Warriors rally past Bucks

Mar 5, 2015 - 7:13 AM Oakland, CA ( - Steph Curry posted his 16th double-double of the season and Draymond Green scored a game-high 23 points with a full line as the Golden State Warriors had a big fourth quarter in their 102-93 win over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Curry struggled to find the range over three quarters, but hit four triples in the fourth to help Golden State pull away for its third win in four games.

"Steph had arguably one of his worst games of the year going," Golden State coach Steve Kerr said. "I used to watch it with Michael Jordan. On nights where he missed 10 shots in a row, when everyone else would just clam up, he just all of a sudden would find that incredible confidence. It's unbreakable. Steph has that."

Green added 12 rebounds, five assists, three steals and three blocks in a tremendous all-around effort. Klay Thompson and Shaun Livingston gave 17 and 16 points, respectively, in the victory.

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Michael-Carter-Williams had 16 points apiece to lead Milwaukee, which finished its four-game road trip winless. Zaza Pachulia and Ersan Ilyasova both had double-doubles in the setback.

"It's been a learning experience, a process that a young team is going through," Milwaukee coach Jason Kidd said.

Andrew Bogut's alley-oop from Curry at 1:47 of the second quarter gave the Warriors a 53-42 lead. Carter-Williams answered at the other end with a pullup, and the Bucks rattled off an unprecedented 18 straight points bridging halftime from there.

Antetokounmpo and Pachulia both potted two at the free throw line, Khris Middleton converted a three-point play and Carter-Williams beat the buzzer with an off-balance jumper to tie it at 53 at halftime.

The momentum carried into the third. Pachulia scored and assisted on Jared Dudley's baseline jumper around Carter-Williams' there-point play. Bogut finally ended the spell with a pair of free throws.

Golden State recovered from its drought and led 72-71 after three. Then, Curry took over.

3-pointers on three straight possessions from Curry during a 17-4 Warriors run broke the game open. He later canned the dagger in transition on a feed from Green with just under two minutes remaining.
