SHC Takes on Chase Center

The Warriors wrapped up another win and moved to 8-1 on the season.

Last Friday, SHC students were treated to a classic Warriors performance against the New Orleans Pelicans. The Dubs won by over 40 for a final score of 126-85, while guards Jordan Poole and Stephen Curry stole the show with 26 and 19 points respectively. Gary Payton II, recently re-signed by the Warriors, also put up an impressive stat line with 6 rebounds, 3 assists, and 17 points. The absences of key players Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram proved to be too much for the Pelicans, as seen in Golden State’s near-constant lead throughout the game. Despite a 20 point and 15 rebound performance for Lithuanian center Jonas Valančiūnas, the Pelicans were unable to match the home team’s explosive offensive power. At the time of writing, the Dubs have the best record in the NBA, and lead the league in points scored, assists, and three-pointers. Despite big-name players including Klay Thompson and James Wiseman still out due to injury, Golden State has strung together win after win, and the Pelicans game was just another example. Not only was it a special performance, but overall a great night for Dubs fans from SHC in attendance. Students from every grade were present and watched a pregame show from the SHC Dance Team, as well as the national anthem played by our very own band.
