After dominating the league for five straight years, Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors took a backseat last season. They finished in the bottom of the barrel with just 15 wins under their belt. However, the team was crippled with injuries and it played a major role in dethroning the Dubs.
Fast forward to the 2020-21 NBA season, the Warriors are trying to make a comeback. But they didn’t have the best of starts to the season. They struggled to find their form and built chemistry for the first 20 games or so.
Now, Stephen Curry is playing lights out and leading the organization back to where they are supposed to be. In fact, the way Steph is playing, he is making a solid case for becoming an MVP this year.
Andrew Wiggins praises Stephen Curry
Talking about Stephen Curry’s MVP campaign. The baby-faced assassin once again proved his worth tonight vs the Miami Heat. Despite having poor first-half performance, Steph took over the game, in a stunning 120-112 overtime victory.
His teammate Andrew Wiggins praised Curry for his efforts and said:
“That’s why he’s great. That’s why he’s one of the greatest players to play the game of basketball. The ability to have a rough first half but come out with that same mindset and take over the ballgame when it needs to be taken over and make big shots after big shots down the stretch. That’s why he is who he is.”
Moving forward, the Dubs need more of the same from their leader if they want to make some noise in the playoffs. Even if the Dubs make the playoffs, they will have their hands full as there are multiple teams that are eyeing for the 2021 NBA Championship.
