For anyone who turned the game off after they saw 30-point lead in the 3rd quarter, you missed Luke Walton keeping his starters in long after Stephen Curry and crew hit the bench to crawl back in and make it competitive. From a fan’s perspective, the score ended up close (only a five-point win) but the result was never in doubt, only the betting lines.
