Heading into Monday’s Warriors-Jazz game, the Dubs have won seven straight head-to-head matchups with Utah. Another win on Monday would mean a sweep of the season series for the second straight season.
Before we get to Monday’s action, let’s take a look at some Warriors Moet Moments during the team’s current winning streak over the Jazz.
December 20, 2016 – Long distance splash is nothing new on Warriors Ground. For several years now, the Warriors have been one of the top three-point shooting teams in the league, and apparently that’s contagious to the fans. Case in point was Oakland native Patrick Nudanu, who banked in a half-court shot during a third-quarter timeout to win $5,000.
Turns out Patrick wasn’t the only fan to wow Warriors Ground that night. Dance Cam Mom was on Warriors Ground that night, as she usually is, and this time she got to perform with the Warriors Dance Team during another break in the action.
December 8, 2016 – The Warriors went on a 29-1 in the first quarter, and Stephen Curry ended it with some typical (for him) spectacular-ness. Seriously, he seems to shoot a ridiculous percentage on shots like these.
Although the Dubs led by more than 20, Utah came back and made a game of it. But the Warriors had an answer for the Jazz comeback attempt: Kevin Durant. The first-year Warriors forward helped stall Utah’s comeback with three fourth quarter dunks in the Dubs’ 106-99 win.
March 30, 2016 – Playing their second road game in as many nights, the Warriors trailed by eight points midway through the fourth quarter, but managed to eek out an overtime victory thanks to some late game heroics from Klay Thompson. Trailing 89-86 in the final minute of regulation, Thompson attempted a three-pointer from the top of the arc, but it clanked off the iron. Shaun Livingston, however, corralled the offensive rebound and found Thompson once more on the wing, who promptly deposited the game-typing three-pointer through the hoop with 15.0 seconds remaining. The Dubs would later go on a 12-2 run in overtime to put away the 103-96 win in Salt Lake City.
March 9, 2016 – There’s splash, and then there’s SPLASH. Stephen Curry displayed some of the latter when he ended the first half in the most spectacular of fashion.
“That’s not a surprise anymore,” Draymond Green said following the Dubs’ 115-94 victory. “As soon as he shot it … I knew it was going in. To say, ‘I know it’s going in’ is crazy but you kind of get a feeling.”
November 30, 2015 – The Warriors are undefeated on the season and are involved in a tight game in a hostile environment in Salt Lake City. Jazz fans want nothing more than to be the first ones to give the Dubs an L on the season, and with the game within three over the final 10 and a half minutes of the game, the atmosphere is tense. Fortunately for the Warriors, they have an MVP, and he delivers. Stephen Curry delivers a go-ahead 3-pointer with 51 seconds left in the game, and the Dubs go on to win 106-103.
