Performance Of The Night: Stephen Curry
We had some fun performances, and then we had some strange performances, the fun ones being Ja Morant, Joel Embiid, and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. They are so fun to watch because they make the game of basketball look effortless.
Their strangest performance would have been the Pelicans, the entire roster. While it was a team win over the Nets, it was odd. Not one player went for over 20 points, and seven players went for double-digit nights, but rarely does that happen in the association.
Anyway, I won’t dissect what happened tonight, so could we discuss the winner that everyone should discuss? Wardell Stephen Curry II. I swear this man is too good at what he does; what he pulls off is incredible. Some of his shot selections were out of this world, which means nobody could replicate him.
His stat line was also something else, with an impressive 36 points, two rebounds, six assists, four steals, and one block. Not only those numbers, but he was beyond efficient from the field. He shot 12/20 (60%) from the field and 4/9 (44%) from beyond the arc.
What he was doing on both ends of the court is why he won tonight’s award. Curry went the extra mile to get Golden State their win and to get CourtSideHeat’s award.
