The Chase Arena is loud tonight as they get the moment they have been waiting for. After being out for two whole seasons due to injury, Klay Thompson finally made his return to the NBA court. However, he had a slow start to the game. But for Stephen Curry, he came in to redeem himself with a hot start in the fourth quarter itself.

For the last two games, Curry hasn’t been able to find his groove. The Baby-Faced Assassin has shot poorly and failed to make an impact on scoring. Hence, with the return of his teammate, Curry had to be on point. Likewise, he was brilliant through the first quarter and helped the Warriors gain a good lead.

In the last two games, Curry has arguably had his worst stretch for the season. The three point king had made just 2 triples on 19 shots. Moreover, he scored a combined of 23 points in those two games. Hence, coming back to the Chase Center, he needed to set things straight. And he did just that as he splashed 4 threes in the first quarter and has the crowd roaring.
