5 takeaways from Warriors' runaway win vs. Nuggets in Game 2
After splitting through a pair of defenders and converting on a layup, Stephen Curry summed up the state of his play with his actions, words and body language.
It sure looks like it. In only his second game since missing the past month with a left foot injury, Curry led the Warriors to a 126-106 win against the Denver Nuggets in Game 2 of their first-round
Monday by posting 34 points while shooting 12-for-17 from the field and 5-for-10 from 3-point range along with four assists in only 23 minutes.
As he scanned the box score afterwards, Draymond Green’s eyes lit up before shouting. Green struggled processing that Curry finished with a +32.
“It’s what you expect of Steph Curry, but I thought that was huge,” Green said. “To be plus 32 in 23 minutes, it doesn’t get much better than that.”
When the Warriors discussed their goal, did they have to construct a sales pitch to Curry? Or did he just accept the decision without trying to convince the Warriors to take a different approach?
“Steph is Steph. You don’t need to sell him on anything,” Kerr said. “He’s very unique. He’s incredibly humble and incredibly arrogant on the floor.
