Fantastic playmaker became the first player since the great Michael Jordan (1989-90 season), who managed to record 118 points in the first three games of the season.
Last year’s MVP of the championship and the Golden State Warriors basketball player, Stephen Curry, again prepared an incredible show in the victory over the New Orleans Pelicans. He scored as many as 53 points and practically alone secured the third triumph of his team in the new season. In the two matches against Alvin Gentry’s team, Curry scored an impressive 93 points to prove that he will be a top candidate for another MVP title.
In addition to 53 points, he recorded nine assists, four steals and four rebounds in less than 36 minutes on the field. He missed only one point to achieve career record but broke one in the third quarter with 28 points scored. His shot, his movement on the floor and confidence is built on the level above compared to last season. The US media shared explosive epithets for the 27-year-old player.
The Pelicans have tried everything, and how much he was proved unstoppable with a shot for three points over the hands of enormous Anthony Davis. Curry said that he laughed to himself why even took the shot. On the contrary, Davis said that it was a silly attempt that luckily came in.
Including the match against the Houston Rockets, where he scored 25, fantastic Curry has now become the first player since Michael Jordan (1989-90 season), who managed to record 118 points in the first three games of the season. He literally could choose moves on the court of “Smoothie King Center”, considering that he’s one of the players who can almost entirely read any situation. The incredible point guard showed his movements and “ridiculous” assists behind his back, over his head, and some rarely seen dribbling.
In the shadow of Ohio born point guard was Draymond Green with 21 points and 6 rebounds, while Klay Thompson scored 19. On the opposing side, the great Anthony Davis dominated with 26 points, 15 rebounds and 4 assists, Jrue Holliday helped him with 22 points and 6 assists. Ryan Anderson almost recorded a double-double with 19 points and 9 rebounds, and Tony Douglas scored 17 points along with 4 assists.
Golden State Warriors are now perfect 3-0 at the start of the new season, with scoring almost 120 points on average. The next game the reigning champions will play tonight against their West Conference rivals Memphis Grizzlies. The Grizzlies gave them a big scare in last year’s championship run. The Warriors finished the series 4-2, but the defensive approach of Memphis can cause a lot of problems for the shooting team like Golden State is. The game will take place at Oracle Arena in Oakland.
