Bring the noise: Stephen Curry puts Warriors back on track

Tipoff: 4:30 p.m. Monday at Philips Arena.

The Warriors maintained their grip on the Western Conference rankings after an inspired performance from Iguodala, who scored his points after coming off the bench to lead a second-quarter rally.

The Warriors now sit atop of the league with a record of 50-11, 2.5 games ahead of San Antonio in the western conference.

The New York Knicks have an opportunity to do something no team has been able to do in recent history: hand the Golden State Warriors a third consecutive loss.

Knicks guard Courtney Lee also said it affected the players' rhythms, despite the Knicks actually leading the Warriors at halftime. Hawks: Lost to visiting IN 97-96 on Sunday as slam dunk champion Glenn Robinson III hit a 3-pointer with 0.6 seconds remaining. Atlanta has lost two in a row and five of seven.

Warriors: Green had four steals, giving him a career-high 128 for the season.

Melo took 12 shots in 35 minutes or five more than Ron Baker, who played 23 minutes.




Dennis Schroder said he didn't put visa on new passport. On Atlanta's next play, Green blocked Kent Bazemore's shot, then after Bazemore recovered the rebound, swatted the ball off Bazemore's foot and out of bounds to give the Warriors the ball again. Millsap has ramped up his scoring recently.

Steph Curry and Steve Kerr also added that the first half was weird without any music or in-game entertainment; Kerr likened the atmosphere to that of a church and Curry noted that it reminded him of middle school warm-ups.

"You sort of take it for granted because every National Basketball Association game, you got all this stuff going on, music in the background", said Warriors coach Steve Kerr.

It's an interesting tactic at a time when more teams in more leagues are going the opposite direction, and looking for diverse ways to use technology to engage with fans.

Stephen Curry had 24 points on 8-of-20 shooting, while Klay Thompson was held to 13 after a scoreless first half. He scored 15 points in the 3rd, not to mention some much needed three's. They have a defensive presence in the middle in Dwight Howard (tied for fourth in the National Basketball Association in rebounding at 12.8, plus 1.25 blocks). They signed the versatile veteran Matt Barnes to aid them in small forward position and clearly the impact shows.

"It was big because you want to create momentum going into the fourth quarter and try to create some separation", said Curry, who achieved both objectives, and then some, with his little spree. The rookie's status is unclear for Sunday's tilt against Golden State.

After days of chatter about how they blow leads down the stretch, it was a comeback that was thwarted this time as the Knicks misfired on shots and repeatedly turned it over with sloppy passing.
