Behind 37 points from Kevin Durant and 28 from Stephen Curry, the Golden State Warriors were able to hold off the winless Phoenix Suns 106-100 on Sunday.
Durant went to the line for 16 attempts (missing just once.)
The Dubs, admittedly, have yet to hit their stride in the season’s early going.
Per the AP:
“We are not clicking and everybody can see that,” Golden State coach Steve Kerr said. “It will come but the main thing while we are going through this process is to continue to compete and try to pick up wins.”
The Warriors didn’t seal the victory until Curry’s two free throws with 12.9 seconds to play. Durant added a pair of free throws with seven seconds left to provide the final margin.
Durant was 15 of 16 at the line. […] “I was just taking what the defense was giving me,” he said. “If you play me straight up, I like my chances. I try to get there (the foul line) as much as possible. My guys were setting great screens for me and I was able to get downhill some.”
