MVP Stephen Curry & the Golden State “Monstars” demolish Pistons 127-107
The Detroit Pistons were predictably demolished by the real-life version of the “Monstars” the Golden State Warriors 127-107.
Golden State dazzled fans all night with their tic-tac-toe passing (39 assists) and amazing jump shooting. The Warriors shot 56.2% from the field and 51.7% from downtown. Stephen Curry showed why he is the two-time MVP posting 26 points, 6 assists and 5 steals. Kevin Durant did it all, dishing 9 assists while scoring 25 points. Klay Thompson poured in 23 points with 4 3-pointers. Hometown hero, Draymond Green, had 9 rebounds with 13 assists.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope left in the 1st quarter with undisclosed shoulder injury. He will have an MRI tomorrow.
Stan Van Gundy addressed KCP’s injury and his significance to the team:
Marcus Morris led the Pistons with 21 points, Tobias Harris scored 18 and Andre Drummond had a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds. There is no moral victory here tonight, the Pistons were simply beat down by a superior team.
The Pistons continue their road trip tomorrow night taking on Gordon Hayward and the Utah Jazz (24-16).
