Stephen Curry’s game-winning performance against the Miami Heat is praised by the GSW All-Star
Thursday night’s 123-110 victory over the Miami Heat by the Golden State Warriors saw Stephen Curry maintain his strong start to the year. Curry led the way with 33 points, adding seven rebounds, nine assists, and seven made 3-pointers to his total.
In the fourth quarter, “Steph” made a flurry of difficult jump shots for 10 of his 33 points to knock the Heat out of contention. As seen by his fourth 30-point performance in five games so far this season, performances like this one have become commonplace for Curry. Curry’s teammates are consistently in awe of his genie
“When he gets in that mentality, it’s like a video game,” Warriors All-Star forward Andrew Wiggins said after the game. He is one of the GOATs because of this.
With 18 points and 10 rebounds, Wiggins had a solid game of his own. It was his first double-double of the year. Klay Thompson, a shooting guard for the Warriors, finished the game with 19 points and five made three-pointers.
With a season-high 18 made 3-pointers on 39.1% 3-point shooting overall, the Warriors as a team also enjoyed their best shooting performance of the season. Additionally, according to Warriors head coach Steve Kerr, it was the group’s strongest defensive effort:
“I believed that we played our finest defensive game to date. It just seemed like a more typical Warriors performance in which we were continually getting stops before taking off rushing. I believed we played our best on both ends, save from a few foolish giveaways.”
