10:47 pm
the first fan in the building to see the warriors take on the nuggets tonight we go to the 2nd half. that's when the dubs really started to pull away some nice ball movement there as step hits the corner 3. oh, boy, you've got to be quicker than that. denver. but in this one, it was carrying the dubs who are pretty much always one step ahead. 3rd quarter. steph falls back and hits another 3 and he is loving it. why not? he finished with 32 points dream. had a double double 19 assists and 12 boards and the final score. one 19, 2.97, you know, was there to see it in person or kylen mills feeling pretty lucky tonight. kylen well as the by like in chase center, having fans back. finally. >> hey kate and 5 here at chase center. a lot of excitement in the air. you could definitely tell fans were pumped up to get back in the stands about 1900 people in attendance. but it sounded like a lot more just based on how loud it was. also, we're all used to it being like dead silent in here. so it was a nice change of pace. that's
10:48 pm
for sure. and you know, the players really appreciate it. we just heard from draymond green a couple moments ago during the postgame about this. he said the fans really did provide the team a boost and he want to thank them again, just so appreciative of being able to have dubnation back in chase center. it was a lot of fun to watch this game. a great team win for the dobbs. and again, just having fans back made it really special real boost of energy, as you said, his dream on said, but the nuggets are good kylen there. the 4th best team in the western conference right now. so how did the does get it done. >> yeah. this was a great team win. like i mentioned a couple things stood out to me for steph curry back to being steph curry after an off night just 18 points against the wizards ending his 11 game. 30 point streak tonight. >> 32 points for steph. so he was looking much more like his usual self another big thing that i notice kelly who brain junior major contributions off the bench since he switched over to that new role coming in off the bench. he seems to really be excelling in that
10:49 pm
role and he told us during a media session earlier this week. he's embracing it and that does seem to be true. also jordan poole continuing to come through off the bench. he finished with 15 points. i believe so. he looked really good. we just saw contributions all the way around. draymond green. 19 assists, typical dray setting up other guys. you love to see him in steph curry when things start to click. so it was just a lot of fun to watch this game. the team definitely got it done and played some great basketball. all right. let's hope they can keep this momentum going. thank highland. good to see you out there tonight. >> how about some baseball a's on the road in baltimore. they were looking for win number 12 in a row out. top of the 5th inning. mon loriano at the plate for oakland and he. >> goes yard. it's 2 nothing game. so that gave oakland a 3. nothing lead and they would end up winning 3 to one. so they have now won 12 in a row. hard to believe when they started the and 6 years. but
