'The Splash Bros', Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, played tremendously well against the Houston Rockets. The Golden State Warriors defeated the Rockets 127-120 thanks to their solid performances. However, Rockets rookie Tari Eason's mother had some less than nice things to say about Curry on social media.

Eason's mom, Teroya, claimed that Steph Curry was only scoring because her son was on the bench. She also suggested Curry wasn't doing much on the court while Eason was on the floor. Teroya went on to state she couldn't believe that the home crowd was cheering for the Warriors' superstar.

In a nutshell, she didn't hold back:

"He [Curry] made 80% of his splashes when my son was sitting down. He was pretty dry when Tari Eason was in motion. I’m watching mf's cheer for this mf in my home gym right now while he’s talking to my media and I wanna burn this bit*h to the ground."

As much as Tari Eason's mother was showing her undying support for his home team, many felt she went a little overboard. But most agree it doesn't matter what Teroya says; in the end, Curry and the Warriors had the last laugh.

After struggling to find his rhythm earlier this season, it appears Klay Thompson has found his groove. Thompson caught fire in the first quarter when he scored 20 points. 12 of those points came from behind the arc, wherein he shot with 80% efficiency.

It was nearly impossible to stop him as he kept hitting shots regardless of whether there was a hand in his face or not.

After a slow start, Steph Curry suddenly came alive in the third quarter when he scored 16 points. Like Thompson in the first half, Curry had a hot hand. 'The Splash Bros' took over in the last quarter, drilling a total of five threes combined to secure the Golden State Warriors' victory.

Steph Curry ended up having a double-double with 33 points and an impressive 15 assists. What's even more impressive is that Klay Thompson finally found a way out of his slump. Thompson scored 41 points and made 10-of-13 three-pointers.
