Warriors smack Kings behind Curry's 41-point outburst
IF THE SHOE FITS, LET HIM WEAR IT!
The Golden State Warriors have won their first game of the season, LET’S GO! And it came in a road battle against the Sacramento Kings in a 122-114 victory. The Kangz are a clear division rival, but Golden State continues to beat them in the Golden One Center which has to be an alarming sign for those loyal Kings fans out there.
Curry puts the boots to Sacramento again
There’s lots of stories about the great Michael Jordan, a North Carolina man through and through and a master shoe brand ambassador, absolutely humiliating players for wearing his kicks and playing like trash.
That’s why I had a smirk on my face when Curry, a fellow North Carolina man through and through and a global shoe brand ambassador as well, welcomed young blossoming guard De’Aaron Fox into the Curry Brand shoe family.
Keep in mind that Curry was the one who overpowered a tremendous Fox effort in last year’s playoffs, battling him through 7 games before ultimately destroying Sacramento with a 50-point devastation in the clincher. Giving Fox his shoes was the ultimate sign of respect…and a reminder that no matter what he does, Curry will always be on him.
So in Curry’s return to the scene of the crime, it was only fitting that he and Fox embarked on another duel. Fox dropped 39 points and hit five triples, proving that his deep ball is worthy of being respected as a counter to his elite quickness.
Gotta show the young guy some love! And buckets, lots of buckets. That’s exactly what Curry did, pouring 41 points on the Kings on an preposterously efficient 14-of-19 shooting effort from the field, 7-of-10 beyond the arc.
Check out the man’s shot chart: it looks like he was playing in an empty gym.
Fox is learning another lesson that MJ once told Kobe Bryant: you may wear the shoes, but filling them is another story.
Third Quarter Warriors are back
The 3rd quarter has represented pure dominance during the height of the Golden Empire’s reign. Massive point differential swings could take the Warriors from a double-digit deficit to a game clinching lead in the third period. Check out this headline from their 2022 title run when they led the league with a +232 differential in the penultimate quarter:
Last year that was lacking, as they plummeted down to a meager +24 in the third. That’s why last night’s barrage was a welcome sight, as they exploded to a 39-27 run that put the game far enough out of reach that even a spirited Kings’ final push wasn’t enough.
Road Warriors are back too?
THE GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS GOT THEIR FIRST ROAD WIN OF THE SEASON BABY!!!! Take a look at how they started last year:
Now they’re 1-0 away from Chase Center, proving that they have corrected all bad road vibes from last year. Right?
