“It’s just not fair.”
We imagine that’s what Washington Wizards fans were thinking Wednesday as Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry dropped 51 points on their helpless and hapless team in a 134-121 victory.
Of course, high scoring margins are nothing new for Curry, but he somehow found a way to wow us once again with his hotter-than-normal start in D.C.
Curry lit up the Verizon Center by hitting six 3-pointers in the first nine minutes of action, finishing 9 of 10 from the field in the first quarter for 25 points.
Ten shots in the first quarter? Yikes, Steph, could you share the ball? Warriors coach Steve Kerr knows what we’re talking about.
Alas, Draymond Green saved the day with his 10th triple-double of the season. Thank goodness someone can share the rock on that team. (We’re kidding, of course.)
In an effort to underscore that sharing is caring, Green even went out of his way to cool Curry down after the game …
… which produced one of the best photos of this NBA season, if not ever.
Curry finished with 11 3-pointers in the game, one shy of tying Kobe Bryant and Donyell Marshall for the single-game record.
As amazing as he’s been on a nightly basis this season, though, it’s his consistency that’s been most remarkable. One prime example? Exactly 364 days before Curry torched the Wizards with 11 3-pointers in a 13-point victory, he had 10 3-pointers in a 14-point victory over the Dallas Mavericks. Now that’s impressive.
God bless the Warriors — and everyone who has to play them.
