With a commanding 130-102 victory over the Pelicans on Monday night, Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors maintained their perfect road record.
In less than a week, Curry scored 40 points for the second time. To the delight of 17,286 spectators at Smoothie King Center, he once again lit up the court for a season-high 42 points against the Pelicans.
According to NBA.com, Curry stated, “I feed off of it because I love playing basketball and being in that environment when the game kind of turns up like that and the home crowd enjoys the entertainment value and good basketball and the show.” However, it’s not like a message of any kind. Simply hooping.
Curry blasted seven 3-pointers from all around the court, giving the awestruck Pelicans supporters their money’s worth. With 4:39 remaining, the NBA’s best shooter ignited the crowd with his seventh dagger three of the game, giving the Warriors a commanding 120-92 lead.
Steve Kerr, his coach, was in disbelief.
“He’s really hot. Kerr remarked, “Watching him is incredible. He really does look amazing for 35 years old. However, he works hard every summer and never stops trying to improve. In his training, he’s always looking for ways to get better. He is called Steph Curry for a reason. It’s really breathtaking to observe.
In just thirty minutes, Curry finished his master class with five rebounds, five assists, and two steals.
Stephen Curry and Dillon Brooks’s crude conversation
The Houston Rockets enforcer had a terrible outcome after the altercation with Dillon Brooks and Curry. After cooking Brooks in the second half of the Warriors’ 106-95 victory over the Houston Rockets on Sunday night, Curry put Brooks in his place.
“I’ll prove to you my abilities. Curry reportedly remarked to Brooks, “I still remember what you said,” just before making his fourth 3-pointer of the game in the fourth quarter.
Curry opened the first night of his back-to-back road games against the Rockets with six 3-pointers. Next night, he was even more impressive, making seven 3-pointers against the Pelicans.
Curry is having a terrific season to begin with, averaging 33.5 points on the strength of a league-high 24 made 3-pointers on an absurd 47% shooting clip.
