Yesterday, Steph celebrated his 33rd birthday before going head to head against the Utah Jazz. Before the game, however, teammate and longtime friend Draymond Green posted a heartfelt post for Curry and even called him the G.O.A.T.

Green wrote, “Happy born day to my brotha! Been on this climb together for 9 years. But, even more important than the climb, 9 years ago I gained a brother for a lifetime. Got your back til the casket drop 30! Now keep doing G.O.A.T. shit! Ruin the game!”

Ever since their debut with the Warriors, Green and Curry have developed a great relationship on the court and off it. With a core group of the players missing from their finals run in 2019, Steph and Green have become veteran leaders for the team.

With a new-look roster, the Warriors are battling for a spot in the playoffs. Coach Kerr will hope that the veterans can lead the young side to a playoff run.

Considering the blistering form the Jazz were in and how inconsistent the Dubs have been, the Warriors were seen as the underdogs in the matchup. But you can never underestimate a team that has Steph Curry.

Even Andrew Wiggins chipped in against the Jazz. He scored 28 points while shooting 12-16 shots from the field. These performances were enough for the Dubs to defeat the Jazz 131-119. This win against the Jazz snapped the Dubs’ four-game losing streak. They now have a record of 20 wins and 19 losses and are the ninth seed in the stacked Western Conference.

The Warriors have lacked consistency all season long. Can they finally find some momentum now and cement their position as a playoff team?
