Milwaukee Bucks became the most recent team to face the wrath of Stephen Curry led Golden State Warriors. Stephen Curry led with game-high 41 points as the Warriors come from behind to win against the Bucks 122-121. The Warriors ended their 3-game losing streak as James Wiseman kept his composure to drain two crucial free throws with just over 7 seconds remaining, giving his team the vital lead.
For the Golden State Warriors, this performance marked progress on many fronts: the energy on both ends, the attention to detail that had lacked during a particularly discouraging recent road trip and, of course, the crucial W result. Curry shot 14 for 21 and 5 of 10 from deep.

Jrue Holiday scored the go-ahead basket after his offensive rebound with 29 seconds left. Andrew Wiggins’ driving dunk with 1:59 to play made it a one-point game, then Golden State got a defensive stop before Kent Bazemore put his team ahead the next time down.
Kelly Oubre Jr wound up with 19 points and Bazemore scored 18 in just the Warriors’ second win in nine games.
Khris Middleton scored 28 points as Milwaukee Bucks again missed injured big man Giannis Antetokounmpo. Holiday finished with 29 points and knocked down back-to-back 3-pointers that weren’t quite enough.
“No. 1, defending without fouling would be awesome,” Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr quipped beforehand as per ESPN. “That was so disappointing the other night to really play a good game overall and compete and have a chance to win and just hack our way to a loss.”
