I’ve got the magic in me…

The Warriors may have gotten off to a slow start but the second-half was absolutely magical.

The Warriors defeat the Grizzlies, 117-101,  to move to 10-1 on the season and have won eight straight games. Good luck stopping these guys because they're on fire. Klay Thompson lead the team with 27 points.  

About that tie at halftime… forget about it.  The Warriors got a little of that third quarter magic back that we saw a lot last season and Roaracle was rocking. The Dubs went from a 58-58 tie at halftime to the Warriors pulling ahead by 19 points in the third. To finish off that nice third quarter, Steph blocked Wayne Seiden’s layup. The bench went wild.

The Warriors got a steal with Alfonzo McKinnie. He continues to contribute and impress. He finished with 14 points. We even saw a slam dunk from him. 

Quinn Cook hasn't seen much playing time this season but he did against Memphis and he made the most of it. Cook dropped four straight 3-pointers in the fourth quarter. 

Another thing to note, DeMarcus Cousins has been way more chill on the bench since his technical and ejection at the Knicks. The whole game you could see him coaching and giving advice to Jordan Bell and some of the other young Dubs. 

The Warriors are back in action on Thursday against the Milwaukee Bucks who are second in the Eastern Conference. Coverage starts at 6:00 pm. Catch all the action on 95.7 The Game.
