Warriors Vs. Wizards Recap: Golden State Jumps On Washington Early, Cruises To 120-100 Win

The Golden State Warriors scored a season-high 120 points on the Wizards on Monday night, cruising to a comfortable 20-point win. The Warriors were on fire in the first half, hitting eight of ten attempt from behind the arc and racing out to 41 points in the first 12 minutes. Golden State finished the game shooting an amazing 65 percent from three-point range and the Wizards simply could not keep up, never really challenging in the second half.

John Wall nearly had a double-double in the first half alone, and finished with 14 assists as the sophomore point guard continues his improved play. Wall got the better of Kyrie Irving on Friday night, and finished with 20 points on just 10 attempts from the floor against Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry on Monday. Nick Young had 25 points off the bench in just 26 minutes for Randy Wittman, but the defensive stops were simply not there.

Washington will now host Kobe Bryant and the Lakers, who will be on the second night of a road back-to-back on Wednesday night.
