The Atlanta Hawks secured a thrilling 141-134 victory over the Golden State Warriors in overtime on Saturday night. Dejounte Murray of the Hawks played a pivotal role, hitting a clutch jumper in the final seconds of regulation to force overtime and then scoring seven consecutive points in the extra period. Despite a remarkable 60-point performance by Stephen Curry for the Warriors, it wasn’t enough to secure the win.
The Hawks and Warriors were on the second night of a back-to-back, and the game was filled with excitement. Murray’s 14-footer in the dying seconds of regulation tied the game at 123 apiece, sending it into overtime. However, Curry had a chance to seal the victory for the Warriors before the end of regulation, but his running bank shot fell short.
In overtime, the Hawks took control, scoring the first 11 points of the period. Onyeka Okongwu and Jalen Johnson made crucial contributions, and Murray sealed the win with a three-point play and two jumpers. Curry did his best to keep the Warriors in the game, scoring eight of their 11 overtime points. He finished the night with an incredible 60 points, his second career 60-point game.
Trae Young showcased his skills for the Hawks, matching Curry almost shot for shot. He led the team with 35 points, including seven three-pointers. The Hawks’ big men, Okongwu and Clint Capela, dominated the boards, combining for 39 points and 31 rebounds. Johnson also had an impressive performance, recording a double-double with 21 points and 13 rebounds.
Murray had a somewhat inefficient shooting night, but still managed to contribute 19 points for the Hawks. Bogdan Bogdanovic added 13 points to the scoreboard. For the Warriors, Lester Quinones had 17 points, Jonathan Kuminga scored 16 before fouling out, and Brandin Podziemski recorded a double-double with 15 points and 11 rebounds.
Klay Thompson struggled with his shooting, only managing to score 10 points on 4-of-19 shooting. Kevon Looney provided a spark off the bench with 10 rebounds. Unfortunately, the Warriors also lost Andrew Wiggins to an ankle injury right before halftime.
The intense game was closely contested throughout, with neither team leading by more than eight points in the first half. Curry led all scorers at halftime with 19 points. The Hawks’ victory marks their fourth consecutive win, highlighting their strong form in recent games.
