Curry was nothing short of brilliant on the whole in Game 1 against the San Antonio Spurs. He piled up 44 points—half of which came in another thrilling third quarter—and 11 assists in the Warriors' 129-127 loss in double overtime.
But that brilliance, and Mark Jackson's attempt to ride it to the finish line, may well have cost Curry and the Warriors in the end. Curry played all but four seconds out of a possible 58 minutes in San Antonio and admitted after the game that his "legs weren't there" . That much was evident during the game, as Steph missed his last seven jump shots while the Spurs whittled away at what had been a 16-point fourth-quarter lead for Golden State.nike 2012 jerseys, Nike nfl jerseys cheap
(Why Curry couldn't get a rest with the Dubs up double digits is another mystery entirely.)
It would behoove the Warriors, then, to sit Steph a wee bit more liberally from here on out. Otherwise, they run the risk of tiring out their rising superstar prior to crunch time.
Or, worse, of suffering a wear-and-tear injury from which there would be no return for Golden State's postseason hopes.
To Curry's credit, he stayed true to his newfound "ironman" status in Game 2, with 22 points, four rebounds, and four assists in 43 massive minutes.cheap nike nfl jerseys,wholesale jerseys cheap
Which, compared to the nearly 58 minutes he played in Game 1, was practically a walk in the park.
