Golden State Warriors’ marquee scorer, Stephen Curry knocked 36 points playing only for 3 quarters as they rout past Cleveland Cavaliers. Not only did Curry show his experience, but Draymond Green matched his career-best 16 assists in this particular match-up against Cavaliers. Curry was 13 for 19 from the floor and 7 for 11 from beyond the arc, and sat out the fourth quarter with the outcome all but decided. The two-time MVP is averaging 37.3 points over his last six games and showing no wear and tear in a season in which he is carrying a heavy offensive burden.
Curry is just the second guard to score at least 25 points and shoot 50% or better from the field in 10 consecutive games since the 1970-71 season, when such data first started being tracked. Michael Jordan is the other. Curry said his chemistry with Green plays a huge part in his success of the Golden State Warriors.
Stephen Curry knocks game high 36 to leads Warriors in handing Cavaliers their 8th loss
“It’s built on eight, nine years of experience that comes out whether we draw something up or just kind of feel it or see it,” Warriors’ leader Curry said as per ESPN. “It definitely helps just to find open space out there and exploit how teams are going to be aggressive on me.”
Collin Sexton led the Cavaliers with 23 points. Cleveland shot 38.9% from the floor and was winless on its five-game road trip.
“You have to look in the mirror and be honest with yourself and see areas you can improve,” Cavaliers coach J.B. Bickerstaff said. “And we’ve got room to grow.”
Matching Michael Jordan is no joke for any player, but seeing Stephen Curry do it with so much ease is highly commendable.
