Stephen Curry hands game-worn jersey to Dez Bryant
Golden State Warriors All-Star guard Stephen Curry had an insane game on Monday evening, scoring 48 points and making 11 three-pointers. After leading his team to victory against the Dallas Mavericks, Curry had some time to sign game-worn items for fans. One of these fans was New Orleans Saints wide receiver Dez Bryant, who got to personally witness Curry’s destruction of his home team.

Bryant’s team had just secured a crucial win, beating the Philadelphia Eagles by a final score of 20-14, and are only one game away from the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, the veteran receiver is on injured reserve after tearing his Achilles tendon just two days after signing with the Saints. The injury did not stop the three-time Pro-Bowler from taking in the Mavericks game and acquiring some of Curry’s gear.
Curry has helped the Warriors to the second-best record in the Western Conference thus far, as they attempt to catch the Denver Nuggets entering the All-Star break. The win boosted the team to 29-14. However, the Nuggets defeated the Portland Trailblazers on Monday, meaning they will retain their half-game lead on Golden State.
The Warriors will be challenged as they attempt to complete their three-peat this year. The Nuggets have looked deadly in streaks, and the entire Western Conference is deeper as a whole. But as long as Curry continues to play at this level, they will like their chances of taking home the championship trophy yet again.
