So it turns out Steph Curry can still shoot. The defending MVP finished with 46 points, three days after his league-record streak of 157 games with at least one 3 was snapped when he went 0 for 10 on 3-point tries in a 117-97 road loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. “I was hard on myself in practice the last two days. I had pretty good shooting sessions,” he said. “I don’t overreact to games like that whether I go 0 for 10 or 2 for 12 or whatever it is. My process is the same, but I had another level of focus the last two days trying to get my rhythm back and see the ball go in.” Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson also both had solid games, combining for 46 points on 19-37 shooting.
Although it won’t be the story from this game, Anthony Davis once again was special. 33 points and 13 rebounds on 11-18 shooting in the loss should not be overlooked as he continues a fantastic start to the season. The pelicans need a win in their next game at Sacramento on Tuesday in their first visit to the Kings’ new Golden 1 Center. It’s the middle game of a three-game road trip. The pelicans are now 0-7.
FINAL SCORE: Pelicans-106 at Warriors-116
