Stephen Curry’s big game for Warriors vs. Lakers has Kendrick Perkins going crazy
The Warriors were down pretty much the entire game as LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers kept them at bay. However, Curry and the Dubs came back from a 19-point deficit to steal their seventh win of the season.
Former NBA champion Kendrick Perkins perfectly summed up how the two-time MVP put his DNA on Monday’s game against the defending champs:
“Steph came through with his Ski Mask on and emptied the clip on the Lakers.” Perkins tweeted.
Stephen Curry led his team with a game-high 26 points on a rather poor shooting night where he shot just 8-of-22 from the field. The six-time All-Star also tallied seven assists and was again perfect from the free thrown line (7-of-7). Curry had a step-back trey against Anthony Davis with over a minute to go in the game, which put the Warriors up 115-110.

That shot capped off the incredible 19-point comeback for the Warriors.
Curry also had help on Monday, with Kelly Oubre, Jr. dropping his best scoring evening as a Warrior with 23 points. Andrew Wiggins (18) and Eric Paschall (19) were pretty solid for Golden State as well.
Draymond Green stepped up big time for Dub Nation, as he scored timely buckets to help the Warriors edge out the defending champs. Green ended with seven points, eight boards, and nine assists and provided enough pressure on LeBron James to force him to miss a potential game-winner on the other end.
As Perk always puts it, carry on, Steph.
