NBA: Warriors’ Hot Shooting Defeats Orlando

ORLANDO, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – The Golden State Warriors started their back-to-back Florida road trip by shooting 62.5 percent from the floor as a team as they defeated the Orlando Magic by the score of 133-112. Stephen Curry scored 27 points and had 10 assists to lead the Warriors.

The Warriors had six players in double-figures and had 46 assists as a team. The 46 assists was one short of the team record and six away from tying the NBA record. The Warriors opened up the game hitting shots from all over, led by Curry and Kevin Durant, who both combined to score 10 of the game’s first 12 total points.

Curry finished 9 for 20 shooting and knocking down three of the team’s 12 successful three-pointers. The team shot 50 percent from the 3-point line collectively even though Durant did not make any of them.

Durant had a nice all-around game by scoring 25 points, seven assists and four blocks before being ejected over a non-foul call with less than five minutes left in the game.

“He got fouled on a shot and for some reason they didn’t give him two free throws… Which was kind of bizzarre. It was one of the most bizzarre non-calls I’ve ever seen. It looked so obvious that he should have been at the line. So I’m sure he was upset about it. I was upset about that too.” -Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr on Kevin Durant’s ejection
