Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry leaves team in awe in comeback win over LA Clippers

Golden State Warriors star guard Stephen Curry scored 38 points in a 115-105 win over the LA Clippers on Friday night at Chase Center, bringing his team all the way back from a 22-point second-half deficit while reminding the rest of the basketball world just how much more fun the game can be when he goes off on one of his patented hot streaks.

“Pretty awesome, awesome night, considering how the first 28 minutes went,” said Curry, who bounced back after being held to 13 points in Wednesday’s loss to the Clippers.

The latest example of Curry’s brilliance came on a night when the Warriors struggled to find any rhythm during the first half and relied on the two-time MVP to put the team on his back as he has done countless times through the years.

Curry made nine 3-pointers, went 13-for-24 from the field and dished out 11 assists in 36 minutes.

In a week that has already featured Curry scoring 62 points versus the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday, the latest presentation was almost as impressive, given how dominant the Clippers’ defense appeared to be at times early in the match.

“He’s making shots that you be like, ‘Whoa!'” Warriors swingman Andrew Wiggins said. “There’s not a lot of shots that he can’t make. As soon as he steps over half, he’s a threat, so he causes a lot of attention. So when he gets rolling, you just sit back and watch and let him roll.”

In a week full of great performances, Curry’s scoring barrage left teammates and coaches in awe again. It was Curry who sparked a 64-40 second-half run by the Warriors that earned the team its most impressive victory of the season.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr had to chuckle a little while describing how Curry got rolling when things appeared so dim for his team. “Number one, because he’s Steph Curry,” Kerr said. “There’s not too much you have to say beyond it’s just who Steph is. He’s been doing this for many, many years and one of the reasons he’s a two-time MVP and he’s a phenomenal basketball player.

And usually with Steph when he has a tough game he bounces back [in] the next one. That’s part of his character, part of his competitiveness. He found something out there, he found some openings, and got himself going.”
