Golden State Warriors Start Slow but Come Back to Beat Knicks

Earlier this season, Durant had three in an 18-game span, one more than he had in his previous 810. "When you're on the run like we are on, the challenge is to be able to get up for those games and stay engaged with the process of getting better each time you step on the floor". There was a prelude to his third-quarter eruption this time, dropping six of the Warriors' eight to close the first half. Curry finished with a game-high 32 points, Kevin Durant posted 14, and Zaza Pachulia recorded 13 in 14 minutes.

Other starters voted in are Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo, Toronto's DeMar DeRozan, Boston's Kyrie Irving, Philadelphia's Joel Embiid, Golden State's Kevin Durant, Houston's James Harden, and New Orleans' Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins.

Kevon Looney's line: 8 points (4-of-5 shooting), four rebounds and one assist.

OAKLAND-It was the NBA's most dominant team in that team's most dominant quarter.

But then they recaptured their offensive explosiveness and outscored NY, 77-56, in the second and third quarters, before cruising to a 123-112 victory Wednesday night at Oracle Arena.

With the National Basketball Association trade deadline approaching on February 8, it is unlikely that the New York Knicks will retain all four of the centers they now have on their depth chart. In just 21 games this year, the Spaniard has averaged just 4.6 points and 2.9 rebounds in an average of 9.7 minutes played per game.

The Warriors became the first team to ever field four players in the All-Star Game in consecutive seasons after Klay Thompson and Draymond Green were selected on Tuesday.

The Knicks led by as many as 10 points in the first quarter and held a 60-58 half-time advantage before Curry propelled the Warriors towards their seventh-straight win over NY. Thompson will net his fourth mention while Green will earn his third.

As the Warriors settle into the start of the second half of the season, head coach Steve Kerr emphasized the team's need to focus on taking care of the ball and maintaining possession of the game.

The Warriors next host Minnesota on Thursday before a showdown of first-place teams Saturday when the Eastern Conference-leading Celtics come to Oracle.
