San Francisco, CA – Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry continued his shooting struggles against the Brooklyn Nets and his co-star Klay Thompson joined him. Although the Warriors duo had a hard time scoring most of the game the Warriors led the majority of the night.
The team was carried by the outstanding play of All-Star Andrew Wiggins and the second unit standouts Otto Porter Jr. and Jordan Poole. They held down the fort until Curry and Thompson got it going to close the game.
“Strength in numbers. It is still alive and well,” Thompson told ClutchPoints. “I was telling Steph about that. We had a subpar shooting night and to see these guys go in and play so well and move the ball, be aggressive, that gives us life.”
When the game was close in the fourth quarter, Curry and Thompson came alive. The dynamic duo put together 23 points in that period to swipe a victory away from Kyrie Irving and the Nets.

The win capped off a seven-game homestand, and the Warriors finished 6-1 during that stretch. The supporting cast has been fantastic from top to bottom all season, and whenever the stars need help they've been ready to take on whatever task is necessary.
Once Thompson and Curry get a rhythm going for a long stretch the Warriors will dominate the rest of the season. They now have a record of 36-13 and it's the second-best record in the NBA.
Next, the Warriors will hit the road to face the Houston Rockets as they try to build on their success.
