At Chase Arena in San Francisco, California, the Charlotte Hornets took on the Golden State Warriors. Stephen Curry was coming from a three-day layoff that the entire team needed for tonight’s game versus the Ball brothers’ youngest brother. With 14 points, LaMelo had a similar performance to his Warriors rival, although Curry only had 15. All through the four quarters, both point guards were incredibly controlled.
Jordan Poole was indeed the Warriors’ star Friday evening, scoring 31 points to lead his team to victory and career-high 7 three-pointers. Draymond Green was as commanding on defence as he has been all season, and his contribution is tough to quantify when Golden State is performing at its best. The Warriors now have a 6-1 record in the Western Conference after tonight’s win. However, with a 5-3 record after tonight’s loss, the Hornets aren’t doing too badly. Curry who was having a rough night went off in the 4th quarter scoring 10 of his 15 points in the 4th quarter.

With Klay Thompson a little over a month away from full recovery, the ‘Splash Brothers’ are getting closer to returning to the court. Following an Achilles injury last season kept him out of the game for the whole previous season, the Warriors star has been out of action. Steph’s performance tonight demonstrated that he has to collaborate with his better half to raise the bar even higher.
Even though Jordan’s Hornet loss tonight there record this season is beyond expectation and Lamelo Ball’s transition from a rookie to a star has been quicker, his ability to pass and score the ball has given a new light to the organization.
