Golden State Warriors swap White House visit for African-American history museum

Instead of making the traditional trip to the White House, the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors on Tuesday visited the Smithsonian National Museum of African-American History and Culture African American in Washington, D.C. In addition to inviting children from his hometown to visit the museum and spend time with the Warriors, Durant recently pledged $10 million for a program to help disadvantaged students in Prince George's County. They held the Wizards to just 40 percent shooting in a topsy-turvy performance that featured two great quarters, the first and third, while Washington fought back in the second and fourth to keep the game from getting out of hand. Bradley Beal is averaging 23.7 points and 4.5 rebounds while Otto Porter averaging 14.6 points and 6.4 rebounds.

"It was attractive. It was lovely", Pelosi explained.

"To be honest, we didn't even think about the championship".

Curry's 54-point game is still his career high, as he went 11 for 13 from three-point range.

Friday's contest will mark the Wizards fourth straight nationally televised game as the Wizards hope to continue their surge towards the National Basketball Association playoffs. Then Iguodala and Curry made a series of free throws to ice the game. "We wanted to give them an opportunity to experience that and experience us in that kind of environment would be most impactful". The Wizards guard has stepped up his game ever since John Wall went down as he's added more playmaking to his repertoire.

The Warriors have won three straight since the All-Star break and six of seven overall.

"The White House is a great honor, but there are other circumstances that we felt not comfortable going", Thompson told reporters Monday night, the New York Post reported.

Down by one at halftime, the Warriors outscored NY 39-18 in the third.

"The kids - their smiles lit up the room", said Warriors' coach Steve Kerr. It is not like we are doing anything different. Us as a team, on the court. 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.

However, Steph Curry and Durant's combined for 57 points proved too much for a Wizards team coming off last night's hard-fought victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.
