Last nights matchup between the Atlanta Hawks and the Golden State Warriors was filled with a few highs and lows. The Warriors looked to wrap up their five game road trip against the Atlanta Hawks coming off of a back-to-back against the New York Knicks Sunday afternoon.
The Atlanta Hawks faced a few bumps in the road during yesterday’s game as Dwight Howard and Dennis Schroder had a very costly disagreement on the court, which resulted in a big time Steph Curry 3-pointer in the 3rd Quarter with about 9:00 minutes remaining.
The Atlanta Hawks have lost six of their last eight games and have gone 25-27 since their fast pace 9-2 run to start the 2016-2017 season.
“Credit to some of their guys off the ball, some of the guys opposite Curry and Thompson,” Mike Budenholzer told reporters after the game. “Iguodala had a great game. He hit a bunch of three’s. McCaw, I thought played well. He and Clark hit some three’s. With players like Curry and Thompson, you try to do as much as you can to take those two guys away. You put so much attention on them, when that other group around them plays well, they’re tough. For parts of the night, we were good. We were good on offense for parts of the night. Credit to Golden State winning here. Hopefully we can learn from tonight and be better going forward.”
Following last nights game we had a chance to catch up with Warriors Guard Steph Curry to get his thoughts on Golden State finishing above .500 during there 5 game road trip; here’s what he had to say.
