Golden State Warriors claimed an important victory over the Pelicans on Monday thanks to another Steph Curry’s monster performance.
The Warriors’ star guard registered 41 points to lead his team to a 123-104 win over the Pels. After the contest, Draymond Green claimed he would not want to have Curry as an opponent.

“Anytime you step on the floor with Steph Curry, there’s an advantage there,” Green said. “So, teams are terrified of him — and everywhere he runs on the floor, with or without the ball, teams are terrified. That type of gravity, he pulls a lot of weight.
“I wouldn’t want to see a team with Steph Curry on it. We all know what he’s capable of. The guy can take over a game and make it hard for any team in the NBA on any given night.”
Curry is averaging 35 points, 6.5 assists and 5.0 rebounds per contest in his first two games in May, after finishing the month of April with 37 points on 51 percent from the field and 46 percent from deep.
The Warriors improved to 33-32 being 3.5 games behind the sixth seed, which will lead to a playoff berth. Steve Kerr’s team has seven games remaining for the end of the regular season as they hope to avoid the play-in tournament.
