The Golden State Warriors went to great lengths to keep their plans for what they would do in Washington on Tuesday in lieu of a trip to the White House under wraps.

Instead, on their recent trip to D.C., the team toured the National Museum of African American History and Culture with a group of children from Seat Pleasant Rec Center - where KD's basketball journey began.

While it seems the Warriors are good at nearly everything, the area they most excel in would be shooting, where they rank atop the league in points per game, field goal percentage, 3-point percentage, and free-throw percentage.

"It was attractive", Pelosi told the Washington Post as reported by the Hill. "We've done our part, I think, to try to further that message".

"We appreciate the opportunity to speak on what we believe, say how we feel, knowing we're not going to please everybody in the room and that's ok", Curry said. The Wizards guard has stepped up his game ever since John Wall went down as he's added more playmaking to his repertoire. Over his last 12 games, Porter is averaging 19 points and seven rebounds while shooting an impressive 54 percent from the floor. They are now +343 on the season in the third quarter against their opponents. Coach Steve Kerr? "You're not going to get me to go down that path, sorry", was his reply. It is not like we are doing anything different. "The way he coached the team throughout that time showed we had a lot of pride, and you can see that in this team". The Warriors average over 116 points per game and can score from so many spots on the floor and in so many ways, it makes things hard for opposing defenses. Yes, they have two former MVP's in Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry, but one of the biggest reasons for their success is tempo. Several Warriors players echoed Curry's sentiment including All-Stars Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. "We come out of the halftime with some juice and energy".

The Warriors improved to 3-0 since the All-Star break and beat the Knicks for the eighth straight time, one shy of their longest winning streak in the series.

Durant had 27 points through three quarters as the Warriors took a 15-point advantage into the final frame.

Durant dropped 32 points on 12-of-20 shooting. Washington made it a six-point game with 2:36 remaining after a Markieff Morris jumper, but Golden State simply couldn't be slowed down the stretch.
