It's absolutely stunning that the Warriors have taken one more 3-pointers than the Rockets, the NBA's most noted 3-point-shot addicts, over their last three games. What happened to that Warriors vow to remain true to their established style while most of the rest of the NBA is intent on making the 3-pointer the trendiest shot in league history? "Yeah, we're taking the approach that everyone else is taking and just casting a bunch of 3s," Draymond Green said late Monday night, after the win over Minnesota.
Draymond Green desperately wanted to shoot the ball during the early stages of his rehab for a right toe sprain, but he was instructed to stay off his feet for about a week. On Monday in his return against the Minnesota Timberwolves after sitting out nearly a month, the Golden State Warriors All-Star finally had the opportunity to take his shot. Golden State guard Stephen Curry had a three-on-one break in the closing seconds of the second quarter.
Draymond Green returned to the Golden State Warriors' starting lineup for Monday night's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves after sitting out the previous 11 with a right toe injury.
Steve Kerr long ago ran out of superlatives to describe Stephen Curry. The Warriors coach isn't even trying anymore, not with the way his All-Star point guard is playing since coming back from a groin injury. Curry had 38 points, seven rebounds and six assists, and Golden State beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 116-108 on Monday night in Draymond Green's return to the Warriors' lineup.
The Celtics climb back inside the top-10, and the Warriors reclaim the top spot in this week’s updated NBA Power Rankings. Golden State went undefeated last week, and the NBA’s best team is close to getting two-fifths of their optimal starting lineup back in action. Draymond Green (toe), who has missed each of the Warriors previous 11 games, will play on Monday against the Timberwolves.
