Stephen Curry has one request when Warriors face Nets without fans
The said game will have no fans in attendance due to the coronavirus outbreak:
Steph says that if game goes on as scheduled tomorrow, he’s hopeful to have music played to keep players’ routine as normal as possible.

Thursday is going to be such a weird game for players on both teams. Assuming the game is still aired on TV, fans at home are going to be able to hear so many things they usually never can.
The Nets game will be only Stephen Curry’s sixth game of the season. After making his grand return last Thursday against the Toronto Raptors, Curry missed the Warriors’ two previous games because of the flu. However, the Dubs star doesn’t have the coronavirus.
In the five games he’s played so far this season, Curry is averaging 20.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 6.6 assists. The two-time MVP and three-time NBA champion is shooting 40.2 percent from the field, 24.5 percent from beyond the arc and a perfect 100 percent from the free-throw line.
Oracle Arena, Golden State’s old home, was easily the loudest stadium in the NBA. The Chase Center was decently loud at the beginning of the season before Curry broke his hand. We say all of this to rehash just how strange Thursday’s game is going to be for the Warriors and Nets.
The Warriors, after getting destroyed by the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday, are 15-50 on the season. They still have the worst record in the NBA and are headed to an early exit for the first time in the Steve Kerr era.
