Golden State Warriors: Stephen Curry Carries Incredible Stretch into Matchup

+Read full article

Derick Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The Golden State Warriors have shocked the NBA as they currently sit at the sixth seed in the Western Conference with the season winding down. While most can sit back in surprise, the Warriors have one guy who is playing like he knew this would happen.

This particular player is averaging 26.4 points, 6.8 assists, 4.3 assists and 1.3 steals per game over his last ten contests. On the season, he is also shooting 45.5% from downtown. Sounds like a sure-fire All Star, right?

Wrong. Stephen Curry was snubbed from this year’s All Star Game while playing some of the best basketball we have seen this season, and apparently the kid took it personally.

There are few players I would like to try and defend less than Curry at the moment. He has been absolutely lights out recently. Tonight, against the New Orleans Hornets, he has a perfect chance for another explosion.

The Hornets have had a less than stellar season and right now are no where near playoff contention. Having no real superstar or even a “star” at this point, New Orleans has struggled to find a real consistent identity night in and night out.

Their best attribute this season has been the play of point guard Greivis Vasquez. He has been truly the biggest surprise in New Orleans this year, putting up 14 points and just over nine assists per game while also grabbing over four rebounds for good measure.

Tonight, Vasquez will have his hands full with Curry and company as he brings a lot of firepower with him. The Warriors also want to win badly towards the end of the season to end the regular season with some momentum going into the postseason. So look for Curry to have his way with the Hornets.

Stephen Curry Puts On A Clinic Against Spurs

NBA fans and media alike were incredibly excited for the first meeting of the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors this season, and many expected an uber-competitive game to take place on Monday night. Well, the game was enthralling, but not very competitive. Stephen Curry put on a clinic, and was dribbling circles around the Spurs throughout. Here's some evidence. If that floater wasn't epic enough, in the second-half Curry added this drive in which he pulled the magic out on Jonathon Simmons.
