A long five-game road trip comes to a bizarre end for the Golden State Warriors. The streak of 30 point games by Stephen Curry came to a stop. Then the Dubs lost a close game to the Washington Wizards behind an off night by their red-hot superstar. Curry was only 7/25 from the field and 2/14 from deep. Off-shooting nights like this from Curry always come as a surprise after the supernova scoring bender he’s been in.
Curry was the fourth leading scorer during the Dubs’ most recent defeat to the Wizards, which resulted in only 18 points ending his 30+ point game streak.
“It was a special ride for sure. I never really get too hyped up on individual streaks or accolades like that. But there were some historical names that I was able to pass. Doing something at this age was pretty special,” Curry told ClutchPoints.
Special it was. It seemed Curry was invincible. Over the last few weeks, the Warriors star was the best basketball player on the planet without question. The instances he’d scored less than 40 points throughout this streak turned into his new version of a bad game. It placed him right back in the conversation of potentially being league MVP. He’d definitely have much higher odds if his team had a better record.
“It was a great run. Something that hasn’t been done before. It was going to end at some point, now you got to start another one,” the Warriors’ two-time MVP Curry stated.
Golden State ends their five-game road trip with a respectable record of 3-2. Now the Warriors are headed home for Friday’s game against the Denver Nuggets. It will be the first game this season with fans and family in attendance, and the Warriors can’t wait to soak in the atmosphere.
