If Stephen Curry is on a court
are good news for the world of basketball and the NBA. Perhaps it is very bad news for the rival team, as the Chicago Bulls in San Francisco verified last night after losing 116-102 to the Golden State Warriors in the return of the star to the competition.
Curry led his errant franchise to win with 32 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists. after missing the last five games by severe pain in the back and coccyx area. The guard, in fact, declared that he still feels the pain but prefers to be able to help his teammates.
Without him, Golden State had lost four of its last five meetings. “It is the heart and soul of everything we do”stated Steve Kerr. “The last games have been tough without that dynamic that he brings.”
With Curry, the Warriors competed from top to bottom and they didn’t lose a quarter to Chicago. The base started with three triples and 13 points in the first period, but he stayed on the bench to rest his back after receiving a new blow.
Despite the pain, the Golden State star played a full game and left several house brand plays for the compilation of the best plays of the NBA night. A sore curry, after all, is better than a curry lying at home with ice on your back.
Draymond green contributed with 11 points, 5 rebounds and 9 assists to the victory of the Warriors, who saw their starters make an appearance with double digits. Andrew Wiggins, with 21 points, and Kelly Oubre Jr., with 18 points and 11 rebounds, they were the most outstanding. The noob James Wiseman he finished with 12 points and 4 blocks.
The Bulls had the best version of Nikola Vucevic, author of 21 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists in his second game as a member of Chicago. His arrival has not managed to reverse the negative trend of the Illinois, who have lost their last four games and six of their last seven.
With 19 losses, Billy Donovan asked his pupils for more consistency. Chicago also had all its headlines in double digits, but Zach LaVine was wrong with 12 points and 4 assists (4-16 TC; 1-7 3P).
After the game, the Bulls star noted that the ankle has been injured again and that the annoyances are making his life impossible. This could complicate Chicago’s next few weeks if the player must rest.
