OK, so, this isn’t going to be a full blog post everybody, but I just have to say something about this.
Steph Curry started the night on the bench for the Golden State Warriors in Game 4 against the Portland Trailblazers. It was supposed to be an easy night for him as he was still recovering from an injury.
Well, starter Shaun Livingston get two technical fouls in the first half and is ejected from the game. Suddenly Steph Curry has to play or else the team does not have a true point guard.
So still recovering from injury Steph Curry scores 13 points in the first 36 minutes, a solid night. Then he woke up in the 4th quarter. He scored 10 points in the final 12 minutes and led the team from a double digit deficit to tie the game and send it to overtime.
Then what did he do? He only scored 17 straight points in OT, which is only 5 minutes long, keep in mind. He finished the game with 40 points, 9 rebounds, and 8 assists.
After draining a 3 in OT, Curry yelled to the crowd, “I’m back! I’m back!” according to ESPN.com. My whole apartment was jumping up and down screaming the same exact thing after the game.
In coach Steve Kerr’s post-game press conference, he opened up simply stating that Steph Curry would start Wednesday. Was that even a hard decision for Coach Kerr?
