Steph Curry speaks out on 1st game vs. Zion Williamson
Curry would reign supreme in their first meeting. Curry scored 41 points on 14-26 shooting from the field with eight from beyond the arc. Williamson, the first time All-Star, racked up an impressive 32 points and added eight rebounds.
The Golden State Warriors handled business, defeating the New Orleans Pelicans 123-108. In a game dominated by Curry and the Dubs, the two-time MVP couldn’t help but notice Williamson.
“There’s not really a way to take everything away from him because he’s such a unique physical guy that does things nobody else can really do physically. It seems like he’s got an endless motor for most of the game,” Warriors star Stephen Curry told ClutchPoints.
Curry knocked down eight triples on his way to his ninth 40 point game of the season. As easy as Curry made that look, Williamson drove to the basket and finished with dunks and layups at will, making it look just as easy.
The game was pretty much out of reach after the first quarter following Curry’s 17 point explosion. But Williamson wouldn’t give up. He relentlessly battled the entire game and constantly moved whoever was defending him out of his way.
“But he’s definitely an amazing talent. There’s not anybody like him, I don’t think offensively,” Curry said.
The Warriors will face the Pelicans again Tuesday in New Orleans on the team’s last back-to-back road game of the season.
The last few games are important to both squads. As one team (Pelicans) is trying to qualify to be in the play in game. At the same time, the other team (Warriors) is looking to move up in the seeding of the play in game. Fans should expect a good showing from both teams in the next match.
