Largely beaten by the Bucks the day before, the Warriors reacted perfectly this Friday evening against the Bulls. On the menu, a crushing victory against the teammates of DeMar DeRozan. The only problem with all of this? Steph Curry has damaged his right hand again.
After a collective rout against the Bucks, we expected a reaction from the Warriors this Friday night. Klay Thompson was absent, as was Draymond Green, still injured. The good news for the supporters is that they got the job done with a 138-96 win.
A great reaction for the Dubs, with Jonathan Kuminga on 25 points, 3 assists and 3 rebounds: a very interesting performance from the rookie, who should continue to get playing time over time. Jordan Poole woke up with 22 points, while Steph Curry proceeded quietly.
Absence to come for Steph Curry?
The leader, author of 19 points at 7/15, did not force his game in this collective victory, even if an injury can explain all that. During the match, he hurt his right hand, responsible for his long absence during the 2019/20 season.
Really hope there’s nothing serious with Steph’s right hand.

As seen in the image, the doctors took the time to examine Steph’s hand, which felt pain. Something wrong ? Probably not, since he remained on the floor, but Steve Kerr could seek to spare him for the future. While waiting to find out, know that the victory of the Dubs is historic:
The Warriors led the Bulls by 31 at halftime tonight. Yesterday, Golden State trailed the Bucks by 39 at the break.
The 70-point halftime swing is the largest for any team in consecutive days in the shot-clock era (since 1954-55).

The Warriors led the Bulls by 31 points at halftime tonight. Yesterday, Golden State was trailing the Bucks by 39 points. That 70-point swing is the biggest gap for a team over two days since the clock was instituted (1954-55).
Never has a team like the Warriors corrected the situation in this way, and it gives an impressive victory against the uninspired Bulls. For Steve Kerr’s men, on the other hand, it feels good after a series of defeats.
