Is Stephen Curry back? Rather, it has never left. The Warriors guard has had a difficult January in which his classic offensive success gave way to erratic performances. Such a streak provoked criticism of his game despite the fact that weeks before he was designated as the favorite for the MVP. Last night, in Houston, it was just that Curry who had dazzled everyone since the beginning of the course back in October.
The Warriors guard completed a fantastic performance of 40 points (21 in the fourth quarter) with a 7 of 14 triples, also adding nine assists. After the match, with a 108-122 victory for the Warriors (sixth in a row), the two-time MVP was questioned about the bad time he had had.
“It is the gift and curse of the bar you have set. You get all the praise when things are going well and it’s obviously something to talk about when I don’t quite reach that level. The comment doesn’t bother. When I walk off the court I am the first to judge the way I played. I try to deal with the frustration when that happens over an extended period of time,” he explains.
