Things are looking good for the Golden State Warriors.

They have won three straight games, including their most recent win against the Minnesota Timberwolves. It was a road win that was only the second road win of the season. Now they sit at 11-10 a year, which puts them ninth in the Western Conference.

However, in the closing minutes of the game both Draymond Green and Stephen Curry earned technical fouls for celebrating on the bench. Green’s came first, and Curry deliberately took hold of his technology. After the game, Green called the whole situation “ridiculous.”

“They told me I was at the lane line” said Green. “I thought I was in the corner, so I don’t know. shit though. It’s the NBA, man. Your teammates make a good move. I didn’t influence the piece like nobody was around. sucks. And the fact that that will count. Come on. It is ridiculous. But whatever. It is what it is.”

When Green and Curry earned their technical fouls, the game was all but over, ending in a 137-114 score. That being said, they must both accept her in their records.

Green lost a season-high 19 points to the Timberwolves in addition to his four rebounds and 11 assists. He finished the night with 6-of-7 from the field, 1-of-2 from three-point land, and 6-of-8 from the free-throw line.

As for Curry, he intervened in a triple-double. He finished the game with 25 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists on 7-of-17 shooting from field and 4-of-11 from three-point land.

Prior to their three-game streak, the Warriors had lost three of their last six games, and earlier this season they were on a five-game losing streak on the road.

Curry spoke recently about how the team starts to figure things out and everyone slowly fits into their roles.

“We know what we can’t do, in terms of the first, what was it, eight away games and just this bag of the season where we just couldn’t put a string of games together,” Curry said. “And we have a great opportunity down the road, those two games are coming up. But the rotations seem to be a bit more consistent on a nightly basis. I think, again, it’s about people understanding their roles, what’s being asked of them, and then getting the sales people to do those things. We have 10 deeps for the most part at the moment and everyone is taking on a specific role, playing hard and smart and moving in the right direction.”

Just as Curry noted, Green repeated the sentiment that the team is turning things around. He said the Warriors “stabilized” after a rocky start.

“I think we need to work on a few things, but we’re stabilized,” Green told reporters. “We’re starting to play our kind of basketball at both ends of the floor. Let’s start getting guys into a groove we need to win at a high level. So I think we’re starting to figure it out.”

So as the Warriors continue to put things together, Curry and Green appear to be leading the charge.
