Steph lit up last night. The Warriors played the Pelicans in Oakland. Steph broke a record he previously tied with Kobe Bryant.
Steph hit his 13 threes throughout 35 minutes of play. Unbelievable. Seems like losing his 3-point streak really got to him, motivated him to go off in his next game. The overall reaction from social media, Twitter for example, is in complete awe, as to be expected. Steph finished the night on 13-17 3 point shooting, 16-26 field goals, 1-2 from the line, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals, for a total of 46 points on the night.
Overall impression of Curry’s game is that he needed this. An outburst like this was expected to come earlier (but again, the team is still gelling together and finding their chemistry again, we need to give them more than 6 games) but on the other hand it’s also scary to note that the season is still young. The Warriors currently sit at 4-2, and they lost their prior game to the young Lakers. They still have a way to go if they want to follow close behind their past successful 2 seasons.
(Another spooky thing to note: Curry hit it his infamous tunnel shot on his first try last night too).
