Stephen Curry had one of those Monday nights inside the Chase Center against the Atlanta Hawks. You know, one of those nights where you start out hot and get hotter and hotter as the game goes on until you look up and have lost 50 points on the fools. Yes, neither do I. But that’s exactly the kind of night Curry had against the Hawks, becoming the oldest player (33) in NBA history to post a 50-10 game, surpassing Wilt Chamberlain, who did so at age 31. . Two-time WNBA and CBS champion / TNT analyst Candace Parker called her shot on Curry before she made it happen.
Curry came close to making this evening even more notable, dropping three rebounds before a triple double. Steph is hitting another record, though, recording his fourth 50-point game at the age of 32 or older. Only Michael Jordan has more with five.
Chef Curry was so strong against the Hawks that opposing broadcasters got mad at the idea of him aiming for the big 5-0. Atlanta’s play-by-play announcer Bob Rathbun made a big exception to Curry going after that 50th point in a game they were leading by more than 20 points. Hawks legend Dominique Wilkins tried to give a player’s perspective, but Rathbun wasn’t trying to listen to him.
It’s truly amazing how so many grown men all feel like Drake for something like this. Russell Westbrook recently got mad at Darius Bazley OKC Thunder for taking a dunk with 1.5 seconds left in a match that OKC clearly had in hand. If the Hawks didn’t want Steph to lose $ 50 on their domes, then they would have to find a way to stop or slow him down. The tirade that Rathbun continued to make was pitiful and ferocious. Everyone who plays on that pitch is a professional. The Hawks were more than welcome to fend off what Curry subjected them to all night.
The Warriors, led by Curry, are taking their pound of meat away from the championship at the start of the season. They were listening to all the speeches about them being completed and about people questioning Curry’s skill. All those receipts have been tucked away in the underwear drawer, and now the Warriors (9-1) are pulling them out and cashing them on everyone’s ass around the NBA.
It was a memorable and historic night for Steph, but we know it’s not the end of the game. This Warriors organization is looking to get back on top after two years full of injuries and uncertainties. It looks like Golden State is on its way, as it currently has the best record in the NBA. I mean who saw it coming?? It is truly impressive.
