Warriors Win Ends Fairytale Run for Stephen Curry as Whopping 268 Game Streak Faces Unfortunate Fate

Warriors Win Ends Fairytale Run for Stephen Curry as Whopping 268 Game Streak Faces Unfortunate Fate

The Golden State Warriors were able to register a narrow victory over the Portland Trail Blazers with 118-114 on the scoreboard. Klay Thompson added 28 points, 4 rebounds, and 1 assist in 29 minutes. Trayce Jackson Davis piled up 14 points, 8 rebounds, and 2 assists in 18 minutes. Andrew Wiggins scored 27 points. But despite the victory, it was a tough night for the two-time MVP Stephen Curry.

The three-point veteran and two-time MVP Stephen Curry had a hard time during the game. And other Warriors stars had to shoulder the responsibility to shore up the team to victory. And the game ended with a big disappointment for the star as it ended his 268-game streak.

End to Stephen Curry’s 3-pointer streak

Stephen Curry is credited with revolutionizing basketball in terms of scoring 3-pointers beyond the arc. A day after the star piled 3500 3-pointers, he faced a heartbreaking time. He played for 31 minutes and could only tally 7 points, 7 assists, and 2 rebounds.

As his game looked so frozen, his fans on social media flooded to comment upon the same. What was even more disappointing was that it was the first time in his 268 games that he could not score a single 3-pointer in the game.

His streak started on December 1 2018 against Detroit Pistons. Curry kept on hitting the nail on its head from the distance for five long years. He is the master of the craft and had his last such game against the Milwaukee Bucks in November 2018. Also, Stephen missed all nine of his 3-pointer attempts in Game 5 just before the Warriors won the cup.

Curry was proving to be solid as steel for the Warriors to improve their standing after back-to-back stellar performances but a day after the iconic milestone disappointed his fans.

A heartbreak after an epic match

Stephen Curry is the leader in the NBA world when comes to scoring the three-pointers. Happy over his own 3500 3-pointers, Curry celebrated the exploits of Keegan Murray too in the press conference. Murray scored 12 3-pointers in the game and that astonished Curry as he heaped praises. He expressed joy and suggested Murray be consistent. A day later he needed the comforting words of his coach.

Steve Keer offered words of encouragement to the star. He recognized what a pillar of support Curry has been to the team.

He said, “We can’t rely on Steph to bail us out on every single night. It was a tough night for him, but that’s what a team is supposed to be about. Everybody filling in for each other, different guys stepping up each night. That’s a great sign because he’s carried us for long enough this year. We need to give him more help.”

What do you think how big a disappointment it is for Steve Kerr in terms of repeating it at this age? Let us know in the comments.
