Stephen Curry leaves Warriors game after suffering left adductor strain vs. Bucks

Stephen Curry

In what some people touted as a potential NBA Finals preview, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry left the game against the Milwaukee Bucks after suffering a left adductor strain.

The Bucks have manhandled the Warriors in front of the defending champions’ home crowd, making the decision to have Curry take the rest of the night off that much easier with the visiting team’s lead appearing virtually insurmountable when the two-time Most Valuable Player sustained the injury.

Stephen Curry played a total of 26 minutes and managed to notch measly numbers of 10 points, one rebound, and six assists. He failed to find his stroke while on the floor, shooting 5-of-14 from the field and attempting only four shots from long distance.

The Warriors were already without Draymond Green on the night as the All-Star power forward dealt with an injury himself. The Bucks took advantage of the opportunity by erecting a 10-point lead by halftime, and they never looked back.

The Bucks handed the Warriors’ second loss of the season via a 134-111 thrashing at the Bay Area. Klay Thompson led the scoring attack for the Dubs with 24 points, followed by Kevin Durant who finished the game with 17 markers.

On the other end, Eric Bledsoe paced Milwaukee in scoring with 26 points while Giannis Antetokounmpo poured another all-around masterpiece with 24 points, nine rebounds, four assists, two steals, and two blocks.
