The Golden State Warriors have hovered around the .500 mark for the majority of the season. After ripping off a five-game win streak, they lost three games in a row. However, on Saturday night, they snapped their losing streak, taking down the Giannis Antetokounmpo-less Milwaukee Bucks.
Despite missing their best player, the Bucks put up a great fight. The game came down to the wire, and Stephen Curry ended up making some clutch plays to help seal an overtime win for the Warriors. After the game, Jrue Holiday sent a message on the Golden State star.
“I mean, it felt good,” Holiday said of his defense on Curry via the NBA’s official website. “Steph’s gonna be Steph, so he’s gonna hit shots. He’s gonna make big plays.
