Durant's double-double lifts Warriors past Nets 116-100

Durant had 28 points and 11 assists, Cook scored a season-high 27 and the Warriors used another big run in the third quarter to pull away and beat the Brooklyn Nets 116-100 on Saturday.

Cook was a beast in his first start of the season, making 11-of-16 shots including three 3-pointers. Fortunately, he's played well in a variety of other ways, posting averages of 7.6 points, 7.9 assists and 7.2 rebounds per game.

Cook has been largely out of the rotation for most of the season, but has actually scored in double-figures in each of his last four games played.

"Our guys do a great job of just making you feel important, making you feel apart of the team". "When his number is called he's able to go out there and produce, and that's just because of the work he puts in every day". Curry now leads the National Basketball Association in scoring at 29.5 points per game, ahead of Joel Embiid (28.8), Kemba Walker (28.3), Zach LaVine (27.4) and teammate Kevin Durant (26.8). He is a great bench guard and fits perfectly into the starting line-up when Curry is out.

"I'm thinking about a lot of points being scored", Durant said as he walked around.

Klay Thompson added 24 points on an uneven shooting night while Damian Jones had eight points and six rebounds for the Warriors. Cook finished with an efficient shooting performance shooting eleven of sixteen from the field and three for five from the three-point line. "Obviously it's not in front of thousands of fans, it's a different atmosphere when it's live action, but you're still getting your reps up". Earlier this season Dinwiddie wore a pair of white shoes with a picture of 11-time All-Star Allen Iverson.

The matchups against Golden State's bigs looked enticing, but the Warriors did a solid job of sending help to meet the ball-handler in the lane, something the Nets never really adjusted to.

Stephen Curry has a mild to moderate left groin strain. "He had better mobility, less pain so it's a good sign". And even though Curry's primary backup, Shaun Livingston, is scheduled to return Monday after missing the last seven games, Cook likely will start against the Clippers in Los Angeles. Coach Steve Kerr said it doesn't appear to be significant.
