball over. Multiple players were blowing defensive assignments and the other team was getting wide open looks at the basket. The team was lucky to be down only one point at half time. The third quarter was even worse because they were outscored by eleven points and had the look of losing to a Sixers team that was nineteen games under .500. Then entering the fourth quarter down twelve points, the team started to catch fire. Stephen Curry started hit his three point shot and Draymond Green started to look like the defensive player of the year candidate he usually is. The team started forcing more turnovers on the defensive end and getting easy points in transition. Besides missing a dunk at the end of the game by matt Barnes which would have pushed the lead to four points, the Warriors team played a flawless fourth quarter, which was needed in order to complete the comeback against the Philadelphia 76ers. Hopefully the team takes the same energy and effort they had in the fourth quarter, and use it to finish off the regular season strong.
