Wall ejected, Wizards lose to Warriors
X-rays were negative on Curry’s ankle and his status for Monday’s home showdown against the Los Angeles Lakers was unknown. Curry departed with 6:03 left in the game after turning his ankle after being fouled hard by Cartier Martin while driving toward the hoop.
Curry was on a tear up to that point, hitting 13 of 18 shots - including 6 of 10 from 3-point range - and dishing out a game-high eight assists.
“Night in and night out, he’s the best player on the floor,” Warriors coach Mark Jackson said. “It’s special to see, because when you play with players like that, it elevates everybody else and makes them believe we can win, because we’ve got the baddest dude on the floor.”
Martin led Washington with a career-high 23 points.
The Warriors hold a one-game lead over Houston for sixth place in the Western Conference.
They opened a 58-40 halftime lead, and it would have been more lopsided if Martin didn’t hit buzzer-beating 3-pointers at the end of the first two quarters.
Golden State shot 56 percent (24 for 43) from the field in the first half.
The Wizards struggled mightily on offense in the first half, hitting just 15 of 45 shots (33 percent).
Jackson talked before the game about the importance of containing Wall, whom he called “a one-man fast break.” His team executed the plan, holding the explosive point guard to eight points and two assists in the first half.
