The Golden State Warriors beat the Washington Wizards by a score of 126-112 on Monday night.

Here’s some of the highlights from the Warriors postgame pressers:

Players Discuss the Game

March 14th is a significant day for many reasons. There’s Pi Day, there’s the birthday of the famous physicist Albert Einstein, and then there’s the birthday of this guy in the Bay Area whose genius displays itself on the basketball court. However, March 14th, 2022 is especially sentimental for Warriors fans as it marked the first time that Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green all played on an NBA court together after 1,005 days.

What truly makes this moment special are the obstacles that this trio have overcome the last couple of years to get to this point. Because of this, they’ve grown a lot in their own ways and developed a new appreciation for the times they get to share on the court.
