Rewatch: Steph's 40 spoils Dell Curry Night
But Dell was probably secretly happy
At 8pm Pacific tonight, NBCSN is going to re-broadcast the December 2nd 2015 game, Golden State Warriors vs Charlotte Hornets.
In this game:
the Warriors moved to a stupendous 20-0 start
Stephen Curry dropped 40 points on Dell Curry Appreciation Night with Dad Dell announcing the game for the Hornets
Steph, after coming out to honor his father at halftime, bombed in 28 points on 10-11 shooting including 5-5 on 3s.
Steph was actually quite civilized for most of the quarter until he gave himself a heat check for the last two minutes, and poured in 14 points that had the crowd groaning with amazement.
Finally, I can’t find video of it, but I love this moment during Steph’s game-ending third quarter. The camera cuts to mama Sonya celebrating and announcer Dell complains “I noticed that mama changed out of my jersey awfully fast. I’m going to have a word with her at home.” (Sonya wore Dell’s jersey for the halftime celebration, but then put on Steph’s for the 3rd quarter.)
Those of you who can watch, enjoy it. Those who can’t, enjoy the highlights above. I might be able to add some game comments if I can sneak free tonight.
