Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors secured their ninth victory of the season after beating the LA Clippers 124-107 on Wednesday night in Oakland. As Curry exited the arena, he crossed paths with his son Canon, who was in attendance to watch the game. After greeting his father before making his exit, Canon hilariously mimicked his dad's signature 'Night-Night' celebration.
Steph Curry is obviously teaching his young boy how to celebrate a blowout win. It was a fitting reaction from Canon as his father sent home the Oakland crowd happy once again. Curry finished the game with 22 points and nine assists.
Here's the full clip:
Steph Curry is putting up MVP numbers while the Golden State Warriors struggle
Despite approaching his mid-30s, Steph Curry is not showing signs of slowing down. He won his fourth ring with the Golden State Warriors last season and won his first Finals MVP. This season however, his team's win-loss record is not on par with his performances.
Steph Curry is averaging 31.6 points, 7.2 assists, 6.6 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game. He's ranked number six on Sportsnaut's MVP ladder list. His best game by far this season was against the Phoenix Suns on November 16. He scored 50 points, but the Warriors still lost 130-119.
At this point, it's safe to assume that Curry is doing everything he can to carry the Warriors. Unfortunately for him, the rest of the squad is having difficulty keeping up. Even the veterans are struggling. Klay Thompson is currently shooting a career-low 37.9% from 3-point territory. Draymond Green is not the same defensive player anymore and has struggled to lead the team's defense at times.
Besides the locker room leaders, the Warriors' bench has also underperformed. James Wiseman was sent back to G-League affiliate Santa Cruz Warriors, who recently lost against the South Bay Lakers. Jordan Poole is playing inconsistently, scoring 30+ points on one night and then less than 10 points the next.
The only real help Steph Curry has at the moment is Andrew Wiggins, who has consistently put up decent numbers this season. Wiggins is currently averaging 19.1 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game. He put on an impeccable performance against the Clippers, finishing with 31 points on 12-of-18 shooting from the field.
