Isaiah Thomas & Steph Curry Duel In the 3rd Quarter, Celtics End Warriors’ Home Streak
The Golden State Warriors’ home streak of 54 straight home games (36 this season) finally ended on Friday night after the Celtics came to town and left with a 109-106 victory.
Steph Curry had a game-high 29, along with 8 more 3-pointers, but the Celtics got 20+ points from 3 players, led by 22 from Isaiah Thomas; 18 of those 22 came in a 3rd quarter duel with Steph, who scored 21 in the quarter and hit another near half court shot.
But the 3 Curry needed the most, a 3-point shot with 5.3 seconds left in regulation with the Warriors down by 3, was off.
“Every one of them I think is going down. But it didn’t,” Curry said of the miss. “All things considered, it was a pretty good look at it. … We’ve gotten away with some games that we probably shouldn’t have won with some shots like that. And tonight it wasn’t our night.”
The Warriors now have to win 5 of their last 6 games to break the 95 Bulls’ record of 72 wins.
