In a pivotal moment with the score at 105-104 and only 10 seconds remaining, Curry delivered a clutch three-pointer, securing a three-point lead for the Warriors. Despite limited support from teammates, the subsequent player, Jonathan Kuminga, contributed with 13 points, 1 rebound, and 1 assist.

Presently occupying the 11th position in the Western Conference standings, the Warriors find themselves outside the promotion playoffs with a record of 10-11. Their next challenge involves a journey to the Paycom Center to face the in-form Oklahoma City Thunder.

Steph Curry with the “sleep-sleep” celebration

Entering the final 15 seconds, with the Warriors holding a mere one-point lead against the Trail Blazers, Curry, acclaimed as the NBA’s premier shooter, had a different plan. Executing a three-pointer after cleverly eluding Anfernee Simons of the Blazers, he ignited the crowd’s ecstatic cheers and reprised the “sleep-sleep” celebration from the 2022 NBA finals against the Boston Celtics.

This caused a frenzy on social media, especially X (formerly called Twitter). Below are fan’s reactions:

The Warriors appear to be overly reliant on Curry’s performances. For the team to recover and regain its form from last season, Klay Thompson and Andrew Wiggins must step up. Currently, Curry averages 29.1 points, 5 rebounds, and 4.7 assists. The closest player to him is Klay Thompson who is averaging just 15.7 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 2.3 assists. Hopefully, it isn’t too late for the Warriors.
