Steph Curry speaks out after Warriors’ 6th straight win
SAN FRANCISCO — The Golden State Warriors won another game by double digits on Friday night, this time by defeating Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers. They won this matchup 118-103 in dominant fashion. The win was a total group effort, and Stephen Curry understands the importance of victories like Friday night.
“A night like tonight can happen, where it’s a pretty well-balanced effort scoring the ball, but also defensively,” he told ClutchPoints. “Everybody knows where they are supposed to be and being able to maintain that lockdown defensive presence that we have established earlier this year. It’s huge in terms of confidence and chemistry, and we have to maintain that.”
Curry, the NBA’s leading scorer, led all players in scoring with 32 points. All of the Warriors starters scored in double digits, and every player that played put points on the board. The collective effort overpowered the Blazers, and it never felt like they had a chance at winning.

It was another night of great basketball for the Warriors on both ends of the floor. On one end, they put up points, and on the other, they shut down the Blazers’ offense. Their superstar point guard struggled to find a rhythm and finished with 16 points on 5-of-15. C.J. McCollum shot 6-of-17 and finished with 16 points also.
The Warriors haven’t lost a game in their division this year, and they continue to make their case as the best team in the NBA. Klay Thompson and James Wiseman are nearing a return, and everything is trending in the right direction for the first time in a long two years.
