Steph Curry has been putting on epic displays of scoring brilliance all season and Monday in Philadelphia he kept it going with 49 points against the top team in the Eastern Conference. The Sixers threw everything at Steph (even his kid brother Seth), but there was no stopping the top scorer in the NBA (just passed Bradley Beal) who put up 30+ points for the 11th straight game. He now has 10+ 3-point field goals in four of the last five games. Meanwhile, the Warriors have won five of the last six. Ray and Joe discuss the hottest player on the planet and chat about the potential of this Golden State team.
After getting the news that James Wiseman is probably out for the season with a knee injury, Golden State had a feel-good win Monday over Denver, one of the top teams in the Western Conference. Steph Curry passed Wilt Chamberlain to become the Warriors all-time leading scorer and went on to score 53 points. Ray and Joe discuss the win, Steph’s accomplishment and what the Wiseman injury means going forward.
Steph Curry followed up his 57-point game in Dallas with a 32-point effort and more sensational shots in San Antonio, but the result was the same – a close loss. 20 Golden State turnovers were a big part of the reason the Warriors dropped a game in San Antonio for the 41st time in the last 44 games there. Ray and Joe debate when Curry should come back into the game in the 4th quarter of close games after Steve Kerr explains his big picture viewpoint.
The Warriors pulled off another dramatic comeback win against a Los Angeles team, this time beating the defending champion Lakers at Staples Center on Monday night 10 days after a thrilling win over the Clippers. Ray and Joe analyze the victory that saw Golden State rebound from a 19-point deficit. Kelly Oubre, Jr. was impressive in his best game as a Warrior and the bench had solid contributions all around. In the end it was Steph Curry’s big 3 that made the difference and “the old” Draymond was also a big key to the win.
The Warriors were starting to get on a roll until they ran into a rough 4th quarter in a loss to Myles Turner and the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday.
