History will record Thursday night’s game as a 103-90 victory for the Golden State Warriors. But sometimes history fails to capture the moment of pure athletic perfection.

That’s right, folks: Ron Baker outscored two-time reigning MVP Steph Curry. It was close at halftime, with Ron nursing a slim 7-6 lead, but the Wichita St. alum turned it on in the second half. This has to rank among the greatest performances of the Dolan Era.

In other, less important news, the Warriors allowed the Knicks to hang around more or less until the third quarter, when they did what the Warriors usually do to the Knicks.

The Warriors snuffed out Kristaps Porzingis with a vengeance. The Unicorn was dominated by Draymond Green for the third time in his career. He just doesn’t have the answer for that mouth-breathing nut-stomper.

Brandon Jennings was pretty dang bad, but at least he managed to cross up Curry once:

Willy Hernangomez got some serious burn, and did that thing he does where he makes post defenders look like scrubs.

Recap to come. Ron.
