NBA Game Notes (April 23, 2023)
Here are the NBA game notes for games that were played on April 23, 2023.
Warriors Narrowly Escape
The Golden State Warriors narrowly escaped with a 126-125 victory over the Sacramento Kings, squaring their Western Conference First Round series at two games apiece. The series shifts to Sacramento for Game 5 on Wednesday.
The Warriors’ Stephen Curry scored a team-high 32 points, but almost became the goat (not the GOAT) by signaling for a timeout the Warriors didn’t have with 42.4 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter.
Curry shot 11-22 from the field — including 5-11 from 3-point range — and made all five of his free throws. It’s the 39th time Curry has scored at least 30 points with five 3-pointers made in a playoff game, nine more such games than the next two closest players combined:
39 — Stephen Curry
17 — James Harden
13 — Klay Thompson
11 — Damian Lillard
11 — Donovan Mitchell
