The Warriors continue to have the Cavaliers number, locking down LeBron James and his teammates on MLK Day for a 118-108 victory that wasn’t as close as the final score. The Warriors defense was stellar in the final frame, as they forced the Cavaliers to miss 17 of their first 19 shots in the quarter to help them easily secure the win. That’s six out of the last seven for Golden State over Cleveland, leaving no doubt as to which team has the upper hand in the matchup.
The Warriors ran their road game winning streak to fourteen games with a 119-112 victory over the Chicago Bulls. Steph Curry was able to shake off a rough first quarter to rack up 30 points, while Klay Thompson put up a tidy 38 points on 22 shots, with the Splash Brothers finishing the game with 13 3-pointers. That road win streak came to a tragic end in Houston against the Rockets, as Houston took advantage of some road-weary players on Saturday in a 116-108 loss for Golden State. Curry had just 19 points, with one field goal that wasn’t a 3-pointer in a game where James Harden and Chris Paul were able to get the best of him.
