Steph Curry put together yet another dominating offensive performance on Monday, scoring 41 points while leading the Golden State Warriors to a 123-104 win over the New Orleans Pelicans. It is the ninth time Curry has scored at least 40 points this season, including six times in the last 15 games.
Draymond Green offered his teammate some praise after the win, saying that Curry has been so good that opponents are now “terrified” of having to face him on the court.
“Anytime you step on the floor with Steph Curry, there’s an advantage there,” Green said. “So, teams are terrified of him — and everywhere he runs on the floor, with or without the ball, teams are terrified. That type of gravity, he pulls a lot of weight.”
Curry has been unreal this entire season, as he currently leads the league in scoring with 31.4 points per game while making over 42% of his 12 three-point attempts each game. And he certainly is not stat-padding, as he has managed to keep the Warriors in the playoff race almost entirely on his own.
If Curry can continue to play at this level in the postseason, the Warriors will be a dangerous opponent for any team to have to face, regardless of seeding.
