Warriors’ Stephen Curry knows nothing about stress, or at least he knows how best to beat it. He would dance, make faces, chew his mouthguard as if he is making fun of his opponents, and do almost anything to cheer everyone up.
The baby-faced assassin does every justice to that nickname, no matter what. The Warriors are 12-11 and sitting at #8 on the WC table after taking that stinging loss against the Mavericks. They’ve lost five of the last ten games and desperately need to win against the Spurs. But Steph pays no heed to this pressure.
Stephen Curry and his chicken dance
Prior to their important games against the Spurs, the camera caught Steph pulling ‘just Curry things’. While serious practice consumed everyone, here was the good-cop in the team enjoying all he could. The 32-YO is a month away from turning 33, but at times he behaves as good, as his 8-YO daughter Riley Elizabeth Curry. Check out his vibing that gave an injured James Wiseman a great dose of laughter.
The star rookie James Wiseman is out because of a wrist injury, and the officials will reevaluate his situation on Wednesday. So chances are strong that he will miss both the games against the Spurs. Perhaps that’s why Steph decided to cheer him up.
The Warriors at San Antonio Spurs
Steph Curry enjoyed a decent start against the Spurs, where he dropped 13 points in the first quarter alone. His buzzer-beater three followed by a shimmy move marked the initial buzz in the game. Take a look –
For the Spurs, it was guard Dejounte Murray doing all the heavy lifting. By halftime, the Warriors led the game 59-54 after losing a bit of that lead in Q2. While Steph could add only two points to the following quarter, it was Kelly Oubre Jr. who scored 18 points in the first half and looked in control from both ends.
