The Golden State Warriors defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 120-114 on Thursday night, ending the Dubs recent skid. Despite missing Andrew Wiggins, Chris Paul, and Gary Payton II with injuries, Golden State managed to outplay a Clippers team that was not missing any significant contributors.

Unsurprisingly, Steph Curry was easily the best player on the floor. Curry scored a game-high 26 points and added 7 rebounds, 8 assists, 1 steal, and 1 block. Klay Thompson scored 22 points and grabbed 6 boards. Draymond Green also filled the stat sheet with 13 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists.

Moses Moody stepped into the starting lineup for Wiggins relatively seamlessly. He scored 13 points on 6-for-10 shooting from the field. However, it was Jonathan Kuminga and Brandin Podziemski off the bench who were the star youngsters of the evening.

Kuminga needed just eight field-goal attempts to score 17 points in just over 23 minutes of action. He also had 6 rebounds and a trio of assists. Podziemski, serving as the backup point guard in place of Poole, formed an impressive duo with veteran big Dario Šarić. The two combined for 26 points, 13 rebounds, and 7 assists on 9-for-17 shooting from the field.

The Clippers consistently outscored the Warriors when both teams’ starters were on the floor. However, Golden State was able to lean on their depth to build a lead, and eventually put Los Angeles away. Now 9-10 on the season, the Warriors will soon travel south to Los Angeles for a rematch on Saturday night on the Clippers home floor. Opening tip is scheduled for 1:00 PM Pacific.
