Warriors have their plans in place for skipping White House visit

Why the Warriors didn't visit the White House

The Warriors didn't want to wade into much political talk at their pregame shootaround Wednesday, a day after they went to the museum.

His performance came nearly a year after he suffered a sprained knee in the opening minutes of the Warriors' game against the Wizards in Washington, an injury that would sideline him for five weeks. Golden State had several options for their visit to D.C., including a trip to Durant's hometown which is nearby the nation's capital and an invitation from D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to visit the U.S. Capitol, according to ESPN. Durant hung 16 first-quarter points on the Wizards, on the way to 36-21 lead at the end of the first period of play.

In lieu of the customary White House trip, Golden State toured the National Museum of African American History and Culture on Tuesday evening with more than four dozen students.

"It was a playoff-type game", Beal told the Post. "I think we wear teams down a little bit", coach Steve Kerr said after Monday's win against the New York Knicks, another game in which the Warriors upped the ante in the third quarter. The Wizards guard has stepped up his game ever since John Wall went down as he's added more playmaking to his repertoire. He shot 12-of-20 from the field (60.0 percent), 3-of-6 from behind the arc (50.0 percent) and 5-of-6 from the free throw line (83.3 percent). They are now +343 on the season in the third quarter against their opponents. It is not like we are doing anything different. "I wasn't always considered one of the best players on the team".

Last September, President Trump fell back on letting the Warriors visit after getting singled out by Golden State's Steph Curry. "We come out of the halftime with some juice and energy".

Westbrook also scored the game-winning three-pointer in overtime to seal the victory to underline just how valuable he is to the Thunder.

In the teams' first meeting, the Warriors trailed by 10 at home after three quarters, but rallied for a 120-117 win October 27. They owed a lot of their success to the Juniors, Otto Porter and Kelly Oubre, who combined for 48 points on 11-of-15 shooting from beyond the arc with 18 rebounds.

Porter connected on four of his six 3-point attempts to account for nearly half his points.
