In a 128-116 victory last night against his younger brother’s Sacramento Kings, Stephen Curry’s numbers were predictably video-game-esque–38 points on 12-21 shooting with 11 assists and 6 rebounds.
Curry was so dominant that “MVP!” chants bellowed throughout the arena as he shot free throws. Oh ya, the game was played in Sacramento.
Kings forward Rudy Gay was not too pleased with the ubiquity of Warriors fans in the stands. He said post-game:
“About 10 years ago it was Sacramento in Warriors country (at the Oakland Coliseum). So it is what it is.
They are a great basketball team now. I guess all the Warriors fans that are in Sacramento are riding the bandwagon just like everybody else.”
But it’s very difficult to not enjoy the show the NBA’s leading All-Stat vote getter puts on day in and day out. There’s a reason the 35-2 Golden State Warriors are on pace to shatter the Bulls’ 95-96 record for best single-season record at 72-10, and it’s largely due to the awe-inspiring magic of Steph Curry.
Here’s him drilling a three in his younger brother Seth’s eye.
And Curry making Rajon dance a bit before downing a jumper.
