"That's obviously a great win". The Pistons finished with 14 offensive rebounds to Golden State's eight.

"It is so tough to play Andre, because when they get some penetration, the bigs normally try to help, but if you take your body off him for a second, he's going to get the rebound", Kevin Durant said. We've gotta get better shots.

Steph Curry drains his first 3-pointer of the game, pulling up for an uncontested triple from the elbow.

On the season, the Warriors have taken 710 3-pointers, but opponents have taken 110 more.

"I did not like our offense tonight", Kerr told reporters afterward. "I was a little bit more aggressive, decisive".

Allen Crabbe led Brooklyn with 14 points. "Tonight was probably a game that I can mark down as one of my worst performances as a coach, honestly".

"I have worked really hard to get back andI'm feeling really confident physically. We weren't shooting 3s or getting to the glass".

Kevin Durant had 28 points and a team-high seven assists, and Klay Thompson scored 21 points with a team-high eight rebounds for the Warriors, who lost their sixth straight on the road, their longest road losing streak since February 2013.

"It is great just to be able to play basketball again and do something that I enjoy", added Leonard, who only played nine games last season for the Spurs due to a quadriceps injury. "None of that is on coach". Curry scored 27 after going 2 of 9 in the first half, when Golden State hit just 1 of 10 3-point shots.

Earlier in the night, Kylian Mbappe was named victor of the Kopa Trophy for young player of the year. Hegerberg told BBC Sport she "didn't consider it sexual harassment or anything in the moment".

Johnson and Smith were part of a bench crew that outscored their Golden State counterparts 42-13.

According to Cleaning the Glass, the Warriors have been 12.7 points per 100 possessions worse without Steph this season, which is in the 89th percentile of all players.

He played nine minutes in the first quarter, but went scoreless and missed all three of his three-point attempts in the opening frame. They were too comfortable.

Emmanuel Mudiay scored 16 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter and overtime as the New York Knicks came back to defeat the visiting Milwaukee Bucks.

The easy answer is the second unit.

"We had a lapse for a few minutes there, but that young man also made a lot of plays", Casey said.

The Pistons led 96-87 with 4:15 to play when the Warriors began to intentionally foul Drummond, who had missed 17 of his last 20 free throws.

Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is just happy to be back on the court. "The second half was better and I am sure that will carry over each game", Curry said.

The Pistons improved to 13-7, whereas the Warriors dropped to 15-9.
