Warriors’ Stephen Curry knows nothing about stress, or at least he knows how to beat it. He would dance, make faces, chew his mouthguard as if he is making fun of his opponents, and do almost anything to cheer everyone up.

The baby-faced assassin does justice to his nickname, no matter what. The Warriors hold a 12-11 record and are the eighth seed in the West. They lost five of the last ten games and desperately needed a win against the Spurs, but Steph Curry didn’t allow any pressure to get to him!

Prior to their important game against the Spurs, the camera caught Steph pulling ‘just Curry things’. While serious practice consumed everyone, here was the good-cop in the team enjoying all he could. The 32-YO is a month away from turning 33, but at times he behaves just like 8-YO daughter Riley Elizabeth Curry. Check out his vibing that gave an injured James Wiseman a great dose of laughter. 

Rookie James Wiseman is out because of a wrist injury, and the team will reevaluate his situation on Wednesday. So chances are strong that he will miss both the games against the Spurs. Perhaps that’s why Steph decided to cheer him up.

For the Spurs, it was guard Dejounte Murray who did all the heavy lifting, but it was the Warriors who led the game during halftime. Steph Curry added only two points in the subsequent quarter, but Kelly Oubre Jr. stepped up and scored 18 points in the first half and looked in control from both ends.
