Steph Curry spent his time watching basketball on Tuesday, as the Warriors did not have a scheduled NBA game. The Warriors’ superstar watched the matchup between the streaking Utah Jazz and upstart New York Knicks. 

The Knicks started the game strong taking an early double-digit lead thanks to Austin Rivers’ impressive first half. The veteran guard went off for 25 points on 10-of-10 shooting from the field in 12 minutes. 

He made five threes-out-of his five attempts scoring 18 points in the second quarter. As a result, Curry chimed in on Twitter to praise Rivers’ explosive first half performance.

The Knicks could not maintain their hot shooting in the second half scoring just 13 points in the crucial fourth quarter. So. the Jazz stormed back and defeat the New York team to extend their winning streak to nine games.
