The Golden State Warriors blew out another Eastern Conference contender Wednesday night in a 125-94 demolition of the Chicago Bulls at the United Center. Stephen Curry led the team with 25 points, seven rebounds and 11 assists.
For the Bulls, it could've been even worse if it weren't for a vintage night from Derrick Rose. The 27-year-old point guard dropped in 29 points and had several slithery maneuvers to the rim that looked eerily similar to his prime years approximately five years ago.
Overall, though, Golden State's offensive sets confused Chicago's defense many a time and resulted in 58 points in the paint. Many of those buckets came off of quick-hitting backdoor cuts and other off-ball movement.
Another huge factor in the game was three-point shooting. Golden State nailed 12 of its 32 threes, while Chicago was an ice-cold 1-of-20.
The 39-4 Warriors, after beating the Cleveland Cavaliers and Chicago decisively on the road in consecutive games, will now return home for a contest against the Indiana Pacers Friday night. The 24-17 Bulls will travel to Boston to face the Celtics also on Friday.
