Stephen Curry led the Golden State Warriors to a 120-100 victory over the Sacramento Kings with a record-setting 50-point performance. Curry went 20-of-38 from the field, including 7-of-14 from three-point range, grabbed eight rebounds, and provided six assists. The win propelled the Warriors to the Western Conference semifinals, where they will face off against LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers. Curry’s virtuoso performance earned him accolades from fellow athletes, including Kevin Durant, Patrick Mahomes, and Trae Young.
Durant praised Curry’s legendary tally of 30 50-point outings in his career, while Mahomes encouraged him to go all out. Other NBA stars, including DeMar DeRozan, Kristaps Porzingis, and Kyle Kuzma, were in awe of Curry’s basketball wizardry with his devastating arsenal of shooting and ball-handling skills. Even retired basketball great Manu Ginobili praised Curry’s performance as amazing.
WNBA star Renee Montgomery was impressed by Curry’s ability to single-handedly carry the Warriors to victory, especially when considering teammate Klay Thompson’s sub-par game. Finally, University of South Carolina basketball coach Dawn Staley summed up Curry’s excellence by calling him a “bad mother” not to be trifled with. With the Warriors set to face the Lakers next, Curry’s teammates will look to build on his passionate determination to win and his exceptional talent to challenge James and claim victory in the upcoming matchup.
