After a triple-double on opening night against LA Lakers, Stephen Curry is cooking LA Clippers in his first home game at Chase Center. Golden State Warriors outscored the LA Clippers 44-27 in the first quarter aided by Steph’s perfect shooting and Jordan Poole’s deep range.
Dub nation was on its feet watching Curry dish shot after shot in the first quarter. He is like fine wine, getting better year after year. At the age of 33, he is playing like he just entered his prime. Stephen Curry was the scoring champion last season and it looks like he is ready to repeat that achievement.

Golden State Warriors took full advantage of LA Clippers’ sloppiness in the first quarter to establish a double-digit lead. Andrew Wiggins and Andre Iguodala’s defensive presence limited the Clippers to just 27 points with Paul George evidently struggling from the field.
“Steph Going for 75 tonight”- Damian Lillard amazed by Stephen Curry
Stephen Curry scored 25 points on 9-9 shooting in the first quarter and 5-5 beyond the arc. He absolutely torched the LA Clippers after what he believes was a ‘trash game’ he had against LA Lakers on opening night.
NBA Twitter was hyped by Stephen Curry’s perfect shooting. Some went as far as to say he will break Wilt Chamberlain’s record of 100 points in a game. However, that seems like a bit of a stretch. LeBron James, Damian Lillard and Ja Morant marvelled at the quarter Curry had.

LeBron James and Stephen Curry have had a finals rivalry for over 5 years but they never back down from appreciating each other publically. Recently Curry spoke at length about LeBron James’ longevity in the NBA. LeBron James called Curry the MVP last season and expressed his amazement towards the super-efficient first quarter tonight.

LA Clippers made a huge comeback in the second quarter to take a 1-pt lead before the halftime break. Stephen Curry had 3 turnovers in the second and missed several shots as well. Golden State Warriors have to take advantage of Kawhi Leonard’s absence and reduce the turnovers.
