The story of the night was the triumphant return of MVP Stephen Curry. Curry shot 6-of-8 from downtown, a couple from the logo, to rack up 28 points.

Klay Thompson added 21 points, while Andre Iguodala chipped in 15 points, four rebounds and four assists off the bench.

Malcolm Brogdon scored 18 points while Greg Monroe had 12 points with seven rebounds for Milwaukee.

Milwaukee came streaking out of the gate, racing out to a 10-3 lead on Giannis Antetokounmpo's dunk just over three minutes into the contest. However, with just under four minutes remaining, the Warriors went on a 13-2 tear to bring it within two to close out the first. The Bucks, playing the second half of a back-to-back, lost for the second time in 10 games. Whereas the Bucks couldn't miss at the start of the first quarter, it was the Warriors' turn in the second, as they put together arguably their best shooting quarter thus far of the 2016-17 campaign. Warriors vs Bucks venue is at Oracle Arena. Matthew Dellavedova was booed by the Oracle crowd every time he touched the ball.

It ultimately seemed a bit unwarranted, considering he was practically a non-entity on the court tonight with only five points and some poorly thought-out fouls. It was also the Warriors' third consecutive victory overall following a season-high, three-game losing streak.

NOTES: Warriors coach Steve Kerr disclosed before the game that injured SF Kevin Durant (sprained knee) will make the trip to Oklahoma City for the Warriors' game against the Thunder on Monday night.

According to the San Jose Mercury News' Daniel Brown, Durant was getting shots up at the team's Saturday morning shootaround.
