It was time for the Western Conference heavyweights to battle each other to move up on the board. The Golden State Warriors were looking like they had gained back their rhythm. Stephen Curry making back to back stellar performances had them winning two games back to back, one against the Portland Trail Blazers and one against the Sacramento Kings.

Amidst all the talks about Curry not being good enough to carry the team alone without Klay Thompson, he actually proved all his haters wrong. He absolutely demolished the Blazers by putting up 62 points against them, hence joining the elite 62-point group that includes legends like Magic Johnson, Wilt Chamberlain, Kobe Bryant, Tracy McGrady, and Carmelo Anthony.

Following this, he also put up excellent numbers for a win against the Kings. With 30 points, 9 rebounds, and 8 assists, Curry was on fire and it looked like nobody could put that out.

Stephen Curry leaves Pat Beverley rattled

However, playing for the LA Clippers was not an easy task. Despite Curry’s form in the previous games, he failed to put up a big performance against them. In fact, Eric Paschall was their lead scorer rather than him. This is probably why the Clippers triumphed over the Warriors with a score of 108-101.

As usual, the star player for the LA team was Paul George, who dropped 21 points. However, the stats aren’t what makes Curry who he is; it is his ability to score for his team from any point on the floor and rattle the man assigned to him for defense.

This is precisely what happened with Clippers’ Point guard, Patrick Beverley. In fact, Warriors on NBCS posted the clip and wrote, “Pat Bev all over Steph… doesn’t matter.”

This shows the impact the man has on the game. He did lose to the Clippers, but they are still in the run for a Championship, and who doesn’t want to see the Bay take over the league once again as they did back in the day? However, this can only be possible if Curry is backed by his supporting cast. If that happens, they won’t even need Klay Thompson to lead them to a title.
