Barrett notches career high as Knicks stop Warriors

RJ Barrett recorded a career-best with 28 points and the New York Knicks used a 40-point first quarter to build a lead it relinquished only momentarily in a victory over the Golden State Warriors at San Francisco.

All five Knicks starters scored in double figures, including Mitchell Robinson with 18 points and Julius Randle with 16 points, as New York opened a four-game Western swing with an impressive win.

The Knicks earned their third .

Stephen Curry had a game-high 30 points but shot just 5-for-14 on 3-point attempts for the Warriors.

The Warriors lost Draymond Green to a disputed technical ejection in the second quarter, when he appeared to be yelling at his own teammate James Wiseman — but the officials saw it differently. With reports from Agence France Presse
