SAN FRANCISCO — The Warriors led after the first quarter, second quarter and third quarter at Chase Center on Saturday night. It looked like they were about to lose the lead in the fourth quarter.

That is, until Steph Curry said otherwise in a thrilling 125-116 overtime win over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Curry put on a superstar performance in the 4th quarter and overtime that will be seen in all the highlights shows. He led the Warriors with 36 points. The slow start didn’t matter for the all-time legend.

29 of his 36 points came between the second half and overtime.

Klay Thompson dropped 22 points, Donte DiVincenzo had a huge 20 points and Jamichael Green scored a season-high 18 points off the bench. For so long, the Bucks were the better team — even without their best player, Giannis Antetokounmpo. On the down side, the Warriors’ composure on their home court cost them a three-game losing streak.

Here are three ways for the Warriors to improve on the season to 35-33 and 28-7 at home.

Second-Half Splash Brothers

JaMichael Green was the Warriors’ leading scorer at halftime with 13 points. DiVincenzo was right behind with 12. The Splash Brothers – Curry and Thompson – combined for … 11 points.

Curry was 3 of 9 in the first half, and made only one of his five shots from beyond the arc. Thompson had three fouls to his name and made just one shot. Then came the second half.

Clay came alive in the third quarter with 11 points and three 3-pointers. Curry added seven as the Warriors held a slim lead going into the fourth. The final period of regulation, however, numbered about 30.

He scored 13 points in the fourth, in which his clutch gene popped out on his right arm. Enjoy it, that’s all. Three days before his 35th birthday, Curry reminded everyone just how special he really is.

In overtime, Curry added another nine points and Thompson scored four for Golden State as well. They are the greatest shooting backcourt of all time for a reason. It was a statement, and a poignant reminder why.

Milwaukee natives Kevon Looney and Jordan Poole swapped spots on Saturday night in San Francisco. Poole moved back to the bench in the Looney’s starting lineup. Here’s a look at how the two fared against their hometown team.

Looney did what he always does, giving away all the little things in a game. The rim wasn’t kind to Lonnie all night as he shot 3 of 11. But he also finished with a double-double, scoring 11 points and grabbing a game-high 15 rebounds.

He also had a career-high five steals.

Poole’s fluctuating season continued. All four of his assists came in the first quarter. He scored 13 points off the bench, but was 4 of 13 shooting overall.

Then there’s DiVincenzo. The former Buck enjoyed another great game against his old team. To accompany his 20 points, DiVincenzo made six threes and had 10 rebounds, three assists and two steals. The eye test matched the advanced numbers as DiVincenzo was a plus-17.

Hug a friend, share a kiss and crack open a one. The Warriors, after what feels like an eternity, finally led after the first quarter. In fact, it took over a month to do so.

Although it ended with a Bobby Portis corner 3-pointer at the buzzer, the Warriors were up 28–26 in the second quarter. This is the first time since February 11, exactly a month ago, where the Warriors were up after the first quarter.

They had gone 11 straight games without a lead after the end of one period, and had trailed in 10 of them.

There also came a surprise contributor, breaking the ugly streak. Curry was not in the show. He only had two points and missed both of his 3-point attempts. Thompson scored four points and picked up two early fouls.
