Stephen Curry 9th straight games with 30+ points and GSW 4th straight win

Stephen Curry is on a roll even in this season and even more this past nine games.

He has made many records and broke many as well keeping the Warriors alive for the chance to enter the Play-In tournament.

His stats for the last nine games shows why he is the greatest scorer of all time.

Starting from the game against the Chicago Bulls where he played 30 minutes to score 32 points, 5 rebounds, and 6 assists.

Then he continued his 30 points streak, scoring 36 points, 11 rebounds, and 3 assists in a game against the Miami Heat.

But unfortunately, he missed the match against the Raptors due to a tail bone injury reoccurring.

He returned in the next match against the Atlanta Hawks and dropped 37 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists.

Likewise, he dropped 41 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists when he faced Milwaukee Bucks.

GSW faced the Washington Wizards subsequently and Stephen dropped 32 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists in the game.

He again dropped another 30 plus point game against the Rockets dropping 38 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists.

Stephen continued his exceptional shooting dropping 53 points including 6 rebounds, and 4 assists, and gave the Warriors’ win.

The night became a historic night for Steph as he passed Wilt Chamberlain.

And become the sole warrior to score most points in the franchise history.

He continued his historic night again in the match against the Thunder where he dropped 42 points, 6 rebounds, and 8 assists along with 11 three-pointers.

This was the second time in Curry’s career that he has made at least 10 3-pointers in consecutive games. 

Stephen continued his 30 plus points shooting streak again tonight in the match against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

GSW’s Star player Stephen started slow but finished strong.

Stephen started slowly in the game against the Cleveland Cavaliers as he dropped only 14 points in the first half.

Even the Warriors started slowly as they gave 11 points lead to Cleveland early in the game. 

Eventually, Cleveland took 3 point lead in the 1st quarter. But in the 2nd quarter, the Warriors bounced back and scored 35 points in the 2nd quarter.

As they entered the third quarter, the Warriors were up by 11 points but still, Stephen was not able to find the rhythm.

Curry didn’t drop in his first 3-pointer until there was 1:34 remaining in the third quarter.

But as he dropped the 3-pointer, he soon followed that with another 3-pointer on the next possession.

He started to pace up and scored 12 of his 33 points in the third and the Warriors took a 10-point lead into the fourth.

Ultimately, Steph finished the night dropping his ninth consecutive 30 plus point.

As he made 33 points to give the Warriors a 119-101 win over Cleveland.

Strong plays from the Warriors’ bench.

Even though the Warriors started slowly in the 1st quarter but they picked up the rhythm in the 2nd quarter dropping 35 points.

And gave the Warriors 11 point lead into the third quarter.

As Stephen Curry was not able to heat up until the third quarter it was up to other players to make plays to give the Warriors the lead.

The Warriors’ bench was able to deliver at the knick of the time with Juan Toscano-Anderson’s career-high 20 points coming off the bench.

They helped the Warriors in the game until Curry was able to find his rhythm and close the game with 119-101 in Thursday win over Cleveland.

“That was really a good win for us,” head coach Steve Kerr said. “We just had to grind it out.
Our first four-game win streak of the year, we’re in a really good place right now mentally, spiritually.”
 
On the second night of a back-to-back following Wednesday night’s win in Oklahoma City, the Warriors’ bench support and great plays gave the Warriors their fourth straight win. 
 
 Golden State’s bench outscored Cleveland’s 1st quarter lead as Toscano-Anderson went 8-for-9 and added seven rebounds and three assists.
 
Jordan Poole had 14 points and four assists and Damion Lee finished with 11 points and five rebounds, all coming off the bench.
 
Starter Andrew Wiggins also played well and helped the second unit that started the second and fourth quarters.
 
He eventually finished with 23 points, six rebounds, and six assists playing 34 minutes.
 
“We’re in a good rhythm, we’re playing together, the defense is coming along,” Wiggins said after helping hold Cleveland to 42.2% shooting. “I feel like that’s the main thing.”

Juan Toscano-Anderson impressive game.

While Curry’s scoring continues to impress everyone, another Warrior’s also not behind and continue to impress with their plays.

One of such Warrior is Juan Toscano-Anderson. The 27-year-old forward was out of the rotation before.

But since James Wiseman’s injury, he is given more playing time and he continues to impress during his playtime.

He helped support Curry and the Warriors when it was needed the most and kept them in the game.

 
“He understands the game and he’s a competitor. He was all over the ball in that second quarter defensively, which I thought kind of changed the tone of the game.”
 

Even though the Cavaliers (20-35) aren’t the strongest of opponents, but Golden State outscored and took the win on the second night of a back-to-back on the road.

With the win, the Warriors take sole possession of the No. 9 seed in the Western Conference.

And are within a half-game of Memphis for the No. 8 seed. Golden State is back to .500 for the first time since March 23.

“Whenever you got No. 30 on your team you’re a contender,” Toscano-Anderson said, “as long as everything else around him is clicking.

We’re stringing together some wins and I think if we can put ourselves in a position to compete for the playoffs.

I don’t think any team is looking at the playoff standings and saying “We want Golden State.”

With this win, the Warriors (28-28) have now won five of their last six going into Saturday’s game in Boston.

Cleveland falls to the Warriors

Even though Cleveland took the 1st quarter win over the GSW but soon fall to the Warriors’ bench.

They were not able to find the answer for the hot Warriors’ bench and soon lost their lead and eventually, the Warriors took 11 point lead at the end.

Collin Sexton dropped 30 points, while Darius Garland dropped 20 points and Jarett Allen made 17 points for Cleveland.

They will face Chicago Bulls on Sunday for the next game.
