Klay Thompson took the charge as Golden State Warriors edged Houston Rockets without MVP Stephen Curry. Draymond Green posted his fifth triple double, which is highest in this NBA.
Green was asked whether he’s out to steal Curry’s job.
”I don’t think Steph Curry got to worry about too much of nothing,” Green, who is in superb form cited after the game, laughing. Thompson led Golden State to return to the winning ways with 38 points.
Green posted a career high 16 assists, 11 rebounds along with his 10 points. Warriors after being outclassed by the Mavs last night, overcame the challenge of Curry’s absence to edge past Rockets 114-110 at Houston.

”I just tried to step up and make plays,” Green also added. ”One thing we talked about was kind of trying to slow the pace of the game down and executing our offense.”
Thompson who dropped 38 points, admitted that Wednesday night at Dallas was embarrassing.
”We had every excuse in the world, but we didn’t want to come away 0-2 so we figured out this would be a much bigger statement win if we responded like we did and won with playing 10 guys.” Thompson pointed out.
James Harden led the Rockets with 30 points but couldn’t prevent Rockets’ seventh straight loss to the Warriors in regular season games.
Warriors take on the Nuggets, and Steve Kerr could be on the sidelines.
