Often when Golden State Warriors need an exemplary hero to make them bounce back, it has been the 3-point king, Stephen Curry. The same case was today as Curry knocked game-high 38 points to ensure Warriors beat Rockets 125-109 to bounce back to winning ways. James Wiseman withstood another injury in the game as Andrew Wiggins poured 25 points.
Stephen Curry interesting struck his 6th 30-point game in a row, this is the longest streak of his career. Jordan Poole added 21 for the Dubs. Curry had five 3s and scored Golden State’s final 20 points in the third quarter. He also made a brilliant three-point play that left John Wall stunned.
Stephen Curry leads Golden State Warriors against Houston Rockets
Talking about the that stunning 3-pointer, Stephen Curry dribbled around Wall near the arc, bounced the ball behind his back to his right hand then banked in the lay-up and was fouled. The two-time MVP, who playfully flexed during pre-game introductions, ran up the nearby stands then returned to the court and made the free throw to make it 80-65.
Wiseman, the second overall pick in the draft who missed 11 games earlier this season with a wrist injury, was shaken up in the second quarter when his dunk attempt was blocked hard by KJ Martin. Wiseman fell awkwardly on his right side and got up limping before being taken to the locker room for further examination on his right knee.
