The Warriors actually started the game hot and hit seven of their first eight shots, with Klay Thompson doing most of the damage. He hit his first four, including three 3-pointers. Even after both teams hit a lull, Golden State had a seven-point lead.

Golden State stuck with its reserve lineup for the first 3½ minutes of the second quarter and fell behind 31-28. The starters returned and turn it into a four-point lead for the Warriors, but the Hawks tied it up at 46 by halftime.
The third quarter wasn't pretty, as Atlanta, which wasn't playing particularly well itself, pushed the lead to 72-64. The Warriors missed all four 3-point attempts in the quarter as they remained ice cold from the outside.
David Lee led the Warriors with 23 points. Curry finished with 22 points, nine assists and eight rebounds, and Thompson finished with 21 points.
