Stephen Curry scored 31 points and handed out nine assists, while Kevin Durant added 28 points.
The 1991-92 Phoenix Suns were the last NBA team to dish out 47 assists in a game.
Per the AP:
“That’s pretty crazy. We almost have more assists than rebounds. That’s sick,” Durant said. “That shows we’re getting more comfortable with each other.”
Warriors coach Steve Kerr has repeatedly noted it might take time for his team to really click, yet at 15 games in Golden State was in top form — at least for one spectacular night of basketball.
”I mean 47 is a shocking number but getting 30 every night is not surprising,” Kerr said. “We don’t have to do anything spectacular, just keep the ball moving.”
