Stephen Curry sounds off on technical foul that sparked Warriors run vs. Clippers

Warriors, Stephen Curry, Clippers

The Golden State Warriors walked into the Staples Center and handed the Los Angeles Clippers a double-digit defeat on Sunday. The game was in reach until Stephen Curry happened. He received a technical foul after complaining about not getting a foul call. Then Curry went crazy and closed the game.

“I thought I got fouled. So I let my emotions go, and it definitely fired me up and fired my team up. Then you have to be able to direct that energy into just putting the ball in the basket after that,” Curry told ClutchPoints.

The technical foul happened with 9:07 left in the fourth quarter, with the Warriors holding a 79-70 lead. Over the next three minutes, the lead ballooned to 18 points. During that stretch, Curry knocked down three highlight three-pointers that took the life out of the Clippers.

Do the Warriors have Batman & Robin? Listen here.

Curry led all scorers with 33 points. He also broke a record en route to the Warriors’ 18th win of the season. He became the fastest player ever once again to reach 100 made three-pointers, doing it in just 19 games. His previous record was 20 games, which he has done twice.

If the rest of the NBA learned anything from this game is that you don’t want to make Curry mad. The technical foul seemed like it lit a fire in Curry that he used to burn the Clippers. The final score was 105-90, and the Warriors’ win streak has extended to seven games.

On Tuesday, the Warriors will visit the Phoenix Suns, who are on a winning streak of their own. They’ve tallied a league-best 16 consecutive victories, and Curry and company have plans to stop it there.
