The Golden State Warriors added a new victory to their impressive record after beating the difficult Memphis Grizzlies Thursday night. The Dubs faced a dangerous team, which ranks 4th in the West. Yet, Stephen Curry was too much to bear for them.
Golden State won an entertaining game 113-104, led by Steph's 46 points in another magical night for the two-time NBA MVP. Curry faced Dillon Brooks, a player who says enjoys guarding The Chef. It's easy to imagine he didn't like that last night, as Steph torched the Grizzlies.
Before the game, Draymond Green somehow predicted what would happen later. When a reporter said Brooks was a hard opponent for Steph, Green disagreed with that notion. The former Defensive Player of the Year claimed he doesn't think somebody enjoys going against Curry, and Brooks wasn't the exception.
Draymond: “Who gives him trouble?”
Reporter: “Dillon Brooks. A guy who likes to defend Steph.”
Draymond: “I don't think nobody in the world likes to defend Steph. I ain't buying that s**t, I mean stuff.”
Well, the game and the scoreboard showed that Curry didn't have any issue against Brooks or the Grizzlies. He cooked them, recording a 46-point game that allowed his team to stay 0.5 games away from the Phoenix Suns.
Curiously, the Warriors and Suns will clash tomorrow in one of the most anticipated Christmas Day games. The series is tied at one game per side, so the winner of Saturday's matchup will get the advantage and the No. 1 seed in the West.
The Dubs hope to have an inspired Curry, shooting their way to the victory against the toughest rivals in the Western Conference. Nobody on the Suns will give Curry trouble, either, so Draymond and the rest of the Warriors must be confident their superstar is in for a great game.
