The New Orleans Pelicans thrashed the Golden State Warriors (141–105) on their home court at the Chase Center on Wednesday night.
Despite being among the NBA’s finest teams for the previous ten years, the Warriors have had a very difficult season.
They are currently on a two-game losing streak, and during both of those games, the squad has been jeered by the crowd.
Steph Curry, the two-time MVP, spoke with the media following the difficult defeat and was questioned about the jeers.
Curry: “I don’t take it any certain type of way. Honestly, I’m booing myself. Booing our team in my head because of the way we’re playing. It is what it is. Fans are gonna react the way that they want. It’s our job to give them something to cheer about, and we have not done that.”
In 25 minutes of action, Curry ended with 15 points, one rebound, six assists, one steal, and a shooting percentage of 4/13 from the field and 3/8 from three.
In 35 games, he is shooting 39.8% from three-point range and 44.7% from the field, averaging 26.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 4.7 assists.
With a 17–20 record through their first 37 games, the Warriors are the 12th seed in the Western Conference.
They will now play four games in a row away from home after the Pelicans, starting on Friday night at the United Center against the Chicago Bulls.
