Milwaukee Bucks fall short to Golden State Warriors, 121-112
OAKLAND, Calif. — Stephen Curry scored 26 points and Draymond Green fueled a key fourth-quarter run that helped the Golden State Warriors avenge their only loss of the season by beating the Milwaukee Bucks 121-112 on Friday night.
Six nights after handing the Warriors their first loss of the season and ending a 28-game, regular-season winning streak dating to last season, the Bucks nearly dealt Golden State (26-1) its first home loss since Jan. 27 against Chicago.
The game ended with some heated words between Green and O.J. Mayo as the teams left the court. Security and a few other players got in the middle of it before things calmed down and both teams retreated to their locker rooms.
It didn’t come easy, as Golden State trailed by as many as 15 points in the third quarter and by 11 points with less than eight minutes to play.
