On the right night, Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors can be untouchable. For the Los Angeles Clippers, they came across the Warriors on one of those nights and simply got embarrassed on national TV.
The Clippers performed well, despite losing by 46 points. They scored 98 and tried to hang on. But Curry and the Warriors were simply on another level, winning 144-98 with Curry scoring 43 points in the first three quarters, including a 25 point third quarter.
Curry put an exclamation point on the first half by sinking a half court buzzer beater and sent Warrior fans into a frenzy.
Then Curry closed out the night by draining three’s from anywhere in the Oracle Arena.
Toward the end of the third quarter, Curry drilled a shot from about 30 feet.
Right after that, even with a defender on him, Curry turned and made another three from the same spot.
And then to really finish the Clippers off, Curry took his time to drop a three from just beyond the line.
This kind of shooting from Steph Curry has been seen many times before but it’s always fun to watch someone like Curry put away deep shots and make it look as if it’s the easiest thing in the world.
