SAN FRANCISCO – Sometimes, the seventh time’s the charm.
The Warriors on Monday night snapped their six-game losing streak to avoid a winless six-game homestand, beating the Houston Rockets 121-116 at Chase Center.
Steph Curry unsurprisingly led the Warriors with 32 points, but this time, Curry received some help. Five Warriors scored in double figures, including a season-high 20 points from Klay Thompson. The Warriors as a team shot 46.8 percent from the field, 48.8 percent from 3-point range and made a season-high 21 3-pointers.
The Rockets took 19 more shots than the Warriors. Life is a bit easier when outside shots are falling for Golden State.
Here are three takeaways from the Warriors improving to 7-8 this season.
What’s a quintessential Chris Paul stat line? Look no further than what Paul produced in the first half as the Warriors led by 10 points. Paul played 17 minutes and was a plus-15 behind seven points, eight assists, five rebounds, one steal and no turnovers.
