With the rise of the Golden State Warriors and Stephen Curry as one of the greatest shooters of all-time, the National Basketball Association has cashed in on his huge popularity with young fans, pushing him as the new face of the National Basketball Association. After hosting the Kings, defending champion Golden State goes on a six-game road trip spanning 10 days.
The Warriors have scored 253 points over their last two games, wins over the Chicago Bulls and the New Orleans Pelicans. The Warriors won, 110-95.
Warriors cited Curry's injury, which is listed as a right hand contusion, as expected wear and tear through the National Basketball Association season rather than any specific incident that caused him pain, according to the Mercury News .
GSW: Andre Iguodala is considered doubtful due to a sore left knee.
This will represent the fourth time in five games that Durant has sat out.
On the other side, the under is 14-3 in the Warriors' last 17 games when playing a team with a winning percentage below.400. He injured the ankle November 18 against Philadelphia, missed the next night's game in Brooklyn and then came back to play November 22 against Oklahoma City.
Curry is averaging a team-leading 26.0 points, 6.3 assists and 5.2 rebounds while Durant, the 2017 NBA Finals MVP, has averaged 24.7 points, 6.8 rebounds and 4.7 assists this season.
"It's great for the fans because they get to see how talented our team really is", Thompson said.
Now, to be fair to Curry, even though it doesn't look like he was in a rush, we all know that if he did decide to sign this kid's jersey, all the fans behind the camera would have been expecting the same treatment, and no way would Curry have time for every fan in attendance.
