Stephen Curry went supernova in the eleven games prior to Wednesday’s contest vs. the Washington Wizards. The Warriors fell to Bradley Beal and the Wizards as Scott Brooks’ team won its seven straight game.
After finishing the contest vs. Washington with 18 points on 7-of-25 shooting, Curry shared his thoughts on the 11-game streak of 30 points or more that came to an end.
(via Nick Friedell of ESPN):
“It was a great run,” Curry said. “It was something that hadn’t been done before. It was going to end at some point. Now you got to start another one. So it’s just a matter of the next-play mentality. Just try to get rejuvenated when we go home — to do it home, road, some big games, put a streak together.
It was a special ride, for sure. And never really get too hyped up on individual streaks or accolades like that. There were some historical names that I was able to pass. And doing something at this age was pretty special.”
Curry became the oldest player to score 30+ points in 11 consecutive games and the first player to net 30 or more since Kobe Bryant in 2012.
On the season, Curry is leading the league with 31.1 points per game to go along with 5.9 assists, 5.5 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 5.1 three-pointers made per contest.
