Steph Curry put on a show in the Warriors' first home game of the season at the Chase Center. Curry scored an incredible 45 points, while also dishing out 10 assists as the Warriors defeated the LA Clippers in a narrow game. Curry made two clutch three-pointers and made his free throws to help the Warriors win 115-113.
Playing against the Clippers, Curry started the game hot by scoring an incredible 25 points in the first quarter while making all of his attempted shots. But as the Clippers made their way back into the game, it looked like Curry's heroics would not be enough to get the Warriors the win.
But as he came back into the game during the final quarter, he decided to put an end to the Clippers' rally by sinking two important shots to create a big enough lead for them to hold on to.
Curry was clearly in great shooting form. This is why it is confusing why anyone would try to challenge him. But that is exactly what Paul George did during the game as he approached Curry and challenged him to take a shot from the logo.
Curry responded by accepting the challenge, making the shot, and telling George it was not smart to challenge him.
George: "Let's make it interesting. I give you one. You give me one. I'm from the logo with it."
Curry: "I ain't miss one yet, c'mon."
It's hard to understand why George would dare Curry to do this in the middle of a tight game. Before the game, PG had spoken about the Warriors' opening game against the Lakers, and how scary they were in the win despite Curry not being able to make his shots on the night.
Curry was in much better form than his first game against the Lakers. Against the Lakers, Curry had a very poor shooting night and admitted that he 'played like trash' during the game.
Despite his off night, Curry was able to put up a triple-double and help the Warriors seal the deal. And against the Clippers, there was no off night for Curry, as he put up a double-double to seal the win for the Warriors.
