Curry Scores 30 In Warriors’ 128-111 Blitz Of Atlanta Hawks

Golden State Warriors snapped out of their six-game losing streak on the road as they cruised past the Atlanta Hawks 128-111 on Monday night.

Stephen Curry playing for the second time since missing 11 games with a groin injury led the scoring for Warriors with 30 points, scoring 18 in the opening quarter.

Kevin Durant scored 28 and Klay Thompson chipped in 27 in what was a spread of the points as all of the three stars have scored more than 50 points in a game this season.

The Warriors raced to a 34-17 lead in the first 12 minutes with Curry outscoring the Hawks by himself, leading the defending NBA champions to only their fourth win in 10 games. He finished 6 of 10 from 3-point range.

Golden State led 61-47 at half-time and was up by as high as 24 points, consigning the Hawks to their third straight loss.

John Collins led Atlanta with 24 points, Trae Young adding 20. But it was a tough night for the rookie guard Young, he had seven turnovers and missed all five of his 3-point attempts.

Young, who the Hawks are hoping to turn into a Curry-like shooter has been struggling with his shooting, especially from long range and is only connecting on 23.9% of his 3-pointers.

The Warriors continue their road trip with a game at Cleveland on Wednesday, while Atlanta Hawks host the Washington Wizards.
