San Francisco, CA – The Chase Center is usually where Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry has massive games. Wednesday night, it was an opposing player who had an enormous performance in this arena. One game since Curry's 10th 50 point game of his career, last year's No. 1 pick in the draft Anthony Edwards dropped 48 points in the Warriors home.
“He shot the ball really well tonight and made some big shots when they were trying to come back, especially the second half, but he's obviously skilled. He's super talented,” the Warriors told ClutchPoints.
Edwards' 48 points went unnoticed for most of the night because his team trailed most of the game. It was a steady individual performance that turned into a giant game. But Curry and the Warriors were the superior team, and they made sure his 48 points didn't matter much.
Andrew Wiggins had the best game of his season, scoring a team-high 35 points. He started the game 10-of-10 from the field before missing a shot. He's the first Warrior to go 9-of-9 or better in a single half. The last player was Monta Ellis in the first half in 2008 against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Stephen Curry finished the game with 25 points on 8-of-16 shooting and 3-of-9 from deep. He added 5 rebounds and 6 assists to round out another solid game.
Next, the Warriors will go to battle against Zach Lavine and the Chicago Bulls. This game will be the first major test the Dubs have faced in a while. The Bulls are a deep, talented team that should make some noise when the playoffs come. But so are the Golden State Warriors, and that's what will make this game a must-watch.
