Perhaps the only thing fantasy owners can carp about would be his six turnovers. Coach Steve Kerr called his team "fried" yesterday and playing in altitude on a back-to-back is tough.
It was another decent night at the office for Steph, however, and he was 4-of-4 from the free-throw stripe, too. Curry gets Russell Westbrook in an MVP showdown on Tuesday.
He has made a 3-pointer in each of his 37 games this season, and he has hit a triple in 58 straight dating back to his 0-of-11 night on Feb. Curry hit just 4-of-13 shots, but he wasn't the only Warrior who struggled -- Kevin Durant had 17 points on 5-of-13 shooting and called this his worst game of the season, while Draymond hit 3-of-11 shots for eight points. Curry also contributed six assists, five rebounds and two steals.
Curry's shoulder issue is very minor and he was coming off a 49-point outing, so we'll chalk this up as an off night. Perhaps the only thing fantasy owners can carp about would be his six turnovers.
With Curry back in the starting five, Patrick Mc Caw will return to the bench, and he'll lose most his appeal with the Dubs' stars all healthy.
He looked fine while going through his pregame routine, so he should be able to get back out there tonight without any sort of limitations, which will queue Patrick Mc Caw's return to the second unit.
That and not rebounding the ball well was their undoing today, and the Warriors usually find themselves losing in net possessions because of those two aforementioned issues. 16 in Boston and he only made 2-of-4 from the line. It was the 11th time the Warriors had both Curry and Klay Thompson each score 30-plus points in a game, and of course they're 11-0 in those instances.
"We were never the lead horse in a race in some of the things we looked at," Myers said. Coach Steve Kerr called his team "fried" yesterday and playing in altitude on a back-to-back is tough.
Golden State absolutely destroyed the Raptors in the first half, committing one turnover with 22 assists on 32 made field goals (71.1% shooting).
They nearly gave it away in the second half, but held on for a 127-125 win, despite Curry missing a few late free throws.
To nobody's surprise, the Warriors were not busy at the deadline and didn't make a move today.
They were not playing well with losses in three of their last four, but it's really all about their turnovers.
