By comparison, the entire Magic team made only nine buckets in the first quarter.”We were able to get out in transition just from our stops,” Thompson said. ”It definitely helps when you make four or five in a row. You feel like every shot’s going to go in.”Thompson’s fast start began not long after Curry limped off the court and into the Warriors’ locker room early in the first quarter after he stepped on the foot of Elfrid Payton.The reigning two-time MVP returned a short time later and was greeted by a rousing ovation from the Oracle crowd. Curry then promptly threw an inbounds pass to Thompson for an easy bucket that put the Warriors up by double digits.”Tweaked his ankle,” Golden State coach Steve Kerr said. ”He’s fine.” (AP)[/av_textblock]last_img read more
