If you ask 5 basketball fans to pick their favorite Stephen Curry play from a game you might get 5 different answers. Let’s look at last night’s game where a questionable to play Curry lit up the Wizards for 32 points.
Fans of passing might pick one of Curry’s fancy behind the back assists. Fans of ball handling might pick the play where Steph toyed around with Ramon Sessions before hitting a deep 3. Fans of tough shots might go with Curry’s tear drop. Curry did a little of everything for everybody last night including “throwing down” a dunk for the dunk fans.
“It’s good to have Steph Curry back doing what he does,” Thompson said. “Mesmerizing the crowd, mesmerizing us and keeping us in the first half.”
Steph not only kept them alive in the first half but he went off in the 3rd quarter scoring 14 points and Golden State’s final 9 – all with a bad foot.
“It’s still not pain-free, but it felt fine,” he said of his foot. “Once you start playing, the adrenaline kicks in, and you don’t feel anything. It was good to just break a sweat in the first quarter and feel active and not limited at all.”
It’s just not fair for the competition but it’s all good for the fans.
