Stephen Curry was on fire last Wednesday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder. He was the main catalyst in the Golden State Warriors victory and he has the Warriors clicking on all cylinders as we apporach the All Star break.
Curry finished with 31 points and seven assists, as the Warriors overcame the team with the best record in the league 104-99 Wednesday night.
“We could have been much better defensively,” Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. “They made a lot of plays inside the paint but they got a lot of points off of our turnovers, too. We didn’t make enough plays down the stretch and they did. They deserved to win this game.”
David Lee chipped in as well with 22 points and 12 rebounds; Lee and Curry’s effort helped the Warriors endure a banner night from probable league MVP Kevin Durant (33 points, nine assists, and 5 rebounds.
Lee ended up making the All Star team, but Curry missed the boat on that one; he might make it in as an injured reserve though.
The Thunder have won seven out of their last eight and are clicking as well; this night was just more about what the Warriors are now capable of. We already knew that the Thunder were playoff contenders, they are just going to have to bring it in a loaded Western Conference. The Thunder thought they would have to worry about all the usual playoff suspects, but now they might have to worry about the Warriors too.
