The Golden State Warriors kicked off a five-game road trip with a game against the Milwaukee Bucks at BMO Harris Bradley Center Friday night.

Prior to tonight’s game, the Warriors got blown out by the Los Angeles Clippers 125-106 at Oracle Arena Wednesday night, while the Bucks escaped with a 110-103 win over the Orlando Magic at home the same night.

The Warriors entered the Bucks’ building and were ready to shoot some Friday night hoops. Kevin Durant made back-to-back buckets early in the first quarter. Draymond Green then made the perfect lob pass to Durant, who proceeded to put his team ahead. Nick Young added a three to end the first in style.

The Warriors led the Bucks 36-27 at the end of the first.

Durant continued to do work in the second quarter. Green ended the first half in a dramatic fashion.

The Warriors carried a 63-49 lead to the locker room at halftime.

Here are the Warriors’ halftime stats:

The famous question “Money like Draymond Green?” was easily answered with a “yup” in the third quarter as Green made a plethora of shots to make it a game.

However, the Warriors trailed the Bucks 82-80 at the end of the third.

Andre Iguodala made things happen in the fourth quarter. Iguodala set up a simple two for David West, who put it in the basket to tie the game late in the fourth. Durant and Green had a mini party of three-pointers too.

The Warriors got back in the win column with a 108-94 victory over the Bucks. With the win, Golden State won their 11th straight road game.

Here are the Warriors’ final stats:

Warriors’ starters: Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Zaza Pachulia, Klay Thompson, and Patrick McCaw.
