You wanna see something really scary (shout out to the real 80’s Horror fans who know the movie I’m referencing)?
Steph Curry rolled into Sunday’s game as Billy The Puppet from the ‘Saw’ franchise and left the game going scoreless in the final quarter of an another disappointing L. This time it came against the the Detroit Pistons, winners of their last three and owners of the best record in the East (5-2!). The loss for the Warriors — who blew a 14-point 2nd half lead — drops them to 6th in the West with a 4-3 record (2-2 at home!).
“We’re really close to being ourselves,” Said Curry, who did finish with 27 points on 11-of-17 shooting, 8 assists and 6 boards. “For the most part those little things are keeping us from really opening up the gates in games like tonight where we had a pretty comfortable lead in the third quarter.”
The surprising and scary-looking (so far) Pistons got a team-high 23 from Avery “I really do have hops” Bradley, 22 from Reggie Jackson, 18 boards and 5 steals from Dre Drummond and 15 from Stanley “breakout year(?)” Johnson.
Here’s two more stats from the game: The Warriors turned the ball over 26 times (3 by Curry in the 4th) and Curry’s missed free-throw in the third quarter was his first of the season, ending his streak at 54 straight.
Also, Curry fans would like me to tell you that he only played five minutes during the fourth. And Pistons’ fans would like to respond with, “Excuses, excuses.”
BEST HORROR MOVIES OF 2017
Since we have this Halloween tie-in going on here, here’s my list of the best Horror films (in alphabetical order and ‘Get Out’ does belong in the genre) of 2017 so far.
- Annabelle Creation
- Get Out
- Happy Death Day
- It Comes At Night
- The Girl With All The Gifts
- The Void
You might have heard of all of these with the exception of ‘The Void,’ which I like to call ‘Escape from the prince of darkness thing’s assault on the ward.’ So here’s the trailer for the John Carpenter-inspired film.
