Up next for the Warriors is the final game of their three-game East Coast swing in Atlanta against the Hawks on Friday.
The Warriors visit was a complete surprise. The Wizards, meanwhile, allow over 16 points per game off turnovers.
Playing for the 11th time as a visitor in his hometown, Kevin Durant scored nine of his game-high 32 points in the third period, during which the Warriors extended a 58-56 halftime lead to 85-70. The complacency could disappear now that the Warriors don't have the best record in the league and it's the start of the second half of the season. And since the NBA All-Star break, Durant has averaged 26.5 points on 53.8 percent shooting. In the playoffs, you're going to need your superstars.

They have also shot almost 50 per cent from three-point range over those wins as well as cutting out a high number of turnovers.
Only the truly great players can score 25 points on an off night, but that doesn't let Curry off the hook for the poor performance. Mentally, he was just locked in and he's been that way ever since. Curry was limping when he stood up, but shot both of his free throws and was able to run the knock off. This is one of the many examples the Warriors have had turning the ball over that should not happen because of the small opening. For moneyline bets, the line is Washington Wizards: 350, Golden State Warriors: -450.
The kids were students from the Seat Pleasant Activity Center, a recreation and educational facility in Maryland that counts Kevin Durant as a former attendee, and College Track, a nonprofit organization that helps kids prepare for and get into colleges and universities. The Warriors are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Washington and the over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Washington. It's his ninth double-digit assist game of the year. They've got 20 games left on the schedule, meaning Thompson and the Warriors are aiming for a 24-game winning streak-the team is 4-0 since the All-Star break.
Golden State will hit the road again Friday to finish out their three-game trip against the Atlanta Hawks (18-43) at the Philips Arena.
In Los Angeles, the NBA-leading Houston Rockets capped a ideal February with a 105-92 victory over the Clippers to stretch their winning streak to 14 games.
