Back to Back

What probably doomed the New York Knicks on Sunday happened in Philadelphia on Saturday.  It took a last second tie-breaker for the Golden State Warriors, with the best record in the NBA, to beat the Sixers, with the worst record, after being ahead in the second half by 24 points.

So even though Steph Curry had a bad shooting night in New York, and the Warriors sloppily turned the ball over too much again, they won their second of the back-to-backs by 21 points, 116-95.

Draymond Green helped compensate for Curry by hitting 9 for 9 and 20 points.  Klay Thompson had 34.  The break can't come too soon for the Warriors as they are showing signs of weariness.  And yet...two victories, and a big second half against the Knicks to win by 21.
