NBA News: Golden State Warriors Cruise Past Knicks Despite Stephen Curry Being Off Form

The Golden State Warriors cruised to another convincing victory against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Sunday to improve to 44-4.

The Golden State Warriors cruised to another convincing victory versus the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Sunday to improve to 44-4. Klay Thompson led the Warriors on a night when MVP Stephen Curry was off-color.

Knicks’ coach Derek Fisher addressed the media for 14 minutes on Sunday afternoon before his side took on the reigning champions. And most of the questions were regarding the Warriors’ historic triumph. Fisher avoided some questions as it could have meant disrespect for Knicks players, as reported by the New York Times.

“We have to walk out there expecting to win,” Fisher said to shield his players. “I don’t know if you guys are going to walk in there and ask them the same questions you’re asking me, but I would be offended if I was them.”

Nobody expected Golden State to lose. Nobody expected Stephen Curry to return with only 13 points. But the Warriors had a field day with Klay Thompson leading the team with 34 points and Draymond Green notching up a triple double. Green scored 20 points and had 10 rebounds as his team crushed the Knicks 116-95.

Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 24 points.

“You try so hard to stop one guy, and another guy gets going,” said Melo after the game. Anthony left a scratch on Curry’s forehead in the fourth quarter in a one-on-one situation, according to SB Nation.
